  • It has been implied that all Kenbumajin have Genjuu forms.
  • The Gen'ou ("Gen-king") of the Genjuu had provided the Youseiken to the 5 of the Genjuu, thus granting them their Kenbumajin forms.
  • Douketsu formally wielded Ashura's Youseiken, so it was assumed that he was its wielder until Ashura's existence was revealed.
