The Chikage is a Trick Weapon in Bloodborne.

Description

In-Game Description

Foreign-made weapon wielded by the royal guards who protect Annalise, Queen of the Vilebloods at Cainhurst Castle.
When the intricate, rippled engraving that spans the Chikage's blade is imbrued with blood, the sword sings in scarlet hues.
However, the rite eats away at the wielder's very essence.

Availability

It is sold by the Bath Messengers for 50,000 Blood Echoes after pledging oath to the Cainhurst Vilebloods and obtaining the Cainhurst Badge.

Characteristics

The Chikage is a katana that drains the player's health when transformed in exchange for pure Bloodtinge damage.

The health drain is rather slow and is based on percentages. Meaning health loss occurs at the same rate regardless of vitality.

The Blood Mode deals pure Bloodtinge damage. Bloodtinge damage is extremely powerful because it is a damage type that is neither physical nor elemental. Most common enemies have high resistances against both physical and arcane/elemental. Bloodtinge is something that most enemies only have a moderate resistance.

Notes

  • Bloodtinge damage can be boosted through physical attack up blood-gems.
  • When transformed, the Chikage's damage is based solely on its Bloodtinge scaling. In its normal form its damage is based on its Strength and Skill scaling, respectively.
  • Bloodtinge damage instantly knocks down spiders, dogs, and Cainhurst Servants.
  • The charge attack of the transformed version drains health at a faster rate while charging, so it is possible to commit suicide while using it.
  • In a similar vein to Patches the Spider, the Chikage is the recurring continuation of a legacy of katana-type swords that drain the players health, with an iteration of such weapon appearing in all of the other Souls games. This includes Hiltless, Magic Sword Makoto, and the Chaos Blade.
  • Another similarity the Chikage has with the self-damaging weapons is that both it and the Chaos Blade from Dark Souls have red ribbons attached to their sheaths.
