Kuchisake Onna, aka The Slit Mouthed Woman -


According to Japanese legend the Slit Mouthed Woman was once a beautiful woman who was mutilated by a jealous husband who cut her mouth from ear to ear.
To hide her mutilation during her wanderings she wears a surgical mask, which Japanese people wear to prevent the spread of colds and sickness. When she meets a person on the street she asks them “Am I beautiful?” if the person answers no, they are killed with the pair of scissors she carries with her. If they answer yes she removes her mask and asks them the question again. If the person says no after that, they will be ripped in half. If they answer yes, then she will slit their mouth to look like hers.
There are a few different ways to save yourself from the slit mouthed woman. The first is to say that she is average. In other stories she has a weakness for sweets, which will distract her if you drop them to the ground, giving you a chance to run away, or for you could ask her if she finds you beautiful.
