Appearances[edit | edit source]

Final Fantasy IV[edit | edit source]

Shadowblade (Sword of Darkness in the Easy Type version) is the second weapon available for Dark Knight Cecil, and provides 20 Attack and 35 Accuracy. This weapon is metallic. It can be found in the Antlion's Den, Underground Waterway or in a hidden chest inside the Sealed Cave in the releases prior to Final Fantasy Chronicles.

In the 3D versions, it has an attack power of 20 with an Accuracy of 90 with the same properties as the 2D versions. Dark Knight Cecil can equip it, and if Golbez is hacked into the party, he'll be able to equip it as well.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years[edit | edit source]

Shadowblade is a dummied weapon that would have provided 20 Attack and be Dark-elemental, and would have been usable by Dark Kain.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

A shadow is an area where direct light from a light source cannot reach due to obstruction by an object. It occupies all of the space behind an opaque object with light in front of it. To go with the light and dark theme of Final Fantasy IV, Shadowblade is associated with Dark Knight Cecil, Golbez, and Dark Kain.
