 The Mothman is a paranormal creature rumoured to be seen and be the cause of many disasters in the world. From West Virginia to New York, Mothman sightings have been all over the place. Just maybe, the next sighting, might be at your front door.

Origin Edit

The Mothman was first sighted on November 16th, 1966 and soon the caught the attention of a local newscast who quickly documented the story, leaving hundreds of people shocked at the story before them. Just one document of this creature alone, left many breathless, and soon after, the story became larger and larger, as others even started to come forward with their own claims of spotting this creature in several parts of the wooded areas around West Virgina and spread to Point Pleasant.


The descriptions of this creature, are nearly all similar, since each describes a moth-like creature, which almost has the appearance of a man, with massive wings. The estimated wing span of the creature is at least up to seven-eight feet, and the creature itself is at least eight feet tall. It is said, that the creature has large red bug-eyes, which is sometimes described to be sunken deep into its head, and its actual head, is also said, to be actually attached to it's torso with no neck.

A few describe the creature actually having the appearance of a moth, with small fangs sunk deep into the fur-like head, while others claim that the creaure in fact does not have a mouth, but instead is just a creature that could live on force and energy.

A Shocking Event...Edit

Shortly after the event-filled months of the Mothman sightings, on the date of Decemeber, 15, 1967, the Silver bridge took an unexpected fall, shortly after a flying creature was reported climbing along the edges of the building, and soon afterwards, disappeared as the bridge slowly collapsed into the river, killing hundreds of innocent lives. The cause of the falling bridge, is still under suspicion, but shortly after that sighting of the strange creature around the bridge, we can only give very few answers that could possibly lead to the event occuring.


Much like any other cryptid, each creature has their own type of theory, and much like any other theory with a cryptid, the first cryptid that comes to mind, is the creature having an alien origin. Unlike most cryptids, this theory actually fits perfectly in place, and actually can be possible that the Mothman itself, could've come from beyond this world, another dimension perhaps or from the wonders of outer space.

Of course, even though the theory is over-used, the chance..of it there, However, some scientists believe it is an experiment gone wrong, causing complete madness to happen, some thinking it is just an escaped experiment, concocted by the government being an experiment with both moths and humans.

Pop cultureEdit

For the time being, Mothman has been everywhere, from T-shirts, to movies, to toys, this creature has gone popular amongst many, is possibly one of the strangest creatures to have ever been discovered, leaving many possibilities open, making this creature under a debate, of whatever or not it flies among us.
