The Optical Blade (撃剣オプティカルセイバー Gekiken Oputikaru Seibaa, literally meaning "Fencing: Optical Saber") is a blade with a barrel made of green light. This blade's barrel can slice through steel. It has pretty good melee ability and its shots strengthen over distance, something rare among a Blade's shots. However, due to its lightness, it exposes the user to easy knockdowns.

Main Article: Fuse Weapons
In Kid Icarus: Uprising, it is possible to fuse two weapons into a new one. The stronger the weapons you use are, the stronger the result will be. Certain weapon modifiers from the old weapons have a chance of being transported to the new one. There are many pairs of weapons that can be fused into a Optical Blade. The Optical Blade can also be fused into many other weapons. Here are just a few examples.
