As anyone who reads Kaidara's Blade is aware, there is this very cool character named Vinelle, who I think it rather interesting and (as far as I can tell) quite original. He's an elf swordsman who was trained in the arts of ninjustu in Valhalla. He fights with two kodachi that are chained together at the hilt. Now, I'm certainly not accusing Hasbro of stealing my character, or even getting their inspiration from my story, but I thought it was pretty odd. They're both Ullar ninja who have two medium-length, one-handed, single-edged blades. Moriko's special attack allows her to strike multiple times, while Vinelle's fighting style leads to the same.
Coincidences aside, I think we can learn a little bit from this. People are criticizing Moriko for being weak, but I think it's important to see where she'll excel. In Kaidara's Blade, Vinelle fights first against a group of orcs, then against Night Stag. So, transferring their similarities, we can see the Moriko is also...
