Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A Guandao (more properly referred to a yanyuedao (偃月刀) – "reclining moon blade") is a type of Chinese pole weapon used in some forms of Chinese martial arts, most notably Shaolin Kung Fu. The name is derived from Guan Yu (關羽), a famed general from the Three Kingdoms period of China who is said to have invented and wielded the guandao.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Despite being nearly the same size as Galatine o.png Galatine (Prime), the Guandao stretches out of the Foundry animation while the Galatine doesn't.
