Monster in My Pocket Comic
Red Cap is monster #25 from the Series 1 figures.
The Red Cap comes in all four original colors, as well as the four neon colors. A ten-point monster, the Red Cap is depicted with his cap, holding up his knife.
A murderous goblin or fairy, the Red Cap haunts old British and Scottish castles and waits for unsuspecting victims to cross his path, after which he stabs them to death and drapes his cap with their blood. He has soaked his cap so many times that it has become red itself. However, if the blood dries on his hat, he will die himself. Legend states that the only way to escape from the quick and agile Red Cap is to recite passages from the Bible. This causes the Red Cap to lose a tooth and flee. He is also particularly afraid of crosses. Though the Monster in my Pocket version of Red Cap wields a dagger, more often than not, the Red Cap would use an iron pike as his weapon of choice.
