Naming Conventions? Edit

What's the rule as far as naming the oni go? For example, Kyoso no Oni's name comes before, while Oni no Akuma's name comes after. I had always interpreted it as "Soandso no Oni" is the original oni and "Oni no Soandso" is the name of Soandso no Oni's spawn. Can anyone clarify this for me, please? --HemlockMartinis 21:54, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

AEG has waffled back and forth, and it basically has to do with the lack of Japanese language skills among the developers. In Creatures of Rokugan, everything was changed to "X no Oni" (including Akuma and Yakamo), so I think that's the official way to do it now, but originally, it was pretty freely interchangeable. ~ShibaRyu~ Rings.png Calendar.gif 03:37, 31 December 2006 (UTC)
Aye, they do the same in the RPG materials too. D'you think we should just pick one and stick with it? --HemlockMartinis 07:56, 31 December 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, we should. And since the official attempt to be uniform was "X no Oni", I'm thinking that's how we should go. Redirects will be a must, of course. ~ShibaRyu~ Rings.png Calendar.gif 19:18, 31 December 2006 (UTC)


You guys do know that this stuff has absolutely zero to do with actual folklore, right? None of these things looks even remotely like an oni. 15:52, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Welcome to Rokugan, which isn't Japan. ~ShibaRyu~ Rings.png Calendar.gif 16:07, 9 May 2007 (UTC)


I Unstubbed the article, with all this bunch of info i got from Book of the Shadowlands, the article is not so much a stub anymore... Euterpia 13:17, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

Looks good. Although the Banishing an Oni section needs references, as do the paragraphs in the Rogue Oni. --Majushi 21:21, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
