The Dual Hound (デュアルハウンド, Dyuaru Haundo?) is a high-powered gauntlet/melee weapon that first appeared in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children.
The weapon of the Sephiroth Remnant Loz, the Dual Hound is retractable gauntlet designed to function as a taser weapon with varying degrees of voltage. Capable of sending currents strong enough to shatter stone, the Dual Hound is also used as part of a pseudo Limit Break by Loz, where he fires the weapon into the ground at such a voltage to send an eruption of earth toward a target.
In its retracted state, the weapon serves as a protective gauntlet, covering Loz's left arm. When activated, a handle swivels into the wearer's hand and further activation extracts the gauntlet's "twin-prongs" which release a strong current of energy between them when fired. During Cloud Strife's pursuit of Kadaj in Edge, Loz's Dual Hound and Yazoo's Velvet Nightmare are destroyed by the Fusion Swords.
