THANATOS-9 Confirmed Set
- It takes 3 seconds to activate the Thanatos form and also 3 seconds in contrast.
- When being used, the Thanatos form lasts for 5 seconds. After that, it will change back into normal mode automatically. In addition, the user won't be able to swap weapons while performing the attack.
- The attack delay for each slash (normal mode) is 0.5 seconds.
- The Thanatos form is ideal for rushing and does not revert to the base form by itself, unless if the user triggers the blades or reverts it to the base form by him/herself.
- Its 360-degree swing, however, does not affect walls and breakable objects.
- If a player got attacked from behind with it's 360° swing, sometimes the player will die instantly (counted as backstab).
- Zombie Infection
- With a boost of 200% and using Deadly Shot in Zombie Hero mode, THANATOS-9 is capable of killing a powerful origin zombie (14000HP) under 5 seconds if properly used.
- Its stun power in B mode is low, so the zombies can still have chance to infect the user even while him/her is attacked.
- B mode is very effective to against Deimos/Ganymede.
- In B mode, THANATOS-9 can deal 60,000 damage to bosses (provided the firepower has been maxed).
- It is very good in destroying obstacles, especially in B mode.

- The A mode's animation is similar to SKULL-9.
- This is the first melee weapon that can perform a 360-degree swing (primary attack) in Counter-Strike Online.
- During the first release, there was a bug where the kill icon used Seal knife instead. This bug was fixed in later updates.
- The HUD icon wasn't replaced as well; placeholders were used instead of its own.
- It shares the same wall impact sound with the Nata Knife in base form whereas in Thanatos form it is changed to that of the Tomahawk's.
- It also uses Wakizashi's hit sound.
- The word "THANATOS-IX" is printed on the weapon's handle.
- The alternative swing animation actually matches with its third person's in contrast with SKULL-9, Green Dragon Blade and JANUS-9.
- This is the first melee weapon to ever feature more than one wielding animation for both first and third person.
- This is the second melee weapon which can glow in the dark during Thanatos form. The first one being Beam Sword.
- When a round ends and you use the B-mode of THANATOS-9, you will hear its stabbing sound non-stop until the next round or the wielder engages the Thanatos Blade System (same as M134 Minigun bug). This also applies for spectator mode.
- Unlike the SKULL-9, Green Dragon Blade and Wakizashi, the THANATOS-9 is unable to perform the bug-hit.
- There is a bug that sometimes the user's hands in first-person view is invisible while wielding the THANATOS-9, this also happens in spectator mode as well with the Magnum Drill.
- There's also a bug when a player dies while using the Thanatos Blade System, the hits will be executed anyway.
