For fans of Martial Arts themes

Note: Souten is something like “Twin Heavens” but since it’s a form of martial arts, we’re leaving it in Japanese.

Note: 阿吽 is more Buddhism references (look up Om/Aun), for western folks it would be comparable to Alpha and Omega, making the Red and Blue Fusions something like “Armor Alpha” and “Armor Omega”.
