"A creature with giant eyes and a mouth on top of it. It lurks around town with its spider-like legs."Road Blockers are huge spider like Spirits in Yomawari: Night Alone and Yomawari: Midnight Shadows.
These spirits have 8 red legs that resemble crab legs and they are covered in white hair. They have a deformed face on top of their body.
Road Blockers move along a predefined path occupying the entire width of the road making it impossible to get past them directly. Some Road Blockers are stationary simply blocking the path to prevent the player from getting through.
It's not hard to escape from a Road Blocker as they move very slowly and they can easily be outrun. Another way, and sometimes the only way, to escape is to hide in a bush or sign and wait for them to pass.
