Yasutsuna AoS Icon

Yasutsuna is a sword said to have cut off a demon's arm. In Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, it functions much like the Crissaegrim, except that it is two-handed, does not have a delay between swings, it is stronger in raw damage, although weaker in total damage and in practice (because it doesn't damage as fast and often as the Crissaegrim), and has less range.

In later games, it functions as a standard katana; via the other three named katanas (Onikiri, Kunitsuna and Muramasa), in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow holding down B makes the ending portion of the swing hit twice; in that said game, Yasutsuna also has a base 40 attack, making it the strongest out of the prior two katanas in that regard. However, collecting it in Aria of Sorrow outside of an enemy drop may take some backtracking, since it can easily be just as ignored as the Vjaya (both are found in out-of-reach areas back at the Ruined Castle Corridor; the Yasutsuna in particular requires the use of the Giant Bat soul).

However, the sword returns to its former glory in Harmony of Despair when used by Alucard.

OriginsEdit

The Doujikiri Yasutsuna was a legendary blade created by the swordsmith, Yasutsuna, and wielded by Minamoto-no-Raikou in Japanese folklore. It was used for several notable feats such as decapitating the oni leader, Shuten Douji, as well as slaying the Tsuchigumo, and later cutting off the arm of Shuten Douji's former subordinate, Ibaraki Douji of Rashomon. Due to these legendary exploits, it is known as one of the "Five Swords Under Heaven", and considered to be a national treasure.
