[[caption-width-right:250:Four girls. Countless bodies.]]

A one-panel webcomic created by Vincent Grisanti. Reiko Mouryou is a typical 6-year-old girl. Except she's a demon. A very violent, darkly sarcastic little demon girl. She lives with her three sisters: Shihoka, whose eyes are always hidden behind a pair of sunglasses; Shirabe, a serial dater (and date killer), and Shinobu, a tomboy ninja. Along with her pet crocodile, Lucy (short for Lucifer), and imposing {{yakuza}} father, Mitsugu, they live a typical family life. By that, we mean that people frequently meet a violent end.

Featured on Grisanti's Web site [[http://www.taintedink.com/ Tainted Ink.com]].

!This webcomic provides examples of:
* ALoveToDismember: Provides the page photo.
* ArtEvolution: Reiko has evolved slightly since the comic began. Noticeably, her face became rounder, and she lost a pair of worn looking lines under her eyes.
* BadassInANiceSuit: Mitsugu.
* [[BigBrotherInstinct Big Sister Instinct]] : When she sees Reiko getting repeatedly pelted by snowballs, Shinobu deals with it like you'd expect. As in, she stabs the girl throwing them through the back with her sword.
* BlackComedy: Oh boy, is it ever!
* BlackWidow : Shirabe. Men who go on a date with her rarely survive the experience.
** "The best way to a man's heart is through his stomach!" Literally.
* BlatantLies: [[http://taintedink.com/comics/2004-01-08-008-i-didnt-do-it.jpg I didn't do it]].
* BlindingBangs: Reiko has these, though they don't hide her eyes. They hide the budding pair of horns growing out of her forehead.
* BlingBlingBang: As demonstrated [[http://taintedink.com/comics/2009-10-24-229-desert-eagle.jpg here]].
* BloodyHilarious
* BreadEggsMilkSquick "[[http://taintedink.com/?comic=101-tattletales Reiko broke my dolly/dinosaur/arms and legs]]".
* ChessWithDeath: He apparently [[http://taintedink.com/?comic=307-checkmate always wins]] too.
* ContinuityNod: [[http://taintedink.com/comics/2011-06-17-274-skateboard.jpg This panel]], featuring Shinobu skateboarding in the house, is followed up by [[http://taintedink.com/comics/2011-07-21-276-iron-maiden.jpg her punishment]] for it two strips later.
** [[http://taintedink.com/comics/2009-11-05-230-cute-guinea-pig.jpg Remember]] Shinobu saying she wanted to wean her Guinea Pig off of vegetables, and onto human flesh? [[http://taintedink.com/comics/2011-09-19-280-fetch.jpg It worked]].
** After receiving the gold Desert Eagle, Fumiko uses it whenever the comic calls for her to be using a gun.
* DaddysGirl: Reiko is on very good terms with her father.
* DeadpanSnarker: Reiko mostly, but others have their moments too.
** LittleMissSnarker
* DeliberatelyMonochrome : The comic is done mostly in black and white, with red being the only color used. Certain strips are done in full-color, though.
* DemBones: Shirabe's friend, Bonny.
* EatsBabies: Pretty self explanatory.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Reiko's mom Fumiko.
* EyeScream: [[http://taintedink.com/comics/2011-06-08-273-eyes.jpg "Eyes on your own paper, Petey"]].
* FireBreathingDiner: The end result of [[http://taintedink.com/?comic=chilli-dogs chili dogs and onions day]].
* ForgottenAnniversary: Averted. The gun mentioned under BlingBlingBang is an anniversary gift. Fumiko is appropriately pleased.
* FourIsDeath: A recurring motif in the series. There are four sisters, all four years apart, a blushing Reiko is seen offering four roses to TheGrimReaper, and so on.
* FriendlySniper: Fumiko. A rather polite YamatoNadeshiko, who can apparently shoot the wings off a butterfly from 1000 yards.
* HappilyMarried: Mitsugu and Fumiko. Assuming all four of their children were born in wedlock, they were married ''at least'' nineteen years ago, and they're still openly affectionate.
* HeadlessHorseman: Irving. Though he's too much of a ButtMonkey to be a threat.
** Also his father, who at one point chews his son out for using an eggplant for a head.
* HiddenEyes: Shihoka, whose eyes are concealed behind a pair of sunglasses.
* HornedHumanoid: All the Mouryou's have horns. Reiko's are hidden under her bangs.
* InfantImmortality : Averted. Reiko treats maternity wards like candy shops, for God's sake.
* KissOfDeath: Parodied [[http://taintedink.com/?comic=242-the-kiss-of-death here]].
* LimitedAnimation: Grisanti produced a few small animations of the comic. The animation was...thrifty, to put it nicely.
* MamaBear: [[http://taintedink.com/?comic=306-principal Fumiko]].
* MeaningfulName: Reiko is a common Japanese name, but the kanji of her name is spelled atypically, reading as "Ghost Child."
** And her sisters all have names beginning with "shi"--which is a homophone for "death".
*** Shinobu takes it one step further, as her name is very similar to shinobi(ninja).
** The two-headed girl's heads are Zenith and Nadir, which means "the highest point" and "the lowest point" respectively.
* MissingMom: The comic went on for five years without even a mention of Reiko's mom, her whereabouts, or even whether she was alive. She finally appeared in 2010. Her excuse for the long absence? A fishing trip. With a [[http://taintedink.com/?comic=225-mama dead whale]] to prove it.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: As demonstrated [[http://taintedink.com/?comic=armed here]].
* MultipleHeadCase: Zenith (Zeni) and Nadir (Nadi) Tweeling.
* NoodlePeople: Pretty much everyone in the Mouryou family aside from Mitsugu. Justified with Shihoka, who seems to be at least partially based on a rokurokubi.
* ObliviouslyEvil: It's often hinted that the Mouryou family isn't so much intentionally malevolent as they just consider random murder, mutilation, and torture a completely normal and reasonable way to deal with others. It's not completely consistent on this matter, though.
* OddNameOut: Reiko is the only one of the Mouryou siblings, whose name doesn't begin with "Shi-".
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Every member of the Mouryou family except for Shirabe and Mitsugu.
* PointyEars: All the Mouryous.
* PoliceAreUseless: [[http://taintedink.com/comics/2008-05-23-189-no-smoking.jpg No smoking]]
* PrecociousCrush: Reiko appears to [[http://images2.fanpop.com/images/photos/2900000/reiko-death-contemplating-reiko-2906700-462-423.jpg have]] [[http://images2.fanpop.com/images/photos/2900000/reiko-death-contemplating-reiko-2913327-450-450.jpg one]]...on TheGrimReaper of all people.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Reiko and Mitsugu.
* ReverseCerebusSyndrome: A very borderline case. The comic started out as an extremely bleak SadistShow with death and murder. Newer strips are still dark, but they revolve more around monster-related jokes with the family than Reiko's gruesome exploits.
* [[SadistShow Sadist Comic]]
* ScaryTeeth: Whenever her mouth is open wide enough, Reiko's [[http://taintedink.com/comics/2005-06-05-054-tongue.jpg wicked]] [[http://taintedink.com/comics/2005-10-21-079-mousetrap.jpg chompers]] are visible.
* ScheduleSlip: The comic has experienced two notable ones, the most recent being the drought of new pages starting after the New years 2012 comic.
* ShoutOut: Shirabe apparently attends [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Gein Gein]] High School.
* SlasherSmile: Shinobu's default expression.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch : "Don't fuck with my sister, bitch".
** See the above "Big Sister Instinct".
* TooDumbToLive: A large majority of Reiko's classmates.
** For two examples, they talk about how awesome and adorable Reiko's [[http://taintedink.com/comics/2010-05-24-250-boa-constrictor.jpg boa constrictor]] is ''after'' it's eaten them alive, and eagerly pay to get their picture taken with a [[http://taintedink.com/comics/2009-12-25-238-picture-with-santa.jpg "Santa"]] who's very obviously a vicious child-eating ogre of Japanese mythology, and actually has the lower body of a half-eaten child still dangling out of his mouth.
* TranslationConvention: Fumiko is shown learning English in an ESL course in one strip, so the characters are likely supposed to be speaking Japanese, but the entire run of the comic is in English.
* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: Par for the course, actually. At least, for demons.
* TongueOnTheFlagpole: [[http://taintedink.com/comics/2006-12-15-143-triple-dog-dare.jpg Demonstrated here]], by Shinobu.
** Reiko pulls this on one of her classmates... during the summer. Amazing what Super Glue can do.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Fumiko is the demon world version: a doting mother and HouseWife whose hobbies include flower arranging, calligraphy, tea ceremony, katana wielding, drinking booze, and bounty hunting.
* {{Youkai}}: [[http://taintedink.com/comics/2006-09-15-133-uncle-ken.jpg Uncle Kenzo]] is an oni.
* {{Yubitsume}}: Mitsugu appears to have undergone this. It's hinted elsewhere that it's just his wife's response to touching her cooking before it's ready to serve, though.
