With a cozy scimitar equipped and underwater (first time only per fight):
Huh. The scimitar came back with a bunch of scales stuck in the cozy.
- Despite the description, the skill can be used without being underwater.

- You can't use that skill without having a weapon equipped.
- Can be used with ranged weapons.
- The Weapon Power of your off-hand weapon does not affect damage done.
- During fights with multiple opponents the text is modified:

- Three or more opponents:
- You hastily bend your <weapon> into a harpoon, and hurl it at your opponents, skewering three of them and dealing X damage. Then you retrieve it and bend it back into a <weapon>.

- That skill only works underwater.
- In the 2000 Playstation JRPG The Legend of Dragoon, one of the first RPGs to include voice acting, the character Lavitz Slambert shouts "Harpoon!" when utilizing a special ability of the same name during combat. It is used (and therefore the audio is repeated) extremely often, leading it to become a meme within the RPG community.
