Kappa

The kappa is a type of mischievous legendary creature found in Japanese folklore, also a youkai and a type of sprite. The plural for kappa can either be "kappas" or just simply "kappa". According to medieval Japan, the myth tells that kappas can be found dwelling in lakes, rivers, and swamps. These creatures take the form of a turtle and a monkey. However, these creatures resemble frogs.

Mythology

The kappa acts by either stealing crops or eating children. These creatures are fond of cucumber and love to enjoy sumo wrestling. People bribed them with cucumbers and they promised almost everything. Once a promised was made, the kappas were honor-bounding to keep the promise. Kappas are also known for raping, insulting, and also threatening women. This evil event caused women to have a lack of pregnancy and could mistreat women. It said kappas are also intelligent, being knowledgeable, able to speak Japanese. If they are befriended, they are very loyal and will never go against a person's word.

Appearance

Kappas usually take the form between a turtle and a monkey. They are usually green in color, but there were also different color types said to exist. The kappa's eyes are triangular and elongated. The kappa is depicted with an apelike face or with a tortoise beak, also having sport shells on their scaly skin. It is also given a bowl-like depression on their head filled with water, which is its power source.
