Frills are for dresses, not swords. A practical sword for practical swordsmen.
The Defender (ディフェンダー or 守りの剣, Difendā or Mamori no Ken?), also called Defend and Defense, is a recurring knight sword in several Final Fantasy games. It usually raises the user's Defense stat or helps protect them in some way.
A sword that casts Blink when used.
The Defender is not as powerful as Excalibur or Masamune, but it casts Blink when used as an item in battle. It is usable by the Knight, Ninja, and Red Wizard jobs, and provides 30 Attack and 35 Accuracy. It is found in the Waterfall Cavern.
Due to the critical hit bug found in the original versions of Final Fantasy, the Defense sword is technically the most powerful weapon available to the Red Wizard, assuming the Masamune is given to a different character. Although the Red Wizard can also use the Sun Sword—which has slightly higher attack power—the Defense sword's high critical rate will ensure it inflicts a greater degree of damage per hit.
A sword made for defense.
The Defender is a greatsword that can be used by most Knight classes. It is bought at the Ancient Ruins and Invincible (NES version only) for 16,500 gil and is found in the Temple of Time. It casts Protect when used as an item in battle and provides 95 Attack and 5 Vitality when equipped.
Sword infused with defensive power.
The Defender is a greatsword for Cecil and Kain. It is found in a monster-in-a-box chest on the third floor of the Passage of the Eidolons. It provides 105 Attack, 40 Accuracy, +15 Defense, and casts Protect when used as an item. This weapon is metallic.
In the Easy Type version, it was renamed to Sword of Protection.
In the 3D versions, it has an attack power of 105 with an accuracy of 90 with the same properties as the 2D versions. It can be equipped by Dark Knight Cecil and Golbez if hacked into the party.
Blade that sometimes parries enemy attacks. Can be used two-handed. Can be used with Spellblade.

The Defender has an Attack power of 91, and also grants an Evasion rating of 35, making it the second most evasive weapon in the game, eclipsed only by the Wyrmhero Blade that has a rating of 50. The Defender's combo rate, however, is only 5%, less than that of an average greatsword. All greatswords have 2.47s charge, and 1.2s action time, making them average what it comes to attacking speed. The Defender can only be equipped by characters with the Greatsword 2 license.

Unadorned, practical sword.
The Defender is a knightsword that may be equipped by the Templar, Defender, and Paladin classes. It is one of the weaker and most common knightswords, being only a plain steel blue blade with no defining features. It can be obtained from Cyril for 4,000 gil and any other town for 4,500 gil.
