The Fair Helianthus is a Scythe that can be wielded by Marluxia in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. It can be upgraded to the Fair Helianthus+.

Design[edit]

The Fair Helianthus has a curved, dark green handle with a small, black section near its base and a flat, silver pommel. Its blade is rather large, but only slightly curved. Its upper edge is lined by two large spikes. The shaft of the blade has a small, oval-shaped notch taken out of either of its sides near its base. The edges of the Scythe's blade are bronze, the shaft is navy blue, and the rest of the blade is tan.

Helianthus is a genus of flowers that notably includes the sunflower. In Greek mythology, a nymph named Clytie fell in love with the embodiment of the Sun, Helios, the namesake of the Helianthus genus. She died of grief when her feelings were rejected and became a sunflower, and sunflowers have come to represent devotion because of this. Sunflowers also represent light, hope, and innocence; they are viewed in many cultures as symbols of power. "Fair" here means "beautiful" or "alluring".

Gameplay[edit]

The Fair Helianthus's ground combo begins with a powerful, 360-degree spin close to the ground. The next stage of the attack consists a slash to the right, a slash to the left, and then another slash to the right. The ground combo concludes with an angled, 360-degree spinning attack that is performed in mid-air.

The Fair Helianthus's aerial combo is much simpler and consists of a right-to-left slash; it ends with an angled, 360-degree slash.
