History

Wano Country Arc

Sugamichi and Warazane carried Fujin and Raijin when the Orochi Oniwabanshu chased intruders in Orochi's castle.[1][3][4] Later, they appeared in Rasetsu Town when the Oniwabanshu was summoned to combat the rebels.[5] Sugamichi and his master Fujin pursued Roronoa Zoro and Kozuki Hiyori into the forest, but Fujin was defeated by Zoro.[6]

Trivia

  • In Japanese mythology, a giant catfish or namazu is said to live underground and cause earthquakes. In the 19th century art genre called namazu-e, the god Takemikazuchi was often depicted riding atop the catfish to restrain it.
  • Their names are likely derived from the Japanese poet Sugawara no Michizane. According to a legend, Michizane once used his sword to defeat a giant catfish blocking the road in Chikushino, which caused the catfish to turn into stone.
