Final Fantasy XI[]

Sunblade is a Greatsword usable at level 75 by Paladins and Dark Knights. It has damage 70 and delay 466. It is obtained via Trial of the Magians, by upgrading a Break Blade by defeating Bloodpool Vorax 3 times with the Break Blade equipped (this is trial 216).

By completing trial 217 (defeat the Golden Bat 3 times with the Sunblade equipped), it may be augmented with an Attack +3 bonus. By completing trial 218 (defeat the leech Notorious Monster Slippery Sucker 3 times with the Sunblade equipped) the attack augment may be increased to +5. By completing trial 219 (defeat Seww the Squidlimbed 4 times with the Sunblade equipped), the Sunblade may be upgraded to Albion, which via many arduous further trials may eventually become either the Empyrean Weapon Caladbolg or the "coin weapon" Xiphias which is used to learn the weapon skill Torcleaver.

On the other hand, if the player completes trial 224 (defeat 400 experience-yielding plantoid monsters with Sunblade equipped) instead of trial 219, Sunblade will become a Salamand Sword instead; this can eventually be upgraded to the multi-attacking Fulgurante.

The Sun Blade is likely inspired by the Sword of the Sun, from the 1968 Toei anime film The Great Adventure of Horus, Prince of the Sun.
