This weapon has the second highest base damage in game, being beaten by the Blade of Ages by 350 damage.
This is a very odd weapon, as it has 0 range. When using this katana, the projectiles just float where they were shot at, acting like bombs. This makes it a not very practical primary katana, but it can see use in places where minions chase after you, such as Oryx’s Castle and the Abyss of Demons. Due to this weapon’s extraordinarily high damage, it can be used to output DPS exceeding that of an un-buffed Warrior with a T12 Sword of Acclaim, with the enemy’s defense essentially being irrelevant due to its high damage and low fire rate; however, this can be done only very situationally, due to the aforementioned issue with the projectiles lacking any kind of movement.
This katana is very useful for test chests as simply throwing on a dex ring and standing on top of it can smash through its health very quickly. Additionally, this weapon is useful for cracking a crystal, but be careful of the shotgun.
Another (arguably) amazing use for this weapon is in the Tomb of the Ancients, because the bosses just circle around (making it very easy to predict their movement). You can circle around in front of the boss’s pathway and have them run into your shots.
Other cases where this weapon would be nice are when you are fighting things that spawn (e.g. Snakepit Guard, Candyland bosses), chase (e.g. Ice Adept) or have otherwise predictable movement (e.g. the Twilight Archmage in its 3rd phase).
This weapon may be a reference to the “The Ninja Sword of Nowhere” in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon.
