The Yoshimitsu is the fourth stage of five in the quest to obtain Kikou, the Ninja's Relic Weapon. In order to obtain Yoshimitsu, a player must obtain the third stage weapon (Rogetsu) and trade it along with an Attestation of Legerity and 61 Montiont Silverpieces to the Goblin Switchstix. Yoshimitsu's actual stats are as follows: a one-handed Katana usable only by level 75 and higher ninjas with weapon damage 42 and delay 227. In Dynamis, Yoshimitsu allows the player to use the relic Weapon Skill, Blade: Metsu. Yoshimitsu is in turn intended to be upgraded to the final stage, the Kikoku itself.
The Yoshimitsu are the Relic Weapons for Ninjas. The Unfinished Yoshimitsu are acquired and upgraded to the Yoshimitsu in the quest A Relic Reborn (Yoshimitsu), and upgraded several levels further in the ensuing questchain before being replaced by Sasuke's Blades. The much stronger Yoshimitsu Ultima can later be purchased in Rhalgr's Reach using tokens received from The Weapon's Refrain.
Yoshimitsu Novus and Yoshimitsu Nexus's secondary stats are determined by what the player chose to imbue in their Yoshimitsu in the process of upgrading it to Yoshimitsu Novus, and can be redone by acquiring and imbuing a new Sphere Scroll: Yoshimitsu from Hubairtin in Central Thanalan and presenting it to Jalzahn Daemir in the North Shroud.

Non-Final Fantasy guest appearancesEdit
The Final Fantasy XIV incarnation of Yoshimitsu appears as a weapon in the game as part of collaboration agreement between Square Enix and Sega.
Yoshimitsu was once a smith of Awataguchi, and lived in the Golden Era of koto katana in the Kamakura Era. Along with Masamune, Yoshimitsu is one of the three historically renowned swordsmiths of Japan. Though his career rarely saw him create swords, he was widely celebrated for his skill at making tanto and daggers, which is why a majority of his weapons are often portrayed as ninja blades.
