A katana is a Japanese sword best known for being used by samurais.

Grauq owned a 23rd century katana, as well as a wakizashi. Iliana Ghemor took Grauq's katana from the Otamawan before she destroyed Grauq's ship, killing Grauq himself.

Ghemor later used Grauq's weapons against Savonigar, who managed to push it out of her grip with his own sword. It hit a mound of rock and disappeared. (DS9 novel: Warpath)

History

Tatsu Yamashiro was an average Japanese girl, save for her proficiency in the martial arts. Two brothers, Maseo and Takeo Yamashiro, both proclaimed their love for her. While she liked both, she chose Maseo. This angered Takeo, who refused to attend the couple's wedding. By this time, he had joined the Yakuza, receiving a large dragon tattoo across his chest to mark himself as such. As a result, his family disowned him.

After the deaths of Tatsu's parents, (cause unknown) she and Maseo started a family of their own, and she gave birth to twins, Yuki and Reiko. Meanwhile, Takeo rose in rank of the Yakuza, and one of his exotic tastes included ancient weapons. He was presented with a pair of matched swords by General Karnz, one of which Takeo favored due to its mystical properties, which would come to be known as the Soultaker.

One night, Takeo took both swords to the Yamashiro residence. Tossing the non-powered sword to his brother and demanding he duel for Tatsu, he quickly struck Maseo down. In the course of the fight, Takeo accidentally started a fire, and while distracted by his children, Maseo was slain with the Soultaker.

Tatsu arose just in time to see her husband die, and engaged Takeo, gaining the upper hand and disarming him. When she attempted to go after her children, she heard her husband's voice telling her to turn back- coming from the sword. She listened, and watched as her house burned.

Tatsu began training as a samurai under a master called Tadashi. After much time she graduated from his tutorship and left for America where she intended to use her talents to fight for justice. She took the codename Katana after the sword that she wielded.

Outsiders

Eventually Tatsu journeyed to Markovia, a small Baltic state, where she had tracked down Karnz, and she was successful in killing him. After the fight she encountered a young girl who was named Halo. The two joined up to rescue Batman, who got captured by a blunder by Halo, and his employee Lucius Fox from their captor, Baron Bedlam.

Batman resigned his membership in the Justice League when they refused to help him in his pursuit of the Baron, and he decided instead to form the Outsiders, who were meant to be more pro-active against threats. Katana and Halo became founding members of the team, alongside Black Lightning, Geo-Force and Metamorpho.

The team managed to end the Baron's tyranny in Markovia and moved to Gotham City, where they set up their headquarters (a former penthouse of Bruce Wayne, secretly the Batman). Tatsu became Halo's guardian and the two moved into the penthouse.

At the same time, Takeo was still at large and had followed Tatsu to Gotham City. Secretly he switched swords with her and left for Tokyo with the Outsiders on his tail. Takeo took the sword to his master, the godfather of the Yakuza, known only as the Oyabun. Performing a specific ritual, the Oyabun and Takeo managed to recall the souls that inhabited the sword, who proceeded to take corporeal form. Among them were legendary mercenaries and assassins, but also Maseo, who was now a slave to the Oyabun. Katana had to fight them all and after a long battle that took its toll, Katana was able to reclaim the Soultaker and kill Takeo, and she could finally put an end to some of her ghosts. By undoing the ritual however, her husband returned into the sword as well.

At one point the Outsiders split from Batman's leadership and took up residence in Markovia where they were funded by the Markovian crown (Geo-Force is a prince of the royal family). They became the official agents of Markovia and moved to the city of Los Angeles where they made their headquarters in the Markovian embassy, while retaining another secret HQ just off the shore. Although Tatsu had left her past behind, the Oyabun returned in her life and sent a tengu after, with which he captured her. Her teammates in the Outsiders, namely Halo and Looker were able to save her using other tengu and the tengu leader, who aided them in battle.

Family Debt

After a while, the team disbanded after various tragic events surrounding Geo-Force's parents and Markovia. Nonetheless the Outsiders were forced to defend Markovia against the Manhunters, but during the fight Halo was knocked into a coma, saving Katana's life. Bounded by giri-ninjo (a debt of honor even unto death), Tatsu left the team so she could tend to Halo's wounds. During that time however, she was approached by a family member of her husband, who wished her to accompany the Suicide Squad on a mission to destroy a large horde of weapons that was about to be sold to the Yakuza. She declined on the basis of her giri-ninjo, although she was willing to help if the need was truly desperate.

That family member was later killed, and she went after the killer, the Daichi-Doku's Oyabun (of which her relative was a member), who did not wish to see the weapons destroyed and tried to stop the Suicide Squad. During that adventure, she saved the life of Bronze Tiger and Manhunter (Mark Shaw), making them honor-bound to her by giri-ninjo. Mark Shaw then assisted her in taking down the Daichi-Doku's Oyabun. The Oyabun committed ritual suicide and Katana stood by as his 'second', ready to help with a blade strike so he could keep his honor.

Returning to the Outsiders

Eventually though the Outsiders re-form and return to Markovia. Instead of a peaceful reunion however, the team become trapped in a web of public relations that brands them outlaws. Although the charges would be dropped eventually the team was fractured. Halo dies from an assassin's blast but was reborn in a new body, which put an immense strain on Tatsu's relationship with Halo.

Katana joins a team with Geo-Force and Technocrat, taking the lead. During a lone mission, Tadashi, her old mentor sends Lady Shiva to claim Katana's Soultaker sword. Shiva confronts Katana, who had been battling a gang of drug dealers. Katana had slain many, but refuses to kill the youngest member, something Shiva insults her for.

Shiva, being world-renowned as the world's greatest assassin and fighter, was able to kill Katana with her own sword. Katana returns to life after a trial by combat within her sword, which includes confronting many of the souls of the people she had killed. Afterwards, she manages to find her old mentor and take his life.

The two splinter teams would eventually reunite, to take on more supernatural threats focused around the new team member Faust. Katana and her friends suffer through the mental and physical tortures that Faust's father, Felix, puts them through. Halo eventually frees them by destroying several of Felix's items of power. Soon after, the group breaks apart. After disbanding, Tatsu has kept her association with her old allies among the Outsiders (such as Black Lightning, Geo-Force and Halo), and although they did not operate as an official team, were always seen alongside each other during major crises.

Her close ties to Batman also saw her fighting by his side, several times, notably during the Imperiex crisis and the Day of Judgment incident when hell invades Earth. The main battle against the villain, the rogue angel Asmodel, with the power of the Spectre, takes place in New York. Katana personally protects Madame Xanadu who is guarding the rest of Asmodel's power with a mystical shield. Katana's protection of Xanadu is assisted by Doctor Occult, Phantom Stranger and Alan Scott.

Later, Katana assists Batman when he and Superman were declared outlaws. Katana was also called upon by Black Canary, together with other female mercenaries, in order to rescue Oracle from Senator Pullman. After Oracle was saved, Katana received a card, together with the promise of a favor if required.

New Outsiders

Most recently, she has joined a new team of Outsiders after assisting them in defeating a more powerful Sabbac. It consists of all new members, with the exception of Metamorpho who rejoined the team after Shift's demise. Later, Katana dons a new costume, as she felt it inappropriate to wear a costume based on Japan's flag. The country had revoked her citizenship due to her membership with the controversial team.

Later, Katana summons Sabbac to destroy Dr. Sivana's base with his Hellfire.

Katana remains an active member of the Outsiders following One Year Later. Initially, the team is led by Nightwing, but later leadership transfers to Batman. Batman decides to 'test' Katana and the rest of the initial team, in order to design a better team. Katana is Batman's first official recruit.

  • Soultaker Sword: The Soultaker, along with its non-powered twin, was forged in the 14th century by Muramasa, whose swords were said to be cursed and make those who were evil commit evil acts. It sometimes takes the souls of those it kills, storing them inside the sword, where they can engage in limited communication with whoever wields it. These souls can be reincarnated by the means of a sacred ritual, under which they serve their summoner, even if it is against their will.

The Samurai's Sword is a melee weapon added to Fallout 3 in the Mothership Zeta add-on.

Contents

Characteristics

The Samurai's Sword does higher damage than most other melee weapons; however, it lacks the special effects of Jingwei's Shock Sword or the Shishkebab. On the other hand, it has a higher critical damage then most sword melee weapons, and has a relatively low AP cost compared to similar weapons, allowing for more attacks in V.A.T.S.

The following table compares the Chinese Officer's Sword, its variants to the Samurai's Sword.

NAME DMG CRIT % MULT CRIT DMG AP HP WG VAL
Chinese Officer's Sword 10 2 15 28 500 3 75
Vampire's Edge 15 3 20 28 750 1 100
Jingwei's Shock Sword 35 2 25 28 850 3 500
Samurai's Sword 24 2 40 19 1000 3 75

Obtaining

The Samurai's Sword can be found in the Waste Disposal area of the Mothership, accessible through the Maintenance Level (which can be entered during Among the Stars). It is at the "end" of the area in a closet full of medical supplies (see Waste Disposal article for a map with the location marked).

Notes

  • The sword can be given to Toshiro Kago after finding it in the Waste Disposal area.
  • The sword will vanish from the Waste Disposal area once Toshiro kago leaves the group in the Engineering Core, presumably because he retrieves it (he does not actually travel there; the sword's disappearance is scripted). He will then have it with him when you meet him the next time in the Living Quarters or on the Bridge during and after the This Galaxy Ain't Big Enough... quest. At this point, it can only be obtained by reverse-pickpocketing him or looting it from his body if he dies.

Bugs

  • When trying to exit the Waste Disposal area, the Teleportation Matrix might not work. PC users can fix it by selecting the teleporter in console and use the command "activate" (Confermed PS3, PC)
  • The sword might not appear if Toshiro Kago has been killed before entering the Waste Disposal area.
  • It is possible to obtain two Samurai's Swords: one from the Waste Disposal area and another one from Toshiro Kago by reverse-pickpocketing him in the Living Quarters or on the Bridge, or if he dies during the battle on the Bridge, though chances are if one of the two is dropped it will disappear from the game completely leaving only one. It can also be shot out off his hands in V.A.T.S.

Behind the scenes

  • Not to be confused with the cut content weapon Katana.

History

The Katana originated in the Muromachi period (1392–1573) as a result of changing battle conditions requiring faster response times. The Katana facilitated this by being worn with the blade facing up, which allowed the samurai to draw and cut their enemy in a single motion. Previously, the curved sword of the samurai was worn with the blade facing down. The ability to draw and cut in one motion also became increasingly useful in the daily life of the samurai.

It would seem that the aliens grabbed one as a keepsake.

GTA

From Grand Theft Wiki

The icon in GTA: San Andreas
The Katana.

The Katana is a melee weapon of Japanese origin. It is available in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. It is one of the more powerful melee type weapons; it is able to behead opponents with a single slice, and is not as heavy as the cumbersome chainsaw.

Contents

Notable appearances

In 1998, Toni Cipriani and Kazuki Kasen engage in a katana duel on the roof of the Big Shot Casino with katanas (though the player may choose to use other weapons.). The same occurs between Snakehead and CJ, on a freighter off San Fierro in 1992. In both cases, the player may pull out a gun and quickly kill the opponent.

Locations

GTA Vice City

GTA San Andreas

GTA Liberty City Stories

GTA Vice City Stories

  • At the foot of a building that is located along the beach, and the building is eastward across the fairground.

Glitch

In GTA SA, there is a glitch that will cause CJ to be able to run around without a head. To exploit this glitch, start a multiplayer game making sure player two has a Katana. When it starts have player two cut off player one's head with the Katana. This will cause the multiplayer session to end. Once it returns to one player mode, CJ won't have a head, and can stay like that for as long as the player desires.

(32 votes)
For the Gamma Company team, see Team Katana
The Katana.

The Katana is a special Armor Permutation unlockable by earning 49 out of 79 Achievements and 1000 gamerscore.

Contents

Characteristics

The Katana consists of a normal Hayabusa body with a Katana sword affixed to the back with a white attachment, possibly magnetized. The sheath of the Katana is grey and the handle is a reddish brown color. It is not possible to use this item during gameplay.

Description

To correctly use the sword, one must make it an extension of one's body. This is for the understanding of those intending to be warriors.

Disadvantages

Users have reported that like the Security Shoulders, the Katana can re-lock and unlock again. For example, having 980 gamerscore and obtaining an achievement worth 25 gamerscore may unlock them, but they can later re-lock themselves, requiring the player to obtain more achievements in order to unlock it again.

The way the Katana sticks up can reveal the player if they are sniping, however, if it is shot they do not take damage. It also cannot be stuck by a grenade.

Trivia

  • The Katana closely resembles Ryu Hayabusa's Dragon Sword, and is not usable by the player.
  • The Katana can no longer be unlocked by just earning 1000G in Halo 3. One of the only ways to unlock the Katana after the 1.2 update and 1.3 is to unlock 49 out of the 79 achievements. Unlocking 40 of the 79 achievements worth 1000G, the conclusion is that you MUST have 49 achievements to unlock the Katana. The Katana, as well as the Security permutations, are fabled "armor" glitches, in which they appear and disappear randomly. With the Security, a 1000 gamerscore locks it in, and for Katana, 1750 guarantees it. Since the release of the Mythic Map Pack the Katana seems to unlock for those that download early (without the need for 1000 gamerscore OR 49 achievements).
  • McFarlane Toys produces a set titled Hayabusa Katana and Scabbard, containing an Action Figure-sized Katana and its sheath.

Starwars

Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Katana was a Dreadnaught-class heavy cruiser that served in the Judicial Starfleet of the Old Republic. It was the flagship of the fleet that bore its name.

Contents

History

Around 45 BBY, it was lost with the rest of the fleet due to the outbreak of a hive virus that caused the crew of the Katana to go crazy and jump to random hyperspace coordinates, along with the other 199 slaved ships. That fleet was called the Katana Fleet or, in the Rebellion Era, the Dark Force.

Although the fleet was rediscovered fifty years later, and the majority captured by the Empire (and subsequently destroyed or captured throughout the remainder of the Galactic Civil War), the Katana herself was one of the 15 ships recovered by the New Republic. During the Battle for the Katana fleet, a team led by Luke Skywalker was able to use the Katana to destroy the Imperial I-class Star Destroyer Peremptory, by Han Solo using its slave circuit controls to ram one of the other Dreadnaughts into the Star Destroyer. While the Katana was almost certainly restored and pressed into service with the New Republic, the final fate of the ship is not known.

Behind the scenes

A katana sword, also known as a samurai sword, was a certain kind of sword used in medieval Japan. Katana was also the name of a Japanese server—or "Galaxy"—in Star Wars Galaxies.
