Small humanoid beings from Philippine folklore. They have long beards and nails and live in groups near anthills or thickets. Their homes are said to contain treasures. The kama-kama are very strong and have squeaky voices, and come out of hiding just after sunset. When they are harmed or angered, they will pinch the offenders, who will then start develop red or black spots on their bodies where they were pinched.
