Urban Legends

Hello Kitty

The real story of Hello Kitty is a scary urban legend about the origin of the popular Japanese cartoon character. They say that Hello Kitty is demonic and was originally a product of devil worship and a satanic pact.

Hello Kitty

According to the legend, Hello Kitty was created back in the 1970s by a Chinese woman. Apparently, her 14-year old daughter was disagnosed with cancer of the mouth. The doctors told the mother that her child was terminally ill and there was nothing they could do for her.

The mother refused to give up hope and visited every church in the city to pray for her daughter. When that didn’t work, she came to the end of her rope. The desperate mother became involved with satanic rituals and devil worship. They say that, in order to save her daughter’s life, she made a pact with the devil himself.

For curing her daughter’s cancer, the devil demanded only one thing in return. She would have to create a cartoon character that would appeal to children all over the world. The devil wanted to use the popularity of this cartoon character to trick people into worshipping Satan.

When her daughter recovered from her cancer, the mother kept her promise to the devil. She created Hello Kitty.

As the story goes, Hello Kitty was designed with no mouth because the daughter had cancer of the mouth. Hello Kitty’s pointed ears represent the Devil’s horns. The word “Kitty” means “Demon” in Chinese. So “Hello Kitty” really means “Hello Demon”. They say that anyone who buys Hello Kitty merchandise is welcoming the Devil into their hearts. Satanists all over the world use Hello Kitty as a secret symbol and many of them actually tattoo the image on their skin. Devil Worshippers refer to Hello Kitty as “The Daughter of the Devil.”

Of course, this is all just an urban myth. Hello Kitty was actually created by a Japanese company named Sanrio that specializes in designing and branding cartoon characters. Hello Kitty was originally designed to be a decoration on a purse. Also, Kitty does not mean “Demon” in Chinese.

The designers created Hello Kitty without a mouth because they wanted make her emotions ambiguous. The blank expression means that you can project your own emotions onto the cartoon. If you are sad, then Hello Kitty looks sad. If you are happy, then Hello Kitty looks happy. Hello Kitty will seem to feel whatever emotion you are feeling.

So, the truth is that Hello Kitty is not associated with satanic rituals or devil worship at all.

However, in 1999, a brutal murder took place in Hong Kong. It later became known as the “Hello Kitty murder”. Three men kidnapped a young woman and kept her captive in their apartment for a month. They tortured her and then murdered her. It was known as the “Hello Kitty Murder” because the killers cut off the victim’s head and hid it inside a Hello Kitty doll… Now, that’s a true story.


  • i am a little creeped out i used to like hello kitty but not anymore because reading this (9/10)

  • hello kitty is legit my favorite character so i don’t judge by backgrounds(not like she has one) but she is awesome

  • I have, like, 10 Hello Kitty dolls so I was thinking, ‘UM…?’ When I read that…

  • I love Hello Kitty so I saw this and was like, ‘HELLO KITTY? HECK, YEAH!’ Hello Kitty is AMAZING; never doubt her or say anything mean about her or I will come find you! Kidding…

  • OK, I was about to say Kitty in Chinese does not mean demon, it means Māomī
    That’s completely unrealistic anyway.

  • HAHAHA loved this story I told this story to my besties and they actually believed me but then I told them it was not true

  • OK I LLLLLOOOOOOVVVVVVEEEEE hello Kitty and everything y’all are saying about Satan is not true… For all those Hello Kitty lovers(I call us Hello Kitty Lovers lol) but for all of the Hello Kitty lovers Hello Kitty is actually a little third grader girl from London… She dresses like a cat because she is in love with cats( Just like me!!!! XD Lol) Her real name is actually Kitty White. Just letting all of those Hello Kitty fans know!!

  • I like hello kitty, and I have some merchandise like stuffed hello kitty’s and a backpack from first grade. And my aunt always said I could be possessed and not know it, or be the Devils daughter. And I never thought I was really THAT dark, but the other day I found an old diary of mine and I began to try and read it (the handwriting wasn’t too good) and I came to one page and my hand writing was slightly better and I had singed my name in my blood at the bottom of the page. I was literally like ‘wtf. Time to burn this shit.’

  • Everybody knows the first part isn’t true. But in the second part I wouldn’t wanted to find that head

  • i’ve heard the story before and read it on newspapers. 4 teenagers kidnaped their friend and tortured her. they even forced her to eat their poops. when she dies, they cut her into pieces and let dogs eat it. her head is hid in a hello kitty mermaid doll. but lastly they tell the police what the’ve done because the ghost of their friend haunted them…

  • Please stop making fun of Hello Kitty, she is called Hello Kitty because she is a cat. She is only a cartoon character, plus I have a Hello Kitty jigsaw

  • as long as I can remember I’ve never gotten into the hello kitty fan groups :p

  • I can’t believe people could so horrible and cut off someone’s head, eventually hiding it in Hello Kitty!
