Venoct is a character from the Yo-Kai Watch franchise.
A ninja-like Yo-kai of the Slippery Tribe who came to be when a monster named Rubeus J's reign of terror took away everything a young man held dear. Now he roams Springdale searching for Rubeus J to get his revenge. He usually visits Jibanyan, who unknowingly fits Rubeus J's exaggerated description. His scarf has two serpent heads on it, and is used as his powerful attack called "Octo-Snake."
In the XP4 fics, Venoct debuted in the XP4 Heroes Coalition - Neo-City Diaries.
Venoct has snow white skin and golden eyes, with long and dark teal hair that covers most of his face, tied into a ponytail with a sky blue band. He wears a dark purple kimono with a black overcoat hanging off his waist, tied with a white belt. He wears black shin covers and finger-less gloves, as well as straw sandals. Around his neck is an azure, wisp-like scarf with tails resembling dragon heads. He is 140 cm tall (About 55 Inches).
Extremely serious, stern and stoic, Venoct is a fighter through and through, and doesn't make friends easily. However he is also extremely honorable and would never break the few bonds he's forged. Even his initial interaction with Nate/Katie is cold and stand-offish, with him rebuffing any ideas that he might be their ally. By the time of the showdown with McKraken, however, he has warmed to the player enough to give them his Yo-kai Medal.
While he shares some traits with his counterpart Kyubi, he lacks that Yo-kai's arrogance and manipulative nature.
Venoct has a deep hatred towards Rubeus J due to him destroying his village, family and friends when he was alive. His hatred was what transformed him into the being known as Venoct, the undefeatable Yo-kai.
Venoct's personality was tone down a little as he gets along well with a few members such as Nyaruto Nyazumaki and SpongeBob Squarepants, though the latter annoys him at times.
Venoct is a member of the Heroes Coalitions as a Solo Hero. He also attends at Vanguard Academy as a student.

- Venoct is based on Yamata-no-Orochi (from which comes his Japanese name), the eight-headed serpent that terrorized Japan during the age of mythology, and demanded young maidens in sacrifice.
- In Yo-kai Watch, Venoct uses the assertive, masculine 'ore' first pronoun but, in the second game he instead uses the more polite/neutral 'watashi'. The reason why this happens is because of the events of Yo-kai Watch 2 which made him change along with some other Yo-kai.
- In Yo-kai Watch the Movie: The Great Adventure of the Flying Whale & the Double World, Nyan! Venoct is shown to be able to evolve into Illuminoct despite this not being possible in the games.
