Type: Weapon
Specializes In: Melee/Ranged Combat
Strengths: Superb melee; high nullification
Weaknesses: Slow shots; poor homing ability, reduced speed

The Crusader Blade is a Blade in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It is a blue and black cross-shaped blade that extends a blue cross during melee attacks and fires large, star-shaped projectiles. It is an all-around powerful blade, boasting not only superb melee damage, but strong ranged shots with high nullification value as well. This blade's main disadvantage is that its shots travel slowly and have very limited homing ability. Its range is slightly below average, as are its dash continuous fire's homing ability and charge time.

Idol description

The horizontal stock crossing the barrel is packed with a substance that generates this weapon's wide-ranged shots. These shots have the strong potential for nullifying enemy fire, and the weapon's weight makes its melee attacks powerful.
