Gains strength as the wielder runs from battle. Can be used with Spellblade.
Chicken Knife (チキンナイフ, Chikin Naifu?) is a recurring weapon in the series. It usually coexists with a Brave Blade, and is usually the opposite of it. The Chicken Knife can usually be used by any class or character.
Chicken Knife is the strongest knife, and can potentially become stronger than even Ragnarok if the player runs away 255 times (as a sword, the Ragnarok only benefits from Strength, while the Chicken Knife benefits from both Strength and Agility). The Chicken Knife has 127 Attack; it grants +5 Speed; and when attacking with it, it has a 25% chance of making the party run automatically from the fight. Commands other than Attack, such as Rapid Fire and Mug, bypass the auto-running trait.
The Chicken Knife can be found in Moore in the merged world, and the player has to choose between it or the Brave Blade. The player must head to the left of the inn and go as far as possible, then go down, to two barrels in a line next to a tree. The player should then head in front of the barrels and descend into the small building and into the woods. In the woods the directions are: down, right, down, left, up, right, down. On the last direction, the party will freeze and the screen will go fuzzy, then two boxes and an old man will appear. He tells the player to pick a box, one with the Chicken Knife, and one with the Brave Blade.
If the player chooses the Chicken Knife, the man turns into a skeleton and walks away while making chicken sounds. He doesn't make chicken sounds in the Japanese text–instead, he has an unusual laugh. Why this was changed into clucking noises in the localized version is unknown.
Chicken Knife is a dagger usable by Lv. 58 Thieves, which has the additional effect of Flee which doubles movement when against monsters with higher levels than the wielder. It has an Attack Power of 21.

The Chicken Knife is one of the eight weapons that can be randomly wielded by Gilgamesh when he attacks. The damage the Chicken Knife does is based on his current health percentage. When his health is lower, the Chicken Knife does more damage. It emits a clucking sound when used and chicken graphics appear when the attack connects.
