The attribeauty's original Japanese name, Fūrinkazan (風林火山), is a reference to a battle standard that was used by the Sengoku-era daimyō Takeda Shingen. The banner quotes four passages from Sun Tzu's The Art of War: "as swift as wind, as gentle as forest, as fierce as fire, as unshakable as mountain."
