Nird (Japanese: ヨミテング Yomi Tengu) is a Rank B Wind-attribute Yo-kai of the Shady tribe.


Nird appears as a Tengu Yo-kai with red feathers and a yellow beak, and yellow eyes with black circles. He has bushy eyebrows that hang over his eyes, giving him a frowning look. He is dressed in a blue haori and white, baggy trousers, and tall one-toothed geta. He sits a squatting position and his face peers out from behind the olive-green book he's reading. A pair of wings stretches out from his back.

Nird is always reading and is said to hate noisy people.

As a Tengu he is capable of blowing powerful winds at his enemies, said to come from the underworld. He can also weaken healing powers.

His Japanese name, "Yomi Tengu", translates as "reading tengu" (Japanese: 読み天狗). Based on its underworld-themed techniques, it's likely also a pun on Yomi (Japanese: 黄泉), the land of the dead in Shintoism.

His English name, "Nird", is a corruption of the word nerd, but also is a portmanteau of nerd and bird.

His Spanish name, "Tengullón", is a combination of tengu and empollón (clever).


Nird is based on a tengu, a highly populated and diverse race of crow-like youkai. More specifically, they resemble the lower caste of tengu, called kotengu (small tengu) but sometimes also karasu-tengu (crow tengu) or konoha-tengu (foliage tengu). Kotengu are bird-like compared to their high-ranked brethren, which are instead humanoid (see Tengu#Trivia), though they wear the same hermit garbs and tall tengu-geta (one-toothed wooden clogs named after them). They're also sometimes less intelligent and dignified, but they still have their species' proverbial arrogance.
