Brute (妖鬼, Yōki, lit Mystical Ogre) is a race of demons in the Megami Tensei series. As the name suggests, the majority of these demons are physical attackers; many of them are variants of the basic Oni. Albeit ambiguous with the Touki race, Brute is Chaos aligned, while Touki is Neutral. Moreover, with few exception from other Asian legends, most Brute demons were originated from Japanese lore.
