TriviaEdit

  • The batterfly has similarities to the Hitōban (飛頭蛮), a Chinese monster that separates its head from the rest of its body and floats about with its giant ears as wings and the Chonchón, a mythical creature from South America that takes the form of a human head with an unusually large pair of ears that function as wings.
