AppearanceEdit

Their shape is quite strange: they have regular tsubas, protruding on four sides, and red hilt wrapping, but their blade is very large and it grows thinner near the tip. Upon using them as his prosthetic, the hilts are wedged into the stumps of where he amputated his legs. Though it is unknown what special properties they have, he notes them to be famous.[1]

AbilitiesEdit

Shiki has been shown to wield both of his swords with great skill. He was powerful enough to kill a massive amount of soldiers in Marineford, as well as challenge famous characters like Gol D. Roger, Monkey D. Garp, and Sengoku with them.

After the two swords became his new legs, he has shown to be able to send out air-based slashes by kicking with them, similar to the CP9 members' Rankyaku technique. The air-blades have a light-yellow/gold color-scheme, matching Shiki's epithet. He also combines his sword skills with his Fuwa Fuwa no Mi, such as slashing open a body of water and then levitating it to drown his opponents.

HistoryEdit

In the past, Shiki wielded them as regular swords, and he used them to slaughter many Marine soldiers in Marineford a week before Gol D. Roger's execution. He then challenged Monkey D. Garp and Sengoku with these blades, but was ultimately defeated, and his swords confiscated by Impel Down while he was imprisoned there at Level 6.

Twenty years prior to the start of the series, after severing his legs to escape Impel Down, he retrieved Oto and Kogarashi from the prison and grafted both swords onto where his missing feet were. Since then they became his prosthetic legs.

The swords ultimately fell with Shiki when he was defeated by Monkey D. Luffy; what happened to them after that is unknown.[2]

Translation and Dub issuesEdit

"Oto" literally translates to "Ten Cherry Blossoms", while "Kogarashi" means "Cold Wintry Wind".
