Appearances[edit | edit source]
The Hardedge is a weapon for Cloud. It can be bought in Junon (disc 1) and Gongaga (all discs) for 1,500 gil, and stolen from a SOLDIER:3rd during the visit to Shinra Headquarters. It has Attack power of 32, Hit rate of 96, Magic power of 6, and normal Materia growth with four Materia slots, two of them linked.
The blade has the kanji (一刀両断, Ittō ryōdan?, lit. one-bladed bisection) written on it, a Japanese term for "cutting into two with a single stroke".
The Hardedge is the strongest physical weapon for Cloud. It provides the Infinity's End ability that has slow buildup and high ATB cost, but tremendous burst damage. Its Magic Attack attribute, however, is significantly lower than most of Cloud's other weapons.
