The ZaCross Whip gathering power during Zakuro's attack sequence.

The ZaCross Whip (ザクロスホイップ, Zakurosu Hoippu) is what Mew Zakuro uses as her main weapon. It was unnamed in the manga but the name of the weapon was only mentioned in episode 26 of the anime.

Appearance

The ZaCross Whip in the 1st Manga series.

Zakuro's weapon is a small, light purple stick with golden indentations and a glowing pink heart. In the heart in the middle of the golden part has Ichigo's Mew Mark. When in use, the golden indentations rotate until it's horizontal, creating a cross-shaped weapon.

In Mew Mew Power, the cross part of the weapon is edited out making it baton-shaped.

In the manga, the ZaCross Whip is a plain, cross-shaped object with no detail that has the ability to stretch out into a whip. The weapon stays cross-shaped, even before using it to attack. In A la Mode, the weapon gets changed to the anime version's design.

Name Changes (Manga)

The manga itself didn't directly say Mew Zakuro's weapon name, only being shown in extra materials and merchandise given as freebies with Nakayoshi magazine. TokyoPop dropped the pun altogether. In Tokyo Mew Mew 2020 Re-Turn the ZaCross Whip was given a 2nd attack.

Name Changes (Anime)

Due to the confusion in the pun, no known dub of the anime has attempted to properly translate Mew Zakuro's weapon and attack name. Most uncut dubs drop the "cross" part of the pun, while others come up with their own weapon and attack names. 4Kids didn't give her an attack name. They also never stated her weapon name in the anime, only revealing it in promotional materials. Because of this, some dubs that came from the 4Kids version never gave her a weapon or attack name.

Trivia

Censorship.png

  • Due to censorship, 4Kids Entertainment edited the attack sequence and overall appearance of the weapon to no longer have a cross shape.
  • In the English dub Mew Mew Power, the weapon is called a Purple Dagger.
  • The name of the Weapon is suppose to be a pun, combining the Japanese katakana spellings of Zakuro and Cross (kurosu), thus making Zakurosu (Zacross).
  • Some translators use an alternate form of spelling of her weapon, which is spelt Zakuross.
  • The ZaCross Whip, when it is cross-shaped, symbolizes that Zakuro is a Christian.
