The Dark Blade is a weapon found in some 2011 Ninjago sets, often used by Skulkin. It is a cutlass-like sword with a large blade and a wide handguard. The blade is chipped in several places, giving the weapon a sinister, unkempt look.
The Dark Blade is said to have a rudimentary sentience that enables it to seek out points on its foes where it can do the most damage possible. This quality makes it a feared weapon, and it is said to be manufactured with the Skulkin in mind as its wielders.
Not your typical sword, the Dark Blade actually looks for trouble. It pokes and prods life with its jagged point trying to do as much damage as it can. It’s a weapon of great fear, and it was created especially for the Skeleton Army.
- Although the official Ninjago website showed a dark metal color, no Dark Blades actually exist in that color.
- Its overall appearance appears to be a foil to the thin, straight katanas favored by the Ninja.
