Taki's original weapon from Soul Edge, and one of the few original weapons to have never been replaced in the following games.

The BladesEdit

Rekki-Maru (裂鬼丸)Edit

Taki's original weapon from Soul Edge, and one of the few original weapons to have never been replaced in the following games. The games labels Rekkimaru as a ninjatō (a ninja sword). According to its Soulcalibur profile, Rekkimaru is Taki's preferred weapon. She made it herself and infused its blade with mystical powers.

Mekki-Maru (滅鬼丸)Edit

Taki's secondary weapon, added in Soulcalibur as her new dual-wielding style. Mekkimaru is the lower blade on Taki's back, and is used less often than Rekkimaru gameplay-wise. Even though Taki uses a single weapon in Soul Edge, Mekkimaru can be found in her Edge Master Mode quest as one of her unlockable weapons. According to Taki's Text Adventure mini-game, Taki's Mekki-Maru apparently was once property of Yoshimitsu's deceased Manji clan.

TriviaEdit

  • Because Taki infused a shard of Soul Edge into it, Mekki-Maru glows with Soul Edge's aura.
  • Interestingly, despite Soul Edge completely reforming all of its lost shards in Soulcalibur IV, Mekki-Maru still glows with Soul Edge's power, implying that her sword still has a shard from Soul Edge in it. This could simply be a mistake on the developers part, or if the evil power of Soul Edge simply stayed with the blade after Soul Edge made its complete reformation.
  • At some point, 17 years after Soulcalibur IV, Natsu appears to have become the new wielder of Mekki-Maru (see this article).
