Rokurokubi is a type of Japanese yōkai that has two types: one whose head can detach from the body, and one whose neck can elongate.
The type whose head can detach is called nukekubi. It is said to be the evil type, since it feeds on human blood through biting its preys. Its body is said to be weak when its head is detached, and this is the only time when it can be killed.
The regular rokurokubi is the one that can elongate its neck, sometimes even without it knowing (meaning it can’t always control its neck elongation).
It is said that the rokurokubi is produced through human karma. In one tale, a man cheated his wife with another woman (to the point that his wife committed suicide upon discovering his unfaithfulness), and when he got the other woman pregnant, their child was born a rokurokubi.

I had more fun drawing these doodles than any other things
I know that feel. Especially when I posted some art specifically for some people I KNOW are really into it, and they only “like” but don’t reblog. XD

Someone on Miiverse was having a drawing contest where the guideline was to draw any Smash character you liked in a bikini. Naturally, I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity.
