Some websites translate Hana Taaka Daka as “Long Nosed Goblin.” If you want to consider a tengu (a creature of Japanese folklore) as such that’s fine, but when I look at him I think of something else altogether — Wooldoor Jebediah Sockbat from Drawn Together! Regardless of what you think when you see the protagonist, this game is full of mythological Japanese characters like kitsunes and tanookis which you may at least have SOME familiarity with thanks to shows like Inuyasha and games like SMB3!
