  • This stance's combo animations were first seen at Tennolive 2014.
  • Blind Justice is the third Nikana Stance, following Mod TT 20pxTranquil Cleave and Mod TT 20pxDecisive Judgement. It is the only one out of the three that is uncommon.
  • The name "Blind Justice" was confirmed by Geoff Crookes to be a nod to the fictional Japanese character Zatoichi, who was a blind swordsman best known for his use of the reverse-grip style of swordsmanship. The name of the first combo Zatōs Creed is a further reference to the name.
  • Like Mod TT 20pxDecisive Judgement, Blind Justice changes the weapon's grip during attacks, in this case using a single-hand reverse-grip style of holding the Nikana. Blind Justice is also the only stance that completely changes the weapon's animations, with unique movements for blocking, stealth attacks, counterattack finishers, wall attacks, and idle animations.
  • Unlike Mod TT 20pxTranquil Cleave and Mod TT 20pxDecisive Judgement, which portrays Frost performing the combo, Blind Justice shows BansheeIcon272 Banshee instead.
