At best, it’s, as it says in the link, grotesque. At worst…well, I’ll say. Anyway, here it is for anyone to see:

N.B. This is a character in a manga, Lille Barro from Bleach.

@luigirovatti You obviously have not seen a Dungeons and Dragons Monster Manual.

Bizarre but nto scary and I am a squeamish chicken.

Not scary to me. Just looks a bit different and cool, really.

No, looks like someone spilt milk & blew on it through a straw.

No. My brain always tries to make sense of pictures. Of this one I could not, so that just made me feel frustrated.

Google smallpox , then look at the Manga image, go back to viewing smallpox for a few minutes, now give the Manga pic one more glance.
Still think it’s scary??

@cheebdragon; @janbb: No, just bizarre. Lateral thinking and all that.

Weird. Not scary.

Not even a little. Confusing is the best I can do. The thing is about as threatening as a pile of sticks and it is vulnerable as hell with 2 backbones virtually screaming “break me with one hand”

@luigirovatti Fair enough, Smallpox is the stuff of nightmares in my opinion and all I see in the manga image is a deformed praying mantis.

Not scary. Weird, to me.

If I saw an actual creature / spirit on the material plane, that looked like that, it could be scary. But it looks like a cartoon spirit creature or something, so no.

Cartoon of a mosquito —not very scary.

Not scary. Not grotesque.

It’s confusing to me, but not grotesque or scary. No amount of fictional history behind it could make that grotesque in my eyes, possibly scary? But defintely not grotesque

No, not in the least.
