This enemy is, in part at least, based on the kuchisake-onna ("slit-mouthed woman"), a figure appearing in Japanese ghost stories, possibly dating back to the Edo period. She was a woman who was mutilated by her husband and returns as a malicious spirit.
According to the legend, she walks around wearing a surgical mask. The woman will ask a potential victim: "Am I pretty?" If they answer no, she will kill them with a pair of shears, which she carries. If they answers yes, she will pull away the mask, revealing that her mouth is slit from ear to ear, and ask: "How about now?" If they answer no, she will cut her victim in half. If the person answers yes, then she will slit their mouth like hers. It's impossible to run away from her, as she will simply reappear in front of the victim.
Miss Murder is a stealthy and bloodthirsty killer who has the ability to move between dimensions. The wicked demon will suddenly tear through the fabric of reality, with a cold chuckle being the only warning, and use its large hedge-clippers to violently clip any unsuspecting victims. If not destroyed, she will simply go back inside and mend its portal, and soon reappear elsewhere.

- Her name may be a play on "mass murder", a crime that involves the killing of more than four people in a short period of time, usually in a single location.
- The name could also have been inspired by the 2006 single "Miss Murder" by American rock band AFI, which precedes Order of Ecclesia for two years. While this is mere speculation, Konami is known for frequently including homages to rock music in their games.
