Mutsonokami[edit source]

Should we make article for Mutsonokami? When I was creating a page for it (red links are bad), the page says that it was redirect to the very same page a(I might be blind) and the only contributor was Xenomic. I think we should as it make appearance in more then two games (I was told some time ago when something makes appearance in three or more titles a page is for it is good).—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 23:00, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Current rule is four or more appearances or notability. Not many weapons qualify for notability however. It's only things like Cerberus -- character's signature weapons. JBed 23:04, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for clarifying it to me.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 23:16, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

I believe it's because I put it on a different page (slightly different spelling). You can still find it if you look in the Weapons template below. Xenomic 23:34, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Actually it is there with the very same spelling. Weird thingie.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 23:53, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Masamune is not a nodachi[edit source]

Well, a small correction about katana-nodachi confusions. Sephiroth's manliness sword is not a nodachi, judging from how he handles it, the shape of the blade, hilt, and grip, masamune is just an overly long katana, not a nodachi. thanks... --Erkaz 05:35, December 19, 2010 (UTC)

Sephiroth's Masamune[edit source]

Is it worth mentioning that Sephiroth's Masamune seems to alter its length in different games? I swear in Crisis Core it was quite short compared to Final Fantasy VII. Tia-Lewise 12:55, September 15, 2011 (UTC)

It's probably only because of the differences in art styles. Kappa the Imp 12:56, September 15, 2011 (UTC)
Just thought I'd ask! Tia-Lewise 12:57, September 15, 2011 (UTC)
Sephiroth's Masamune has its own article where this is mentioned.Keltainentoukokuu 16:22, September 15, 2011 (UTC)
Okay, no problem! :) 22:09, September 15, 2011 (UTC) (It's Tia-Lewise, I just can't be arsed signing in atm)

Decided this section could be less confusing & better worded. Also, katanas are often not the strongest swords in the games.[edit source]

To NEO Bahamut:

I did not write this part of the article to be elitist. I find it absurd that Final Fantasy puts Katana as its own series of weapon (and they ARE backswords). They are portrayed this way... for reasons that clearly evade me. And when I meant unmatched in cutting power I mean portrayed and as having unmatched cutting power, not stat wise. I also can't see much backing for things like blocking and parrying considering its construction and design compared with a double edged sword or Occidental swords.

The Chaos Blade, you know of it don't you?
