The site zisea likes to give a two-part component breakdown of every character.

One of their classifications comes with a (卐) next to it.

For instance:

is split up like:

两分字元:耳(卐) 攵

is split up like:

两分字元:厂(卐) 殳

is split up like:

两分字元:十(卐) 木

The entry for the character itself doesn't allude to this usage:



What does "(卐)" as part of 两分字元 mean?

  • 卍 and 卐 are two different character.

On http://zisea.com/zslf.htm# you can see this:


So it is just a "symbol" used on the site to represent parts that are hard to identify.

It is not universal.

  • Also it looks like it may only stand for one stroke: 【卐】【1画】.
