Shinobi Prosthetic Tools are special equipment the main character Sekiro can wield in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. The prosthetic arm was crafted by the Sculptor of the Dilapidated Temple, for Sekiro, after he lost his arm in combat.
As you explore the various regions, you may come upon Key Items that can be converted into Prosthetic Tools by the Sculptor. Up to three different tools can be equipped at a time for quick swapping, and each can be used in various ways – not only to damage opponents, but exploit certain weaknesses as well.
In addition, the Sculptor can also help upgrade your Shinobi Prosthetic, in exchange for a certain amount of currency (Sen), and certain upgrade materials found around the world and from defeating enemies.
See the list of known Prosthetic devices below, and for more details – including the location of the tool’s key item, click on a tool for more information.
Once you defeat Gyoubu Oniwa at the end of the Ashina Outskirts, you’ll gain the Mechanical Barrel. This item allows for the Sculptor to further upgrade your Shinobi Tools and unlock new variations of your devices to use in different situations.
All of these upgrades are tiered, and requires a certain amount of Sen as well as additional resources found from enemies or in the world at large. See the lists below for all the upgrades you can get.
