Mapuche Demon

Also known as Guecufü

King of the Demons and arch-enemy of Guinechen

He’s in constant conflict with Guinechen to prevent anything good happening. He aims to devastate the entire planet and wipe out mankind.

His arsenal includes plague, famine, fire and flood — in fact he’s an insurance company’s nightmare.

Some accounts of Mapuche mythology consider GUECUBU to be a race of evil spirits rather a single demon. No doubt he is in charge of them all. We have listed them separately under Huecuvus to avoid confusion. It wouldn’t do to irritate a Demon King.
