Tintilinić (alternatively Pimpilić,[1] Tintilin or Malik) is a figure in Croatian folklore. He is typically described as a demon[2] child wearing a red cap,[3] soul of an unbaptised child which strolls trough houses at night.[4]

The legend is typically recorded on the Croatian coast, as well as among Burgenland Croats in Austria. The folk character has been popularized by Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić in her Tales of Long Ago, published in 1916.[5]
