Keukegen- Japanese folklore: a creature covered in black fur that lives in peoples houses. Its name means "rarely seen". It was a disease spirit, inflicting sickness into those who lived in its host house.
Mysterious creatures of the night - the stuff of nightmares! This list takes a look at ten monsters from history, myth, and folklore that ought to scare the pants off us. I have tried to restrict the list to creatures that have not been presented on Listverse before to keep things interesting. Be sure to tell us your own favorite (or rather despised) monsters in the comments.
Hone-onna- Japanese folklore: a living, moving, female skeleton. She lures men to her cavern or to their bed to sleep with them. They either find out later or before that she is a skeleton when a light shines on her. She usually holds them and sucks their life-force until they become a skeleton them selves
Mujina- Japanese folklore: magical badgers that live in the mountains. They can shapeshift into human form, but can also take the appearance of a noppera-bo; a faceless human. They are very shy and tend to avoid humans as much as possible.
