Description: Daimajin is a guardian idol. He defends the good people of the countryside from evil. At times, it is difficult to convince him to help, but a proper show of fealty never hurts. He has a gigantic sword that he will use when he feels the whim. The Daimajin will collapse into rubble once his vengeance is taken, but will reform another idol somewhere else in Japan, usually on a mountainside.

Description: It is not known how many of these guardian idols exist, or where the animating spirit comes from. However, it is best to play it safe, and don't ever deface a statue on a Japanese mountain, or it may just wake up and crush you into a pulpy mess.
