The Prince acquirers the Fish Gutter when trying to free Kaileenia from the Viziers henchmen. His comment "Why is it that every time distaster strikes, I find myself without a proper blade?" is a comical referrence to the previous games where he continually loses his sword somehow and has to find a new weapon to use. The Prince loses this weapon when he recklessly charged towards the Vizier in a fruitless attempt to save Kaileena. When the Daggertail caught the Prince's arm and slammed him into a stone wall, the Fish Gutter went flying in a random direction.
