Trivia[]

  • The Anku's design is inspired by the Paris.png Paris, in the same manner that the Redeemer.png Redeemer , DualRaza.png Dual Raza and Boltace.png Boltace are based off the designs of the DETigris.png Tigris, U10DesignCouncilTennoAR.png Soma and Boltor.png Boltor respectively.
  • The Anku is the first scythe that is built in the Clan Dojo.
  • When it was initially released, the Anku had a Madurai Pol.svg stance polarity, which did not match either stances available at the time. This was later corrected in Hotfix 16.7.1 (2015-06-04), giving the Anku its current Zenurik Pol.svg stance polarity.
  • The Anku's blade folds down into the handle when stowed away.
  • The Anku's name is likely a reference to two words;
    • Anku is the Quechuan word for flexible or elastic, which likely refers to the three strings that retract the Anku's blade when it is holstered.
    • Ankou is a personification of death in Breton and French folklore. He is usually depicted as a skeleton wearing a cloak and a large-brimmed hat, along with wielding a scythe.
