The Grongi in Kamen Rider Kuuga Compared to the Filipino Mythological Aswang

The Grongi in Kamen Rider Kuuga I would say are pretty scary themselves.  While watching them, I thought that these people are quite similar to the mythological Aswang from the Philippines.  Where do they share common points?

The Grongi assume human forms from beautiful women to various forms of men while they do become animals and need be, assume their ferocious forms.  They are both also immune to sunlight.  They blend in with the townspeople while having their own secret language as enemies of ancient mankind.

They both play a cruel game on human beings with a hunting game.  They treat humans as prey and for sport.   and bite their victims.  For example, an aswang may play a game of killing pregnant women by eating their unborn for sport or the Grongi, kills children for sport.

And if that's not enough, they become ferocious monsters that hunt down and kill human beings to add thrill to their dirty lives as ancient enemies of mankind.  What is more is that both groups of the supernatural are usually hunted by epic heroes like the rise of Kuuga in Japan or any Filipino epic hero.
