The Blood Berry (ブラッド・ベリー) is a fictional weapon in the 2007 video game No More Heroes. It is a seemingly primitive beam katana model that Travis Touchdown obtained his through an online auction, and is a trademark weapon only seen with him, along with the Tsubaki MK-III. The name likely comes from Travis' love of the anime Pure White Lover Bizarre Jelly, as the show's main character names are Strawberry, Blueberry, and Cranberry, and may also metaphorically refer to Travis' starting days as a hitman, since winning the Blood Berry, started Travis's career. When activated, the frame of the Blood Berry is extracted along with the blade, and the receiver is headed by a blade attachment in the form of a pointed spike. The Blood Berry is one beam katana that cannot function properly without a receiver, and so this blade attachment allows the beam katana to penetrate matter it normally cannot by having a standard, dull receiver. The Blood Berry is also the only recognized beam katana to contain a guide bar in its design.
