A creature from Belarusian mythology. This is a dangerous water man with a puffy face, goose bumps and a huge belly. He is very loving, for which he kidnaps women: he casts a spell and takes it with him under the water. After playing enough, he returns it back, and the woman acquires the privilege of never drowning.

Balamutnya should be feared in the evening, as he is afraid of the sun.​​‌‌‌‌

Balamutnya can be considered a kind of special subspecies of water-incubus.

There is a Balamuten in every river. He's the one who turns whirlpools, messes up the water. He can be confused with an ordinary man, but there is something inhuman in his face. Maybe it's the eyes, or maybe it's the hair. In the evening, they say, he can come out of the water, but you will never see him in sunny weather. The Balamutnik is afraid of the sun, drought.
