Wilt and Blush[1] are Adam Taurus' weapons of choice. They are a fusion between Wilt, a red-colored traditional Japanese chokutō, and Blush, a rifle that also functions as a scabbard.

DescriptionEdit

Blush serves as a sheath for Wilt, and Wilt itself can be shot hilt-first out of the barrel. When Wilt is unsheathed, Blush's stock becomes more angular and shorter while the barrel extends, holding a greater resemblance to an actual rifle. Wilt's blade is red and is roughly average in length.

While Blush's stock is a dark red, the rest of its components are gray. The stock itself is rather long when compared to the rest of the firearm. The side of the forestock is decorated with Adam's "Wilt" logo. As Wilt covers and blocks the barrel of Blush, Blush is unable to fire normally until Wilt is unsheathed. Adam was able to fire seven rounds from Blush without reloading during the "Black" Trailer.

Although small and seemingly lightweight, Blush's component is capable of automatic fire, and Wilt is used in Iaijutsu style (quickly drawing the sword for a strike and then sheathing it again). The range of Blush is subject to debate; while, like any firearm, it should be capable of firing at a variety of distances, Adam only seems to fire it from a point-blank or close range.

An example of Wilt trailing fire

Wilt has been shown to be capable of trailing fire when Adam swings it. The first time it is seen doing this is during the "Black" Trailer.

Adam uses Wilt in conjunction with his Semblance, both in blocking attacks and executing his Semblance's offensive move.

TriviaEdit

  • Monty Oum has stated that his design for Wilt and Blush was based on Kagura's sword from the anime series Ga-Rei: Zero.[2]

    Screenshots from Shane Newville's Vine

    Adam and his weapon underwent a character re-design sometime during the development of the "Black" Trailer. In behind-the-scenes footage released by RWBY animator Shane Newville on his Vine account, an earlier version of Wilt can be seen: It had a black blade that glowed gold when making a strike that trailed fire, and was carried diagonally across his back rather than at his side.
