A samurái was a warrior of Japanese origin, dating as far back as Feudal Japan.
Toshio Eto, better known as The Samurái, studied many of the customs and culture related to the ancient samurái.
He was very familiar with their history and their duties as well, although his superhero career reflected an understanding of both the ancient and modern Japanese cultures.
One of the signature weapons of a Samurái was the katana, a special Japanese sword. Samurai had a katana that was an energy sword.
