Blade Appearance
  • Kousetsu's first owner, Itabeoka Kousetsusai, was a pacifist and a devout Buddhist, which explains his garb and his disdain towards fighting.
  • Itabeoka Kousetsusai was a retainer of Houjou Ujimasa and then of Toyotomi Hideyoshi after the former's defeat at the Siege of Odawara. Kousetsu was presented to Toyotomi as a gift, and then, after Toyotomi's death, went on to serve Tokugawa Ieyasu.
  • The sword that Tokugawa Yorinobu carried with him during the Siege of Osaka is Kousetsu.
  • Later, Kousetsu was presented to the Kishuu branch of the Tokugawa family.
  • Designated as a National Treasure at 1932, and redesignated as part of the new National Treasures at 1951.
  • Despite stating that he doesn't like fighting, almost ironically, his in-game status is among the top; at maxed Toku, his Impact stat is second after Shokudaikiri Mitsutada, Impulse shares first place with Ichigo Hitofuri, and his total stats are second place out of all Tachis.
  • He is often portrayed to be a flower enthusiast of some sort, in relation to his Internal Affair costume.
  • He is the 'Ice' part of another name for the Rarity-4 Tachis: Ice Royal Milk Tea. Sometimes also referred to as the Queen of said quartet.
