The Heavenly Dragon Naginata (天龍薙刀 Tenryuu Naginata?, Halberd of the Dragon of Heaven) is the weapon used by Momiji in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge.


Quoted directly from the game--

The Heavenly Dragon Naginata is a "Shizuka" type naginata weapon used by the Dragon Shrine Maidens. This sacred relic was carved from the tailbone of a dragon, making it surprisingly light, flexible, and powerful, allowing attacks that are impossible for a normal naginata to perform.

  • While faster than Hayabusa's slower weapons, it is hard to use when surrounded by enemies, but double jump attacks make up for it, as well as the naginata's technique the Izuna Falcon.
