The Kappa inhabit the local rivers in what I assume is a conspiracy with the adult populous to keep those damn kids out of the water. Legend has it that they are compelled to bow in return if bowed to, this combined with the depression in their head that  holds water and the fact that if it empties they become paralyzed, leads to them being fairly easily dealt with so you are standing on the ground.

Interestingly if one refills the bowl on their head with water they will be indebted for life, which would be great if we weren’t talking about some kind of child sized reptilian hobbit monster that can only live underwater without constant fear of head tipping paralysis.

A Japanese river monster that apparently tries to drown those who swim in the rivers
