Pinoy Folklore Creatures Ranked From Mildest to Scariest

We’ve seen them in films, books, and possibly real life(!!!)



Here are your worst nightmares ranked from mildest to scariest.



Kapre

This tree giant isn't even considered evil at all. And we have to admit, a smoking creature atop a Balete tree sounds kinda badass.



Tikbalang

Half man, half horse. Sounds hot? Think again. Tikbalangs are very mischievous, playing tricks on travelers and leading them astray.





Nuno Sa Punso

This dwarf-like spirit harbors grudges and is very easily angered. Warning: steer clear of anthills, and stop peeing everywhere!


Magindara

These beautiful creatures of the sea lure fishermen to their deaths with their enchanting voices. The very definition of a dangerous woman.




White Lady

We partly blame this fear on our moms who scare us with "Sige ka, kakainin ka ng white lady!" every time we refuse to eat our veggies.



Tiyanak

Demon baby: two words that should never be mixed together.




Manananggal

This night-flying, rooftop-hanging, long tongue-wielding, child-eating half woman rightfully takes the top spot. Need we say more?
