This is a common way to say demon, fiend, evil spirit, devil, or Satan in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.
This is a strange choice for a wall scroll, so consider this entry for reference only.
This Chinese version of demon comes from the ancient Sanskrit word raksha, raksasa (rākṣasa), raksas (rakṣas), or raksasi (rākṣasī).
This title regards malignant spirits, demons. These demons are described in ancient texts as terrifying, with black bodies, red hair, green eyes, and as devourers of men.
FYI: Sometimes the second character is written in the form shown to the right.
This means demon in Chinese, and perhaps slanted towards ghost in Japanese.
This demon title comes from the ancient Sanskrit word Asura. This is often used in Buddhism when describing various demons. Sometime defined as "Fighting and battling giant demon".
In the context of Buddhism: This title originally meant a spirit, spirits, or even the gods (perhaps before 1700 years ago). It now generally indicates titanic demons, enemies of the gods, with whom, especially Indra, they wage constant war. They are defined as "not devas", and "ugly", and "without wine". There are four classes of asuras, separated according to their manner of rebirth. They can be egg-born, womb-born, transformation-born, and spawn- or water-born. Their abode is in the ocean, north of Sumeru, but certain of the weaker dwell in a western mountain cave. They have realms, rulers, and palaces, as have the devas.
In terms of power, Asuras rank above humans but below most of the other deities. They live in the area near the coastal foot of Mount Sumeru (on the northern side). Their domain is partially or wholly in the ocean.
This word can mean ghost, ogre, demon, or "spirit of a deceased person", in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.
In some context, it can also mean sly, crafty, ogre-like person (i.e. fierce, relentless, merciless, etc.)
This can also be the "ghost" constellation (one of the 28 mansions in Chinese folklore).
An extended list of meanings includes: departed; dead; a disembodied spirit; dead person; evil being; hungry ghost.
This is an unusual title that can be translated two ways. The most common is probably "daredevil warrior". However, the first character means demon, ghost, or soul of the departed. Therefore, it can kind of mean soul of a warrior, or demon warrior.
This title is Japanese only, and should not be used if your audience is Chinese.
This is the Japanese title for a fallen angel.
This can also refer to a demon or Satan.
This Japanese word means Devil, Demon, or Satan. This is also the English/Japanese title for a character in Street Fighter.
This Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja word can be defined as devil, ghost, apparition, phantom, spectre, specter, demon, monster, or goblin.
This is the title Inuyasha or Inu Yasha, a fictional character meaning "dog demon" from Japanese Manga. Also known by Manga-lovers in China.
This is the Japanese title for Tengu, which roughly translates as, "heavenly dog".
Tengu are a type of legendary creature found in Japanese folk religion and are also considered a type of Shinto god (kami) or yōkai (supernatural beings).
The origin is Chinese, though this term is seldom used in Chinese any more. It was a dog-like Chinese demon (Tiangou)
Although the title contains the word "dog", the tengu are often depicted with human and bird-like characteristics. Sometimes they have large noses or beaks like birds.

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.
There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.
Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.
The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
