Etymology

Yamata no Orochi is based on the Yo-kai of the same name. The eight-headed serpent that terrorized Japan during the age of mythology, and demanded young maidens in sacrifice. The god Susanoo, who had been exiled after a dramatic fall-out with his sister, the sun goddess Amaterasu, rescues the princess Kushinada before she's sacrificed to Orochi, defeating him by offering him eight barrels of sake then cutting off the heads of the inebriated beast one by one. Susanoo's heroic deeds earn him Amaterasu's forgiveness, and he's once again allowed into the realm of the gods.
