From Wikipedia:

An oni (鬼) is a kind of yōkai, demon, orc, ogre, or troll in Japanese folklore. Oni are mostly known for their fierce and evil nature manifested in their propensity for murder and cannibalism. Notwithstanding their evil reputation, oni possess intriguingly complex aspects that cannot be brushed away simply as evil. They are typically portrayed as hulking figures with one or more horns growing out of their heads.[1] Stereotypically, they are conceived of as red, blue, black, yellow, or white-colored, wearing loincloths of tiger pelt, and carrying iron kanabō clubs.[1]A creature instills fear and danger from their grotesque outward appearance to their wild and strange behaviors and dangerous powers. Although Oni has been told as frightening creatures, they have become tamer in modern culture as people tell less scary stories.

From Touhou Wiki:

In Touhou Project, oni are jolly youkai who love to drink, feast, and compete with humans in any kind of contest, from simple physical fighting to drinking games.
