|~ Yokai Tengu's final words before his death.|
Yokai Tengu is a flute-themed Yokai and a villain in Shuriken Sentai Ninninger.
Tengu was created when Raizo Gabi infected a clarinet via a corrupted Sealing Shuriken in order to lure AkaNinger to finish their fight. As the Ninngers arrived, Tengu expected AkaNinger's arrival, not knowing he is sitting in for a test makeup, thus ordered the Hitokarages to attack the rest of them. Raizo Gabi appears and easily incapacitate them before taking ShiroNinger as a hostage in his pocket dimension.
After finishing his midterm test, Takaharu rushed to Yokai Tengu and Fuuka was freed, with Raizo challenged him into Tengu's pocket dimension. Fuuka was joined by her cousins as they transform and fought the Yokai. After an aerial combat, Tengu's shadow was pinned by Shiro Ninger for MomoNinger and AoNinger to finish him and free AkaNinger. After outnumbered by the Ninningers, as well as losing one of his horns, Kyuemon Izayoi spirited him away and grow Tengu into a giant. Summoning the Otomo Nin, they formed into Shurikenjin before killing Tengu as Shurikenjin Paon.
Tengu was among the Yokai the Igasaki Ninningers noted to Kinji Takigawa they had destroyed prior to his arrival, making him displeased that he didn't have the chance to defeat them personally as StarNinger.
