Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Every successful hit with the Hirudo will return 5% of damage dealt to the enemy as health to the player.
  • Each successful hit also increases the player's max health by 5%, referred to as Invigorated buff.
    • The health bonus lasts for 5 seconds, which refreshes every time the player lands another hit while the buff is active.
    • The Invigorated buff can stack up to 5 times, for a maximum of 25% additional health bonus.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Hirudo's name appears to be a bilingual pun in both Latin and Japanese;
    • Hirudo is the Latin word for "leech".
      • Similarly, leeches make up the subclass Hirudinea in their phylogenic classification.
    • Its name may also be a portmanteau of the Japanese words Hiru (蛭)which also means "leech", and Do (道, which may also be read separately as Michi), which can mean "way" or more loosely "doctrine", and can be found in the names of some Japanese martial arts (e.g. KendoJudo).
