Revenants in Nioh are AI controlled enemies of particular characteristics. Some are pre-made enemies with special pre-determined gear which can be identified with a red name, whilst others are created where a fellow player has fallen. Game generated Revenants will display a cause of death that will warn you of upcoming traps.
All Revenants have a chance to drop Ochoko cups, which are needed to summon players into your world via Online play. Revenants have a chance to drop any of the gear that they are wearing, and you can see what they have as you near it. The Revenants of friend graves will have a special aura to it. It may be worth fighting a Revenant who has all purple gear if you need better gear.
