One of the spirits or Genii of Tupinamba belief. Tupan was a Demon of thunder who received no prayers and no worship. He is described as being short and stout with dark wavy hair. He is the youngest son of the hero Nanderevusu and his wife Nandecy. Tupan had great affection for Nandecy whom he like to be close to. Nandecy lived in the east whilst Tupan lived in the west. Every so often, Tupan would set across the sea in his canoe to meet his mother. He was accompanied by two birds who take place in his canoe. Every time Tupan would ride his canoe, he would cause a terrible storm. This storm would last until Tupan boarded on shore in the east to meet his mother.
