Physical Appearance

Initially appearing as a dark purple orb with a yellow center, the Midnight Palm is a weapon that, once transferred to the user's arm, possesses light colored markings with a single rabbit-like pattern. In addition, the palm of the user's hand glows like moonlight, and crescent moon shapes whirl alongside the weapon's dusty aura.

The Midnight Palm is geared toward defense, with ranged attacks that have a strong potential of nullifying incoming fire. It has powerful but slow shots. Its backward-dash charged shot crushes foes with a gigantic moon.

  • The rabbit-like pattern shown on the Midnight Palm is likely a reference to the Moon rabbit of Japanese folklore.
