  • Iaidō is a form of Japanese martial art that is concerned with the smooth, controlled movements of drawing the sword from its scabbard, striking or cutting an opponent, removing blood from the blade, and then replacing the sword in the scabbard. The linear motion and force applied to draw the sword from the scabbard results in slashes that are faster and stronger than ones executed with the sword already drawn.
  • The victory stance of Iaido katana is meant to represent "chiburi/chiburui", a precise blade movement done to remove blood off the katana after cutting an opponent.
  • Cap of Concentration from the set resembles Crescent Visor, a helm from it's Legendary counterpart.
  • Itu's Hermit Katana has the legendary rarity instead of common, as it carries the Windmill shadow ability. The common Hermit Katana will get the Dash shadow ability instead if the AI uses it.
    • A player named Devil's Heart own the legendary Hermit Katana, as the developer's gift to him for his massive in-game purchase. Aside from the weapon, he also own the Ambassador's Reinforced Coat.
