The Scimitar is a light and fast weapon that excels at chaining together numerous small attacks to quickly stack up damage on its target. Its attacks are fast with very short delays, but this is countered by having rather short range, requiring the wielder to get in close and personal with the enemy. These characteristics help the Scimitar to define the "light curved sword" moveset that it shares with its lighter brethren.
The drawback of the Scimitar is that while it can chain together numerous small attacks, it lacks the heavier punch required to prevail against armored foes. Its strong attacks are simply chains of weak attacks, as is its skill. As well, it does not possess a kick, but rather a quick slash that can be used to create distance from a foe; this prevents the weapon from being used to break the guard of a shield.
However, complementing its light and fast nature, is that it possesses a usable off-hand moveset that allows it and other light curved swords to be wielded in the off-hand for unusual combinations. The off-hand weak attack mirrors that of the main-hand one-handed weak attacks, allowing for the use of a heavier weapon in the main hand to bring both fast and slow attacks to bear on opponents. The off-hand strong attack causes the wielder to perform a parry, with similar startup and active frames as a medium shield, further increasing its offensive potential.
