How do you lock a blade? As far as I remember, Raiden picked up his sword and it flashed the ID lock after Sam fight. Really? I could understand if it was stuck in the sheath and it couldn't be removed but...
I have a hard time getting past the fact that the blade, because its locked, can't cut anything. Only thing I can think of is that the HF property can be turned off/on. Story mechanic?
There are plenty of ways. DNA coding, voice lock, vital signs... Without the vibration mechanism a HF blade is just a blade. Raiden wouldn't use it even if it wasn't locked most likely but even if he wanted to steal it his regular blade would be far more effective. --- Frank Zappa is God. Fact. King of Heroes, do you have enough swords?!
I assume the lock was on the HF function, without HF the blade would have been as useful to Raiden as a stick. --- I won't have it! I'm not having anyone talk about me in the past tense! ~Squall Leonhart
As everyone said the HF part would not work but I am pretty sure it could cut and damage just the same, but I did invision the deflating like a ballon because the ID didn't match, I was tears laughing about that image which made the next level harder than it needed to be
Because High Frequency swords have a special motor in them that vibrates it really fast in order to cut through things. Without that it still is a good sword but noneffective for cyborgs. --- Look at you, soaring through the air like an bird... Piloting a blimp.
It locks the High Frequency function, which makes it a normal sword that isn't that effective against cyborgs. --- http://i.minus.com/ihaX9zIN6K6Gf.gif http://i.minus.com/ibvrUFGBr5KrgF.gif Come to the board in my profile for random discussion. Though mainly anime.
