The Samurai Blade (撃剣景丸 Gekiken Keimaru, literally meaning "Fencing: Little View") is a Blade introduced in Kid Icarus: Uprising that concentrates more on melee attacks than ranged attacks. Its ranged shots are weak, but they are more than made up for with the effectiveness of the blade in close combat. It gives the user good mobility, too, and may possibly have the fastest melee attack of any weapon. The Samurai Blade possesses the most powerful melee attacks of all Blades, outclassing the Gaol Blade and the Crusader Blade. It is recommended exclusively for close combat fighting, along with the Magnus Club.

This blade is not recommended for those who play in Solo Mode or use ranged shots often to attack in the Multiplayer Mode as the Samurai Blade has one of the weakest ranged attacks of any weapon.
