Because the designer wanted it to have them? Because it looks cool? Honestly, there is no rhyme or reason to designing mecha, you just get an idea and just go with the flow (or, at least, thats how I design).

i know that, but the kit comes with it, but it never seen it used. which got me thinking, is it's really a fan beam sword, or the kit was trying to make it look like the beam saber spining, cuz in the V kits, they had curved beam sabers like it was slashing.

the box art and manual art doesn't shows the V holding it or using it.

Just curious, what are you guys referring to? I love Victory and all, but I have no idea what you're talking about.

The only thing that comes to mind is the beam (heat?) fan of the Mobile SUMO, from Turn-A.

Several of Zanscare MS armed with beam fan, beam saber with fan shape. (I guess this inspired by Chineese "iron fan" weapon.) And IIRC, V Gundam also has fan-like beam saber with long pole (at least it has that in several SRW and Hexa has it in SD Generation F).
