Bakunawa, ito yung creature na lumulunok ng buwan kaya nagkakaroon ng eclipse...
Ang tikbalang o tigbalang (binabaybay ding tigbalan o tikbalan) ay isang nilalang na may mala-kabayong hitsura. Kabilang ito sa mga nilalang ng mitolohiya at kuwentong-bayan ng Pilipinas. Mayroon itong katawan ng isang tao subalit may mga paa ng isang kabayo. Batay sa paniniwala, nakasasanhi ang tikbalang ng pagkaligaw ng landas ng mga tao, partikular na habang nasa kagubatan at mga bundok. Tumutukoy ang salitang tikbalangin sa pangkukulam sa tao sa pamamagitan ng pagsasaanyo ng isang nilalang upang maligaw ito ng daan. Bagaman tinatawag o maituturing na isa itong uri ng sentauro, naiiba ito sa tunay na sentauro
Bal-Bal is a monster that steals corpses whether it is in a funeral or grave and feeds on them. It has a strong sense of smell for dead human bodies. It also has claws and teeth sharp enough to rip the clothing of the dead. Since it eats nothing but corpses, it has a foul breath. Once this monster has spotted and eaten the corpse, it will leave the trunk of a banana tree in the coffin creating an illusion of the stolen body to trick people.
Ghoul ba ito pag English?
Ayon sa matatanda,na pati bata ay alam na rin, sila ay nag uumpisang mangbiktima pag sapit ng alas dyis(10) ng gabi.maraming nakapag sabi na mababango ang mga ito,pero amoy cheap. Kumakain sila ng laman ng tao,pero hindi nila pinapatay. Sa katunayan,masarap na pamamaraan ang ginagamit nila. Pangunahin nilang puntirya ang mga taong ‘tigang’ at may kaunting salapi.
Madalas silang magsuot ng maiksi,labas ang dibdib, at ngumunguya ng juicy fruit gum. Sinasabing mabisang pangontra sa kanila ang ‘sampal ng isang misis’. Noong una kong mabalitaan ang tungkol sa kanila,minabuti kong harapin sila para puksain,pero nabigo ako.
Minokawa is a giant bird that belongs to the dragon family. Early people believed that this creature is so big that it can swallow (or cover) the sun to explain of occurrence of eclipses. It is even described as a giant bird named Minokawa that lives in outer space which can devour the sun and the moon, and would try to do the same with the earth.
In a Bagobo tale, the Minokawa is a bird as large as an island. Its feathers are those of sharp swords, the eyes reflect like mirrors, its beak and legs are like steel. It lives "outside the sky, at the eastern horizon". While the Baua lived "above the sky" because the Visayans believe that there is a cave called "calulundan" above the sky, the entrance covered by blue smoke.
Before time began, very long ago, a great bird called Minokawa swallowed the moon. Seized with fear, all the people began to scream and made great noises. Then the bird peeped down to see what the matter was, and opened his mouth. But as soon as he opened his mouth, the moon sprang out and ran away.
The Minokawa-bird is as large as the Island of Negros or Bohol. It has a beak of steel, and his claws too are of steel. His eyes are mirrors, and each single feather is a sharp sword. He lives outside the sky, at the eastern horizon, ready to seize the moon and after the unsuccessful attempt of swallowing the satellite, it journeys and haunts again lurking under the earth.
The moon makes eight holes in the eastern horizon to come out of, and eight holes in the western horizon to go into, because every day the big bird tries to catch her, and she is afraid. The exact moment he tries to swallow her is just when she is about to come in through one of the holes in the east to shine on us again. If the Minokawa should swallow the moon, and the sun too, he would then come down to earth and gulp down men also. But when the moon is in the belly of the big bird, and the sky is dark, then all the Bagobo people will scream and cry, and beat gongs, because they fear they will all be eaten. Soon this racket makes the Minokawa-bird look down and "open his mouth to hear the sound." Then the moon jumps out of the bird's mouth and runs away.
The Batibat or Bangungot is a vengeful demon found in Ilocano folklore. These demons were blamed as the cause of the fatal nocturnal disease called bangungot. A batibat takes the form of a huge, old, fat woman that resides in trees. They usually come in contact with humans when the tree that they reside in is felled and made into a support post for a house. This causes them to migrate into holes found in the post. The batibat forbids humans from sleeping near its post. When a person does sleep near it, the batibat transforms to its true form and attacks that person. It sits upon the chest of its victim until he suffocates. To ward off the batibat, one should bite one's thumb or wiggle one's toes. In this way, the person will awaken from the nightmare induced by the batibat.

Mariang Labo / Mariang Taga / Mariang Tigbas
The ballad of Maria Labo-the thing is, the story of Maria Labo has found its way in the local papers so most probably, this story was partly true. this story caused a stir in the city some 5 years ago. this was about a young woman named Maria who went to Canada to be a caregiver. Before she went abroad, she had taken care of an elderly man who was said to have possessed the so-called "aswang" curse. When the old man died, he passed his powers to Maria.
Finding no luck in Canada, Maria went home. It was then that her thirst for human flesh started there. When her husband, a policeman, went home one night, he was looking for their kids. It was said that the deranged Maria pointed to the stove where she said she cooked her children. Enraged, her husband struck her with a bolo ("labo") where she obtained a scar on her face, earning her the monicker Maria Labo. it was said that she fled to Visayas, then to Mindanao, in a quest to satiate her hunger for human flesh and viscera. Like a typical aswang, she has the ability to change her appearance. sometimes she appears as a beautiful young lass... at other times, she appears as an old woman.
sa ibang version na narinig ko nung tatagain daw siya nung asawa bigla nagbago daw ng anyo si maria at naging baboy damo,tumakas pero naabutan pa rin sya ng asawa at nataga sa mukha. Mula noon di na nakita pa si maria, pero may usap-usapan daw na may nakikita silang babaeng may taga sa mukha at nambibiktima raw sa iba't ibang lugar. Nasa maynila nga daw ito ngayon at naninilbihang katulong.
