Tsubaki Mode Change: Chain Scythe (椿のモード変化 [鎖鎌], Tsubaki no Mōdo Henkō "Kusarigrama")[1] is one of the Demon Shadow Weapon's technique, weapon transformations.[2]


The Chain Scythe appears as a long metal chain with each end of the chain tipped with a yellow handle that has a small double-edged and double-pointed scythe blade attached. Three dark grooves appear below each blade. The weapon is also adored with yellow dots on the handles, making them appear as if they have eyes.[3]

Special Abilities

The Chain Scythe form can be used in close-range combat, and also long-range as the scythe blades can be thrown at an opponent as an attack, or as a means to trap them to make them wide open for a close-range attack. Tsubaki's Chain Scythe form is also used by Black☆Star to execute a number of other special moves. The chain on this Weapon form can alter, becoming long or shorter.[2][4]
