    Does anyone know of any novels or other media where a character has buddhist powers?
    I've only seen examples such as netero from hxh with his type-100 guanyin bodhisattva, hashirama from naruto, that buddhist from WoC and a Chinese novel called repair the buddha.
    Anyone have anything else?

    Okay so this probably isn't what you're looking for, but I vaguely remember the protagonist from Womanizing Mage summoning a multi-armed golden figure to attack a tentacle monster, that later turned out to be a dragon. I dropped the series shortly after so I don't really know if he uses the ability a lot, or even if he has similar powers. Honestly I think he mainly uses elemental magic' fire-water, earth-wind, light-dark, shit like that.

    What are Buddhist Powers even supposed to be anyway?

    Gourmet of Another World: MC runs into some Buddhist monks

    Legend of the Great Saint: MC's sidekick learns some Buddha related scriptures

    Peerless Martial God: ... I am sure our MC ran into someone, something Buddhaxxx

    Invincible: not really sure if the MC doesn't learn something related to Buddha from one of the gazillion treasures he finds ...

    ... and a lot of Chinese novels have some 'Buddha's palm' move etc. ...

    Manifestations of buddhist statues, golden lotus, bodhisattvas, demon slaying scriptures and chanting

    Monks are also welcomed

    Shaman King has a lot of Buddhist stuff later on in the manga. I also remember the author wrote several other manga with primary Buddhist themes.

    I don't know what buddhist powers are...but doesn't The King’s Avatar have a lot of buddhist sounding moves?

    Or you can just watch Kung Fu Hustle. That's the most buddhist movie I've ever watched....but I only remember it for the comedy though.

    Emperors Domination, the MC has Buddhist powers. It ain't his main ability to fight with and he only uses them for like an arc. But he does have them.

    Cultivation Chat Group - mc has affinity with Buddhism but desperately tries to be Taoist. That said buhddism is not a focus of the story so not much screen time.
