And now let’s go back to the most terrifying urban legend in the game: Kuchisake Onna. She is one of the toughest enemies that we meet in the Bethesda game, and she has the appearance of a woman with her face cut off, at the height of her mouth. In the game she is armed with large scissors.
In fact Kuchisake means “slit-mouthed woman”. According to legend, it is about a woman whom she tortured and killed her jealous husband, who became a ghost. When she comes across a living person, she asks if she is beautiful, before murdering him.
During 1979 and 1980 in Japan a series of crimes took place, which were attributed to Kuchisake Onna. It was about a woman who chased children at nightfall. and that she was killed by a car. And according to a coroner’s report, the woman had her face cut from side to side, like Kuchisake herself.
However, although we have looked for official reports, the different sources do not cite the coroner, nor the crimes. These may be elements to expand on this terrifying urban legend that appears in Ghostwire Tokyo.
