|Manga Debut||Chapter 54|
The Kuchisake-onna (口裂け女 Kuchisakeonna) is an entity born from the myths and the fear and curiosity of people.
The kuchisake-onna looks like a regular woman with long straight black hair that generally covers her face, wearing a plain gown-like garment. The kuchisake-onna's most striking feature is her gaping maw, slit from ear to ear, filled with a mangled mess of sharp teeth. She always has a deranged facial expression and wields a pair of scissors in her hand.
Like the urban myth, the kuchisake-onna asks if she is pretty. Upon answering that she is, she removes her mask to reveal her fanged, slit open maw. She then proceeds to slaughter everyone in the vicinity.
Powers & Abilities
The kuchisake-onna is a powerful and dangerous entity that possesses enhanced speed and superhuman strength. She was able to easily cut through a tree with her scissors. She is capable of transmuting her hands into giant scissor-like pincers. Because the kuchisake-onna is a symbol of fear, any fear she breeds only serves to empower her. As such, unless a person does not know who the kuchisake-onna is or understand why she is scary, she cannot be exorcised by normal means.
Notes & Trivia
- She is based off of the Japanese urban myth of the kuchisake-onna.
- The manifestation of the kuchisake-onna is most likely based on tulpa.
