I know Raiden is based on the god Raijin, but sadly my knowledge of Japanese religious gods and mythology is lacking compared to say, Greek and Roman mythology. Across the movies, Raiden is depicted as a wiseacre, a bit of a trickster, and kind of an ass even if it’s ultimately for the greater good. Is that fairly accurate to his portrayal in mythology, or the kind of god he is?
