Origin
 
===Origin===
Shiftry are based on {{wp|tengu}}, who are known for their long noses, cruel tricks, ability to read minds, and for wielding a magical fan called a 羽団扇 ''hauchiwa'', known to have the power to stir great winds. The fact that they are known to live in and protect ancient forests and trees hint that they are likely based on 木葉天狗 ''konoha-tengu'' of ko-tengu. Shiftry also bears resemblance to a {{wp|nutcracker}}.
====Name origin====
Shiftry may be a combination of ''shifty'' (deceitful) and ''tree''.
