The Hard Winter is an Axe Sword available to Lexaeus in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. It can be upgraded to Hard Winter+.

Design[edit]

The Hard Winter's handle is red and has a pale yellow spike set in its pommel. Its blade is comprised of a wide, curved, sky blue piece of metal and two smaller, silver ones, all folded over each other. The counterweight has a similar design, being comprised of two pieces of metal that curve in the same direction as the blade, one sky blue and one silver, folded over each other. Because of the way the blade and counterweight curve, there is a circular gap in the middle of the weapon, just above the handle.

A "hard" winter is particularly cold and difficult to endure. In Japan, a "heavy snowfall area" is a place with long, heavy snowfalls. It is more poetically referred to as a "snow country".

Gameplay[edit]

The Hard Winter's ground combo starts with a slow, one-handed upward slash, followed by an identical, but much quicker upward slash. Lexaeus then leaps into the air while performing a two-handed upward slash, and the combo ends with a powerful, two-handed downward slam.

The aerial combo consists of a two-handed upward slash followed by a powerful, two-handed downward slam.
