Fudo Myoo's right hand holds the Sankoken (三鈷剣), or the Kurikara Sword (倶利伽羅剣), a blade said to disperse evil and cut away peoples' worldly desires. In the left hand, it holds a snare which is said to be used to raise and rescue those who are bound up by their worldly desires. The Fudo Myoo has a fierce facial expression. Its names indicate its status as an unwavering guardian that make enemies yield. The anecdote that Shingen Takeda created the Takeda Fudoson as a Fudo Myoo modeled after himself is famous.
