If a Bushi commits Seppuku and is accepted by Fudo Myo-o, their body will transform into two objects; a Soul ( (たましい) Tamashii?) and a Key ( (かぎ) Kagi?).​ After that, the Key and the Soul are spontaneously assembled from the Locker Ball[1]​. The Locker Ball forms a new robotic body and a new Samurai is born with a Threefold Body.[2]

The Samurai Soul represents a rod that splits ( () Tatsu?, lit. to cut off) objects in two, the opposite to a Samurai Key ( (さむらい) (かぎ) Samurai no Kagi?) which represents a rope that binds ( (つな) Tsunagu?, lit. to tie/connect) one object to another.[3]

Some Samurai may have more Samurai Souls within themselves than their own like Ryu and Benkei while others have Souls around your body like Ata, Mujin and Future Hachimaru.[4][5]

Abilities and Powers

Weapon

  • The Samurai can take their Samurai Soul from their body in the form of a orb and attach it to a Handle Bone to create a blade to be used in combat. The ​Samurai Soul Blade ( (さむらい) (たましい) (かたな) Samurai Tamashī no Katana?)is the Samurai true weapon.[6] While many Samurai form a sword from their Soul, they can be shaped into other weapons like scythes, axes, spears and tridents.

Incarnation

  • 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.[7]

Medical Device

  • Samurai Soul in conjunction with a Key Holder can be used as a medical device.[8]
