        Weapon stories for both Virtuous swords/greatswords and Cruel blood oath swords/greatswords imply the romantic ties between 2b and 9s, as each story is told from the other's perspective.

          What do all these cruel and virtuous weapons really mean? The cruel and virtuous spears both reference father and brother Nier, respectively, so aside from 2B, who else is being referenced by the entries in these weapons?
