Hidden Effect

Suppresses "Overload"

  • The Overload suppression is not absolute, but it is extremely difficult to Overload with the weapon equipped. Up to 15 consecutive, identical maneuvers can be spammed every 10 seconds without an Overload. This largely enhances the usage of Flame Holder and Ice Maker attachments as well as freely doubling up on any particular maneuver to achieve a desired effect. Tripling Maneuvers also bears little consequence if done responsibly.

Historical Information


The very devices that claimed the eye of Balrahn, these ringed fist weapons are said to have been donned by the minion of an evil puppeteer. A vivid and detailed retelling of this encounter came to have a most profound effect upon an impressionable Jalzahn.


Kenkonken may refer to a Chakram of great power wielded in Taoist mythology, Naraku (JP) or Nezha (CN). Nezha is a mythological figure who is often depict as a young handsome boy wearing clothes similar to a lotus since he was reincarnated from a lotus. He has 2 wheels with flames attached to his feet and golden ankle rings. The Japanese Wikipedia article[1] citing the weapon needs further translation for complete historical information.

Additionally, the Kenkonken may be a reference to the Martial Arts style Sorinjiryu Kenkokan Karate, a unique blend of Okinawan kobudo and Shorinji Ryū Karate, Japanese aikijujutsu, judo, kenjutsu, and Chinese bājíquán. This particular martial arts style innovated the Karate style by allowing its students to train fully with weapons and protective equipment to test their techniques without having to hold back.
