Kiri no Oni was a spawn of an ancient and deadly creature which was believed to be a hunting demon.
Kiri no Oni was an enormous arachnid creature with many eyes. Its long limbs were covered with razor-sharp ridges, and taper down to blade-like claws. It was a native denizen of the Shadowlands. It was difficult to reach it in a close combat, so missile attacks were the easiest way to deal with.  The original Kiri emerged from the Festering Pit of Fu Leng. 
Its spawns were independent and solitary. Vaguely resembling a huge spider, they hunted their preys by building highly elaborate traps, including webs and other deadly pits. Their tactics were to trap and immobilize their opponents before devouring them.  Cunning and dangerous, these massive oni prefered nonetheless to remain hidden as much as possible and their intelligence was limited to the making of their traps.
