Along with HA, he’s a spirit general who protects BUDDHA.
HANG can send laser beams from his nostrils, so was conscripted by Heaven to serve as a minder. Why BUDDHA should need such protection in Heaven makes one wonder.
But the images of HA and HANG are also used to deter vandals from desecrating shrines, presumably for fear of nasal lasers. Nasers?
