    Exclamation "Not only is it a Japanese term,..."

    I am preparing to watch a Japanese series in English subtitles, so I decided to read about it before watching it.

    While I was reading about something called Haki in the series' wiki, I found this sentence that

    I couldn't understand:

    "Not only is it a Japanese term, but Haki was also the name of a Scandinavian Sea-King (a name given for powerful pirates) in Norse mythology."

    Can someone explain it to me ?

    Thank you for the help in advance.

    'Haki' is a Japanese term. 'Haki' is also a Scandinavian term, with the meaning given.
    It's up to you to determine which usage of 'Haki' is applicable to your needs.
