In Japanese folklore, Gashadokuro or Odokuro, are giant skeletons constructed from the bones of people who have died from starvation. Filled with intense anger and a thirst for human blood, they wander at night, grinding their teeth and making a gachi gachi sound. They tower so high above the ground and walk so quietly that they can be almost invisible. The only warning you get when the giant skeleton is near is a strange and inexplicable ringing in your ears.
