The (Excalibur, エクスカリバー?, lit. "Ekusukaribā") is a weapon that appears in various games in the series. It is usually one of the most powerful swords, and is usually associated with the Holy element. There is also a cheap imitation called the Excalipoor, which Gilgamesh often uses, and an upgrade exists in some games known as Excalibur II.
- "Sword crafted from a legendary metal."
The Excalibur is the Knight's ultimate weapon, and the second-strongest sword in the game, by virtue its attack power. It is acquired by getting the Adamantite from the Flying Fortress and giving it to the Dwarven Smith. It provides 45 Attack and 35 Accuracy. In all versions of the game, the Excalibur counts as being all elements, and does extra damage to every creature type (the same way several weapons in the game deal bonus damage to various creatures, such as the Wyrmkiller's damage bonus vs. dragons), resulting in it being slightly stronger than its already-strong statistics suggest. In the Dawn of Souls release and beyond, the Excalibur is no longer the ultimate knight sword, as the Ragnarok deals better damage (even after the Excalibur's bonuses factored in), and the Ultima Weapon is even stronger than that if the Knight's HP is high enough.
- "A legendary sword handed down by the dragoons."
The Excalibur is a sword passed down by the Dragoons. Before the party enters Pandaemonium, they can obtain it by talking to Elina in Castle Deist, when the player asks her about Dragoons, before she, along with her son, leaves the castle. It is the second most powerful sword in the game, the first being the Masamune. It provides 100 Attack, 75% Accuracy, and 16% Evasion.
The Excalibur is found in the forbidden city of Eureka, guarded by the General. It is the 5th strongest sword in the game, with the Ragnarok, Onion Sword, Onion Blade, and Ultima Weapon being stronger. But it does give a bonus of +5 to every stat and has an Attack of 137.
- "Legendary holy sword of the hero."
The Excalibur is one of Cecil's ultimate weapons, obtained by trading a Rat Tail, found in the Feymarch (Land of Summons in the GBA version), for some Adamantite in the Adamant Isle Grotto. The player must give the Adamantite and the Mythgraven Blade (also known as Sword of Legend) to Kokkol at his forge in the Underworld, and he will finish making the Excalibur once the party has been on the Red Moon with the Lunar Whale. Only the Ragnarok, Lightbringer and Flandango are stronger than the Excalibur, but it provides 120 Attack, 99 Accuracy, and +10 Strength.
Cecil receives the Excalibur after he beats the Dark Knight at the True Moon's Subterrane. It is a high-ranked, Holy-elemental Knight Sword. Its stats are largely the same as its Final Fantasy IV version, with the exception of a lower Accuracy at 50%.
- "Legendary holy sword. Can be used two-handed. Can be used with Spellblade."
- "Legendary holy sword."
The Excalibur is one of the ultimate great swords that is dropped by the Goddess. A Holy-elemental sword, provides 217 Attack, +2 Strength and Speed, +1 Magic and Stamina, and +20% Evasion, and enables the Bushido and Runic command. In Final Fantasy VI Advance, Gilgamesh appears as an esper, and can attack with the Excalibur when summoned. It can only be equipped by Celes, Terra, Edgar, and Locke.
The Excalibur is one of the weapons Gilgamesh uses when he appears in battle. It is named Excaliber here, however.
The damage formula for Excaliber is:
- "Light sword used by holy knights."
- Doga's Artifact
- Une's Mirror
- Griffin's Heart
- Rat Tail
And sell them to the following people in Treno:
- Doga's Artifact to the Scholar in the Synthesis Shop.
- Une's Mirror to the Nobleman outside the Cafe Carta.
- Griffin's Heart to the Adventurer outside the Cafe Carta.
- Rat Tail to the Adventurer outside the Cafe Carta.
Afterward, the Magical Fingertip will appear in the Treno Auction, but only during disc 4, and only if the player has already talked to the man in Daguerreo who requests it. The player must buy the Magical Fingertip and give it to the Old Man outside the inn in Daguerreo and he will give the party the Excalibur in exchange. It provides 77 Attack.
If the player can get to the final area in Memoria in under 12 hours, they will be rewarded with an even stronger Excalibur, the Excalibur II, the game's strongest weapon.
Excalibur is a Swordplay ability in Final Fantasy X-2 that attacks with the Holy element. The ability is only usable when a character is using the Warrior dressphere, or with the Pride of the Sword garment grid. Yuna can also use the ability while wearing the Mascot dressphere if she has learned it as a Warrior. All three girls can use it in any other job while equipped with the Sword Lore accessory, as long as they have learned it as a Warrior.
The Excalibur is the Relic Sword of Final Fantasy XI, available only to Level 75+ Red Mages and Paladins after having completed an immensely lengthy and expensive quest (often taking months of time, hundreds of millions of gil, and the full assistance of an entire Linkshell community to obtain difficult Dynamis drop items). Though the Excalibur has the highest base damage rating of any sword in the game, it benefits the Red Mage class very little. Its true prowess comes in the hand of a Paladin, and is showcased in its unique Additional Effect, which takes 25% of the wielder's current HP and converts it into Slashing-type damage. This effect triggers frequently, and can make up for the absence of an entire melee front-line fighter during battle with a Hyper Notorious Monster if the user remains engaged throughout the entire fight. Though its unique Weaponskill Knights of Round [sic] is relatively weak, the tremendous damage incurred over time on tougher enemies give Paladins with enough money the incentive to pursue Excalibur. However, due to the profound excellence of the Aegis Relic Shield and other damage mitigating weapons, such as the Hauteclaire or Burtgang swords, Excalibur often ends up being second or third on a Paladin's list of expensive priorities, and therefore not nearly as many opt to make them.
The Excalibur is the third-strongest greatsword in the game, being trumped by Tournesol and Wyrmhero Blade. It can be found in the Great Crystal, is of the Holy-element, and has an Attack power of 128. It can only be equipped by characters who have learned the Excalibur license on the License Board for 160 LP. Because the weapon is Holy-elemental, the player can boost its attack power by equipping the White Robes.
In the Zodiac Job System version of Final Fantasy XII the Excalibur is found inside Great Crystal - Crystal Peak, the area where the party fights Ultima. It is possible to acquire the Excalibur while still fighting her. Only the Knight class is able to equip it, by unlocking its eponymous license for 135 LP.
- "Mythical sword only a true king may wield."
- —In-game description
Gilgamesh wields the Excalibur against the party in his downloadable content battle and it inflicts physical damage to one target. The sword's design is based on the Excalibur from Final Fantasy IX and the Final Fantasy XIII-2 Ultimania Omega claims that Gilgamesh found it from a hidden room in Alexandria.
- "It is said that only the true heir to the throne can wield this legendary knight's sword."
The Excalibur is Orlandeau's initial weapon. It can absorb Holy-elemented attacks and has Auto-Haste. It can also be found in the fifth floor of the Midlight's Deep with the Treasure Hunter ability. The Excalibur can be duplicated with the Weapon Duplication Bug in the PS1 version.
- "Only the truest of knights may wield this sword."
- —In-game description
The Excalibur is a knight sword infused with the Holy element. It teaches the Paladin Job class the Holy Blade ability. It can also be stolen from Llednar Twem in the final battle with him before he is gone for good. It provides +47 to Attack, +2 to Magic Power, and +1 to Speed.
- "Only a true knight may touch this sword's hilt. The blade isn't half as discriminating."
- —In-game description
The Excalibur reappears as a holy knight sword, providing +48 Attack, +1 Speed, +4 Evasion, and +2 Magick, as well as making the wielder immune to the Holy element. Again, it teaches the Paladin Job class the Holy Blade ability. It can be bought for 5,680 gil in the shop after creating it in the Bazaar after using a High Arcana, Mysidia Alloy, and Crusader Tonic.
The Excalibur is a weapon that a Clavat can wield. It can be forged with the Legendary Weapon Scroll along with the materials Alloy, Orichalcum, and Ancient Potion. Its Focus Attack is Soul Shot, consisting on launching a large energy blast from the tip of the sword, exploding on impact dealing heavy damage at long range.
- "A famous sword that brought countless victories to conquerors who carried it."
Like Crystal Chronicles, Excalibur can be equipped by Clavats, and its scroll is Legendary weapon. The bonus ability of the weapon was to regenerate HP time by time per attacking the monster using the weapon. Its counterpart was Deathbringer.

Excalibur is a high-ranked sword that provides 122 Attack and +5 to Stun. It takes 1 slot and can be used by all races.
Unlike in other Final Fantasy games, the Excalibur cannot be equipped by the player. Instead, the Excalibur, when found, can be used as a Field item to grab and use against monsters temporarily.
The Excalibur is easily Benjamin's strongest weapon, as well as the last one in the entire game he can acquire. It is found in Pazuzu's Tower and has a Battle power of 127. It also increases Speed by 5.
The Excalibur is the hero's strongest weapon. It has an Attack Bonus of +85 and cannot be sold. It is automatically obtained close to the end of the Final Dungeon, making that location the only place it can be used. Equipping it is optional, but it should be known that the Excalibur does massive extra damage to the final boss. Due to space constraints, in the game's English version the sword is known as Xclbr.
The Excalibur is a sword you can find in the Tower after beating Suzaku, the Fiend of Fire. It has extremely high attack power and will damage every enemy in a group with each successful attack. Whilst there is but one of it, the player can recharge its uses with Arcanes. The somewhat-comparable Masamune is a little stronger, but only attacks one foe, whilst the Glass Sword is the game's strongest melee weapon.
The Mystic Sword Excalibur is a sword pulled out of the stone by Faye. It is the strongest of the four Mystic Swords at +170 (+150 Cyborg HP) and the second most powerful weapon overall, after the ironically named Defence sword. Like the other Mystic Swords, it deals Mystic-elemental damage which causes extra damage to bosses and does not cause Physical damage, avoiding late-game resistances. Despite its power, it is the only mandatory Mystic Sword, as it must be shown to King Clamin to gain access to the Underworld. It can also be used to convince Masa to join the crew of the Talon.
Excalibur appears as a weapon in Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light as the strongest sword. Excalibur has a default Attack power of 20 and can be randomly found in a 90F chest in the extra dungeons.

The Excalibur is a level 99 sword and one of the three strongest swords in the game. It increases Attack by 67 and increases base Bravery by 50% at the start of a battle. It is also one of Gilgamesh's summon effects, which, if used, triples the user's Bravery in an instant. The Excalibur II also appears as a Level 99 sword and grants double EXP as well as +67 Attack.
Gilgamesh also appears in this game as a summon and can use Excalibur as his ability. When summoned, he will use either Excalipoor or Excalibur. Excalipoor reduces the player's Bravery to one. However, if he uses Excalibur, the player's Bravery is tripled.
Excalibur appears as one of Gilgamesh's eight weapons, used randomly when he attacks and in his EX Mode. When used, it doubles the Bravery damage done by Gilgamesh's attacks. In Gilgamesh's EX Burst, Strongest sword, the Excalibur rotates surrounded by seven Excalipoors, and the player must pick the Excalibur to execute the burst perfectly, Gilgamesh performing a series of four powerful attacks and ending the EX Burst with Ultimate Illusion.
Gilgamesh also reappears as a summon and operates in the same manner, meaning Excalibur can be the ability he uses when summoned.
The Excalibur is available as a weapon in this game and is obtainable through an event battle with Gilgamesh.
The Excalibur is King Arthur's sword, the one he obtained from the Lady in the Lake, after the one he pulled from the stone broke. Excalibur itself is thought to be derived from Caladbolg.It is also said in the legends to be able to cut through any thing and is also said to be the strongest sword ever because of it.
