Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Ash Prime, compared to AshIcon272.png Ash:
    • Higher Shields (125/375 vs. 100/300)
    • Higher Armor (175 vs. 100)
    • Higher Sprint Speed (1.2 vs. 1.15)
    • Different Polarities (Madurai Pol.svgMadurai Pol.svgNaramon Pol.svg vs. Madurai Pol.svgMadurai Pol.svg)
  • As a Prime Warframe, Ash Prime possesses a special passive ability where contact with an Orokin Void Death Orb will make them release an energy pulse that grants 250 Energy to all nearby allies. This effect can only occur once per Death Orb and can occur even if the Death Orb has been previously destroyed.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Ash Prime's helmet could be loosely based on the traditional Kabuto Samurai helmet and shows certain aspects of other Samurai Helmets like the oversized chin guard.
  • The ponytail on the Ash Prime helmet is somewhat reminiscent of the ponytail in Ash's original concept art.
    • This "ponytail" was originally intended to be included in his final design, however, cloth physics at the time did not permit it.
  • In the Codex, Ash Prime's arm blades are mounted underneath the wrist; in-game, however, the blades are positioned above his wrists much like the normal Ash.
  • Ash Prime's ability features are energy ribbons that emerge from Ash Prime when he appears out of SmokeScreen130xDark.png Smoke Screen and when he reaches his destination from Teleport130xDark.png Teleport.
  • Ash Prime has Orokin writing on his torso that says "Tenno Model 24N - Serial 147H".
  • Ash Prime's Arsenal image shows him holding the VectisPrime.png Vectis Prime as a lefty. Although this may be unintentional, it could hint to Ash Prime being ambidextrous, hence why he is equally efficient with both arm blades.
  • A fully built Ash Prime was given for watching TennoCon 2018 on WARFRAME's Twitch with a Twitch-linked account for 30 consecutive minutes, or were in attendance to TennoCon 2018, on July 7th, 2018.[1]
    • Due to server issues that prevented players from watching the livestream, DE gave away a free Ash Prime to anybody with a Twitched-linked account who logged into WARFRAME between July 3rd and July 10th, 2018.[2]
