Do We Have This One? Needs A Better Title

The sai was originally an agricultural tool, but then became an Improvised Weapon often associated with Ninja.

This is not about some sort of Rhino Man, or characters whose name is "Sai".

Examples:

Anime and Manga

Comic Books

Film
  • The Mummy Returns: a Flashback has a duel between two women Dual Wielding these, which doesn't make sense as sais originated from Asia, not Egypt.
  • The Matrix Reloaded: Neo used his powers to pull two sais off the wall and fight with them during his battle with the Merovingian's minions. He ends up using them to pin one of his assailants to the wall.

    Raphael in TMNT should go in Comics, not WA; or in Comics, WA, Film, and Live Action TV, Videogames, etc.

    While characters with sais don't get enough love, just putting it out there...does anyone think this could be retooled as Chicks Love Sais? A cursory skim through pop culture reveals that nine out of ten times, the female is the one with the sai. What's up with that?

    • Mileena from the Mortal Kombat series fights using a pair of sai.
    • At some point in Xena Warrior Princess continuity, Gabrielle makes a point of fighting with sai. Don't ask me when.

    Looking good. Any objections before I launch?

    (Not as sure about the Guild wars example, since there's nothing special about the sais separating them from other daggers.)

    Otherwise, seems fine by me for a launch (for whatever that's worth.)

Three days must pass before this YKTTW is Launchworthy or Discardable
