Amanojaku (あまのじゃく - the original spelling of the name Amanojaku syllabic alphabet-kana, 天 — - the original spelling of the name Amanojaku hieroglyphs-kanji) - "literally heavenly evil spirit".

In Japanese mythology, a small but extremely malicious demon capable of reading people's minds and predicting the future. Pushes people to do bad things. It is usually depicted as a kind of small devil-they (large evil fanged and horned humanoid demons with red, blue or black skin).

It is generally believed that the image of amanojaku comes from Amanosagume (天)), an evil goddess in Shinto myths, who shares the quality of the character of amanojaku to do contrary to what is said and his ability to read a person's heart.
