Hantu Kutti and Hantu Pelir ? Never Heard of them before[edit]

I am an ethnic Malay who grew up in the village but never before had I ever heard of our elders speaking of the Hantu Kutti and Hantu Pelir. Their entries do appear to be the works of a prankster. I'm sure further investigations will show that neither Hantu are recognised by Malay mythology. (talk) 13:51, 5 February 2012 (UTC)


This page is an embarassment, I admit I LOL at the descriptions (esp Hantu Kutti) but most of the hantu in this page are totally made up jokes. Besides, the list glaringly omits several 'classic' hantu such as Pontianak, Polong, Langsuir, Hantu Raya, Hantu Galah, Toyol, Jembalang Tanah, Penanggal and Hantu Kopek/Tetek. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:48, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Hantu demon[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Hantu demon's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "apostol":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 10:13, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
