Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name of Sakya's Material Card in the Japanese and Eternal Punishment English versions, "Yuiga Dokuson" (唯我独尊) is part of the first phrase he ever spoke when he just had been born. The whole phrase is "天上天下 唯我為尊 三界皆苦 吾當安之" which can be loosely translated as "above the heaven and below the heaven, I am the only one of utmost dignity. Adversity plagues the Trailokya (three realms), I shall be their savior."
