|“||“Hi there. I’m the Aoandon. It might surprise you, but I’m the final boss. Nice to meet you☆.||„|
|~ Aoandon's usual greeting|
|“||I am a special deadly Youkai that rules over the Hyakumonogatari. I exist in the leftover space beyond the one hundred bloody ghost stories. You are no more than a single fear, so did you really think you could harm me?||„|
|~ Aoandon to Aburatori|
The Aoandon is a special Youkai said to take the form of a female oni that is the generalized form of the supernatural phenomena that appear at the end of the Hyakumonogatari, an event where people gather to tell one hundred ghost stories. This particular Aoandon is different from a normal Aoandon. She's an artificial Youkai that was created at the end of the incident in Zenmetsu Village. The horrible events surrounding her birth left her with a twisted morality, desiring to destroy the Japanese to erase all their dissatisfaction and boredom, but also proclaiming herself the ally of anyone who desires change. She recruited several people to create a group in order to face Hyakki Yakou.

- Immortality: All Youkai have an immortal body, since they don't have a concept of lifespan. Once they reach adulthood they stop aging completely, which makes it basically impossible to determine an adult Youkai's age from their physical appearance, as they could be several centuries old but still look young.
- Invulnerability: Youkai are immune to conventional weapons and physical damage that follows the laws of physics. They are also immune to natural poisons and to things like radiation. Even weak harmless Youkai won't die if nuclear missiles were to pour down like rain. Additionally, Youkai have some resistance to interference from history and destiny.
- Aoandon: An Aoandon, being the gathering of one hundred ghost stories, has countless supernatural powers. She claims to have almost any supernatural phenomena that is harmful to humans, from mysterious fevers, blindness and food poisoning to suspicious fires at the participants’ houses and even natural disasters that cover entire regions. She has reached the same level as Hyakki Yakkou, a strange phenomenon in which one hundred different species of Youkai band together to march through the night, on her own. She's also powerful enough to be able to easily find and contact the Aburatori, something supposedly impossible without an ability like Yukari's destiny manipulation.
- Regeneration: The Aoandon recovers from injuries in seconds and she won't be killed even if her head is chopped off or if her heart is torn out. She is at risk if she's cut into tiny little pieces, but only because this would separate and weaken the stories forming her and might turn her into a completely different type of Youkai.
- Fire Breath: The Aoandon can blow flames from her lips like a bluish-white flamethrower.
- Hypnotic Candle: By lighting the tip of her horn in her forehead with a bluish-white phosphorescent light, the Aoandon creates an hypnotic effect that allows her to "open the heart" of humans and subdue their wills to make them follow her orders and suggestions. This ability is only effective on humans, and its effects disappear if the person loses consciousness.
- Biological Manipulation: The Aoandon has some sort of ability to manipulate human bodies, as she removed all the Oomukade's neurotoxin from Ranzono Sachi's body and instantly woke her up by casually snapping her fingers. She also claims to be able to cause strange fevers, blindness and other diseases.
- Barrier: The Aoandon can create an invisible barrier, which she used to block the Oomukade's attack.
- Information Absorption: A common ability of Youkai is the capacity of devouring humans. As such, Aoandon can eat a human and absorb all the data they hold, including their memories and experiences.
- Matsukai Hiroshi's Package: A special Package built for the Aoandon by some of the members of her group. The Aoandon brings together and exists beyond one hundred fears. By gathering all of those scary stories, she can combine different parts to reproduce paranormal powers that she didn’t originally have. Through the combination of these limited materials she can achieve unlimited possibilities, allowing her to mimic the powers of other Youkai species such as the Aburatori.
