During the Incoronation of T'Challa, Nakia carried Ring Blades as part of her ceremonial outfit, both during the dancing prior to the ceremony and during the incoronation ceremony itself.
Nakia took her Ring Blades when she exiled herself along with Ramonda, Shuri and Everett Ross following Erik Killmonger's victory over T'Challa. She left one Ring Blade to Ramonda so they could defend themselves while she briefly left to see what happened in the City of the Dead.
Having discovered T'Challa's survival, Nakia returned to the Golden City with T'Challa and Shuri. Once in Shuri's Lab, Nakia reclaimed a pair of advanced Ring Blades. Unlike the traditional ones, each weapon was constituted by two rings linked together by a blue energy field.
Nakia wielded her Ring Blades during the Battle of Mount Bashenga. At first, she and Shuri fought against Erik Killmonger himself, and although his Panther Habit enabled him to withstand Nakia's hits, she successfully disarmed him with her Ring Blades. However, Nakia was eventually overpowered and Killmonger threw her away in the middle of the battlefield. During the battle, both before and after the Jabari Tribe came in reinforcements, Nakia used her Ring Blades to take down many soldiers of the Border Tribe who were loyal to Killmonger.
Being made of Vibranium, the Ring Blades are incredibly advanced and useful weapons, being lighter than steel-made weapons, all the while being able to absorb vibrations and being extremely resistant. As such, they could cut through a variety of materials, from solid wood to metal.
The Ring Blades could be adapted into various styles of combat. Nakia had a mixed fighting style, using the Ring Blades as both close-quarter and throwing weapons, which the weapon returning to its owner once thrown at an enemy.
The Ring Blades could also present different designs. Nakia's first Ring Blades, as well as Hale's, were made of a single ring with a handle. However, Nakia also used a pair of double ring weapons, with the larger and the smaller rings of one weapon being connected with a blue energy field.
