Jokatgulm is a large blue demon, with features reminiscent of jellyfish, snakes, and octopii, and she has four large tentacles that she uses to attack, although they can be destroyed temporarily. She also attacks with poisonous gas, and can generate a magical shield to protect her body if the hunter gets on her belly. Dante and Lucia both defeat Jokatgulm, although it is not clear which of them was first. However, after being defeated twice it dies, and is later revived as a component of Argosax the Chaos.

Background and Etymology[]

Jokatgulm is likely based on Nüwa, mother goddess of Chinese mythology, who is usually depicted having upper body of a woman and lower that of a snake. Her name in Japanese is 女媧 (, Joka?).

Jokatgulm also shares several traits with the Lernaean Hydra of Greek mythology, particularly its poisonous aura and watery residence, and its ability to regrow its tentacles is reminiscent of the hydra's ability to sprout new heads.
