The Five Threats (()(だい)(やく)(さい)()()()()()(), 5 Daiyakusai—lit. "Five Great Calamities") are five different specimens that were obtained from the Dark Continent, during five different voyages in the past.[1]


At the end of each of the five successful voyages, as collateral damage, humanity brought back Five Threats: the weapon Brion, the gas life-form Ai, the two-tailed snake Hellbell, the human feeding beast Pap, and the immortal sickness Zobae Disease.[1]

The Five Threats are first seen when Steiner, the Deputy Secretary of the International Permit Agency (IPA), reads about them in the book detailing the Dark Continent.[1]

Creatures ClassificationEdit

Ranking of Dangerous Creatures
Highest (A) → Lowest (E)
Rating Criteria A B C D E
Agression Towards Human 1) Attacks without provocation.
2) Ecology or behavior endangers many lives.
Species ranks A under certain conditions (climate, food source, exposure to chemicals). 1) Individual differences.
2) Individuals can rank A under certain conditions (smell of blood, under threat, breading season, defending young).
Passive: sudden encounters may provoke a defensive or evasive attack (emission of gas, liquid, needles, body slam). None.
Number One nest, host or herd numbers in 10,000 or more. 100s-1,000s. <100. <10. Individuals.
Fecundity Explosive growth once breeding begins. 1) Breeds several times a year, with >10 young.
2) Conditions can put the species closer to A.
Comparable to that of humans. Long intervals between matings, with few young. Does not reproduce, or at low enough frequency to be negligible.
Threat of Bodily Harm 1) High probability of death.
2) Injuries affect daily life, complete recovery difficult, lifelong aftereffects.
1) How to avoid them is known, but failure leads to serious injuries or death.
2) Complete recovery difficult, lifelong aftereffects.
1) Long-term rest and treatment is necessary. Death is also possible.
2) Indirectly affects many lives (damage to crops, livestock).
1) Does not affect daily life, but mild aftereffects or scars remain.
2) Recovery is possible with a few weeks of treatment.
1) Recovery in days with drugs or treatment.
2) Limited indirect adverse effects (limited contamination, temporary evacuation).
Total Immediate eradication is necessary but method is uncertain; global cooperation is essential. Immediate eradication is necessary at high cost and high risk; international response is necessary. Immediate measures are necessary, but local response suffices. Response to individual cases necessary but not urgent or dangerous. A warning to civilians is necessary, but situation is not serious.
