Taken from Wikipedia.org:
A fitting name for a youkai of his stature. Sesshoumaru is fully aware of his powerful status, and makes sure that others know that he is far superior to them in every way. He regards himself highly, addressing himself as kono Sesshoumaru, which translates to something like "I, Sesshoumaru." Known as "a demon among demons," his brutal reputation is feared throughout the lands, and enemies and commoners alike are wise to address Sesshoumaru with the proper -sama suffix.
