Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift description

The Excalibur (エクスカリバー, Ekusukaribā?), also called Excalbur, Xclbr, Excaliber, XCalibr, Twin Excaliburs, and Xcalibr, is a weapon in various games in the series. It is usually one of the most powerful swords, and is often associated with the Holy element. There is also a cheap imitation called the Excalipoor, which Gilgamesh often uses, and an upgrade exists in some games known as Excalibur II.

Appearances Edit

Final Fantasy Edit

Sword crafted from a legendary metal.


The Excalibur is the Knight's ultimate weapon, and the second-strongest sword by virtue of its attack power. It provides 45 Attack and 35 Accuracy. It is acquired by getting the Adamantite from the Flying Fortress and giving it to the Dwarven Smith.

In all versions, the Excalibur counts as being all elements, and does extra damage to every creature type (the same way several weapons deal bonus damage to various creatures, such as the Wyrmkiller's damage bonus vs. dragons), resulting in it being slightly stronger than its already-strong statistics suggest, surpassing even the Masamune in practice.

In the Dawn of Souls release and beyond, the Excalibur is no longer the ultimate knight sword, as the Ragnarok deals better damage (even after the Excalibur's bonuses factored in), and the Ultima Weapon is even stronger than that if the Knight's HP is high enough.

Final Fantasy II Edit

A legendary sword handed down by the dragoons.


The Excalibur is a sword passed down by the Dragoons. It provides 100 Attack, 75% Accuracy, and 16% Evasion. After returning from Castle Palamecia, the party can talk to Elina in Castle Deist and ask her about Dragoons. She will thank the party for allowing her to see Ricard one last time, and hands them the sword. In Pandaemonium, it can also be dropped by the rare Iron Giant.

Final Fantasy III Edit

The Excalibur is found in the forbidden city of Eureka, guarded by the General. It gives a bonus of +5 to every stat and has an Attack of 137.

Final Fantasy IV Edit

Legendary holy sword of the hero.


The Excalibur is one of Cecil's ultimate weapons, providing 120 Attack, 99 Accuracy, and +10 Strength. It is obtained by trading a Rat Tail, found in the Feymarch for some Adamantite in the Adamant Isle Grotto.

The player must give the Adamantite and the Mythgraven Blade (also called Sword of Legend) to Kokkol at his forge in the Underworld, and he will finish making the Excalibur once the Lunar Whale has been acquired. This weapon is metallic.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years Edit

TAY Excalibur

Excalibur is a high-ranked knight sword, providing 120 Attack, 50% Accuracy, +10 Strength, and is Holy-elemental. Cecil receives it after defeating the Dark Knight at the True Moon's Subterrane. It can be equipped by Cecil, Ceodore, and Kain.

Final Fantasy V Edit

Legendary holy sword. Can be used two-handed. Can be used with Spellblade.


The Excalibur provides 110 Attack and +5 Strength. It is one of the legendary Sealed Weapons acquired in the Sealed Castle. It is the sealed greatsword, and has the element of Holy.

Final Fantasy VI Edit

Final Fantasy VII Edit

FFVII KOTR Arthur Model

The Excalibur is used by Arthur, the final knight of the Knights of the Round summon. This was revealed in the Final Fantasy VII Ultimania Omega guide.

Final Fantasy VIII Edit

The Excaliber is one of the weapons Gilgamesh uses when he appears in battle.

The damage formula for Excaliber is:[1]

$ Damage = 100 * Level / 10 + 50 + 100 $
$ Damage = Damage * (265 - TargetSpr) / 8 $
$ Damage = Damage * 50 / 256 $

Final Fantasy IX Edit

Light sword used by holy knights.


The Excalibur is one of Steiner's ultimate weapons. It provides 77 Attack, is Holy-elemental and teaches him Climhazzard.

To obtain it, the player must buy the following four key items from the Treno Auction House:

And sell them to the following people in Treno:

  • Doga's Artifact to the Scholar in the Synthesis Shop.
  • Une's Mirror to the Nobleman outside the Cafe Carta.
  • Griffin's Heart to the Adventurer outside the Cafe Carta.
  • Rat Tail to the Adventurer outside the Cafe Carta.

Afterward, the Magical Fingertip will appear in the Treno Auction during disc 4, and only if the player has already talked to the man in Daguerreo who requests it. The player must buy the Magical Fingertip and give it to the Old Man outside the inn in Daguerreo and he will give the party the Excalibur in exchange.

If the player can get to the final area in Memoria in under 12 hours, they can find an even stronger Excalibur, the Excalibur II, the strongest weapon.

Steiner has the Excalibur as an accessory to his Bring Arts figure.

Final Fantasy X Edit

The Excalibur is one of Tidus's weapons obtained by customizing Break Damage Limit onto a sword. It shares its appearance with the Brotherhood.

Final Fantasy XI Edit

FFXI Excalibur

The Excalibur is the Relic Sword available to Red Mages and Paladins who have reached level 75, and only after having completed an immensely lengthy and expensive quest. This can often take months of time, hundreds of millions of gil, and the full assistance of an entire Linkshell community to obtain difficult Dynamis drop items. With the new Magian weapon upgrade system, the attributes of the Excalibur can be raised to its level 99 Afterglow state.

Though the Excalibur has the highest base damage rating of any sword, it hardly benefits the Red Mage class. Its true prowess comes in the hand of a Paladin, and is showcased in its unique Additional Effect, which takes 25% of the wielder's current HP and converts it into Slashing-type damage. This effect triggers frequently, and can make up for the absence of an entire melee front-line fighter during battle with a High Notorious Monster if the user remains engaged throughout the entire fight.

Though its unique Weaponskill, Knights of Round (sic), is relatively weak, the tremendous damage incurred over time on tougher enemies give Paladins with enough money the incentive to pursue Excalibur. However, due to the excellence of the Ochain and Aegis Shields, and other damage mitigating weapons, such as the Hauteclaire, Burtgang, and Almace swords, Excalibur often ends up as second or third on a Paladin's list of expensive priorities, and therefore not nearly as many opt to make them.

Final Fantasy XII Edit

The Excalibur is the third-strongest greatsword that has an Attack power of 128 and is of the Holy-element. All greatswords have 2.47s charge, and 1.2s action time, making them average when it comes to attacking speed It can be found in the Great Crystal. It requires the Excalibur license for 160 LP. Because the weapon is Holy-elemental, the player can boost its attack power by equipping the White Robes.

In the Zodiac versions, it provides 127 Attack, 25 Evade, 35 CT, 8% combo rate, is Holy-elemental, and requires the Excalibur license for 135 LP. It can be found inside Great Crystal (Crystal Peak), where Ultima is fought, and rarely stolen from Humbaba Mistant in Trial Mode Stage 64 and from Hell Wyrm in Stage 87. It can be equipped by the Knight class.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings Edit

Mythical sword only a true king may wield.


The Excalibur is Basch's strongest weapon acquired after completing Mission 79: Wings of Midnight. It provides +100 Attack, +50 Magick, +60 Speed, and the additional effect of Spread Damage. It uses a generic knightsword sprite during battle.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Edit

Gilgamesh wields the Excalibur against the party in his downloadable content battle and it inflicts physical damage to one target. The sword's design is based on the Excalibur from Final Fantasy IX and the Final Fantasy XIII-2 Ultimania Omega claims Gilgamesh found it from a hidden room in Alexandria.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Edit

The sword of god, which denies evil and returns it to nothingness.


The Excalibur is a sword-type weapon for Lightning available through the Ultimate Savior downloadable style. It raises Strength and Magic by 280 points and has Precise HP Restore +1% auto-ability.

Final Fantasy XIVEdit

Excalibur is the Zodiac Weapon for Paladins. Excalibur is acquired via the quest FFXIV Quest IconHis Dark Materia, by combining reagents acquired from assorted other side quests with a materia created from Curtana Nexus, the final stage of the Paladin's Relic Weapon. Excalibur can then be upgraded to Excalibur Zeta, the most powerful Paladin weapon in A Realm Reborn.

Excalibur and Excalibur Zeta's secondary stats are determined by what the player chose to imbue in their Curtana in the process of upgrading it to Curtana Novus, and can be redone by acquiring and imbuing a new Sphere Scroll: Curtana from Hubairtin in Central Thanalan and presenting it to Jalzahn Daemir in the North Shroud.

Etymology Edit

The Excalibur is King Arthur's sword, the one he obtained from the Lady in the Lake, after the one he pulled from the stone broke. Excalibur itself is thought to be derived from Caladbolg, which in itself may be drawn from the Welsh Caledfwlch, which can be latinised as Caliburnus. The legends state the sword was virtually peerless and only passed to the chosen. However, King Arthur was mortally wounded while wielding the sword by his son, Mordred in the battle of Camlann. Upon his death, it was either Sir Lancelot or Sir Griflet who, after much hesitation about discarding such a powerful sword, returned the Excalibur to the Lady in the Lake.
