Yamame is the Stage 1 boss in Subterranean Animism, but unlike the previous bosses, she is quite bright and has no hatred for Humans. Her ability to manipulate illness makes many youkai and humans hate her, but she won't use it for no reason. And she is quite well known in the underground. During the events, she suspected the Heroine for a youkai above ground and attacked her, but like all previous bosses, she was defeated.

Fun Facts

  • The name Kurodani is written with characters that mean "black valley". Yamame may be written as "山女" (lit. mountain girl), which refers to a mythical demon in Japanese folklore.
  • In an interview released in Cara☆mel with CiLR 7, ZUN mentioned that he figured her name was particularly "spiderish", maybe because spiders are all about their eyes (me), and pointed out that the number of buttons on her outfit added up to give her the proper number of eyes for a spider. (Yamame might also be written as 八ま目.)
  • She somewhat resembles an Argiope spider.
  • Subterranean Animism's demo CD featured Yamame on the cover upside down. It didn't take long for fan-art of her hanging upside down to come up. Many fans were disapointed when she didn't do this in the actual game.
  • Because she's a spider youkai, pairings of her with Wriggle Nightbug are common. Spiders eat bugs, right?
  • Since Kisume has no known relationships, but appears as a mid-boss in Yamame's stage, the two, sometimes along with Parsee and Yuugi are often depicted as knowing one another in fanworks.

Yamame Kurodani

Species: Tsuchigumo
Ability: Power to manipulate illness (especially infectious disease)

A youkai that lives primarily in abandoned cities and deep in caves.
She has no qualms about fighting humans. She has a bright, combative personality.

Her power makes everyone she meets hate her. However, she herself wouldn't inflict disease on someone without reason. She's a bright, fun-loving youkai if you get to know her, so she's popular among the youkai that live underground.
