The Five Venoms also known as the Five Poisons. A group of venomous/poisonous creatures which are occasionally mentioned in Traditional Chinese medicine, in martial arts techniques, or as a component of charms and amulets. The group consists of the Centipede, Snake, Scorpion, Toad, and Spider.
The Five Venoms are used in Chinese charms and amulets based on the concept of “fighting poison with poison” (以毒攻毒). The idea is that a charm bearing the image of the Five Venoms should be effective in warding off pests, evil spirits, black magic and other sources of poison.
