To become a Samurai, a Locker Ball — a crystal star left behind by Fudo Myo-o — is needed. The Locker Ball has a small blade in it, and if a sufficiently courageous individual uses this blade to commit seppuku, there's a chance their body will transform into a Key (
A Samurai's cybernetic body is endowed with miraculous regenerative powers, allowing them to rapidly heal nearly any injury, though certain techniques and weapons may impede this process. This allows them to perform feats such as reattaching severed limbs or regrowing them outright. They can also exist in otherwise dangerous environments, including the vacuum of space. It's been noted that the speed of regeneration is not uniform, so Samurai heal at different rates.
Adept Samurai are able to temporarily conjure a spiritual incarnation of their samurai soul by stabilizing the density of their H-Particles to a value close to zero. They can project this incarnation through space to traverse tremendous distances and engage in combat without risking damage to their actual physical form.
Samurai are immortal so long as they retain the will to fight, allowing them to survive otherwise fatal injuries and continue to do battle. However, should their courage falter and they accept defeat, the warrior god Fudo Myo-o will forsake them and they will succumb to their injuries, with their body quickly dispersing back into a Locker Ball.

- Most samurai train in the style of one of five schools: the Kongo-Yasha, Ususuma, Gozanze, Daiitoku, and Gundari styles.
