  • In German, the name Zweihänder translates to "two-handed", as the weapon was usually between five to six feet (roughly one and a half to two meters) long and was heavy given its size, however everyone in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia wields the sword one-handed due to the one seen in said game being much smaller than it's real life counterpart. It was also primarily used against pikes, in bodyguard settings, and rarely against infantry.
