Bakemono Raiders



Mothers often warn their children whilst young 'don’t wander off or the Bakemono will get you!' said more in jest than warning.
Little did they know that the monsters of fable would soon become reality.When in numbers the Bakemono appear fearless and swarm forward from the shadows, a tide of hate intent on drowning those before them.
The will of the brave faltering and the sky darkening is often a prelude to their appearance.

The most expensive of the 'Horde' Bakemono, Raiders are easily the hardiest. So long as they aren't Surpised, Raiders have Parry (1), and Armour (2) which goes a long way in upping their ability to live through a melee. And that's what's expected of Raiders: survive. These guys are meant to hold an area, and that's about it. Because of this, they combo well with Archers and Boomers, as well as support pieces that don't like being in melee.


  • The best 'Horde' Bakemono for Zone Control, as they may actually live through more than one melee
  • Low cost, flexible, and disposable. Do not be afraid to use your Bakemono in suicidal ways if it stops your opponent from scoring


  • Very unlikely to actually damage an enemy, thanks to Defensive and their inferior weapons
  • Like all other 'Horde' Bakemono, they pay a 2-3 Rice additional cost to use "Summon from the Shadows"
