A-Yokai-A-Day: Basan

Bgwak! There’s really not much to say about today’s yokai. The basan is a ghost-fire breathing chicken. There’s no mention of what this actually does, being ghost-fire, other than looking pretty dang spooky.

I think this is one yokai I was required to paint. It fits right in with the Chickens of the World series, so it would almost be wrong not to mention it. Plus, I really like the idea of a ghost-fire breathing chicken. It’s similar to another one of my favorite monsters, the English cockatrice, a chicken with a deadly gaze that can kill people in an instant, or turn them to stone. Seriously, who comes up with this stuff??

  1. This is sooooo coooool

    My No.1 wish is to see the real fire breathing chicken and control it, like pokemon and send it into the night to people I really hate and torture them to death, or at least burn them in the behind.

  2. I’m sure you get this all the time it I would LOVE to purchase a print if this! If not physical I would absolutely purchase a digital version and print it out myself. I just want it in my house. 🙏 Thank you for your time
