Random Stuff  & Objects

Goku's Power Limiter Is the Golden Diadem on Goku's forehead.
It's more powerful than a normal limiter and can only be made by god powers.
When he's wearing it he appears human and is lucid. if the Diadem brakes or is taken off he reverts back to being the Seiten Taisei Son Goku where he looses all sense and just wants to kill everything.
 
Hakkai's Power Limiter These are three silver ear cuffs on Hakkai's left ear.

Where and how Hakkai got these limiters is still a mystery. He is wearing them when Gojyo finds him bleeding on the road.

 
Sanzo's Glasses Sanzo's Reading Glasses, these usual come out when he's got a paper, but seem to make more of an appearance the older he gets.

He originally had round (John Lennon) glasses. but somewhere along the journey he got some more stylish thin glasses that suite him a lot more ^_^

The only people in Saiyuki known to have golden eyes are Son Goku, Nataku and Homura (but only 1 of his eyes are gold)
 
Blood of a thousand Youkai There is a legend that if a human bathing in the blood of a thousand Youkai, they will become a Youkai's themselves.
