The Fudou Raimeiken is known to have been sealed away by the Enma Clan for generations, due to Fudou Myouou's uncontrollable power.

It is later obtained by Touma in the 4th movie. He is able to possession summon Fudou Myouou by stabbing the sword into his Yo-kai Watch Ogre.

In the Shadowside series, Touma continues to use this occasionally to win battles, like in episode 5 and episode 10. It's stolen by Haruya in episode 12, but recovered later in episode 14. In said episode, Fukurou stabs himself in the wrist with it, turning himself into Fudou Myouou Ja.

In episode 13, after the Fudou Raimeiken has been stolen by Haruya, Touma and the others set out to find this one. However, Suzaku no longer has it, and thus doesn't appear in the form of a Kenbumajin, but a Genjuu instead.

During Fudou Myouou's battle with Jingeki, it's shown that Haruya's underling Ganryuu Shimanouchi previously wielded the Ashura Gouenmaru.
