|This article is about a/an group of villains in Tensou Sentai Goseiger.|
The Earth Condemnation Group Yuumajuu (地球犠獄集団 幽魔獣, Chikyū Gigoku Shūdan Yūmajū, Spectral Demon Beasts) are the second set of antagonists in Tensou Sentai Goseiger, that are the second group to battle the Goseigers with the intent of destroying Earth through pollution. Like their predecessors the Universal Annihilation Army Warstar, each one is named after a film-in their case monster movies-and their designs incorporate aspects of both invertebrate animals and various cryptids while the kanji in their name is indicative of a Yuumajuu's specific abilities. The name Yūmajū comes from the Japanese title for the film Rise of the Gargoyles (U.M.A（ユーマ） 2010, Yūma Nisenjū), which in turn uses a Japanese term for cryptids akin to "UFO": UMA (ユーマ, Yūma, Unidentified Mysterious Animal).
Ten-thousand years ago, the two leading Yuumajuu were sealed into the Erurei Box (エルレイの匣, Erurei no Hako), the source of the Yuumajuu's power. In 2010, Dereputa's meteor shower inadvertently exposed the Erurei Box as Buredoran secretly breaks the seal on it, freeing the Yuumajuu once more as they intend to pollute the Earth and make it into an ideal paradise for themselves. At the same time, Gosei Knight is reawakened in response to stop them. The Erurei Box is named after the film Hellraiser (ヘル・レイザー, Heru Reizā).
- The Yuumajuu correspond to earth, originating from underground and being based on terrestrial invertebrates, with their members being named after monster, horror, fantasy, and slasher films.
- The group is named after the 2009 film Rise of the Gargoyle (known in Japan as "U.M.A. 2010").
- Chronologically, this is the first organization faced by Gosei Angels.
