Aswangs are ghoulish creatures in Philippines, and, in fact, are the most feared supernatural creatures in a nation already rich in colorful folklore. They find their way into a wide variety of myths and stories. Aswangs feed on people and stolen cadavers, leaving behind facsimiles that they create out of tree trunks and other plant materials. It is their appetite for children, however, that really gets the attention of believing locals.
A crowded, dark forest bordering Mt. Fuji, Aokigahara is infamous throughout Japan as a popular spot for those taking their final journey. In 2002, 78 bodies were found within it. By May 2006, at least 16 new suicides had been found. No one knows how many bodies go undiscovered. Signs emblazoned with messages are nailed to trees throughout the forest.
Said to inhabit the depths of Lake Ikeda, Issie is Japan's answer to Nessie. Legends of a mythical creature in the lake have been swirling for centuries.

One of the photos seems to show two humps with spinal ridges.
Icelandic elves may be petite; they may be mild; and they may be myths, but they are a valued constituency.

Ninki Nanka is a legendary creature based in West African folklore. Descriptions of the creature vary, but the consensus is that the animal is reptilian and possibly dragon-like. According to tradition, the Ninki Nanka lives in the swamps of West Africa. The animal is said to be extremely large and dangerous. It is believed that when children disobey their parents and go into the swamp, the Ninki Nanka will take them away. This creature's tales were never recorded but the story of it has spread from tribe to tribe all over Africa.
Then, meet one of the most terrifying and least-seen forest creatures: the Kikiyaon. Its very name can conjure a look of terror. It is described as resembling a large owl of human proportions. It has a large beak and raking talons on its arms and feet. In many respects it is a mixture of bird and human. The Bambara people say it has a huge pair of feathered wings that grow from its back. Sharp shoulder spurs serve as weapons if its razor-sharp claws fail. The Kikiyaon is said to be covered in short greenish-gray hair, and some reports speak of a short tufted tail.
