The Mythril Sword in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy.

Mythril equipment (ミスリル, Misuriru?) is a common type of equipment in the series forged from mythril ore into various weapons, armor, and accessories.

The most common mythril equipment pieces are: claws, daggers, swords, spears, axes, hammers, maces, staves, rods, bows, shields, heavy armor, and light armor. The equipment of this type are usually of weak or mediocre power, as are usually obtained either after the first boss, or in the second quarter of the game. This is somewhat odd, as in many fantasy settings Mythril is a very high grade metal.

In some early localizations, mythril equipment has been localized as silver equipment.

This is obtained from the sleeping man in a cave near Junon (reached by taking the buggy across on the cargo ship by driving it into Costa del Sol) when the player talks to him after fighting a number of battles where the last two digits are the same, such as 455 or 311, though both numbers must be odd. The Mythril can be traded for a choice of two boxes, one of which contains a Gold Armlet, while the other contains the Limit Break.

Both can be sold for a small amount, but only the Mythril Sword can be reacquired later as a very rare drop from the Omega Mark XII.

Basch's Mythril Blade plays a small storyline role. Dalan gives the blade to Vaan as a quest item, then called the Sword of the Order, signifying it the traditional weapon of the Knights of Dalmasca. Vaan delivers the blade to a man named "Azelas" in town, who turns out to be Vossler. Vossler passes the sword to Basch, who joins the main party after the cutscene accompanying the delivery, and has the blade equipped. Unique to Basch, cutscenes where he is armed show him wielding the Mythril Blade regardless of what actual weapon he has equipped, while other characters wield their equipped weapons.

Etymology[]

The word "mythril" or "mithril" is a metal found in many fantasy worlds. It was originally introduced by the fantasy writings of J. R. R. Tolkien, being present in his Middle-earth. It resembles silver but is stronger than steel, and much lighter in weight than either. The author first wrote of it in The Lord of the Rings, and it is retrospectively mentioned in the third, revised edition of The Hobbit in 1966. In the first 1937 edition, the mail shirt given to Bilbo is described as being made of "silvered steel". The name mithril comes from two words in Sindarin—mith, meaning "grey" or "mist", and ril meaning "glitter".

Some early games localized "mythril" as "silver." Silver is a chemical element with the chemical symbol Ag and atomic number 47. A soft, white, lustrous transition metal, it possesses the highest electrical conductivity of any element and the highest thermal conductivity of any metal.

Silver often carries connotations of "second-best", especially when contrasted with gold.
