The Viper Blade, know in Japan as Fencing: Viper (撃剣バイパー "Gekiken Baipā") is a Blade in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It has shots that travel in a long arc that can bend sharply toward enemies. It is among the few weapons that can poison enemies without any kind of modifier. It has above average range for a blade, but charges somewhat slowly. Its backward dash continuous fires four slightly scattered shots, whereas the rest of its dash continuous fire shots fire three in a line. This blade's ranged damage is heavily affected by distance, more-so than most other blades.

Idol description

A blade said to have been forged from the scales of a thousand venomous serpents. It's one of the few weapons that inflicts poison damage. Users of this blade should soothe its dark, nightly rattlings with gentle caresses.
