Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Blocking involves pulling out the weapon with the blade still sheathed (similar to the blocking stance for normal longsword weapons). The actual blocking animation involves parrying with both the blade and the sheathe separately.
  • The word "Katana (刀)" refers to both the sword and the style in which it is wielded. In comparison to the similar "Tachi (太刀)", the Katana typically has a shallower curve and is worn on the belt with cutting edge facing up whereas the former has a deeper curve and is hung from a cord on the belt with cutting edge facing down. There are, however, exceptions.
  • A Nikana equipped with the Mod TT 20px.pngTranquil Cleave stance is highly reminiscent of Iaido styles, where the sword is quickly pulled from its scabbard to cut an enemy, cleaned of blood, then sheathed again, often in two or three fluid motions. The Mod TT 20px.pngDecisive Judgement stance is similar to some Kenjutsu fighting styles which draw the sword and use it with both hands.
  • Spelling Nikana backwards will result in Anakin, a reference to the Star Wars antagonist Darth Vader, who is also known as Anakin Skywalker. This was revealed as intentional in Devstream 107.
