ZoZo is one of the most prominent and well-known demonic beings. From reality television shows to literature, ZoZo is commonly reported for being behind paranormal activity and hauntings.

What Is ZoZo?

No one knows what ZoZo actually looks like or what being he really is. But those who have come into contact with him report terrifying experiences.

Most commonly contacted through the use of an Ouija board, he seems to be a powerful demonic being with the potential to do significant physical and mental harm.

He sometimes goes by other names, such as ZoSo, ZaZa, Zo, or Pazuzu. He has been around for hundreds of years, with reports going back as early as 1906.

Is ZoZo Limited to Ouija?

While ZoZo is most often connected with using an Ouija board, it is possible that he can contact people outside of the game as well through other means. People have reportedly made contact with him during hypnosis, auto writing sessions and electronic voice phenomena (EVP).

Infamous Encounters

Darren Evans, a man from Oklahoma, notoriously encountered ZoZo himself. He first encountered the demon when playing with a Ouija board with his girlfriend. The demon reportedly shared information with Evans from the other side, and he became obsessed with Ouija. But over time, the ZoZo demon became more sinister.

Evans eventually had a nervous breakdown, claiming that demons were following him. The demon even threatened Evan's young daughter, saying he was going to steal her soul. She nearly died, and Evans realized he needed to take action. He ended up pursuing an exorcism to get ZoZo away from his family, but it was a terrifying experience that left an impression. Evans now runs a site dedicated to warning people about the dangers of messing with ZoZo.

Warning Signs

Like many demons, ZoZo typically makes his presence known. Below are a few warning signs that may indicate that you are meeting ZoZo:

  1. Rapid movements: If you are using an Ouija board, the planchette may begin moving rapidly. If you are doing hypnosis, the pendant or pendulum may begin to swing.
  2. Announcements: ZoZo may announce himself by spelling out his name.
  3. Feelings of unease: You may feel a sudden weight of dread or unease descend upon you.
  4. Darkness: You may see shadows moving, or the room you are in may get darker.

If you feel that ZoZo is with you, do not panic, but take action to end the connection to prevent bodily or mental harm.

Breaking the Connection

If ZoZo has contacted you, take the following steps to protect yourself:

  1. Remain calm: Demons and evil spirits feed off of fear, so take deep, calming breaths and steady yourself.
  2. Close the session: If you are playing Ouija, move the planchette to "goodbye" and formally close the game. If you are using another contact method, close it immediately.
  3. Do not speak his name: Using his name gives him power. Avoid speaking about him or to him.
  4. Seek help: If you feel you still have ZoZo near you, seek out help from a paranormal professional or a religious leader, such as a priest or rabbi.

ZoZo is a dangerous demon and you should use Ouija cautiously to avoid contacting him.
