Not to be confused with the Item Box power-up, Bashosen.

The Bashōsen (バショウセン Bashōsen?, lit. "Banana palm fan")[1] are Jet the Hawk's main weapons in the Sonic Riders series. Jet uses the main one in his left hand and an auxiliary one in his right in Sonic Riders.


The Bashōsen are made up of large green feathers with red wooden handles.

Game appearances

Sonic Riders

In Sonic Riders, Jet has to be at least level 2 to be able use them. At that level he takes out one Bashōsen and wields it to disorient his foe. At level 3 Jet takes out the secondary fan and uses it in his off-hand to create a twister-like attack to stun the foe for an even longer amount of time.

Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity

In Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity Jet only has one Bashōsen that he uses when he gets an Attack item.


  • In Sonic and the Black Knight Jet's counterpart Sir Lamorak uses dual swords that are inspired by the Bashōsen.
  • The Bashōsen is an item from the Chinese epic Journey to the West. It is one of the five treasured tools owned by the two demon brothers; Kinkaku-daiō and Ginkaku-daiō.
  • Fitting with its name, Jet's fans bear a resemblance to banana plants.
