Ninja blades (忍者刀, Ninja Katana?), also known as ninja swords, ninja daggers, short swords, or dirks, are recurring weapons throughout the Final Fantasy series, often exclusive to the Ninja job. Depending on the game ninja blades are sometimes classified as daggers or swords.

ProfileEdit

Ninja blades are katana variants, based on a theoretical real life counterpart variant, the ninjato, blades said to have been wielded and crafted by ninjas themselves to accompany their repertoire and skill. Likewise to their real life counterparts, ninja blades are straight, short, and even more agile than their larger counterparts, and often remain exclusive to their namesake job class.

Depending upon their presentation, ninja blades will often meld between hosting their own set list, commonly found in Ivalice titles, or, boast the names of creators commonly associated with katana set lists. They may deal Dark-elemental damage, keeping in theme with their shadowy and stealth based associative class.
