The super-shuriken (八方手裏剣 Happō shuriken) is a thrown weapon. Unlike the traditional shuriken, which is a star-shaped projectile, this variant is actually comprised eight smaller, pointed pieces of metal that are thrown simultaneously. It is impossible to actually "aim" this weapon; the wielder simply throws it at his/her opponent. What it lacks in accuracy it compensates for in damage. It will severly wound an enemy, and the eight smaller projectiles expand outward, covering a wider area.
