The Vigoorian Flail is a much more specialized weapon and much shorter weapon than the Dragon Sword and is best for close quarters crowd control. For ground-based enemies that tend to clump together, this is an effective way to mete out mass quantities of destruction with minimal effort.

This weapon is basically a pair of sickles tied together by a short rope or chain similar to a nunchaku with a mid sized blades on each handle. Although they are unrelated, the Vigoorian Flail has medieval European origins.

History Edit

NG2-Vflail1

The Vigoorian Flail.

Quoted directly from Ninja Gaiden II:

An offshoot of the spiked weapons used in medieval Europe, this unorthodox flail was made in the Vigoor Empire during the Middle Ages. It is believed that this weapon was originally a flail with large spikes on each end. It is swung very much like an Asian nunchaku, but no historical evidence suggests that the two weapons are related. The Vigoorian Flail saw very little use as an official weapon of war. The records point to it being a favored weapon of participants in the Divine Vigoor Games, which were an extremely bloody gladiatorial contest popular amongst Imperial Vigoorian royalty in the 13th and 14th centuries. In this role, the flail was undoubtedly responsible for the deaths of countless brave combatants. The famed Ninja Ryu Hayabusa first began using the Vigoorian Flail a year ago, while on an excursion to the Vigoor Empire during the Dark Dragon Blade Incident. When asked his opinion of the weapon, he stated "Not bad." He seems rather fond of them.

TriviaEdit

  • The Vigoorian Flail is the fastest melee weapon in the game.
  • This weapon is considered the best melee weapon for the "Feat of a Hundred Slashes" Achievement.
  • Beating the game (Xbox 360)/kill 1000 enemies (PS3) by only using this weapon will unlock the "Vigoorian Flail Master" achievement.
  • The Vigoorian Flail is based on the Kama-Nunchaku, which is a nunchaku with sickles on each stick. The weapon exists but only used for show, as using it in actual combat will obviously hurt yourself.
