- Soul Taker: A katana that has the ability to take the souls of opponents.
Tatsu is a very strict and serious individual. With an intense character defined by a silent fierceness that matches Diana Prince's own.
She is a fastidious sort who takes discipline to heart. Feeling that an able mind is befitting of an apt body. Often taking the time to hone one's acumen as often as training the body.
She used to be extremely unforgiving towards the criminally corrupt as well..
At one time believing it was a hero's duty to punish and avenge the crimes placated by the wicked, to the most extreme of degrees. This narrow mindset also made her a little naive, as Katana once mistook the Super Hero Girls for villains after having dispatched most of Metropolis's criminals.
This train of thought was further emboldened by the feeble means in which the reviled, decadent souls are handled by law enforcement.
- Katana is the only second-generation character whose hero appearance is based on her first-generation counterpart.
