Ghouls (グール) are a class of lesser undead.


Ghouls are considered to be scrawny undead that are little more than skin and bones, but they are still a fearsome sight. Ghouls possess yellowed claws, which they use in attacks.


Like zombies, Ghouls tend to use numbers to overwhelm an opponent. However, they utilize their claws to attack their prey.[1] In the Web Novel, Ghouls are able to use paralysis poison.[2]


  • When injured, instead of bleeding out blood, Ghouls bleed out a dirty fluid similar to bile.  
  • In the Web Novel, Ghouls were estimated to be level 1.[3]
