The Poor Melissa has a curved, green handle with a small, pale gold section at its base and a flat, purple pommel. The front blade of the Scythe curves downward slightly and has a circular section taken out of it near the shaft. The back blade is much shorter and curves upward slightly. The weapon’s whole blade is lilac-colored with purple edges. The base of its shaft is pale gold. This Scythe and the Fickle Erica are nearly identical to each other, but have different color schemes.
"Melissa" is a small genus of flowers. "Poor" can have several meanings, including "pitiful", "of low quality", or "with little or no possessions".
When Marluxia has the Poor Melissa equipped, his ground combo is comprised of two forward slashes, a spinning of the Scythe, and then a rounded slash. His aerial combo is comprised of an upward slash, finishing with Marluxia spinning twice in a circle with the Poor Melissa.
