  The gaming world has seen many swords over the years, but some of them have become almost as legendary as the games that gave them to us.

  

  Gaming wouldn’t be the same without our favourite sword-wielders. These characters have been iconic since the beginning and their designs and sword skills have only improved since then. Now, developers are doing things with swords that we never could have imagined 20 or 30 years ago.

  Keyblades are a type of weapon from the Kingdom Hearts franchise. The most well-known Keyblade is the Kingdom Key, which is the protagonist’s (Sora’s) weapon. When you hear someone talk about “The Keyblade,” they usually mean the Kingdom Key.

  The Buster Sword is the iconic weapon wielded by Cloud Strife in Final Fantasy VII. It’s used as a symbol for Final Fantasy VII content because of its truly extraordinary size, making it instantly recognizable.

  As a result, the Buster Sword is seen across a lot of content. Cloud (and Kirby) wields a Buster Sword in the Super Smash Bros. series, and when Cloud appears in Kingdom Hearts, he’s holding his Buster Sword wrapped in bandages.

  Soul Edge Sword being wielded by man in silver armour wearing red cape

  The Soul Edge from Soulcalibur is actually alive and is an antagonist in-and-of-itself. Once upon a time, the Soul Edge was just your average weapon. However, it became demonic when it was bathed in blood — it took on a soul, referred to as ‘Inferno,’ who can control whoever wields this weapon.

  It’s been seen in multiple forms, though it’s most recognizable as a sword. People who do wield it become incredibly strong, but at the cost of constantly having their life drained out of them.

  It’s been known under a number of names: the Sacred Sword, the Sword that Seals the Darkness, the Legendary Sword, and more! But it almost always bears?some variation of that?iconic look: a blue, winged hilt, a long silver blade, and a triforce etched in for good measure.
