The archetype is centered around protecting your non-Xyz "Bujin" Beast-Warriors with the effects of "Bujingi" monsters and using its own effect to maintain advantage. For example "Bujingi Turtle" and "Bujingi Crane" protect "Yamato" from card effects that target and monsters with higher ATK, respectively, while "Bujingi Quilin" destroys any other face-up threats, paving the way for the Xyz Summon of their main offensive threats, "Bujintei Susanowo" and "Bujintei Kagutsuchi".
Several of the "Bujingis" appear to be based on the ten treasures known as the Tokusa no Kandakara ("10 varieties of the god’s treasure") which are enshrined at Isonokami Shrine. They were holy items given to Nigihayahi, an ancestor of the Mononobe clan, by Amaterasu and brought to earth when she descended from Heaven. These treasures were essentially magical items that could be used in rituals for the purpose of exorcism or purification.
Every "Bujin" that forms part of "Bujintei Susanowo" has light orange energy, every "Bujin" that forms part of "Bujintei Kagutsuchi" has light blue energy, and every "Bujin" that forms part of "Bujintei Tsukuyomi has bright yellow energy. The TCG exclusive ones, Warg and Raven, are black.
The Beast-Warrior-Type "Bujin" are the main field fighters, while Beast-Type "Bujin", except "Wolf" and "Warg", support from the Graveyard and Winged Beast-Type "Bujin" support from the hand. Bujingi Warg, on the other hand, supports from the field, like Wolf.
