Hand Spirits appear as dark shadow-like hands with a white dot as its eye. It has dark mist or flames escaping from where the wrist is. Its size is that of a small child.
The Hand Spirits follow the orders of the Mountain Spirit. They followed his orders in causing havoc in the Downtown area by destroying the Salt that was protecting the area.
They attack the Protagonist when she trespasses in their master's domain. Once she enters their range, they attack her by acting like hands stretching out to grab her. When they do grab her, the smaller ones probably strangle her to death.
If the girl lights the small shrine in their area, the small Hand Spirits will disappear.
- A Hand Spirit is the first Spirit encountered in the series, appearing briefly in the Prologue of Yomawari: Night Alone.
