Wait! Choushin War is how it was translated in the interview. Why are you calling it Choushin Contest?
Because “Choushin War” was a mistranslation. The three Choushin were in a contest to find a kami (god) higher then themselves and they set about to find this in their own unique ways. Tenchi was what they were looking for. As such, there was never a war between the three sisters.
Tenchi is a kami?
Yep. That is why he was not only able to generate his own Light Hawk Wings, but do material conversions with them.
What about Z? Is he also a kami?
No. Z is an anomaly created by the Choushin’s attempt to find a higher being than themselves. As such, his power is his own and with the ability to generate five LHW’s, he is very powerful.
