Some people say that they have seen her chase cars on the highways, and her speed may reach 100 km per hour. Most of the places she hides are garbage bins.

Some believe that these creatures are nothing but the spirits of dogs that died due to being run over by cars, and some interpretations of the same myth say that they are just evil spirits incarnated in the form of dogs, and others say that these creatures may be the product of some forbidden scientific experiments in secret laboratories whose whereabouts no one knows.

A railway worker spotted her. Instead of trying to help her, a station worker covered her with a plastic bag, causing her to die a slow, agonizing death.

Or, he asks her, “Which do you prefer, the red toilet paper or the blue toilet paper?” “

If the victim chooses the red color, Aka Manto slaughters his victim, rips out his throat, and ends the killing by removing his head completely from his body, then cleansing the victim's blood completely, unless their clothes actually become red because of the blood and make them appear as if they are wearing red clothes.

If the victim chooses the color blue, then he suffocates him until his body and face turn blue and thus the victim dies asphyxiated.
