A humanoid creature with the head of a brown or black horse from Philippine myth. He stalks on travellers in the forest and follows them in a manner that no matter how the traveller tries to evade the Tikbalang, the monster will always be near. The Tikbalang has the ability to transform into a human and if desired into a human that is known to its victim. To avoid the Tikbalang, one must where their shirt inside out or occasionally ask permission out loud to pass through and then tread quietly as not to disturb the beast.
