He was an expert hunter who swapped roles with his brother, Fire Flash. He borrowed his brother's magic fishhook but lost it in the sea. When retrieving the fish-hook from the seabottom, he met Toyo-Tama, daughter of the Dragon-King of the Sea, Watatsumi, and married her. He was given the magic jewels which gave him control of the tides.
