*** Similar to the Manananggal, Penanggalen from Malaysia. It's an undead monster who separates her head from her body an flies around with her entrails glowing like fireflies. As slight-NightmareRetardant, GaiaOnline has her as a very {{Moe}} item...as {{Moe}} as a flying severed head can be...

* The monsters of [[UsefulNotes/JapaneseMythology Japanese Myth]] are pretty damn horrifying, too. Like the Gashadokuro, a skeleton created from the corpses of dozens of victims of famine, standing fifteen times the height of a normal man and eternally hungry. As if that is not enough, not only are they silent, but they can turn ''invisible''. The only thing you hear before a Gashadokuro strikes is a ringing in your ears, before it grabs you and tears your head off with its teeth.

** And last but not least, there are the Tamawo/Engkanto, the Philippines' own version of TheFairFolk. Common English translations range from 'faerie," to "elf," to "nymph." They live in trees and caves, and take offense to their homes being desecrated my humans. They'll take people away and replace them with banana leaves enchanted to look like the person's deceased corpse. If they fancy a human, they'll try to lure them into their homes and [[FoodChains trick them into eating their food]], thus condemning the person to live with them ''forever''. The one place they cannot stand, however, are church grounds. The reason? They are actually ''fallen angels'' who were cast out when Lucifer lost against God. This aren't your typical, Tinkerbell-esque fairies, people. Not ''at all''.

** Just as scary is the idea of "Wendigo Syndrome" or "Wendigo Psychosis". It is almost surely a myth, the idea that the fear of becoming a Wendigo is so strong that it is in and of itself enough to drive otherwise normal people to commit acts of cannibalism (and in turn, questioning if they are becoming cannibals in the first place) is horrible ParanoiaFuel.

** Of course, depending on certain interpretations of the myth, this just [[FromBadToWorse gets worse]]. Jiang Shi's bouncing sounds silly, unless it becomes jumping. Jumping high enough to leap over fortress walls and land silently behind any traditional defenses. They are also said to be covered in what looks like white fur. This "fur" turns out to be [[{{Squick}} white, stringy mold]]. Finally, one of the few ways to actually stop a Jiang Shi? Take a sacred piece of paper and nail it to its forehead. Meaning you would have to get ''really'' close to one of these monsters to even pull it off.
