Royal Blade
Type: Weapon
Specializes In: Long-Range Combat
Strengths: Strong backward-dash charge shots, increased power at long range, good homing ability
Weaknesses: Low homing ability, weak forward-dash attacks, weak melee attacks

The Royal Blade, known in Japan as King's Fencing (王者の撃剣 Ouja no Gekiken, ), is a Blade in Kid Icarus: Uprising that fires clusters of jewels. While the charged shots have relatively poor homing capability, the dash continuous fire's homing ability is a good bit better, although its overall attack power is rather low. Its backward dash attacks have a long range and deal more damage than its other attacks, making it ideal for players who wish to focus on evading enemy attacks without sacrificing offensive power. Unlike most blades, its attacks gain power as they travel.

Idol description

"Once the heirloom of a royal house, this blade has since been worn by time and neglect. Its most powerful shots are those used during a backward dash, making the Royal Blade perfect for a hit-and-run strategy."
