Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Thunderbrand shares a resemblance to Amatsu, both of which are modeled after the Seven-Branched Sword or Shichishito.
  • Unlike the other Heroes' Relics, Thunderbrand can be used thirty times as opposed to twenty, likely because it functions as a brave weapon.
    • Additionally, Thunderbrand is the only Relic that is never given to the player as an event.
