tengu - KiKi KaiKai (Taito - arcade - 1986)
I’m sure it’s not what you’re looking for, but I always thought Tengu from the Dead or Alive games kinda looked like him:
UPDATE: final-boss points out that Mr. Karate from Art of Fighting and King of Fighters wears a tengu mask, so I suppose that’s a possibility.
blowing leaves - Abarenbou Tengu (KAZe - Famicom - 1990)
This is the original Japanese version of the horizontal shmup released in the West as Zombie Nation. The main difference is that your character in this version is a Tengu mask instead of a zombie samurai head.
