  • Mood:


meaning: domination, rule

覇気 == haki == (noun) ambition, aspiration
覇者 == hasha == (noun) supreme ruler, champion, title holder

Complicated etymology; current meanings are borrowed. Top radical is 'west' (西). Bottom left radical is 'leather' (革). Bottom right radical is the usual radical version of 'flesh/of the body' (肉). Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Bodies in westerns dominated by leather.'
