Another popular supernatural beings (or however you call them) in the Philippines are dwarves. There has always been two kinds as far as I know: puting dwende (white dwarf) and itim na dwende (black dwarf); the difference being, one kind is good and another evil. Growing up I've always heard that so and so's house has dwarves, so and so cousin has dwarf friends and my friends claiming they saw a group of them-- and I thought, why would these people lie if they haven't seen them? They must exist!
True or not, they have a huge place in the Philippine fairy tale scene so I just got to include them here.
