The Bashosen takes the form of Jet the Hawk's signature twin weapons, the Bashōsens, which are said to have razor-sharp edges.
In gameplay, the Bashosen can only be obtained at random from Item Boxes by Jet. As with most other Items, Metal Sonic can also use the Bashosen if he uses the Steal Item to steal it from the aforementioned user.
When used, the user sets loose two Bashōsens that twirl around each other while they travel down the lane they were deployed on. As they move forward, the Bashosen will pass through any obstacle or enemy until it wears off. In addition, the Bashosen will leave behind a green trail while moving that will slow down those that touch it. The fans deal damage on a direct hit. Upon dealing damage, it will also steal some of the victims' Rings and add them to the user's own Ring count. Players also have a chance to find two Bashosens in an Item Box instead of one if their level is at least 6, and three Bashosens at level 12.
