The Kodachi (小太刀 Kodachi) is a Katana that is introduced in Fire Emblem Fates. Unlike most other Katana, the Kodachi is capable of performing ranged attacks, although this comes at the cost of preventing its wielder from performing double and critical attacks, alongside increasing the enemy's ability to double attack. Like most other Katana, the Kodachi reduces its wielder's Defense and Resistance by 1, but raises their Speed by 1.
Cannot double or critical.
Kodachi, literally meaning Small Tachi, are among the many types of Japanese swords wielded by the Samurai class in Feudal Japan. The exact usage of the Kodachi is not known; some believe it was a companion sword, others believe it was for training an adolescent.
