Tengu (天狗) are mythical creatures found in Japanese folklore.
Throughout the history of these folk tales and into modern storytelling, tengu have been depicted in many different forms. They are known for their mischievous nature and association with the elements.

Tengu always have wings and are commonly depicted as giant birds, most of which wear Japanese clothes.
They are nearly always as large as a person, walking upright and speaking.

The second most well-known depiction of the tengu is of creatures with red faces and very long, bulbous noses.
These are commonly seen as masks at Japanese festivals.

More modern stories have revamped the tengu to be even more human-like, but they may also be characterized by a single horn coming out of the top of their head.
