  • The name "Hirume" comes from one of the solar goddess Amaterasu's many names, "Ōhirume-no-muchi-no-kami". This may make "Hirume" the first "female" Beast-Warrior-Type "Bujin".
    • "Hirume" (variously spelt 日孁, 日霊 or 日女) is an old compound that meant "sun girl" (as in hi "sun" and me "female"), as opposed to "Hiruko". The hiru part has been misconstrued as meaning "leech", especially in the kanji spelling of Hiruko (蛭子, literally "leech child/boy"). The notion of a "sun girl" also gave rise to the word 姫 (hime "princess"), as in "a girl descended from the solar goddess Amaterasu".
  • This monster appears in the artwork of "Bujincident".
  • The artworks of the 4 "Bujin" Beast-Warrior-Type monsters illustrate different times of day. The artwork of "Bujin Hirume" depicts either sunrise or the morning sun.
