Debut Ninja Gaiden 3

The Jinran-Maru (迅嵐丸 Jinranmaru?, Rapid Storm) is the name of the sword owned by Hayate in the Dead or Alive series and used by Ryu Hayabusa in Ninja Gaiden 3 and Razor's Edge.

InfoEdit

The sword appears to be a traditional, straight-blade sword similar to the Dragon Sword. It is unknown whether or not it has any special properties. But as the name suggest, it may control the power of storm. One evidence of Jinran-Maru's powers may have been shown in Razor's Edge, when wielded with Blade of the Archfiend in Dragon's Claw and Tiger's Fang movelist, the Ultimate Technique is shown sending out multiple slashing wind blades in the end.

The blade is normally seen being held in a scabbard on Hayate's back. Hayate has been seen using it in battle during the conflict against DOATEC in Dead or Alive 4. Its first debut is Dead or Alive 3, and Hayate, it's wielder, is a master ninja in the Mugen Tenshin Ninja Clan. Hayate's first Debut is also Dead or Alive 3.

HistoryEdit

Jinran-maru is a legendary katana that has been passed down in the Mugen Tenshin shinobi clan for the past seventeen generations, since the Era of War. As the Ryuken; the Sword of the Dragons is granted to only the Dragon Ninja, Jinran-maru; the sword of the storm is granted to only the heads of the Mugen Tenshin ninja clan. This sword is a favorite blade of the 18th Master Ninja of the clan, and Ryu's most cherished friend, Hayate. Hayate sent Ayane to deliver the sword upon learning of Ryu's plight with the Grip of Murder.

PlotEdit

Ninja Gaiden 3Edit

When Ryu traveled to Rub'al Khali, he managed to destroy some LOA Terrorists' Motorbike with a Lock-on Bow, as the Dragon Sword was in his arm due to the Grip of Murder cast by the Regent of the Mask. Hayate, upon hearing this news, sent Ayane to Rub'al Khali to let Ryu borrow his Jinran-Maru. She told Ryu to bring it back in one piece since it's a loaner. Ryu uses the Jinran-Maru until his return to the Hayabusa Village to acquire the Blade of the Archfiend.
