Gashadokuro

In Japanese folklore, Gashadokuro, (がしゃどくろ) literally “starving skeleton” (also known as Odokuro), are giant skeletons that are fifteen times taller than an average person. If a Gashadokuro sees a human, it will grab them and attempt to bite its head off with its giant teeth to drink the spray of blood. Gashadokuro are created from gathering bones from people who have died of starvation. The only way a Gashadokuro can be detected before it appears is by hearing a ringing in one’s ears. They are said to possess the powers of invisibility and indestructibility; though Shinto charms are said to ward them off.

People who are being targeted by this mammoth- sized skeleton hear extremely loud bells ringing throughout their ears. Gashadokuro targets people when they are alone. It roams about after midnight.
