Fruit Ninja:

When using this blade, the fruit would hover in midair for a brief moment before falling. This power could be useful to score large combos, although there is not a long time before the fruits fall down, so it can be a bit tricky without proper accuracy.

Now, this blade's power is being re-worked.

Fruit Ninja Classic:

Fruit hang briefly at the top of their arcs.

Fruit Ninja 2:

Currently, this blade has no power.

Its upcoming ability will be called Fruit Flutter.
