The asasabonsam is a vampire-like monster species found in the folklore of the Ashanti people in Ghana, West Africa. This African vampire has a human appearance with a set of iron teeth and hooks for feet that point in both ways. The creature is hairy and has large blood-shot eyes.

The creature lived deep in the forest and was rarely encountered.

Asasabonsam sat on treetops, allowing its legs to dangle downward and using its hook-shaped feet to capture unwary passer-bys. The creature would eat the victim alive.
