Samurai were the military nobility of pre-industrial Japan; "those who serve in close attendance to the nobility." Philosophies of Buddhism and Zen, and Confucianism and Shinto, influenced the samurai culture. Zen to calm one's mind. Buddhist reincarnation to abandon torture and needless killing, Confucianism to stress the loyalty that a samurai was required to show his lord. Samurais describe themselves as followers of "The Way of the Warrior". Samurai teachings can still be found today.

Japanese samurai helmet and armor. I find it really interesting that the majority of images with samaurais, even artwork, tends to potray these warriors with their faces masked. Is that then the ideal that anyone can acheive this glory? Does that explain why Noboru is so upset that Ryuiji doesn't pursue his glory even though he could? That he gave up the ability to don this hero costume?
