Type: Blade
Specializes In: Melee/Ranged Combat
Strengths: Powerful ranged attacks, strong homing ability
Weaknesses: Slow attack speed, slow movement speed, and long charge time

The Gaol Blade (ガイナスの撃剣 Gainasu no Gekiken, literally meaning "Gainas's Fencing") is a jagged purple and red blade modeled after Dark Lord Gaol's armor. Its ranged attacks look the same as many of Gaol's attacks. The standing charged shot travels in an arc and bounces along the ground, somewhat like a cannon's projectiles. Its dash continuous fire, standing charged, and forward dash charged shots all have very strong homing ability. The side and backward dash shot's homing is considerably weaker but still slightly above average. The Gaol Blade's main drawback is its lack of speed on all fronts: movement, charge time, and shot speed.

Idol description

A Blade forged from the same cursed material as Dark Lord Gaol's armor. While it has the most powerful ranged attacks of any blade and its charged shot has strong homing ability, these attacks move slowly.

Base statistics

Weapon data is for weapons with zero ranged and melee stars with no mods to them. Distance refers to the maximum range a shot can travel, measured with non-homing shots. Damage (near) refers to the damage done when the target is as close as possible. Damage (far) refers to the damage given at maximum range. The symbol "—" means the corresponding stat is not applicable to that specific attack.
