In Japanese Folklore, Gashadokuro is a giant skeleton made up of the bones of people who have died from starvation. If Gashadokuro sees you, it will bite your head off and drink the blood that drains out of your decapitated body 馃巸

Where does the blood go? I mean he's a skeleton surely it just falls out again

Random Yokai: So, Gash, did you drink that guy's blood last night? Gash: Yep Random Yokai: How was it? Gash: Eh, it went right through me.

Ang sakin lang naman ayoko nang makakita ng skeleton
Great to see you Big G! Pop in for your favourite bone chunks next time you're in town.
If you asked me what my favorite Yokai was, I will always point to this boney bastard.
Japan invented Evengellions to take these bad bois down
Impressed Gashadokuro figure I've never seen before. IT is not leaning forward, but stands straight up!

Japanese mythological figures are either zany and wacky or terrifying as fuck.

No in-between.
One of my favorite thing ever

I鈥檝e seen one of these. A giant 9ft tall black skeleton crossing the road traveling back from Chicago... almost drove off the road, very scrred. True story.

I think I have an idea on the last thing rich people should see...
How can we get it to haunt members of governments ?
My Devil Monkey will want one of these for his hellish crusade.

My favourite iteration of Gashadokuro is from Yokai Watch, where he operates a gashapon machine and is a pun pic.twitter.com/xaZ9YlZlPi
Man, we need something like that in Washington, DC.
But can we talk about that supermodel-on-the-street strut doe.
In reply to @41Strange
No wonder they starved. Even dead they restrict themselves to a purely liquid diet.

Hmmm. If it is made of the bones of other people why are they the right shape and not a collection of bones in bone shape...
