If you believe that Kappa are fearsome monsters who want to eat your liver — here are a few tips on escaping a kappa.
1. Feed the KappaKappa are easily appeased with cucumbers (the kappa's favorite food).
2. BowKappa are exceedingly polite and find it difficult to resist returning a bow. This is a problem for the kappa because they have a cavity filled with water on top of their head. If this cavity dries out they become paralyzed.
When a kappa bows their water usually spills and they become defenseless. In fact, they can't move at all until someone fills their head with water. If you refill a kappa's head that kappa is forever indebted to you.
3. Fight the KappaKappa are about the size of children. They have no particular super powers (except that they are great swimmers). It's possible to fight off a kappa. In water it's more difficult — the kappa will try to drown you.
