Japanese Mythology in Popular Culture - Enma

Enma

  • King Yenma from the Dragon Ball series is based off of the the god Enma, taking on the same exact role as him by acting as the judge of those who have died, whether it be going to hell, heaven, being reincarnated, or etc.
  • Shikieiki Yamaxanadu from the Touhou Project series is the only known enma to reside in the land in which the game series takes place. Unlike the normal depiction of Enma in mythology, Shikieiki has practically no resemblance to Enma, but does carry out the same role as Enma. Her subordinate is the shinigami Komachi Onozuka.
