Concept art of Genji Blade for Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy.

A beloved item once owned by a man said to be a collector of weapons who fought against heroes in various worlds. From its name, it is assumed to be related to the legendary Genji clan, and is said to have a cutting edge so sharp it can cut any lesser weapons right in two. If one were able to defeat this mysterious man who deeply admires the heroes he faces, this blade might very well find itself a new owner.

Genji Blade (源氏の刀, Genji no Katana?), also known as Genjito, Genji Katana or Minamoto's Katana, is a recurring weapon in the series. It is part of Genji equipment, and thus at times associated with Gilgamesh.

The surname of Genji refers to the onyomi reading of the Minamoto Clan. Minamoto was a surname commonly bestowed on the children of the Emperor who were not eligible for the throne. According to history and legend, they were most active in the days of the late Heian era, and were samurai who became known as the fighters of evil and keepers of peace. The time was said to have been fraught with disorder and anarchy. Many future samurai claim lineage from the clan, including Miyamoto Musashi and Tokugawa Ieyasu who were subject of literary discourse from The Tale of Genji, which follows royal figures, to The Tale of the Heike, focusing on the major figures and the events of the Genpei War.

Genji is also a short period in Japanese history, lasting only a single year from 1864–1865.

As their standing remained legendary throughout, so did the weapons the clan wielded. Their most famous swords were said to be the Dojigiri Yasutsuna, the tachi once wielded by Minamoto no Yorimitsu, said to have slain the infamous demon lord Shuten Doji; and the Ima no Tsurugi, a mystical blade of the famous Minamoto no Yoshitsune, said to have been gifted to him by the tengu of Mount Hiei who trained him in the martial and magical arts.
