"As a Celestial noble, this was not my first time in the Royal Palace."
"I will create a new 'justice' for the Celestials."
After I finished speaking, the Grand Priest was drenched in sweat and he knelt next to me, shivering. It was as if he was terrified after listening to a secret that he shouldn't have heard. Then I smiled and deliberately asked the white lotus, "did I make myself clear?"
|今より、この世に裁きを下す||I shall deliver judgment upon this world!|
|あなたが何を思い、何を考えているか、私には手に取るようにわかる||I know everything that's on your mind right now.|

- The initial teaser silhouette for Taishakuten shown a 2019 shikigami recap video used a now scrapped design of him.
- A standee cutout of the scrapped design was also used at a "Vivo Game Center" × "iQOO" × "NetEase" game festival.
Interview with the Design Team
- Taishakuten's core setting took "opposing dualities" to the extreme: compassion in early story vs cruel mania as king; purity of appearance vs brutal actions; becoming the good of the world & bearing the evil of the world; main design element consisting of white lotuses for character that is full of sin, etc.
- Design notes: the unstained lotus growing from mud, reincarnation, the six paths of Samsara. Taishakuten appeared compassionate, but acted as a cruel ruler - emphasis on duality. The more insane his ideals and methods, the greater the need for purity and grace in his appearance. He bore so much sin, yet retained his purity of spirit.
- Taishakuten's lotuses early on had the abilities of purification, defense and mind reading. Later, they can create illusions, psychological control, and have offensive capabilities.
- As a young child Taishakuten sealed the true power of his Spiritual Entity until it was awakened by meeting Asura, and subsequent life-or-death situations.
- The eyes on Taishakuten's body are related to his Spiritual Entity, they are used to perceive others' thoughts and synthesize sense.
- Taishakuten is described as both "sincere and insane", however his heart had never changed throughout time.
- Taishakuten and Asura's relationship is described as "intimate friendship"; the missing parts of the two are precisely the strengths of each other, they reflect and complement one another.
