Man those are some blocky graphics.
As I said earlier in the post, there are many depictions of how the Oni were believed to be like. Where they where explained to cause natural disasters ,originally ghostly spirits working for the Devil in the belief system, to be giants that eat people.
If anything Bigfoot probably bears more of a resemblance to an Oni, since they are both big, probably very strong, bi-pedal, and bigfoots almost invisible in some cases.
Although I think big foot would beat the crap of human prey, then eating people, like how the giant versions of Oni were believed.
Added: Although Oni could be interpreted as western Demons, but more like Imps, Gargoyles, or lesser demons. As I stated earlier in the thread, Demon in japanese is "Akuma", so it really has no literary connection to the word "Oni". This possibly change some time, and became interchangeable in modern japan.
