Pratāpin (प्रतापिन्) (Cf. Supratāpin) refers to “one who is powerful”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.14 (“The Birth of Tāraka and Vajrāṅga”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “O sage, the penance was completed by Diti who performed it with faith. Thereafter from him she conceived and delivered of a son. That son of Diti named Vajrāṅga (of adamantine limbs) was on a par with the gods. Befitting his name, his body was strong and powerful even from his very birth [i.e., su-pratāpin-udbhava]. At the bidding of his mother, he immediately abducted Indra, the lord of gods, the other gods and punished them in various ways. [...]”.
