Nidai Kitetsu is a moderately curved katana with a light purple edge and a distinct blue hamon that has the appearance of flames. Its tsuba is gold and shaped like a rounded cross pattée. The hilt is wrapped purple.
The sheath of the sword has a deep purple and pale purple stripe and continues the design of the hilt, having two gold clasps in short succession around its middle which is a white wrapping, and the kojiri end cap also being gold.
Little is known about Nidai Kitetsu's capabilities. However, it is powerful enough to become of the twenty-one Ō Wazamono katanas in the world, on par with Wado Ichimonji and Shusui, and only surpassed by the 12 Saijō Ō Wazamono katanas.

It had been in the possession of Hitetsu until Luffy borrowed it when he took Tama to a doctor. Upon seeing it, Roronoa Zoro became interested and repeatedly requested Luffy to let him see it up close. The opportunity, however, never came as Luffy and Zoro were forced to face Basil Hawkins, in which Luffy casually threw aside the sheath (much to Zoro's chagrin) in preparation to fight (in which he simply threw a punch with the sword in hand) and then being immersed in conversation with Tama.
After Luffy was defeated by Kaido, Nidai Kitetsu was not seen with him afterwards, leaving its location unknown.
- It seems from their names and classifications, the Kitetsu were made weaker with each new sword. Nidai Kitetsu was the second to be made. It is graded in the O Wazamono making it the middle of the three swords in terms of strength.
- The handle is shaped in the exact same style as Sandai Kitetsu.
- Its samegawa was colored blue on the cover of Shonen Jump 2018 Issue 47, but was later shown to be purple on the cover of Volume 91 and on the cover of Shonen Jump 2019 Issue 17.
