** The characters on the box are okay, and can be pronounced "dai" and "katana" individually, but when characters are combined together, they can have different pronunciations. In this case, the overall word would be pronounced "daitō". Besides, katana has no distinct large version; the term actually used to describe large swords in Japan is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%8Cdachi "Odachi" or "Nodachi"]] - as in, "great tachi", referring to the sword that was predecessor of the katana.

Added DiffLines:

* FallingDamage: Fall damage is practically inevitable, given the low threshold of how far a player must fall before the game deems it unsafe. Many routes of the game have you dropping to lower levels multiple times, so being on your last few points of health in a room with enemies is usually ''safer'' than during transit.

* {{BFS}}: The titular Daikatana takes up a third of the screen when you wield it and doesn't kill what you hit; a lethal blow reduces your target to 1 hit point, so you get to finish it off with an extra blow. Its name even literally translates to "big sword", sort of.

* BadassInANiceSuit: In the N64 version, Kage Mishima sports this look instead of the elaborate samurai armor from the PC version.
