Due to their affinity for darkness and apocalyptic terror, tzitzimitls are widely feared as harbingers of death and destruction. Some sages consider them to be instruments of the gods, called down to destroy worlds whose times have come, while others believe that tzitzimitls are exiles from a far-off civilization of spacefaring giants. The truth of their nature is likely even more disturbing.

A tzitzimitl’s arrival in a region often presages a deadly disaster or apocalyptic event.
