This wakizashi has an odd firing pattern where it summons two “waves” of shots in the direction it’s being aimed in, which then fly towards the player.

While this waki fires twice as many shots as tiered wakis, its low base damage and the wide spread of the shots make its damage considerably lower than other top-tiered options. However, it is the only ability that can both pierce through enemies and obstacles and ignore the defense of its targets. Much like the Wakizashi of Crossing Fires, the shots from this ability also come from both the right and left side.

However, one of the main standout points about this waki is that while its cast range is still 3 tiles, the range its shots cover is an extended 9.6. Combined with its wide spread and the fact that the shots come from the direction of casting instead of from the side (letting it see more use in constrained areas), this waki is arguably the safest one in the game. As such, it sees the most use on enemies that either have high defense that renders conventional wakis ineffective, or against foes that are too dangerous to approach.

Note that its projectiles are internally referred to as “Wakizashi Pink” despite not being pink. It has been referred to as “Wakizashi Pink” because of its old sprites.

Before Patch X.33.1.0 (May 2020), this item had a Feed Power of 500.
