The demons have played an important role in Japanese folklore. In the past without electricity or Internet, nights were dark and frightening, especially in the ancient cities.
Oni demons help to explain many natural phenomenon.
They are part of many rituals and rites.
Many Oni hang around placed of departure and divide, like city gates, rivers and bridges, crossroads or mountain passes.

The demons of the Buddhist hell are a special group, and are quite fearful in the imagination of humans.

A counterpart of Oni is the AKUMA 悪魔, translated as Devil (but a bit different from the Christian image of THE Devil (Teufel) or Satan.)
