I've recently encountered this problem on my Ubuntu 15.04 64 bit box. The setupcon command set the fonts to what I had set with dpkg-reconfigure console-setup. I added setupcon to my rc.local, but that left a gap where the font was still wrong (because rc.local is executed after the console is setup), so that wasn't good enough for me. So, I decided to go ...
I don't think the OpenBSD console supports fonts for multibyte encodings. In principle it might be possible to support them in relation to the recent drm(4) code, but I don't think anybody is working on that. You might want to ask on an OpenBSD list for an authoritative answer.

fc-match is the utility to use. For example, fc-match monospace will tell you the font used for monospace, and fc-match -s monospace will tell you fallback fonts as well, in order. The first font on the list will be what is used in most cases, and all fonts after are fallback fonts for missing glyphs.
The font in the image you supplied is the VGA font (I believe people refer to it as the VGA 437 font, but it's ambiguous; take a look at the wikipedia page.) This rendering is not something specific to Linux – it's your graphics card's rendition. Every graphics card I've used has used this particular rendering by default. I found a TTF clone of it here. The ...
See http://askubuntu.com/questions/630118/ and http://askubuntu.com/questions/328463/. This problem seems to be caused by a mismatch in the naming of fonts that console-setup expects vs what are in /usr/share/consolefonts/, and thus copied to /etc/console-setup/ when you pick a font to use (using dpkg-reconfigure console-setup). If you go to a console and ...
