The Death Scythe is a large black scythe with a dark grey blade and a head carved to resemble a decaying skull with glowing red eyes.
As its name suggests, it specializes in Dark elemental skills and the Death status effect. It increases the power of Dark elemental spells and has a chance to automatically cast Grim Reaper between turns, as well as casting Death Spike with certain attacks. Both spells have a chance to inflict Instant Death on their targets.
