Kiko (named "Japanese Floaty Girl" in the credits, played by Naomi Dane) is a monster shown to be used by the Japan branch of The Organization as part of their version of the ritual to appease The Ancient Ones.

The "floaty girl" being defeated by the japanese school girls performing a ritual.

It appears she was set loose within a school in Kyoto to target an all-girls class of nine-year-olds, who were sealed within a classroom without any adults. (possibly due to The Organization's remote locks) At first Kiko succeeds in terrifying the would-be sacrifices, but The Organization's attempt is defeated by the class who band together in the face of chaos and death to preform an exorcism that binds Kiko's spirit to a frog.

Either Kiko is bound to a happy frog, or Kiko is turned into a frog so she can live "happily," depending on the translation. (and potentially the translator's competence)

InspirationEdit

The monster is based on a piece of Japanese folklore called Yūrei, which are evil spirits originating from people who have been murdered or have committed suicide. They are not granted a peaceful afterlife and haunt people because of it.

Examples of this monster include Sadako of "The Ring" movie and Kayako of "The Grudge" (Ju-On).
