Chikage (千景 Chikage lit. "A Thousand Views") is a katana-like sword in Bloodborne. There are 3 versions of this weapon: Normal, Uncanny and Lost. The only known differences being the Gem Imprints and the locations in which they are found


Chikage Description

"Foreign-made weapon wielded by the royal guards who protect Annalise, Queen of the Vilebloods at Cainhurst Castle.
When the intricate, rippled engraving that spans the Chikage's blade is imbrued with blood, the sword sings in scarlet hues.
However, the rite eats away at the wielder's very essence."



Chikage Information

  • Transforms from a sword to a two-handed 'imbrued with blood' sword.
  • The Normal variant of the Chikage is best for those who wish to use the sword in both modes.
  • The Uncanny variant of the Chikage can be used as an alternative to the normal version, but elemental damage commonly found on waning gems is wasted on this weapon.
  • The Lost variant of the Chikage is the best for those who wish to maximize damage in the transformed mode, as circular gems that boost blood attack are typically exclusive for firearms. Beware though that in transformed mode, thrusts attacks deal physical damage and therefore do not benefit from the circular gem boost at all and also scale on skill and strength instead of bloodtinge (see "player notes" for more details and video link).




Uncanny Chikage

  • Cursed and Defiled Root Chalice - Fetid/Rotted/Cursed (unknown whether you need these offerings)
  • Glyphs: 7h87j4h7 (Layer 1), xy8abwm9 (Layer 2), div596ff (Layer 2)

Lost Chikage


Player Notes

  • Cannot be buffed with Fire Paper, Bolt Paper, or Empty Phantasm Shell.
  • Chikage inflicts Rapid Poison buildup with its attacks whilst transformed (two-handed).
  • Chikage deals Physical damage in its untransformed state, and primarily Blood damage whilst transformed.
    • Damage whilst untransformed (one-handed) scales with Skill (B) and Strength (E).
    • Damage whilst transformed (two-handed) scales with Bloodtinge (S).
      • Thrust attacks whilst transformed (two-handed) deal Thrust damage, utilizing physical scaling (Skill & Strength).
    • Blood gems boosting physical attack will boost Chikage's blood attack.
  • Whilst transformed (two-handed), the Chikage steadily drains (approximately) 0.85% HP/s from the player.
    • The player can be killed by Chikage's HP drain.
    • In the event that the player is killed while Chikage is in its transformed state, the weapon will remain in its transformed state upon respawn. 
  • When transforming from the weapon's one-handed state - while the sword is sheathed - pressing R1 or R2 will initiate a unique quick-draw attack into its two-handed state.
  • The transformed (two-handed) R2 attack drains 200 to 400 HP from the user, depending on the duration of charge.
    • This drain can be alleviated somewhat by performing the R2 attack during transformation (as described above), reducing the amount of HP drained, and shortening the duration for a full charge.
  • Enemies that can be knocked down by a firearm (dogs, spiders, etc.) will be knocked down by the transformed state of this weapon, due to the Blood damage that it deals.
  • Provides a means of killing yourself, in order to reset your world, reset your Blood Vial & Quicksilver Bullet counts without returning to Hunter's Dream, or to rid yourself of the intense shame accrued from constantly correcting FextraLife wiki pages.

Move sets & Videos

Results from testing on an unarmored level 120 character with a +10 Chikage with no gems. Numbers are rounded to the nearest 100th.

Regular Move Set

Move Damage Type & Modifier Stamina Effect
R1 Combo physical atk1x, 1x, 1.05x, 1.10x, 1.10x (5 hit combo) 23 A relatively quick flurry of slashes. The first slash is on a downward diagonal from right to left, followed by an upward diagonal from left to right, an upward diagonal from right to left, horizontal from left to right, a horizontal from right to left (that drifts somewhat down). If you have stamina to continue at this point, the series repeats starting with the second attack. If you can get an enemy caught in this series, this is a great combo to just not let up on.
Quickstep R1 physical atk1.05x (frontstep), 1.10x (sidestep) 30 There are separate moves for each direction, albeit two are very nearly the same. Stepping to the right leads to a right to left downward diagonal attack. Moving left is a left to right horizontal slash that drifts upward slightly. Moving back or forward leads to a mostly vertical slice from the ground to overhead. The windup is shorter on the front step, as the back moves forward a greater distance before attacking.
Backstep R1 physical atk1.00x 30 A horizontal slash from right to left after a short hop forward.
Dash R1 physical atk1.10x 30 (+run) Right to left horizontal slash with a slight downward trending path. This attack and the backstep can be relied on for crowd control (as best is possible with this weapon).
R2 Attack thrust1.27x 40 A thrusting attack straight forward after a short pause.
Charged R2 thrust1.85x 60 After extending the windup of the R2 by drawing the blade further behind the back, the blade is stabbed forward and down.
Backstep R2 physical atk1.25x 50 The sword is raised overhead and brought straight down into the ground.
Dash R2 thrust1.17x 50 (+run) A surprisingly quick forward thrust caps off this running attack. Very useful for getting a quick strike in.
Leap physical atk1.45x 50 The sword is placed on the right shoulder during the leap and slashed into the ground vertically.
Transform Attack physical atk1.42x 35 (+x) The sword is sheathed and brought out in a slashing attack from left to right with a downward diagonal. This is the move, regardless of the prior action.

Transformed Move Set

Move Damage Type & Modifier Stamina Effect
R1 Combo physical atk0.95x, 0.98x, 1x, 1.02x, 1.07x 25 This combo is very similar to the normal mode R1 combo, except the sword is used with both hands. There are slight variations to angle (most prominent with upward diagonal slashes) but the attacks are roughly the same and in the exact same order.
Quickstep R1 physical atk1x (frontstep), 1.04x (sidestep) 35 As with the R1 combo, the moveset is the same as the regular mode, except the weapon is used with both hands.
Backstep R1 physical atk1.02x 35 Another small change of angle here. The regular mode drifts slightly up with it's horizontal slash, while this attack does not.
Dash R1 physical atk1.17x 40 (+run) A nearly vertical downward slash, that travels somewhat from right to left.
R2 Attack physical atk1.50x 55 The sword is sheathed and the attack is from the draw. It is from left to right on an upward diagonal. This is accompanied with a quick loss of health.
Charged R2 physical atk2.25x, 1.92 (follow-up) 60 The animation starts similarly to the standard R2 with the weapon being sheathed. However, the sword is drawn up and then down and to the right. The health loss is the same as the R2, as it occurs during the initial sheathing process. The additional windup time has no effect or increased health loss.
Backstep R2 physical atk1.29x 60 The blade is raised overhead as the hunter hops back. The left hand comes off the handle and touches the back of the blade, then snaps back to the handle to bring the weapon down vertically into the ground.
Dash R2 thrust1.15x 60 (+run) An even faster forward thrust than the standard mode attack. Deals thrust damage scaling on physical stats, not bloodtinge.
L2 thrust1.15x, 1.27x 55 The sword is cocked back with the blade parallel to the ground. The left hand comes up near the tip and the weapon is thrust forward. This thrust deals physical damage scaling on skill and strength instead of bloodtinge. A second attack is a downward diagonal slash from left to right. this one deal blood damage and scales on bloodtinge.
Leap physical atk1.47x 60 Another move very similar to the standard form. The strike is more diagonal (from right to left) than its counterpart but also slashes into the ground.
Transform Attack physical atk0.95x 20 (+x) A quick left to right slash that throws the blood from the blade and reverting the weapon back to regular mode.
  • R1: Vertical slashes.
  • R2: Forward Thrust R2 (transformed): Quick-draw Slash.
  • L1: Coats the blade with blood, inflicting a constant 0.85%HP/s debuff, and switches your damage type to "Blood" and inflicts Rapid Poison, which comes with an increased scaling bonus. The weapon will be kept in the sheath for a couple of seconds and the first R1 attack in this time will inflict double damage.




  • The Chikage is an allusion to a particular 'breed' of Katanas in the Souls games. While it is similar to both the Hiltless and Chaos Blade from Demon's Souls and Dark Souls respectively, the Chikage bears a stronger resemblance to the Magic Sword "Makoto" (also from Demon's Souls); the Makoto is the only one the bunch to actually drain the user's HP over time, rather than draining it with successful hits.
  • The Chikage is is a hybrid of Japanese and European curved sword designs, leaving it somewhere between a Katana and Saber. One can assume this is because Cainhurst knights modified the "foreign-made" weapon to better fit design practices they were accustomed to.
  • The name Chikage officially translates as 千景 (Thousand Views), but can be interpreted in other ways:
    • chi = 千 (1000),  血 (blood)
    • kage = 景 (view, vista),  or 影 (shadow)
    • 千景 - "A Thousand Views", 千影 - "A Thousand Shadows"
    • 血景 - "Vision of Blood", 血影 - "Blood Shadow"
  • The transformation attack has the hunter sheathe the Chikage before unleashing a quick-draw swipe. This is Iaijutsu, a traditional Japanese sword technique focused on quickly drawing one's sword.
  • The sword is likely a tribute to Chikage Yamamura. He is credited under the "Special Thanks" of the game's credits. With the addition of the Old Hunters DLC, Yamamura is also referenced with the NPC, Old Hunter Yamamura, who wields a Chikage.

      Hot take: this thing sucks. Bad spacing and clunky moveset and the untransformed mode is worthless. The transformed blood attack is some of the best but requires ridiculous farming to get the out of shape gems.

          All I can say is, Careful with cursed gems that have the durability curse. The 120 Durability gets eaten alive in normal play. I cleared a quarter of the snake half forbidden woods with 1 gem that had -56 durability and it was broken. Deff one you don't wanna keep the durability curse with.

            Can we talk about the absolute cheese this weapon is against certain enemies? Whatever can be stunned by 1 quicksilver bullet will be stunlocked by this weapon's transformed state for as long as your stamina bar lasts. Bleed kicks in the lasts hits just to add salt in the wound

              Great weapon, but sometimes if you try to L1+R2 charge too quickly it wont register and you will just get slaughtered while you’re standing there. Its weird, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt. On PS5 tried it with multiple controllers, same issue. May be an issue with the adaptive triggers, either way its very annoying and frustrating

              • I made an account just for this. Whoever the **** put the glyphs for the chalice dungeons in for lost chikage deserves nothing but eternal suffering. Just ****ing search for 9nhuevvz after killing the first two bosses in the first chalice. Just wasted 3 ****ing days trying to progress enough to do that ****.

                  Am I the only one who thinks it makes no sense for the translated name to be "1000 views"? "Blood Shadow" seems like it has much more of a correlation than that considering how it's literally a weapon coated in blood. It'd make a helluva lot more sense to use sen/senbon if they were referring to a thousand of something

                    9nheuvvz. A lost chikage is in the bonus room before the lamp. You only need Pthumeru root chalice for this.

                      To me it’s just looks like a cross between a sabre and a katana, but considering the technique is iaido apparently I think it’s fine to say it’s more katana like, like if it’s 60% katana it’s just easier to call it a katana, and from isn’t exactly known for getting their weapon names right with the types

                        Warning! Compared to all other weapons I think the Chikage has pretty low durability. after some small testing in the Hunter's Nightmare Clinic, one hit took one durability point out of 120. NOT one kill, ONE HIT. so be careful cuz I had this thing die on me mid Ludwig battle and had to kill him with a +3 Saw Cleaver because of it... Still a badass weapon tho ngl :p

                          Are dirty gems on this weapon worth it? I never used this weapon before and I like the inniate Rapid Poison but I would like to know If I should Focus on the normal damage or Poison buildup. I don't want anything crazy like the bloodattack damage gems, just some fun.

                              I thought I’d hate this when I first started playing, but it’s easily one of my favorites. Yeah the damage is great, but that’s not why. It has a weirdly engaging, well…engage/disengage mechanic. Transforming and immediately attacking when there’s an opening, then backing off and untransforming to save your health. It was oddly satisfying.

                                  Can someone tell me, if when he hit normal with this weapon it is purely physical, that is, if I have it at +10, does it hit only 184, or does it also add 184 blood? and when it is transformed it only hits 184 blood + the points you have in bloodtinge?

                                    People have compared it to a katana, to karabela, to polish sabres, etc.

                                    I think the Chikage most closely resembles a Gunto, specifically those used in the war between Russia and Japan. Katana blade but with a more standard european-styled hilt.

                                    Lore wise, it makes some sense as well. Maria was given a Russian VA (although she is from cainhurst, or descended from cainhurst) a war is, among many things, a place where cultural exchange happens. Something like the chikage could've been created in a place like Cainhurst, with outside influence from a place like Japan.

                                    I'm rambling a little at this point, but to keep it brief, it looks like a gunto, utilizes iaido techniques, and originates from a place that has vague connections to the Russo-Japanese war.

                                    Possible influence?

                                      It might not be atrue katana, but sure as hell it utilizes the laijutsu a lot for it's transformed state.

                                      • Outrageous damage even with less than top gear bloodtinge gems. BROKEN with those 31.5 blood tinge gems. Yes those are rare but even the more common ones are just busted as hell.

                                        • Chikage has always saved my back. I was fighting Ludwig with his holy blade and failing, finally saying I give up switched to the chikage first try killed him.

                                            Final verdict since everyone is debating this and I want to clear this up for the amateur sword experts.

                                            The Chikage:
                                            It’s a katana/kilij hybrid. The Kilij is a Eastern European Sabre most notably used by Hungarian and Romanian knights fighting for Vlad Tepes during the wars with the Ottoman Empire.

                                            The blade IS a classic Japanese katana blade fitted in a Romanian Kilij pommel and grip. Simple. It makes sense Cainhurst would modify the grip/pommel considering they’re canonically inspired by mysterious carpathian royalty like the court of Vlad Tepes and his brother Radu (who betrayed him to the Ottomans) and the Kilij is a similar blade design yet you can also see how the grooved katana blade would be more suited to Cainhurst for their love of blood magic. Such a cool design and East meets West in the most epic way.

And i'm using mainly the Uncanny Burial Blade as a Main Weapon... However my question is , can i have the Chikage as an alternative 2nd weapon slot. ( But my Bloodtinge is only at 20 , and my Skill is at 40 ). So is the Chikage viable with this way , or do i need more Bloodtinge than my Skill attribute ? My Bloodtinge & Strength is at 20 base now... I'm only having 50 Vitality with 40 Skill with my BL 100 Hunter ( With just 20 Bloodtinge is Chikage +10 good or not ? ).

                                                  So yeah stop denies that it's not a katana and may the power of eldritch gods and anime be with you

                                                    My theory is that merchant/trader from the far east travel to Cainhurst Castle and offers the katana to Queen Annalise. She accepted the offers but she distastes the traditional handle and guard of the katana. Cainhurst then modifies the handle and the guard so the katana will be fit with the Queen's tastes in the weapons design.

                                                                • Anonymous

Already has an "s" in blood scaling, so while scaling does increase damage, I didn't see as much damage for slotting a +65 Blood scaling blood gem for more flat damage. Keep in mind it's 2020, and the most active player ranges now seem to be about 90-110, so I played it safe with 50 vitality, 20 endurance, 50 bloodtinge build so I could hover at level 102.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                          • Anonymous

Always end the enemy with L1 to revert to regular form. Example: i'm fighting the executioner in forbidden woods. I dodge his attack then press L1+R1 then a few R1's and end him with an L1 during the attack reverting back to normal. This way if increase speed, reduce health drained and land rapid poison hits. BEWARE of heavy enemies capable of out poising you or knocking you back as this will increase the health drain.

That transform attack can nearly if not 1 shot people in pvp

It wrecks bosses super hard, feels like other pve weapons with beast pellet (stronger than ludwig holy blade in some bosses, eg ludwig, because of the attack speed of chikage)
