The Hoe (クワ Kuwa) is a Club that is introduced in Fire Emblem Fates. A joke weapon that literally assumes the appearance of a traditional farming tool, the Hoe is viable for combat nevertheless, owing to the fact that it ignores terrain bonuses that specific map tiles are imbued with, alongside possessing a modest Critical rate.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
The kuwa is, apart from acting as a traditional farming tool, one of many weapons that are employed in Okinawan kobudō. Compared to garden-variety hoes, the kuwa's handle is designed to be thicker and shorter to fit the stature of the Okinawan natives. The kuwa's shape is classically a simple steel rectangle with a sharp leading edge.
