Piercing Sabimaru Notes & Tips

  • The Piercing Sabimaru allows users to do two things that are distinct and important compared to other sabimaru verisions:
  • First, it reduces the required hits to poison the target, especially the required hits on blocking targets.
  • Lastly, it deals a small amount of damage to vitality through guard. It does not do increased damage to targets that don't guard the attack when compared to the preceding Sabimaru variants.



Piercing Sabimaru Story & Lore

  • The Okami are called 淤加美 (okami) in Japanese, derived from one of the ancient spellings of Kuraokami, a dragon deity of rain and snow from Japanese mythology, born from the blood of the slain god Kagutsuchi. More modern spellings are a bit more obvious as to what the names supposed to mean: 龗 (okami) means "water dragon" and 闇龗 (kuraokami) means "dark water dragon." It's likely that the Divine Dragon (called the Sakura Dragon in Japanese) is inspired by Kuraokami.
