A Loita do Banheiro

When translated, the title means "The Blonde in the Bathroom". She is sort of like the Brazilian version of Bloody Mary or Hanako-san. Every child in Brazil has a Loita do Banheiro story.

It is said she is a beautiful girl with long blonde hair. She is all cut up and she has bloody cotton stuffed in her mouth and nose. Blood streams out of her empty eye socket. Some say she appears in the mirror and stares at you, others say she asks you to remove the cotton from her nose.

To summon her, you need only go to the last stall in the bathroom, kick the door three times, flush the toilet three times, turn the tap on and off three times, and say a curse word aloud three times.

There are three legends of how she came to haunt school bathrooms:

1. The Troublemaker
She was a beautiful student with blonde hair. She often skipped classes and hung out in the restrooms. She would drink, smoke, and be generally up to no good. One day, during one of these escapades, she fell. She hit her head on the toilet in the last stall and bled to death. That is why she now haunts the school bathrooms.

2. The Viscount's Daughter
Her name is Maria Augusta. She was a Brazilian viscount's daughter. Her parents forced her to marry a man she didn't love who was also many years older than she was. It wasn't long before she started to have an affair. She and her lover ran off to Europe. Unfortunately, she contracted pneumonia and died. Her body was shipped back to her family. They say a mirror in her parents' house shattered the exact moment she died. They put her body in a glass casket and refused to bury her.

3. The Naughty Teacher
She was a teacher when she was alive and she fell in love with one of her students. When her husband found out, he flew into a jealous rage and murdered her. He stabbed her first, then cut her face to ribbons, and lastly, shoved her face into the toilet in the last stall. He held her head down until she drowned.
