Waden One as seen in Dark Sakuradayama.

Waden One is a location in the Raidou Kuzunoha duology.


Design Edit

Waden One was designed to intentionally resemble Tesla towers, theoretical constructs originally proposed by noted engineer Nikola Tesla as structures designed to wirelessly transmit information in a massive scale. Tesla towers were designed for early wireless telephony and broadcasting. Though there were originally several attempts to create them, most notably in Tesla's Wardenclyffe laboratory, the design was never completed due to a lack of funding.


Raidou Kuzunoha Vs. The Soulless ArmyEdit

Waden One is a radio tower constructed by the Army in Sakuradayama, the first in a proposed network of towers as part of an ambitious project spearheaded by General Munakata. However, Waden One's true purpose was to transmit corrupt radio waves set to a special frequency tailored to force the creation of Hiruko in the citizens of the Capital. These radio waves were also intended to draw Hiruko into the tower, amassing great amounts of the creatures into the tower for use in the Soulless God Oumagatsu superweapon. Along with the Tai-Itsu satellite, Waden One was the power source of the project.

Raidou Kuzunoha the XIV infiltrated Waden One through the Dark Realm. While the tower is working normally in the real world, Dark Sakuradayama's Waden One is swarming with Hiruko. At the very top of the tower, Raidou confronted Munakata, and was forced to battle Mishaguji-sama when he refused to join forces with the General. At the end of the battle, Rasputin intervened, casting Raidou into the Akarana Corridor and sending him into the home reality of Raido Kuzunoha the XIV.

Later on, the version of Dark Sakuradayama in Raido Kuzunoha the XIV's world of Waden One was visited, though due to the time differential, Waden One was at the time bereft of Hiruko.

Raidou Kuzunoha Vs. King AbaddonEdit

Waden One is revisited in a minor role in the sequel, where a Case File indicates a false Raidou has taken residence upon the radio tower. In reality, it's Raido, the alternate version of Raidou encountered the previous game, who has been pursuing the demon lord Pagan Mara through the Akarana Corridor and was stranded in Raidou's world with no way back.
