Eiserne Drossel ("Iron Thrush" in German) is a ring blade used by Tira. Nothing is really known about this weapon. In Soulcalibur III, the blade of the ring is dull on the inside but sharp on the outside, allowing Tira to swing it around without injuring herself. Alternately, in Soulcalibur IV, certain attacks like Hisi Baroque (Gloomy →B) and Grim Reaper (Gloomy B+K), cause damage to Tira, allowing her to change from her Jolly Side to her Gloomy Side, and vice versa. Originally, Eiserne Drossel was known as "Aiselne Drossel" in Soulcalibur III, but the name was correctly transcribed in the following installments.
