    Abstract: An airbag device includes an airbag. A passenger protection portion of the airbag has a frontal collision restraint surface, an oblique collision restraint surface, and a restraint recess portion. The airbag has a recess portion tether that couples a tip side of a recess of the restraint recess portion and a front end side of the airbag to each other, and at least one longitudinal tether that couples the front end side of the airbag and a recess portion-side region that is located on the restraint recess portion side with respect to a center of the frontal collision restraint surface in a lateral direction to each other, inside the airbag. The frontal collision restraint surface has at least two protruding surfaces that are configured to protrude backward, due to the longitudinal tether. The at least two protruding surfaces are arranged in alignment in the lateral direction.
