Eight of the Taiwanese folklore are the police force of gods, specializing in arresting demons and ghosts to protect people's safe lives. Sitting on the bombs means that the Ba Jia Jiang will be in the midst of the gunpowder fire, and they will be bombarded by firecrackers without any physical injuries as if the gods descended to the earth. Their behavior is to prove that God is different from the deification of mortals.
