First game

Fire Emblem Fates

Takumi's Shinai (Japanese: タクミの竹刀 Takumi's Bamboo Sword) is a katana that debuted in Fire Emblem Fates. Named for the Hoshidan prince Takumi, it possesses middling stats with the lowest power of any katana, aside from the Daikon Radish, and it is unable to kill enemies at all with lethal hits always leaving them with just one hit point remaining. While it is effectively useless for serious combat, it is a helpful tool for feeding experience to weaker units, as a stronger unit can use it to cut an enemy's HP down to the point where weaker units can quickly kill them.

Trivia

  • The fact that this weapon is a katana contrasts to Takumi's weapon preferences; Takumi's default class cannot wield katana, and all of Takumi's default class change options lack the ability to wield katana as well, meaning Takumi would the need of a support to be able to wield the weapon bearing his name. (His brother's named weapon also goes against their default preferences, but Ryoma at least has one class in his default pool capable of wielding his themed weapon,)

Takumi's Shinai

A shinai is a mock bamboo sword used in the modern martial art of kendo. It was designed as a practice weapon which would simulate the weight of a proper katana without the risk of injuring its user or their target, and is made up of four segments which are designed to bend on contact, causing nothing worse than bruises no matter how hard it is swung.
