    I think I remember someone telling me Kobushi is Japanese for "Little Warrior"...

    I believe the literal translation for "kobushi" means "fist" or "fist shaped". It's not a direct translation. I googled the two words together for you to see the results:

    Looks like there's a wave I just might skip in it's entirety.

    Scattorbrain is a scary name.

    Kobushi can be a fist or like Beastbot X said, "bushi" bit can be taken as "samurai". I don't think "ko" can be "small" in this case, though. But it can be "old/seasoned samurai".

    So far the only minicon I want is Razorclaw.

    "Ko", and "bushi" on their own can mean "little" and "warrior."

    Together, they mean "fist."

    And Monocle is the user-name of a Transformers fan. Although I doubt its intentional.
