    • The fourth attack shown in the details section of this page represents the charged attack, however the charged attack can be initiated at any point in the combo.
    • When striking the back of a Thorny, the player is not always injured. The charged attacked enables the player to bypass the protection provided by their back and deal damage without injury.
    • The damage from the charge attack comes directly from where you stop moving, meaning that if a Shieldbearer is facing you when you start the charge, it will damage the Shieldbearer once you finish. This works the same way for every other enemy that can block attacks.

      • It in particular is named after Hattori Hanzō, the sword-smith who created the weapon.
    • This weapon was added due to high popular demand for a katana weapon, similarly to the Vorpan Icon.png Vorpan and the Scythe Claw Icon.png Scythe Claw.
