The New Guinea Forest Spirits (ニューギニアの森の精 Nyuginia no Mori no Sei) are Yōkai from New Guinea that dwell in the forests.[1]


In the 2007 anime, the forest spirits resemble masses of long black hair, with three varieties of conical straw hats with wide brims. One has a green and yellow mask with several triangular holes, the green part has a pair of pale red circles with smaller blue circles and black centers, representing eyes and wide mouths, and long chin. Another variety has a large single eye like the previous variety with a yellow ring around it, a large pale orange segment extends from above, and a yellow beak just below the hat. The last has no mask, instead, surrounding its hat are four lime green circles, each with a red circle within a yellow ring and a blue feather on top.[1]
