"Legendary weapon. Wield it to discover its true power!"
— Weapon Gallery description.

A mystically sparkling sword. Hihiirokane is the name of a mysterious Japanese metal of which little is known. It is said to respond to strong emotions and lasts for thousands of years without degrading. This sword is apparently made of that metal. However, it has been quite some time since its blade was sharp...

Hihiirokane is a fantastic scarlet blade with Japanese-style flames that appear on Yoshimitsu's regiment. It resembles these flames in that its offensive power is extraordinary.


  • Hihiirokane actually is a mythological metal or alloy in Japanese culture. Its name can be variously translated as "blood red metal," "scarlet sun metal," or "vast fire metal."
