Hsien-Ko OVA Animation Cel

Hsien-Ko, a jiangshi in the ''Darkstalkers'' series.

A jiang shi, also spelled jiangshi or chiang-shih, and also known as a Chinese "hopping" vampire or zombie, is a type of reanimated corpses in Chinese legends and folklore. "Jiangshi" is read as gangshi in Korean and kyonshī in Japanese. According to legend, in the day, the jiangshi rests in a coffin or hides in dark places such as caves. At night, it moves around by hopping, with its arms outstretched. It kills living creatures to absorb their chi (life essence).
