I present to you the 6 scariest mythological creatures, and once you discover their main features and "powers", you will be glad that they do not exist.

1. SLOVENIAN LEGEND OF IMMORTALITY - KOSCHEI

Koschei is a part of Slavic mythology and represents a typical sadistic villain who kidnaps women by turning into a dizzying tornado and causing them to fall in love with him. He is known for the possibility of turning into a young man who seduces girls, and he is described as a tall and superhuman thin man of excellent health who rides naked in the mountains of Russia on his enchanted horse. However, in books and caricatures, he is presented as an extremely old and ugly man.

Although it is said to be immortal, it is not. It is true that he cannot be killed with a conventional weapon by aiming at his body, but he can certainly die when you kill his soul. It sounds simple, but his soul (or death) is hidden in a needle that is inside the egg that is in the duck, and the duck in the rabbit, the rabbit in the box, and the box buried under the tree. More precisely, the box was buried under an oak tree on the mysterious island of Bryan, in an unknown location. So, practically, if there is immortality, then Koshei is very close to the being that possesses him.

2. THE CURSE OF THE GREEDY - THE SPIRIT OF JIKININKA FROM JAPAN

People outside of Japan have probably not heard of the nightmare known as Jikininki. If you are a little greedy, you should be afraid of perhaps the scariest mythological creature in the world. Jikininki is a spirit that was once cursed precisely because of greed, and now he feeds on human corpses. During the day, Jikininki looks like a completely normal human being, and in the evening he turns into a monster who starts searching for corpses.

3. STRIGOI - ROMANIAN VAMPIRES

In Romanian mythology, Strigoi are problematic spirits of the dead coming out of graves. Some of them can be living people with certain magical properties. In addition to having the ability to transform into any animal on earth or become invisible, they are also given the ability to kill the victim by sucking her blood, which is why they are also called vampires. These monsters usually have red hair, blue eyes and two hearts.

4. BODIES, THE SPIRIT OF SLOVENIAN FORESTS IN EASTERN EUROPE

Have you ever gotten lost in the woods? According to Slavic mythology, the next time this happens to you, you should turn your clothes upside down and replace your left shoe with your right. That will be the only way to escape Lesia, a muscular human-like monster that devours people and scares travelers and hunters. The corpse does not have its own shadow and has the ability to change height or weight. It can be transformed into a creature that is as low as grass or as tall as the tallest tree in the forest. Also, The corpse changes its voice and imitates the voice of people close to those lost in the forest, and in that way he leads them into caves, captures them and ... tickles them to death.

5. CAVE WITCH, BLACK ANISE FROM GREAT BRITAIN

The witch with blue skin and long nails who lives in the cave is related to English mythology and in those areas is the equivalent of Babaroga. A woman with crumpled skin, extremely sharp teeth and long claws hides in the hollows of the oaks and finds special pleasure in catching children whose skin she peels and puts on the walls of the cave as a trophy.

6. HOMES FROM RUSSIA

According to Russian mythology, every house has one Domovoi hidden in a basement, pantry or attic. In his true form, he is a small, bearded man with pronounced hairiness all over his body and disproportionately large feet. Domovoi has the ability to transform into a human being, a cat or a dog. Domovoi wants the home to be clean, and since Russian families consider him a caretaker and someone who is a friend of the home, you can often see bowls full of milk, porridge, tobacco, salt or bread left for Domovia. For the Russians, Domovoi is also a prophecy because his behavior can predict the future. If he laughs, tells jokes or plays, good times can be expected, if he plays with a comb, a wedding is expected at home, but if he howls at night, extinguishes your candles or sees him in the glare of his dishes, he will die which is by no means a good sign for house.
