The Kappa In Japanese Folklore

  • Kappas are legendary creatures that inhabit the rivers and waterways of Japan. They have beaked noses, shells on their back and a depression on their heads that holds water. Kappa are mischievous troublemakers. Their pranks range from the relatively innocent, such as loudly passing gas or looking up women's kimonos, to the more troublesome such as drowning swimmers and eating children. They feed on their victims by sucking their liver though their anus. They love cucumbers and if you write your name on a cucumber and throw it in the river, the kappa may be appeased by your gift and allow you to swim in peace.

Hello =)
About 2 weeks ago I found your post at It was about a little murloc and a night elf. And I really appreciated your work, so did my boyfriend. :)) His birthday is on the 24th of February and I'm not very good at making patterns. :( That would be so great if you still have a pattern of this murloc. Can you please answer at
Waiting for your reply. :)


Hey, pretty cute! I still haven't seen OR read Coraline yet, but I really want to. Looks so very skin crawly and cool! :p
