Fuurinkazan (風林火山,Fūrinkazan?, lit. "Wind, Forest, Fire, and Mountain") is an elementary battle concept used by beginners in the field of puppetry that functions as a code or a vocalised command that lets its user adjust the nature of the magic energy, the amount of magic energy output, the type of magic art; the formation that which its user and its user's automaton attacks with whether if it is offence or defence, which its user transmits to its user's automaton. The command is issued in the form of: the nature (based off the Fuurinkazan; Suimei (吹鳴,Suimei?, lit. "Howling Wind"), Shinkan (森閑,Shinkan?, lit. "Silent Forest"), Kouen (光焔,Kōen?, lit. "Flaming Light") or Tenken (天嶮,Tenken?, lit. "Nature’s Ruggedness")) + number (magic energy output) + formation (offence or defence; Shou (衝,Shō?, lit. "Strike") or Ketsu (結,Ketsu?, lit. "Binding")). The command would look like for example: for strike; Tenken Kyuujuurokushou (天嶮九六衝,Tenken Kyūjūrokushō?, lit. "96th Strike: Nature’s Ruggedness") or for binding; Kouen Juuniketsu (光焔一二結,Kōen Jūniketsu?, lit. "12th Binding: Flaming Light").
Fuurinkazan (風林火山,Fūrinkazan?) was derived from the Fuurinkazan, the Japanese battle standard used by the famous daimyo of the Sengoku period in Japan, Takeda Shingen, which quoted the four phrases, "Let your rapidity be that of the wind, your silence that of the forest" (故其疾如風，其徐如林,故其疾如風，其徐如林?), "In raiding and plundering that of the fire, be immovable that of the mountain" (侵掠如火，不動如山,侵掠如火，不動如山?), from the ancient Chinese military treatise, "The Art of War" (孙子兵法,孙子兵法?), written by the Chinese high-ranking military general, strategist and tactician, Sun Tzu. It is the title of "Fuurinkazan" (風林火山,風林火山?), the Japanese novel written by the Japanese writer and poet, Yasushi Inoue, which popularised the four-character version; "as swift as the wind, as silent as the forest, as fierce as the fire and as immovable as the mountain" (風林火山,風林火山?), of the original set of phrases from the battle standard.
