Nothing says "carnivore" like a pair of these bestial knuckles.

Tiger Fangs (タイガーファング, Taigā Fangu?), also known as Tigerfang or Tiger Claws, are a recurring weapon in the series. They vary on power in each game they appear in, but are usually mid-level to high-level weapons. They usually boast no special effects, but are usually quite powerful in terms of Attack power. They sometimes boost other stats as well when equipped.

EtymologyEdit

Tiger Fangs is another name for the Bagh nakha, a claw-like weapon from India designed to fit over the knuckles or be concealed under and against the palm.

The tiger (Panthera tigris) is the largest cat species, reaching a total body length of up to 3.38 m (11.1 ft) over curves and exceptionally weighing up to 388.7 kg (857 lb) in the wild. Its most recognisable feature is a pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside.

In East Asian cultures, the dragon and the tiger are considered eternal rivals. Various artworks depict the two fighting an epic battle, the dragon representative of things of Yang polarity and spirit, with the tiger representative of things of Yin polarity and matter. Ultimately, they represent the inevitable reconciliation of opposing but equal forces. The dragon is a creature of the skies, whereas the tiger is considered the king of all terrestrial beasts, and their bouts always end in a draw.

In the context of Eastern and Asian martial arts, the dragon represents the aspects of soft style and internal martial arts, focusing on accuracy, mental alertness, and fluid reactivity. The tiger represents the aspects of hard style and external martial arts, focusing on explosive speed, raw strength, and countering an opposing force with one's own. In martial arts fiction and fantasy, internal based martial arts are often seen with abilities centered on chi energy and spiritual powers, while external martial arts are depicted with unparalleled physical proportions, with the most reputable martial arts being able to harmonize and utilize both aspects as one force.
