I came across this earlier.  This one is a pretty weird one to me.  Bathroom hauntings.

"Aka Manto is another of the popular Japanese urban legends to revolve around public bathrooms. According to the stories, Aka Manto was a beautiful man while alive. He was hounded so much by admirers that he eventually started wearing a mask to cover his beauty.
It is unclear how Aka Manto’s life ended, but it was likely gruesome as he now haunts public bathrooms. The stories say that you will be sitting in a stall and suddenly hear a mysterious voice asking, “Do you want red or blue paper?” If you choose blue, you will be strangled until your face is blue. If you choose red, you will be sliced apart until your clothes are stained red with blood."

Oh my I am glad I don't hear anything like that, although, I have had the shower come on and off. That is unsettling enough :fright: :rofl:  But my best bathroom scare was when a red belly black snake literally stuck its head out of the shower water drain.  I am just glad it decided to hide in the drain and not come out into the bathroom. And boy! Did I have a lot of showers with something over that drain :shocked:

Author and folklorist Matthew Meyer has stated that the Aka Manto has been recorded as a schoolyard rumor dating back as early as the 1930s. In that time, the word manto commonly referred to a sleeveless kimono-style jacket, whereas in the modern day, manto is the Japanese word for cloak or cape. Because of this, different generations have had differing views of Aka Manto's supposed physical appearance.

If an individual attempts to outsmart Aka/Aoi Manto by asking for a different color of paper, cloak or cape, it is often said that they will be dragged to an underworld or hell as a result. In some versions, choosing a "yellow" paper, cloak or cape will result in the occupant's head being forced into the toilet. Ignoring the spirit, or replying that one does not want or prefer either kind of paper, is said to make the spirit go away. In some accounts, rejecting both options and running away from Aka Manto will also result in the individual's survival.
