Tenguriginal (Japanese: 烏天狗 Karasu Tengu) is a Rank S Wind-attribute Classic Yo-kai of the Charming tribe.

In Yo-kai Watch 3, Tenguriginal is one of the Yo-kai required to unlock Dandoodle.



Tenguriginal is a humanoid Yo-kai who has pale blue skin, dark blue hair tied with a white band into a low ponytail with its end resembling a crow's tail, round eyebrows and red eyes.

His outfit consists of a yellow Tokin cap with a white band under his jaw, a white Suzukake jacket with a red underrobe and wing-like sleeves that has sharp dark blue ends, a yellow Yui-gesa with 4 pompoms, purple hakama pants hold up by a red band, white tabi socks and a pair of dark brown single-stilted getas with red straps.

In his hand, he holds a grey shakujō staff with a large golden ring at the end, carrying 6 smaller golden rings and a red spirit-like spear top.



Tengu is the bitter and eternal rival of Tenguriginal as he wishes to put him in his place and prove he is the one true Tengu.

Karasu Tengu is based on the youkai of which his Japanese name is derived, which, for the most part, are the alternative name of daitengu (see Tengu#Origin), even though Karasu-tengu features more of the avian features of the tengu, and such, may feature beaks, an image that daitengu have long since shed from, due to humanizing the beak into their iconic giant nose.
