Trivia

  • The Shitennou (四天王), or the Four Heavenly Kings, are loosely based on the gods found in Buddhism. Unlike their anime counterparts, the live-action Shitennou are acknowledged as Endymion’s friends and guardians from the past.
  • Aside from Endymion, Dark Mercury and Mio, the Dark Kingdom names are inspired by minerals. An example is that Jadeite’s name is derived from a form of jade known as jadeite.
  • In Greek mythology, Endymion was a beautiful young man that Selene, the goddess of the moon, loved.
  • Mio’s surname “Kuroki” (黒木) literally translates to “black tree”. She took on the form of a dark, plant-like youma in the Special Act.
  • The location of the Dark Kingdom is a bit vague. It appeared to have caverns and a forest, though. The new Dark Kingdom, established by Queen Mio, was at an abandoned amusement park.
