"My sword, once drawn, has never known defeat!"
— Murasaki while speaking to Goku.

Sasanishiki (ササニシキ), or Meitō Sasanishiki,[2] is the short katana[2] that is the beloved legendary sword of Ninja Murasaki.[3]


Broken sword

Murasaki's sword broken

When Murasaki was being chased by Goku, he slashed a tree, cutting it in many pieces. The second time he wielded it, ended with Murasaki landing on Goku's Power Pole.

Then they got serious and started fighting for real. Murasaki slashed to Goku and Goku slashed back with the Power Pole, it became a crash and they jumped away from each other, and Goku counterattacked him with a few Power Pole slashes, Murasaki blocked them all, barely, and then ultimately Goku leaped in the air, slashed with his Power Pole, and the sword broke in two.

Dragon Ball: Xenoverse in-game description


  • Murasaki's sword is called "Sasanishiki", like the Japanese rice from Sendai.
  • The Murasaki Brothers have swords that look exactly like Murasaki's. Of Murasaki's four brothers, Kon is the one who uses it the most.
  • A continuity error is Murasaki's sword being broken by Goku's Power Pole, yet in later scenes, he has it again (namely those where he threatens Dr. Flappe). However, he could have taken a sword from one of his brothers.
  • Yajirobe's katana looks very similar to the Sasanishiki.
  • In Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, it is also possible to obtain a Murasaki-style Ninja Suit via the GT Pack 1 DLC and wearing the Ninja Sword accessory which is already available for purchased at the Accessory Shop, completes the Murasaki theme.
