The Rotating Shadow Sword,[1] also known as the Rotating Blade,[2] was one of Makuta Icarax's melee weapons. It was used to channel his Shadow powers. Three claws jutted out from the middle of the sword.[3]

After Icarax took to sitting on the throne in the Destral Fortress, he was sharpening his twin-bladed sword, when Vican arrived.[4] The Rotating Shadow Sword was separated into atoms and were scattered all over the Matoran Universe along with Icarax when Gorast disrupted his Teleportation power.[5]

Example Usage

In The Final Battle, Icarax attempted to tear open Makuta Gorast's armor with his sword so as to incinerate her Antidermis.
