What is ZOZO?

Posted by Scott McMan | August 25, 2011 461

While scanning the interwebs today I happened across a video of a Ouija session that allegedly called up a demonic entity referred to as ZOZO.

ZOZO is thought to be a demon who has been documented since the early 1800s. However, once people began using Ouija boards ZOZO began to show itself more and more frequently.

Apparently there are other Z named entities with ZOZO being the most prevalent. This alleged demon is said to attach itself to certain unlucky individuals who venture into it’s domain. Some claim ZOZO will go to any length to trick its naive callers.

Below you will find some accounts from those who have had run ins with such entities. Typically I would pass something like this off to Javier as It’s not my thing per say. I am the first to admit that I do not find Ouija boards as good wholesome entertainment. However, I am taking a neutral position here as I have no idea as to the validity of the following stories.

Zozo shows up in spooky old Virginia display case?

The following was sent to me via the TrueGhostTales website:

I read with great interest your story and here’s why. I live in rural Virginia, where just about every other house has a family cemetery plot on it property it seems. I had just moved here from So Cal. I wanted to create a coffee table with glass top and display some local artifacts underneath that represented the Virginia area and its rich history. I went to a yard sale and bought the table I wanted to refurbish and construct to display some of the items. When I took the top off the table I found a home made ouija board in the hollow space under the top. There was no planchette. At first I thought nothing of it, but when I told this story to a few elder locals they both bristled and told me that when a board is separated from its planchette, its an effort to sever the “access key” of certain spirits that came thru that particular board using that particular planchette. I have a healthy curiosity and interest in the “super natural” but Im not driven by it, nor do I “crave” the adrenalin rush that comes with dabbling in the art.

I constructed the table and one of the object I place in the table was the ouija. The first day I had it on display, along with several other items. I found that all the items were pushed to the very furthest sides of the table and only the board was the focal point of the display. Thinking perhaps someone in the house moved the table and tilted it thus shifting its contents, I simply removed the glass and re-arranged the display items, this time securing them with glue. I let that dry before replace the glass.

Two nights later I heard my dogs growing in the bedroom where I sleep and they were staring at the door. I got up to see what they were upset at, and when It turned on the lights in the adjoining family room, I saw the table. The glass was scratched/etched with something sharp from underneath…and there was no mistaking the letter Z in that etching. I then knew something was up with that board or with one of the objects in the display. I have since dismantled the table and put ALL of the display items, including the board, in a box. There are a few religious items that are in that box now as well. I have had no other experiences, but until I read your story about the entity ZOZO, I had no way of connecting the Z etched in the glass with the ouija.

Another Tulsa Zozo encounter

Recent Zozo encounter used with permission

Hello Darren, my name is Maryah ( last name withheld ). I Live In Tulsa Oklahoma. I Went to target in about feberuary to buy a glow in the dark Ouija board. Well last weekend Me and my friends decide to play with it. We met this nice spirit named Lily, and she needed help. We were trying to help her but nothing worked. Later that night around (12:00am) she left. We then again asked if anyone was there. It said ZOZO and we didnt think anything about it. We asked questions and she seemed friendly. So We all got up and went to the living room with the board still out. we sat around talking and drinking mountain dew.

After about 10 minutes we put our glasses in the sink and went back to her room only to discover that the board was gone! We looked everywhere for it. So after a while we gave up and went back into to the living room to find it there. So we went back into the room and played with it some more. At about 3:33 am my pony tail holder broke and my hair went over my face and i guess i blacked out. My friends said i was possesed and that when Lily came back she said ZOZO her sister is in the room, they asked where and the pointer flew to me.

They said i tried to hurt them, that i was speaking a different language like Latin. The most freaky thing was that we had a candle lit and when ZOZO left i was waking back up and the candle was out and when we turned on the lights the center of the candle was gone no wick nothing. It was like a cup without the bottom. This happened many times though out the night and we used brand new candles every time. I believe i was possesed by the demon.

In further correspondence with Maryah she says the spirit Lily described Zozo as her evil twin sister. Lily told the girls that Lucifer was their Father, and Lily was punished for not wanting to become evil like her sister Zozo.

Lily explained Zozo as an immortal spirit that chooses certain people to become attached to their “self” where it remains. Maryah says Zozo will only come thru on Ouija sessions when she is on the board.

In recent weeks I have been sent accounts of encounters with a “Mama Zaza.” Also a spirit entity that identifies itself as only “Mama.” Stories of the Mama Ouija spirit are found on the internet.

Some deities were thought to have the ability to be either gender, and the Zozo Phenomena includes encounters in which it represents it’self as female. Some believe it is a real demon, and it’s minions operate using it’s identity as Zozo. Others have indicated they do not believe it is demonic, but a spirit anomaly none the less.

Whatever it is, it is out there. And the amount of people who report it is very disturbing. When when we be able to put the pieces together and identify what is really going on?

Zozo Experiences

I too have had experiences with Zozo, but I am just now finding out that others have come in contact with the same “spirit” through the quija board. My experiences were all about 5 years ago and I now refuse to touch a quija board. I would always play with my grandmother and husband on my grandmother’s board. The board would only work if I was touching it with them, never without me. Everytime I touched the board zozo would come through..just like Darren’s story nice at first, perhaps a little mischievious..then “zozo started telling me specific things like…”I was with you in your red truck when you went to Ashley’s house” and so on and so forth, saying that Zozo was following me and always with me. This was all about 5 years ago and had left my mind until I got a call from my husband at work today saying that he had talked to a coworker about quija boards and that he had shared my zozo story with his coworker. His coworker told him that he had heard of a demon named zozo and to do his research. So that’s what I’m doing now and came across this page…does anyone know where I can find some good information? Other than personal stories??

I haven’t used the ouija board in about 8 months, I used to do it all the time. I stopped because I was sick of getting Zozo, I got him every single time. I live in New York and I’m close friends with someone who lives in New Mexico, and we would get off the phone and do the ouija board at the same time. She used to get Zozo all the time too, and stopped around the same time I did. And since then she’s been hearing and seeing things constantly, and she’s NOT schizophrenic. I think that has something to do with Zozo, maybe but I’m not sure. Actually I remember one night after using the ouija board, I was going to sleep and i heard something on the floor. It sounded like someone was crawling, but quickly, around the bed. I didn’t have my cats in the room, and it wasn’t a rat or mouse because we didn’t have those in our house. I have quite a few experiences regarding Zozo, really.

hello, i purchaseda ouiji board at a garage sale from an elderly couple. I have always had an interested in the spirit world and had a great interest in trying to make contact. I did not dare to play the ouiji by myself so I just left it packed away until I had a friend convinced me to use it last night. FOr a hour we spoke to this woman spirit and as we went on with the session the word zozo kept being spelled out. as a newbie at this I had no clue what it meant until i looked it up and found it on your website. The energy on the oracle was wild and i am certain if we had removed our hands it would have flew off the board. several times it tried to spell out the alphabet. It was scary as heck and was terrified to see that it was evil… do i still need to cleanse the house even if we went to “goodbye”? I have children and am scared for them.

Many of you laugh at such things, others are terrified, still others are fascinated. I am none of those as I prefer to not get involved at all.

After you read the article you will find lots more info at the source and other sites as well as related videos on youtube.

This is an entity I’d never heard of until today. I certainly hope it doesn’t scare you too much unless you like to be frightened, that is.

The following two tabs change content below.
I grew up in rural NWPA, surrounded in forest. I took an early interest in cryprozoology and sharks and have read many books on various crypto subjects such as Bigfoot and Megalodon over the years. I am not a professional writer or a journalist, but I do the best I can. I have a quirky, obscurely dry and sometimes sarcastic sense of humor than can get me in trouble. Some love me and some hate me, but I am who I am.

  • zebragirl

    Not at all sure if this is where I should be posting/new to this site/new to this stuff in general, but my youngest child has been using/encountering ZOZO lately.

    Let me start by saying that I do not have an opinion as to whether or
    not spirits exist. I am a Christian and we do not own a OUIJA board! We
    do have an odd ability to predict events and very accurate intuition in
    various members of our family. Last September we moved into a new home.
    Initially both children refused to take one of the bedrooms for an
    unknown reason (they just didn’t want it.) We gave it to our 3 (now 4)
    year old, thinking he’d put up less of a fight. We settled in and
    shortly thereafter, our son refused to sleep in his room. We would find
    him in various places of the house, as he desperately claims that there
    were “monsters” in his room. We initially thought this to be just a
    childish fear and brushed it off. The only odd thing i noticed was that
    both cats slept under the right window of his room. We put the letters
    ADAM above his dresser and the next day my oldest showed me that the A
    had fallen and now it said DAM. We laughed.
    Shortly thereafter,
    our 4 year old told us that the monster came in through his right
    window at night. he describes him as the “puppet man” with something on
    his hand trying to tell him stories but the man does not talk “through
    his mouth.” the man was described as large, with a hairy face. In my
    son’s descriptions, the man did not hurt or touch him, but continuously
    tries to “tell stories” or “talk to him.” when asked what the “puppet
    man” wants….my son replies “to talk with me.” my son also feels like
    this monster is “invading” his space. it has been months, and yet my son
    will not sleep in the room. My son tells me that the monster will not
    cross the door way of his room as he can’t.
    A little while
    later he asked me if I had somehow came home from work (i work nights)
    and put a ladder to his right window, came through the window and sat
    indian style on the floor next to his bed and when he asked who i was i
    replied “I’m a mommy.” I informed him that it wasn’t me and he stated,
    “I didn’t think she was actually you.” This mommy wears a black dress
    and has dark hair. i think she is white skinned. He does not fear her as
    much as “puppet man” and his fear of the room lessened some after her
    appearances. She has only appeared in his room.
    Within the last few weeks he claims that there is a
    10 year old boy named Micheal around. He does come out of his room.
    We’ve heard my son talking to him and playing with him. He pretends to
    interact with Micheal. He appears to appreciate Micheal’s presence and
    even offers him toys. He describes micheal’s skin as orange brown and he
    has black hair. Within the last few days he’s been telling me that
    Micheal has a woman (possibly mother) named ZO ZO. she’s pinker skinned
    with black and yellow/white hair. clearly she’s associated with micheal. He’s
    been using the name ZO ZO so frequently, that I decided to google it,
    just to see if there was a cartoon character, or find a logical reason
    for the name ZO ZO to keep coming up. A lady bug appeared yesterday in the bathroom and he said we’d name her “ZO ZO ”
    I am a little concerned
    and frightened that it is suggested that this is a spirit entity. I’m
    not sure what to think of my son’s strange “monsters,” however if such a
    think does exist, should i be concerned for his safety.

  • Baliey Carroll

    Has anyone seen Zozo before because I am worried for a friend of mine im scared he may have seen him and may have been attacked several times by him.

  • Novy

    only in the name of Jesus Christ, all the demons can be defeated. but i think you should contact a pastor to discuss about this, what action should be done together (not alone)… and do the house blessing.

  • Jess

    If you are getting voices in your head since that ouija experience I seriously recommend getting someone to prey for you, my dad is a minister and he has told me great stories of how he has freed people from spiritual voices in their heads, that’s so serious I really hope you get help from someone in prayer.
