Hinata's Katana (ヒナタの猛刀 Hinata no Mōtō, lit. Hinata's Fierce Katana) is a Katana that is introduced in Fire Emblem Fates. Eponymously named after Hinata, Hinata's Katana, like its Japanese name suggests, is modelled after the character's reckless, hotblooded personality, as its Might is doubled when its wielder initiates an attack at the cost of reducing their Strength and Skill post-battle.
Hinata's Katana is the sword equivalent of Subaki's Pike and Izana's Scroll. Like Izana's Scroll, Hinata's Katana cannot perform follow-up attacks, however, Izana's Scroll does not penalize the wielder's stats post-battle.
If foe initiates combat,
The katana (刀), was the go-to weapon for all samurai of Feudal Japan. Katanas are characterized by their curved, single edged blade.
- Appearance-wise, Hinata's Katana is a recolour of the Silver Katana, designed to match Hinata's colour scheme (purple, black). The parallelism between both katana is a rather fitting one, as they are B-ranked weapons that share the same post-battle stat drops.
