The large demonic dog in Germany. It has the power to stand on its hind legs and grow tall enough to rip out the throat of its victim. Another killing method of the Aufhocker is to leap on its prey and grow heavier and heavier until its victim is crushed to death. Sometimes it manifests as a horse. Anyone who rides this horse finds themselves unable to dismount and the horse then charges at a great pace and throws its rider off. If one is able to survive the Aufhocker until sunrise will most likely be set free.
