Yo-kai Medallium Bio: A holy swordsman with a divine blade that cuts through evil like cheddar cheese. Could he bring about tasty world peace?
He looks like Sheen, but his hat is gold colored (along with the fire on it) with green beads underneath it. His scarf is red, the sword is sky blue, his pants are orange, and his sandals are yellow.
Gleam's Japanese name, Kusanagi, refers to the sword originally named Ame-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi ("Sword of the Gathering Clouds of Heaven"), which the warrior god Susanoo had carved out from the tail of the slain Yamata-no-Orochi (see Venoct#Trivia) and gifted to the goddess Amaterasu. It was later given to the legendary hero Yamato Takeru.
One day an enemy warlord lured the hero into a trap while he was hunting on an open grassland, launching a volley of fiery arrows that set it ablaze. Desperate, Yamato Takeru used the sword to cut a path through the burning grass, and in doing this he discovered it had the power to control the wind in the direction it was swung. With this newfound ability, he pushed the flames back against the warlord and turned the tides in his favour. In celebration of his victory, he renamed the sword Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi ("Grass-cutting Sword").
