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.


ZaCross Whip - Manga

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 ablility 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.

  • 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.
