Onikiri and Ubadachi are unique among paired weapons, as the paired attacks require some finesse and aggressiveness in order to use properly.
One-handed, it possesses the standard katana moveset. However, pulling out the off-hand blade allows the player to execute quick slashing and thrusting combos, dealing good damage and inflicting impressive Bleed build-up. As the off-hand blade is rather short (only slightly longer than most daggers), utilizing the paired attacks requires the player to get extremely close to the target, otherwise the short blade will not connect and thus greatly reduce the damage output of the attacks.
However, what truly makes Onikiri and Ubadachi shine is its skill, Onislayer. The player leaps at the target with both katanas and slashes powerfully with both blades at the same time, dealing strong stagger and damage. It inflicts tremendous Poise damage, allowing it to interrupt attacks from large weapons under the right circumstances.
