Its means 'scary'. It's simple. It's not kawaii, meaning 'cute', it's 'SCARY'.
And it isn't a mispelling, either. In Japanese, they use syllables, so there's that extra 'ee' sound at the end. DEAL WITH IT. D:<

Similar to kawaii kowaii (pronounced "co-why-e") if said in japaneese means "freaky" and can misheard and people may think you're calling them Kawaii(cute in japaneese) or they may not know what kowaii means.

Common misspelling of "Kowai" which means scary/creepy. Most certainly caused by familiarity with words like "Kawaii" which means cute, or "Hawaii" which means Hawaii.

"Kowaii" is the improper romanization of the Japanese word "kawaii", which means "cute."
