Yo-kai Medallium Bio: A Yo-kai that eats only human dreams. It puts people to sleep before digging in. Beaux rêves!
Baku has the appearance of a purple and pink tapir. She has yellow eyes with red irises and black pupils. She has small, pointy, ears that are a different color purple than her body (but the same color purple as the tuff of fur on her tail). She has an orange flower-like design next to her eyes. She also has sharp teeth on both her upper and lower jaws.
Baku is based on the dream eating youkai of the same name. Originally from China, this beast is described as having "a bear's body, small eyes like a rhino, a long snout, strong legs like a tiger's and a spotted pelt": overall it resembles a tapir, and in fact the word "baku" is also used to refer to the animal.
This creature will feed on good and bad dreams alike while people are asleep. Those who are waken up by nightmares will invoke its name to let it devour them so they can peacefully go back to sleep, and it's said that even the general Hideyoshi Toyotomi kept a picture of a baku by his bedside to keep nightmares away. It is also said that anyone who sleeps on a baku's pelt will never get sick.
