Ive been observant, and I've noticed that Egg Shen has a sword on his sash. And to me, it doesn't make sense that he NEVER uses it, even in his epic moves! I'm wondering, why have a sword if you don't use it? In the epic move where he sticks the spear in the ground and slides on top of it, I think it would look way more awesome if he used his sword there instead of kicking the opponent. Who's with me?

Same for Ratbeard, he has a gun he never uses...

To tell the truth, I never noticed he had one - good catch! His spear, though is his primary weapon, it would be better if KI just removed the sword instead of adding extra animation. Either way, that's a ton of work.

There are a lot of characters who have swords they don't use, to name two are the

Royal Guard: it's more like a heavy dagger but it's still never used

Monquistadors: the melee ones all have swords as tall as them

In some cases this would be cool but some weapons are just for looks

For me, I think it's cooler that he doesn't use it. I mean, how cool do you have to be to have a sword, and just choose not to use it? That is the official sign of an awesome person. Or goose, in this case.

I noticed recently that Bat Masterson also has a gun when I was doing his promotion
