Appearance Humanoid


The Kuchisake-Onna is a creature with origins in Japanese mythology, legend and folklore. In particular, accounts of this creature exist in Japanese urban legends.


Appears just like a normal woman, but her mouth is slit at the sides in a Chelsey grin from ear to ear. Usually seen carrying a pair of scissors.


Sometimes the kuchisake-onna may be encountered alone at night wearing a surgical mask, asking strangers "Am I pretty?" If answered with no, she will stab them with her scissors. If answered with yes, she will remove the mask and say "Am I now?" If answered with no, they will be cut in half. If answered with yes, she will slit their mouth just like hers.

To escape her, one must answer with "You are average", saying that you are late for an appointment, or throwing candy or some other objects at her and running while she is distracted. You may also ask her "Am I pretty?" in return, confusing her.


Super speed, possibly, as if you try to run from her she will simply appear in front of you. Also quite the skilled butcher.


"Tell I beautiful?"
