The Juji Shuriken (十字手裏剣, Jūji Shuriken?, lit. Cross Shuriken), also known as the 4-Point Shuriken, is a recurring weapon in the Final Fantasy series. Initially the primary weapon of Yuffie Kisaragi from Final Fantasy VII, it also makes appearances in Dissidia Final Fantasy sub-series, as well as in Final Fantasy XI. Iconic to Yuffie, the large shuriken has appeared as her weapon in several games and movies. It was originally chosen as her weapon because in previous Final Fantasy games, the shuriken was an especially powerful weapon for the ninja job.
