Kusanagi or Kusanagi Tsurugi (草薙剣 / クサナギのつるぎ) is a weapon in the series.

History[edit | edit source]

Originally called Ama-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi, it was the sword obtained from Yamata-no-Orochi's corpse after Susano-O slayed it with the Totsuka no Tsurugi. The sword was given to his sibling Amaterasu as atonement for his previous actions and made into one of the Three Sacred Treasures. Its name means Grass cutting sword.
