Final Fantasy Wiki

The Iga Blade is a ninja sword in Final Fantasy XII. In the original version, it is better than the Koga Blade due to its 1% advantage in combo rate. In the Zodiac versions, the weapons' main stats are equal, differing in their element, where Iga Blade is Water and Koga Blade is Earth. Despite this, the Iga Blade sells for more in the Zodiac versions, when it was of equal price before.

Its license costs 45 LP in the original and 120 LP in the Zodiac versions, where it can be used by the Shikari. It is not possible to unlock all ninja sword licenses in the same board in the Zodiac versions. The player could forgo Ninja Swords 1 as Iga and Koga Blade are stronger and often obtained even earlier than the weaker ninja swords, or the player could choose between Iga and Koga as they have the same stats apart from the element. Earth is a rarer element than Water, so the player may want to go with Koga.





Kōga-ryū and Iga-ryū were historical schools of ninjutsu that became one of the two most well-known ninja schools in Japan.
