A mace is a blunt weapon, a type of club or virge that uses a heavy head on the end of a handle to deliver powerful blows. A mace typically consists of a strong, heavy, wooden or metal shaft, often reinforced with metal, featuring a head made of stone, copper, bronze, iron, or steel. The length of maces can vary considerably. The maces of foot soldiers were usually quite short (two or three feet, or seventy to ninety centimetres). The maces of cavalrymen were longer and thus better suited for blows delivered from horseback. Two-handed maces could be even larger. In fiction maces can reach gigantic proportions and used to display the wielder's brute strength, as such is usually the weapon of choice of brutish characters.
In Gameplay Edit
It's the main weapon of Uzumushi in Revenge of Zen. In gameplay is not much different from his previous flail, as he swings the weapon's end to strike or jump and land on the ball end to crush enemies under him. While his attacks with this weapon are slow, they can cause a lot of damage, and any strike will be staggering if blocked.
