Shortwings[1] are Russel Thrush's weapon of choice. They are seen in action in "Extracurricular", during his team's brief bout against Pyrrha Nikos.


Shortwings appear to be a pair of short, curved daggers with a revolving chamber or other cylindrical mechanism built into the hilt of each dagger. The chambers appear to contain Dust, in a configuration reminiscent of Weiss Schnee's Myrtenaster. The colors include red, blue, yellow, green, and white.

However, despite appearances, Shortwings does not appear to use any special features, using the Daggers almost solely as melee weapons. During the practice match with Pyrrha, he is also shown throwing one dagger.


  • A shortwing is any member of a group of colorful, mostly insectivorous birds in the genus Brachypteryx of the thrush family Turdidae.
