  • Reuknight's wisps are actually sentient shown by one of his unlockable victory poses.
  • His wisps may also be symbolism for him being made of Helmsman and Armsman. (Two Souls, two wisps)

  • There is a possible connection from Reuknight drowning in the first Yokai Watch movie and his debut in the anime having to do with swimming.
