Spring Heel Jack (Spring Heeled Jack) who terrorised London, England, many years before emigrating to Cape Cod; the weird tree octopus, of Olympic National Park, that survives because the climate of Washington state is so wet; the spirit of a 1920s flapper with bobbed hair that haunts Waldheim Cemetery in Forest Park; the reputedly haunted Renaissance Los Angeles Airport hotel, part of the Marriott chain; the musical water sprite in the pools of the French Broad River, east of Asheville, who dooms those it lures, not indifferently like the lorelei but with the deliberate malevolence of a siren; the gash-throated phantom of Luc Simone Aury that haunts the area outsde of the Amelia Island Museum of History, formerly the Old Jail where he was hanged, in Fernandina Beach (his attempt at suicide failed and his throat was stitched by a surgeon but the long drop of the gallows caused his wound to open and shower the horrified spectators with blood - Aury couldn't have planned it better if he had tried!); the werewolf-like dewayo (dwayyo), seen in the vicinity of Middletown and, appropriately, Wolfsville; the ghost "Vivian" who haunts the Hunter Arms Inn in St Cloud; the ghostly games of bowls, played at Oyster Point, between Captain Kidd (who had committed himself to Satan by burying his bible) and his demonic companions; tall tales of the giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his blue ox, Babe (some scholars regard Wisconsin as his true home and the earliest collected stories were probably in "Legends of Paul Bunyan, Lumberjack" published by the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters); Native American stories about the wendigo, a ghoulish, insatiable, man-eating manitou that was sometimes a mutated, cannibalistic human; the ghost of Claudia in the Mansions Hotel, San Francisco; the alchemist who sought the elixir or life, in a turreted house at the junction of Essex and North Streets, in Salem; the fearsome snallygaster, a tentacled predatory bird or dragon that stalks the Blue Ridge Mountains; and the ill-omened bleeding horse of the Great Smoky Mountains, are among the strange tales of the USA.

The reptilian man, or possibly people, who lurk in the Ohio River; the lion-headed serpent of the Wabash, seen at Huntington; the Catskill Witch who, according to Native American folklore, commanded the weather from Top Mountain and Round Top before playing tricks on anyone who ventured into her domain, once called Ontiora or Mountains of the Sky; the mischievious Pink Lady of Grove Park Inn, Asheville, who is a spirit but not a gin cocktail; a young boy whose spirit haunts the Grand Opera House in Oshkosh, where he died from a fall; the angelic warriors who battled on winged horses at Chimney Rock, confirming the truth of the War in Heaven; the supernatural sinking of the island where stands the Nix's Mate beacon, named after the ship's mate who cursed the island before being wrongly executed for killing Captain Nix; the black eyed boy, presumably a BEK, who terrified a large airman on a military base; the many ghosts of the Oxford Saloon in Snohomish, including the spirits of "working girls" and a murdered policeman; not Dracula but Jutaculla (Judaculla), a slant-eyed giant that dwells in the caves of Devil's Courthouse and/or Tanasee Bald (Tannasee Bald) in the appropriately named Transylvania County (Tanasee Bald extends into Haywood County, where the bigfoot-like Boojum prowls); the invisible but tactile ghost at the Park Hotel in Hot Springs; the story of Indian fighter Bill Quick, who had ninety-nine human skulls displayed as trophies in his cabin near Kenton and, on his death bed, made his son Tom swear to add the hundredth, little knowing that the hundredth trophy in the cabin would be placed there by a Native American warrior and would be Tom's own skull (there certainly was a Tom Quick, notorious for killing Native Americans indiscriminately, and the legend probably grew from a desire to create justice in legend if not in reality); creepy and malevolent black eyed children (Black Eyed Kids or BEKs) in Abilene; the phantom guests of Desoto House Hotel in Galena (the hotel boasts Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S Grant as former living guests); and the ghosts of the El Tovar Hotel at the Grand Canyon, including a dark figure seen outside and the friendly spirit of Fred Harvey, a former owner, are more supernatural myths or scary stories of the United States of America.
