It's stated to now be an UnbreakableWeapon capable of channeling his considerable magical power without any limit and is classified as a Mythical/God-class weapon, the absolute highest tier.

It's not quite clear whether hihi'irokane was an ore or an alloy, except that it was apparently a common metal in ancient times, with many important objects (including the [[TheImperialRegalia Imperial Regalia of Japan]]) said to be made from it. In fiction, hihi'irokane is generally depicted as a form of {{Unobtanium}} which is harder than diamond, resistant or immune to rust, an excellent conductor of heat (or even a ''generator'' of heat), and an even better conductor of [[SoulPower souls]], [[EmotionalPowers emotions]] or spiritual energy. Due to its similarities to {{Orichalcum}}, in FantasyKitchenSink settings they are often compared to each other or even considered to be the same thing. Sometimes it is instead depicted as [[{{Demythtification}} a mythologized version of stainless steel]], particularly that with chromium sourced from red-yellow minerals such as [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crocoite crocoite]].

Hihi'irokane (sometimes [[SpellMyNameWithAnS spelled with a g instead of a k]]) is a legendary Japanese metal said to shine brightly in a way that resembles flames. Its name translates roughly as [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Flame-Colored Metal" or "Brilliant Scarlet Metal"]].[[note]]Many metals in Japanese can be referred to by color-based names, including Red Metal (copper), White Metal (silver or platinum) and Black Metal (iron).[[/note]] English translations often render the name as "scarlet steel" or "scarletite", as was famously used in VideoGame/FinalFantasy.

* In ''Literature/{{Renegades}}'', though never referred to as such, the metal that Nova's father could create from [[PowerOfCreation pure energy]] has many qualities of hihi'irokane, including reddish colour, being nigh-indestructible and channelling prodigious power. Among others, Ace Anarchy's helmet, which serves as his AmplifierArtifact, is made from it.
