The Uchigatana is a katana in Demon's Souls.

DescriptionEdit

In-Game Description

A keen, thinly bladed katana forged in a distant country.
The long black blade is heavier than it looks. It has very high attack power and causes enemies to bleed, but the fragile blade is easily nicked.


AvailabilityEdit

General InformationEdit

The Uchigatana combines high speed with high damage. Although it has low base damage when compared to the other katanas, the Hiltless and the Magic Sword "Makoto", the Uchigatana has potentially better scaling when upgraded down the various upgrade paths, making it the best katana to use for higher level dexterity builds.

The Uchigatana benefits from a versatile moveset. While most of its attacks are fast swings dealing slashing damage, its one-handed R2 attack is a stabbing lunge that has decent reach and not too much starting lag. Since it counts as stabbing damage, it is particularly useful for the area Stonefang Tunnel, where most enemies have very high slash resistance but little stab resistance.

When upgraded down the Mercury path, it deals both Bleed and Poison status effects, which may be useful for builds designed to deal damage over time. However, it deals its absolute highest damage per hit down the Sharp path (for dexterity builds).
