Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Prova shakes the screen violently while blocking, which may be disorienting. This same oddity is shared with the DEFragor.png Fragor and the DEScindo.png Scindo.
  • The Prova is a Machete.png Machete.
  • Unlike the VandalElectroProd.png Prova Vandal, the regular Prova does not have a guaranteed Electricity b.png Electricity procs on its slam attack, instead basing it off the weapon's status chance with a radial knockdown occurring the rest of the time.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • On Jump attacks, the Prova releases six small streams of electricity that each travel outward lead by a sparking orb. This purely cosmetic effect is not shared with other pure Electricity b.png Electricity type melee weapons like the Plasma.png Plasma SwordLecta.png Lecta and Corpuspolearm.png Serro. This effect however is shared with the DEAmphis.png Amphis, which only deals Electricity b.png Electricity status proc on its jump attack.
  • Prova is Italian for "evidence" or "proof", which in turn is derived from its Latin equivalent proba.
  • John Prodman in The Index wields a Prova as his signature weapon.
