goblin 👺

Get all creeped out with the Goblin emoji! This emoji depicts a terrifying Japanese Goblin by the name of Tengu. It has a long red face, eyes that can stare you down, an angry frown, and a downward curved mouth with teeth. Tengu are half-man, half-bird supernatural creatures from ancient Japanese folklore. They can fly, are master shape-shifters, and can cause temporary immobility in people, as well.

The Goblin emoji is called many things – It sometimes goes by the name of Japanese Goblin emoji, red devil emoji, and Japanese Mask emoji. The reason behind the last name is primarily because its face is often used as a scary Halloween mask.

This red tengu mask emoji is often used to evoke and denote evil, mischief, naughtiness, and anger. To add to that, in Japan, netizens use this emoji to shame someone who is conceited or arrogant. When they do this, they are comparing the person to a Tengu who is naturally mean and arrogant. They’re saying the person is as arrogant as a Tengu.

Lastly, since Tengu is a character who is half human and half avian, use this emoji if you’re feeling like half yourself and half of something else, or if you’ve got mixed feelings about something.

👺 Goblin is a fully-qualified emoji as part of Unicode 6.0 which was introduced in 2010.
