I'm not the kind of person who demands realism everywhere, but a "typical scythe" is a pretty shitty melee weapon and should really only come into play in settings where the tone is by no means particularly realistic.

In many settings, magic is based off of mythology. The more history / belief you can throw behind something, the stronger it is.

Yeah, and you'll notice how a hook is about the shittist possible shape for hurting somebody with, because that pointy bit you wanna get them with is pointing the wrong way, and you either need to go out then back in to get them with the edge, which KILLS your momentum, or go with a full swing, which is predictable as fuck, leaves you open before and behind your windup, and takes up a lot of space.

You could wing that straight-on at somebody's neck, and it'd act more or less like a warpick. Try that with either of the others and you'd slap them with the flat outer edge.

But it's horrible for hooking. A good hook should be able to ensnare and hold the target in place. Scythes don't hold anything because their blades don't curve enough and there's nothing protuding at the bottom to allow for pushing either. I can't even lock something with a Scythe because when I twist it, it just spins with no leverage on the target.

Except, as you seem to be unable to understand, with most swings the blade WON'T so much as scratch them, and even when the blade proper does connect you've wasted your energy on a shitty swing and it's not going to have anywhere near the cutting power of a more direct method.
"Getting hit by a heavier stick" means jack shit other than that you've tired yourself out more for no more benefit than whacking him with the blunt end of a spear.

a scythe is longer, why would you get a foot away from the tentacle beast dumbass, you could as well kill 40 more plant monsters a swing with a scythe, the hook keep the excess plant beasts from just being moved aside, they are instead moved towards the blade, you know like fucking wheat.

...but it's still a blade on the end of a handle, or shaft if you will - I'm not talking about the nifty little handles for reaping, I'm talking about the part that holds the blade. The effective range is at a specific distance because the blade is set so far out, so all you have to do to avoid getting hit is move in closer to the wielder, where shorter weapons like a sword or mace and tear shit right the fuck up, where the pointy bits of the scythe can't really get at without awkwardly adjusting the grip, at which point you'd already be dead.

That it's magic doesn't mean SHIT if you can't hit someone with it. A scythe carries a lot more inherent disadvantages even compared to other pole-arms, since at least they have specialized uses that are better for more than cutting wheat. And given the existence of magical scythes, there would also be magic swords/axes/maces/ect. they would all be better for the same reasons they'd be better in real life, unless scythes somehow have a shape that enhances enchantments or something.

It's a kami-saga - attacking end looks like a sickle so it can be hidden amongst farming tools, chain used for wrapping around the weapon most nobles used for personal defence (i.e. swords) to stop them being used.

It's an assassin's weapon and every bit of it is functional.

...except for the hand guard, fuck that thing.

Most humans, ever, create very similar weapons (and even fighting styles). I've always found this fascinating. There's a simple reason why we do this. We're all the same platform; two arms, two legs, two eyes, lots of weak points.
