As one of the Sajio O Wazamono Meitos, Shodai Kitetsu is one of the most powerful weapons ever created, being the strongest of the Kitetsu swords, on par with Mihawk's Yoru and Whitebeard's Murakumogiri.
Like all of the swords crafted by Kitetsu, this one is said to be cursed, and will bring a horrible death upon to all of its owners.
- It seems from their names and classification, the Kitetsu were made weaker with each new sword. Being the highest grade of the three swords, Shodai Kitetsu is the strongest of all the Kitetsu swords. Its name also indicates it was the first of the three to be made.
