Guillotine Fist is always Neutral , and therefore will always be reduced by Raydric cards. Due to this as well, users do not equip Elemental weapons for Guillotine. It is, perhaps, crucial that the device was never associated wholly with any one single group, and that Robespierre himself was guillotined, enabling the machine to rise above petty party politics, and establish itself as an arbiter of some higher justice.
Had the guillotine been seen as the tool of a group who became hated, then the guillotine might have been rejected, but by staying almost neutral it lasted, and became its own thing. Historians have debated whether The Terror would have been possible without the guillotine, and its widespread reputation as a humane, advanced, and altogether revolutionary piece of equipment. Although water and gunpowder laid behind much of the slaughter, the guillotine was a focal point: did the population accept this new, clinical, and merciless machine as their own, welcoming its common standards when they might have balked at mass hangings and separate, weapon based, beheadings?
Given the size and death toll of other European incidents within the same decade, this might be unlikely; but whatever the situation, la guillotine had become known across Europe within only a few years of its invention. The history of the guillotine does not end with the French Revolution.
Many other countries adopted the machine, including Belgium, Greece, Switzerland, Sweden and some German states; French colonialism also helped to export the device abroad. Indeed, France continued to use, and improve upon, the guillotine for at least another century.
Leon Berger, a carpenter and executioner's assistant, made a number of refinements in the early 's. These included springs to cushion the falling parts presumably repeated use of the earlier design could damage the infrastructure , as well as a new release mechanism. The Berger design became the new standard for all French guillotines.
Roch's successor had the screen swiftly removed. Public executions continued in France until , when Eugene Weidmann became the last 'open-air' victim. It had thus taken nearly one hundred and fifty years for the practice to comply with Guillotin's original wishes, and be hidden from the public eye.
Although the machine's use had gradually fallen after the revolution, executions in Hitler 's Europe rose to a level that neared, if not exceeded, that of The Terror. The death penalty was abolished in France that same year. There have been many methods of execution used in Europe, including the mainstay of hanging and the more recent firing squad, but none have quite the lasting reputation or imagery as the guillotine, a machine which continues to provoke fascination.
The guillotine's creation is often blurred into the, almost immediate, period of its most famous use and the machine has become the most characteristic element of the French Revolution. Indeed, although the history of decapitation machines stretches back at least eight hundred years, often involving constructions that were almost identical to the guillotine, it is this later device which dominates. It is also shown in the movie Hostel as part of a torture museum that Paxton and his friends go to on their fateful holiday to Slovakia.
