The Shitennou (四天王 or Shiten'nō), which translate as the "Four Heavenly Kings", are a set of gods who govern the cardinal directions in the Buddhist Religion.
Spelling and Pronounciation
The Shitennou are commonly misspelled as the "Shitenou", due to the second "n" in their name being omitted by either sheer mistake or due to the different Kanji writing in other languages.
The Shitennou are pronounciated as "Shiten no", due to the Japanese "ō" or "ou" being pronounciated as a drawn out "o".
What happened to Marubasu?
Despite what it seems like, Marubasu from Vajura Fightis not a member of the Shitennou! The game features him as major villain that is later reused as a minor foe in the manga, where he becomes a Hyouijuu that is easily dispatched by Great Demon God Zenki. The only affiliation Marubasu has to the Shitennou is, that he gets transformed by the Hyouinomi, that were sent out by the Inugami.
