…Because everyone knows that the best weapon in Secret of Mana is the whip, and not that stupid Mana Sword.
…And Kirby whips a whole bunch of things in the new trailer for Kirby’s Epic Yarn. He whips them with yarn.
Look, I don’t know what you want from me. I play Secret of Mana a lot, and whenever I play it, I always use the whip. Therefore, the absolute first thing that comes to mind when I think of videogame whips is Secret of Mana. There’s no way this blog post could’ve gone without referencing the classic SNES action-RPG in some way.
JUST WATCH THE GODDAMN VIDEO, OK?!
Also, yes: Secret of Mana is the first game I think of when I think about videogame whips, and not anything else.
