The Ice Sword, a recurring piece of Ice equipment.

Ice equipment (アイス, Aisu?) is a recurring type of equipment in the Final Fantasy series. It is often a mid-rank type of armor, obtained directly after flame equipment, with resistance or weakness to either Ice or Fire. This gear has appeared in the forms of body armor, helm, shield, gloves, armlet, sword, rod, knuckles, spear, and bow.

Ice equipment was more commonly found as mid-rank armor in the early installments of the series, which grew into a less common type of weapons. The most recurring appearances of ice equipment are under shields, swords, and rods. The sword of ice equipment is often seen as Icebrand.
