Saiyuki Numbering System
Favored by the lazy, the l33t, or the just plain geeky, the numbering system in Saiyuki is often used in place of actual names. It is based on the phonetics of the character names.
3 - Sanzo ('San' is 3 in Japanese.)
5 - Gojyo ('Go' is 5 in Japanese.)
8 - Hakkai ('Hachi' is 8 in Japanese)
9 - Goku ('Ku' is 9 in Japanese.)
Hence 38 implies a relationship between Sanzo and Hakkai, while 85 implies a relationship between Gojyo and Hakkai, etc.
