Weapon Fusion

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 Somewhat Staff. The Somewhat Staff can also be fused into many other weapons. Here are just a few examples.
