One of the Seven Gods of Fortune, patron of warriors and said to ward off disasters and evil. With his fierce look he sends evil running. Warriors blessed by this god take on the same fierce expression in battle.
Bishamonten has tanned skin with sharp teeth and two tusks jutting out of his mouth, has teal hair, wears red armor, nothing on his arms aside from some forearm protectors, green boots, a helmet with golden horns, and a halo of flames attached to his back. His main weapon of choice is a golden trident.
Bishamonten is based on the god of the same name, belonging to the shichifukujin (see Benzaiten#Origin).
He was originally known as Vaisravana, leader of the Four Heavenly Kings in Buddhism and in turn derived from Kubera in Hinduism. In Japanese culture, he is a god of warfare and national defense, patron of warriors and soldiers, who is also in charge of protecting shrines and places of worship across the country and punishing evildoers. He is typically portrayed in full armor, with a spear in one hand and a pagoda in the other, surrounded by a fiery halo.
