|“||Now my dear babies, consume that human over there at once!||„|
|~ Hecuba to her demon children|
Hecuba is a major villain and boss in the video game Onimusha: Warlords. She is a Genma demon who disguises herself as a human in order to gain Samanosuke and Kaede's trust. When Kaede is alone and off guard, she kidnaps a young boy named, Yumemaru. She later reveals her true form, a giant wasp-like creature that flies.
After Hecuba kidnaps Yumemaru, she confronts Samanosuke. She tells him that Yumemaru will be murdered in front of his older sister, Princess Yuki, in order to make her fall into deep sorrow. The demons will then have their ally warlord Nobunaga Oda drink Yuki's blood, granting him tremendous power.
Samanosuke promises to make Hecuba suffer for this. Hecuba then orders her children, a group of ant-like demons, to eat Samonosuke. A fight ensues, and Samanosuke defeats Hecuba and her children. Hecuba is then killed by falling debris.
