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.
