Images of Oni vary widely, but in general they are depicted as huge, horrible creatures with sharp claws, wild hair and long horns on their heads.
They look like people, but are depicted sometimes with inhumane characteristics, such as extra eyes or limbs.
Their fierce appearance is enhanced by the tiger skins that they usually wear and the iron clubs, tetsubo, they carry around.
This one is somewhat more friendly and plays a flute.
