Sometimes even described as having wings (as if the other terrifying features weren’t enough) images of gorgons were often placed on temples and graves to ward away the dark forces of evil. 76. Hydra: specifically the Lernaean Hydra referred to in the labours of Heracles, this monster had multiple heads, of which should one be cut off, two would grow in its place. With such poisonous breath and blood that even its tracks could kill, the serpent-like creature guarded an entrance to the underworld.

66. Yacuruna: if you ever take a trip along the Amazon river, make sure you look out for the Yacuruna. According to the indigenous people of the region, these mythical water people are described as being similar to humans in their form, although their heads are backwards, they are hairier than normal and they have deformed feet. Often accompanied by a river serpent or riding on a crocodile, it is said they roam the rainforest at night, using their ability to turn into an attractive man to entice and capture their victims.

However, legends of a tall, thin skeletal figure have persisted for years across many cultures, even if they don’t have the abilities that current Slenderman mythos attributes - being able to cause Slender Sickness for instance.
