About[edit | edit source]

The greatest of the Shikigami spirits, Dai Tengu can only be summoned and controlled by those who have undergone extreme ascetic training.

It is first seen when Asakura Yoh was fighting his ancestor Asakura Yohken as a part of his training in hell, and it is revealed by Matamune to be the Shikigami with which Yohken defeated Patch Hao.

After Tamamura Tamao trained with the spirit of Yohken, during her high school years, she inherited the spirit and gained the strength to control it.[2] She has been seen using it to scare both her employees and Asakura Hana.[3]
