The Hyperion is an Axe Sword that can be wielded by Lexaeus in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. It can be upgraded to Hyperion+.

Design[edit]

The Hyperion's handle is red with a pale yellow spike in its pommel and a sky blue spike on its tip. The blade and counterweight are in one piece on this Axe Sword, a result of the weapon's peculiar shape. The Hyperion is shaped like a backward “S” that goes through the spike on the tip of the handle, curls over it—creating the counterweight—and then abruptly widens and curves in the opposite direction, creating the blade. The weapon is equally colored in blue and white, and the edges are mostly blue. The outer edge of both the counterweight and the blade is lined by blue spikes of varying sizes.

The Hyperion's name is taken from Seifer's Gunblade in Final Fantasy VIII, similar to the eponymous Gummi Ship in Kingdom Hearts. In turn, the name Hyperion is taken from the Titan of the sun in Greek mythology, who is also the namesake for a moon of Saturn, and an incomplete poem by John Keats.

Gameplay[edit]

The Hyperion's ground combo starts with a quick, one-handed thrust that resembles a guard or block-like motion, followed by a one-handed upward diagonal slash. A very quick upward slash follows this and the combo ends with a powerful, two-handed downward slam.

The aerial combo consists of two two-handed upward slashes followed by a one-handed sideways slash.
