Shin Megami Tensei
Masakado's Katana can only be obtained on the Neutral route. After the Four Heavenly Kings are defeated and Tokyo floods, the Imperial Palace can be found on an island north-west of the Great Cathedral. Inside the Palace, Masakado will explain how Tokyo's future is now in the hands of the protagonist and will hand over his katana. After receiving Masakado's Katana, his armor can be obtained by visiting the mansions that previously housed the Heavenly Kings; by going over the mansions, the Gate Orb will activate and one of the pieces of Masakado's Armor will float up to the protagonist.
Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne
Masakados is the strongest Magatama in Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne. To obtain it, the Demi-fiend must collect all of the 24 Magatama scattered around the Vortex World. After collecting them, he should go to the Cathedral of Shadows, where the minister will congratulate the Demi-fiend for obtaining every single one of the malevolent spirits. He will then give the Demi-fiend the "Lord's Sword", advising him to visit the grave of Masakado with the sword in his possession.
The gravestone is located northeast of the Tower of Kagatsuchi. Exit from the Assembly of Nihilo: Marunouchi and it will be above the Demi-fiend. Upon examining the gravestone, the blade will react, and the Demi-fiend will find himself teleported to the Bandou Shrine.
The Demi-fiend must then lower the four pillars around the labyrinthine surroundings of the field in order to lower the Shrine which serves as Masakado's true resting place. Each pillar represents one of the four devas, Zochoten, Komokuten, Jikokuten, and Bishamonten, all of whom must be defeated. Upon successfully doing so, the Demi-fiend can finally approach Masakado, who proceeds to question his purpose. Regardless of the answer, Masakado will impart his power to him in the form of a Magatama. It is all he can do since he cannot exist in the world outside.
Masakado also tells the Demi-fiend that regardless of what kind of world Tokyo would turn out to be, it is still Tokyo. As the current bearer of his power, the Demi-fiend is now obligated to do what he thinks is best for the peace of Tokyo in Masakado's stead.
- Focuses on learning passive repel skills, plus the strongest multi-target Almighty and Expel spells.
- It can be obtained at the Bandou Shrine from Masakado (see above).
- This is the most powerful Magatama in the game in terms of resistances and stats boost.

"The medium used to control Masakado. Even for a tachi, Masakado's katana is cnsidered long at 5 feet in total length. Though many believe it to be Masakado's beloved weapon, it was actually crafted after his death as an object of worship.
Prior to God's Plan, a young man in the Counter-Demon Force possessed Masakado's Katana. Upon his death, however, Skins kept the blade safe until, eventually, passing it unto Flynn, the first person capable of unsheathing the sword since the one who merged with Masakado to form the Ceiling."
