This creature can be evoked to work with a human under its own terms. Somehow, a Tuyul is like an animal, so it needs to be treated as such. In order to foster a closer relationship with this creature, the owner should give it a cup of milk every morning, some toys, clothing, sweets and biscuits. Some also smear a few drops the owner’s own blood to the Tuyul statue. A person who owns a Tuyul uses it mainly to steal things from other people, or to do mischief. According to a well-known superstition, if money or jewelry keeps disappearing mysteriously from your house, a Tuyul might be responsible. One way to ward off a Tuyul is to place some needles under your money, for Tuyul are afraid of being hurt by needles. According to Javanese mythology, the creature is believed to be kept by a person practicing pesugihan Tuyul black magic. Pesugihan is derived from Javanese word sugih means "rich". It is a kind of magic to help people to become rich instantly, but in exchange he or she must perform some rituals or offering tumbal (sacrifice something) to keep the Tuyul happy. A Tuyul can be kept for an instant financial gain, but in exchange a female member of the family must allow it to breastfeed from her, sucking blood instead of milk. .
