Vyaktarūpin (व्यक्तरूपिन्) refers to “one having a manifest form”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.5.1 (“Description of Tripura—the three cities”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā said to the sons of Tāraka-Asura: “O Asuras, there cannot be invariable indestructibility. Please desist from asking for it. Seek some other boon whatever you wish. O Asuras, a creature is born, dies and will be born surely. But no one will be free from old age or death in this world. Except Śiva (khaṇḍaparaśu) the destroyer of Death, and Viṣṇu all else are mortals. These two are the supervisers of virtue and evil and have manifest (vyaktarūpin) and unmanifest forms. [...]”.
