This technique seems to be influenced by the Shinto kami, Ōkuninushi (大国主, Great Land Master). He was originally killed by his rivals after a wooden log, held open by a wedge, snapped shut on him, before being revived by his mother. Later, Ōkuninushi fell in love with the daughter of Susanoo and battled Susanoo himself before becoming the ruler of Izumo.
