- "Two wangs are better than one"
- —Lo Wang, after using the Heart in Classic.
Heart, also known as Ripper Heart (Classic) or Demon Heart (2013), is a special weapon appearing in Shadow Warrior Classic and its expansions, Wanton Destruction and Twin Dragon. The weapon returns in Shadow Warrior (2013).
Heart is dropped by Ripper (hence the name), Baby Rippers and their stronger variants. When squeezed, a ghostly copy of Lo Wang appears, equipped with a Rail Gun. The copy wanders around the nearby area and kills any enemy he detects with his Rail Gun shots, that are deadly accurate. Lo Wang can hold up to 5 Hearts at one time.
In the reboot, Hearts are dropped by lesser demons and Demon Bunnies (hence the name change). The Hearts effect was changed, now instead killing any lesser demons and stunning stronger ones. The demons will grab their chest, as if experiencing an heart attack and then proceed to die. The player can hold only one Demon Heart at any given time.
Ripper Heart is good for clearing out rooms full of enemies or when facing a boss.
Demon Heart is useful when clearing out areas full of enemies.
