Notes[]

  • Even though the weapon requires Oxium.png Oxium to construct, the Tonbo is quite inexpensive for a weapon exclusive to Clan Research, as most Clan Research-exclusive weapons typically require Forma2.png Forma or other rare resources such as ArgonCrystal.png Argon Crystals.
  • The ground slam has a chance to inflict a DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast proc.

Trivia[]

  • "Tonbo" (蜻蛉) is Japanese for "dragonfly".
    • The weapon's name is likely derived from the Tonbogiri (蜻蛉切), a spear also known as the "Dragonfly Cutting Spear", and was said to be wielded by Honda Tadakatsu. The spear derives its moniker from the myth that a dragonfly landed on its blade and was instantly cut in two.
  • The blade itself resembles those found on Bill polearms, though with significantly larger proportions.
  • At its initial release this weapon could not be researched in the Clan Dojo, this was fixed in Hotfix 15.15.0.1 (2015-02-18).
  • Listed as FlowerPowerPolearm in the game files.
