Tengu

Tengu

Tengu - Youkai Watch

A popular tengu who controls the power of wind. Apparently all that power comes from his number-one fan.


Tengu is a bit demanding, as seen when asked Nate and Jibanyan if they knew Whisper, at which they bluntly answered 'no', implying he is somewhat able to impose fear.
Tengu is famous for his ability to control wind; he can create raging tornadoes with a simple swing of his leaf fan.

Yo-kai Medallium Bio: A popular tengu who controls the power of wind. Apparently all that power comes from his number-one fan.

True to his name, Tengu resembles a red-skinned tengu with white hair and a long nose. He wears a light gray robe with long sleeves, a green vest over it and brown hakama. He also wears one-toothed geta sandals and white tabi. He carries a leaf uchiwa.

TRIVIA
Tengu is based on a tengu, more precisely a daitengu (great tengu) or yamabushi tengu (warrior priest tengu). Strong, intelligent and cultured, but also territorial and proverbially proud ("tengu" is colloquially synonymous with "braggart, conceited person"), they're one of the most famous youkai species. Contrary to their bird-like kotengu underlings (see Nird#Trivia), daitengu appear as winged men with ruddy faces and long noses, wearing hermit garbs and tall tengu-geta (one-toothed wooden clogs). Their weapons of choice are Buddhist ringed staves, or leaf fans they can use to produce mighty gusts of wind.

As a side note, a tengu's nose is a hallmark of their pride, and the expression "to snap one's nose" (鼻を折る, hana wo oru) means to soundly humiliate someone. In fact, the Japanese title of the quest to befriend Tengu is "Snap Tengu's Nose" (天狗の鼻を折れ, Tengu no hana wo ore).
