Yamatan, like Venoct, could be based on the Yamata no Orochi, but while Venoct's design mixes it with the image of the ninja snake summoner Orochimaru from Jiraiya Gōketsu Monogatari, Yamatan is much closer in appearance to the great serpent. The Kojiki (a text on Shintoism and the origins of the country from the 8th century, and the oldest written record in Japanese history) describes Orochi as an enormous eight-headed snake with a bloody red belly and eyes like winter cherries, large enough that its body can lie across eight mountains and eight valleys, and plants and moss grow all over it. The number eight is a symbol of the infinite in Eastern culture, thus its recurrence symbolizes the creature's immeasurable power and girth.
Yamatan is a portmanteau of part of "Yamata no Orochi", specifically, the "eight branches" (Japanese: 八岐,Yamata) part and "tongue" (Japanese: タン,Tan), referencing the 8 long tongues this Yo-kai sports.
Slurpent is a portmanteau of "Serpent" and "Slurp", referencing his 8 long tongues.
Octoserpie is a portmanteau of "Ocho (eight)" and "Serpiente (snake)", referencing his 8 long tongues.
