Yayu (窫窳) is a man-eating creature that appears in the classic Chinese pandemonium Shanhaijing. It is described as having the body of panther and the head of a dragon . It was slain by the fierce beast god Erfu (貳負). In another later literature Huainanzi, Yayu was slain by Yi (羿) after the latter had shot down 9 of the 10 suns from the heaven during his heroic quest.
