”Great Deities of the Four Seasons” is the main force in the military retainers battalion to aggrandize performing formation. They come out to collocate ”Four Great Generals” to perform great formation such as the Big Dipper Formation, the Four Gates Formation, the Eight Trigrams Formation, and the Five Directions Formation instead of the jurisdiction function the academia believed. The image of Great Deities of the Four Seasons could be both trace back the ancient image of Heralds of the Five Plagues (fivehold heads of the Plague Bureau), the Five Devils and derive from Great Emperors of the Five Blessings. Great Deities of the Four Seasons exteriorize the image of Great Emperors of the Five Blessings. Putative images and instruments of Heralds of the Five Plagues and Five Devils are also fitted into Great Deities of the Four Seasons' face-painting and ritual implements that are slightly changed to consist with attributions of the Five Phases theory. At present, the costume colors, face-painting, ritual tools of the Great Deities of the Four Seasons differ a great deal from troupe to troupe, partly because folklorists incorrectly relayed an erroneous message. Different rank and the directions are related to the location of the temple and the Five Phases theory. Due to different locations of the temples, troupes adjust the rank and direction of Great Deities of the Four Seasons to correspond comparatively to the locations of the temples and the Five Phases theory.
