- Zatōs Creed can be performed while melee is not equipped.
- This is the first stance to change the default quick attack of a melee class into its full basic combo.
- The second-last attack of Heeding Call features a kick of some sort that has a guaranteed ragdoll that can punt an enemy hundreds of meters in a large enough room. It would seem that it utilizes a Puncture Proc.
- Guiding Light has the longest range of all the combos that utilize forward dashes, with a range of around 12 meters.
- The dash distance is not fixed, but has forward momentum; if dashing out into open air, the momentum can carry the player much further than 12 meters. This effect can be triggered by performing the combo on even a small elevation, such as cryogenic ice deposits, or on top of ramps.
- This dash also hits five times.
- The last slash of Destined Path can knock away even heavy units, ragdolling them into flight.
- Blind Justice changes the slide attack as well, featuring a reverse-grip spin attack.
- Guiding Light's dash can be further extended by tapping crouch to slide after the first two melee attacks are executed while sprinting.
- Because of the way charge attacks work, holding when not in the middle of a combo will start Destined Path. In order to perform Windless Cuts, hold after at least the second attack in any combo.
- This stance's combo animations were first seen at Tennolive 2014.
- Blind Justice is the third Nikana Stance, following Tranquil Cleave and Decisive Judgement. It is the only one out of the three that is uncommon.
- The name "Blind Justice" was confirmed by Geoff Crookes to be a nod to the fictional Japanese character Zatoichi, who was a blind swordsman best known for his use of the reverse-grip style of swordsmanship. The name of the first combo Zatōs Creed is a further reference to the name.
- Like Decisive Judgement, Blind Justice changes the weapon's grip during attacks, in this case using a single-hand reverse-grip style of holding the Nikana. Blind Justice is also the only stance that completely changes the weapon's animations, with unique movements for blocking, stealth attacks, counterattack finishers, wall attacks, and idle animations.
- Unlike Tranquil Cleave and Decisive Judgement, which portrays Frost performing the combo, Blind Justice shows Banshee instead.
- Tranquil Cleave, the single-handed stance for Nikanas.
- Decisive Judgement, the two-handed stance for Nikanas.
- Fateful Truth, a PvP-only Nikana stance devised for Conclave.
