Leshy: The Leshy is a interesting creature from Slavic folklore. It is considered to be the spirit of the forest and loves to play pranks on people. It resembles a human-like figure with a pointed head and missing facial features. It can also shapeshift and alter its size at will. Although this creature is usually calm, it can become quite dangerous if provoked. People who are captured by the Leshy are said to be taken to its cave and tickled to death.

Asshole? The Shiri-me is a pretty grotesque-looking spirit of Japanese mythology. The name of the spirit literally translates to “butt eye.” It looks like a human from a distance, but, if approached by humans at night, it does something quite um…. risque. It drops to the ground and “moons” the unlucky bystander, exposing its eye located in its anus. Other than that, it’s completely harmless. There have only been a couple documented appearences of this creature and it is said that they only exisit to live on the fear and shock of its visage. (yokai.com)

This next creature is one that I’ve been dying to know the name of! The Gasha-dokuro is one awesome looking beast of Japanese folklore. It resembles a huge skeleton whose teeth chatter and bones rattle. They originally came from the corpses of dead soliders who didn’t receive a proper burial. This caused the bodies to reanimate as an angry and hungry spirit. They have a nasty habit of crushing or decapitating people warndering the streets late at night. It is impossible to kill a Gasha-dokuro and they will keep on living until their hatred stored up within their bodies has burned up.
