The shining sword of legend...? Seems a little underpowered, but talk about legendary handling!
—Description, Final Fantasy Explorers.

The Excalipoor (エクスカリパー, Ekusukaripā?), sometimes called the Excailbur, the Excalipur, the Excalipar, or the Caliburn, is a sword in many Final Fantasy games. It is usually related to Gilgamesh. Often confused with the Excalibur, it deals just 1 damage. In spite of this, its stats are relatively high, and as such, the game will equip it to a character when selecting the optimize equipment function.


Final Fantasy IVEdit

Legendary holy sword.

Excalipoor is obtained in the PSP and GBA (where it is known as Caliburn) remakes after completing Cecil Harvey's Lunar Trial with two mistakes. The sword has only +1 Attack, +25 Accuracy, and does very low damage instead of only 1 HP. This weapon is metallic.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

Legendary holy sword...? Can be used two-handed.

Excalipoor is dropped by Gilgamesh after he is defeated. Despite having no use, the Excalipoor has 99% Accuracy and cannot be sold.

Final Fantasy VEdit

Legendary holy sword...? Can be used two-handed.

The Excalipoor is a sword wielded by Gilgamesh, who has confused it with the Excalibur. When he uses it in battle, he is seen by Exdeath, who banishes him to the Void for his incompetence. After his defeat, Excalipoor can be equipped to a character. Though its Battle Power is high, it always deals 1 damage, and it never misses. It is thus useful when fighting the Skull Eater enemy to AP grind, who has high evasion but only 1 HP.

It can also be equipped to do high damage with Goblin Punch, which deals damage based on the equipped weapon similar to the Attack command, but does not include the code causing Excalipoor to deal only 1 damage. In addition, it is a powerful weapon when thrown in battle, often dealing 9999 damage to a single enemy.

Final Fantasy VIEdit

Legendary holy sword...?

The Excalipoor appears only in the Advance version. It can be bought in the Jidoor Auction House, for 500,000 gil. It has an attack power of 1, and enables the Bushido and Runic commands. If it is bet in the Dragon's Neck Colosseum, the player will battle against an Onion Dasher for a Merit Award.

Win or lose, Gilgamesh challenges the party to a fight for the Excalipoor. If he loses, he becomes an esper. When his Magicite is used in battle, Gilgamesh is summoned and will execute one of four attacks at random. One of these is the Excalipoor, which deals damage worth 1 HP.

Final Fantasy VIIIEdit

The Excalipoor is one of the weapons wielded by Gilgamesh.

Final Fantasy IXEdit

If the party reaches the Excalibur II in time, they will find a note from Enkido. The note makes reference to a Brother Gil, and how the person who wrote the note found both the Excalibur II and the Excalipur. Thinking that Gilgamesh would like Excalibur II, he sent it to Memoria and took the Excalipur instead.

Final Fantasy XIEdit

Excalipoor could be purchased for 500 login points during the May 2015 Login Campaign. It is a sword with a DMG stat of 1 and a Delay of 240. Purchasing two Excalipoors and synergizing them together produces Excalipoor II, which has a DMG stat of 2, Delay of 233, and exclusive access to the Knights of Rotund weapon skill, a joke version of the Knights of Round weapon skill.

Final Fantasy XIIEdit

The Excalipoor is a weapon exclusive to the International Zodiac Job System. As usual, it is a greatsword with an Attack power of 1. The player receives it from Montblanc for completing the Gilgamesh hunt. Useful for poaching weak enemies at high levels.

Final Fantasy TacticsEdit

Forged in memory of the legendary sword Excalibur. Although only a replica, this sword is extremely sharp, and has served a goodly number of adventurers.

One of the Artefacts obtained from an Errand is the Excalipoor. There is another similar spoof for the sword Ragnarok, Nagrarock. This one, however, is usable in battle and is hilariously useful for inflicting Toad on striking.

Dissidia Final FantasyEdit

The Excalipoor is a level 99 sword and the strongest sword, having an Attack increase of 68. However, it also has the effect of "Physical Damage -100%" while leaving magical attacks fully effective. It is also one of Gilgamesh's summon effects, which, if used, drops the user's Bravery to 1.

Dissidia 012 Final FantasyEdit

Excalipoor is one of Gilgamesh's eight weapons, used at random when he attacks and when he enters EX Mode. When used, all Bravery damage is reduced to 1. In Gilgamesh's EX Burst, Ultimate Illusion, failing to pick out the true Excalibur from a set of eight swords including seven Excalipoors results in the burst doing only one point of Bravery damage over a series of four hits.

It is also still present as an effect of the Gilgamesh summon and as an equippable weapon, with its stats identical to its previous appearance.

Final Fantasy All the BravestEdit

Though it has betrayed many masters, this blade is still coveted for its power.

Excalipoor grants +1 to Attack. It can be equipped by Knight, Mystic Knight, Cecil, Bartz, Cloud, Squall, Seifer, Steiner, and Vaan.

Final Fantasy Record KeeperEdit

The Excalipoor was given out as an April Fool's Day 2016 gag-gift. It is a Rank 5 sword weapon and its stats across all levels are 1 ATK, DEF, MAG, RES, and MND, 95 ACC, and 0 EVA. It has no bonus ability, grants 3,780 equipment upgrading points, and is worth 10,000 gil. It is the only weapon whose stats do not change as it levels up.

The katakana エクスカリパー (Ekusukaripā?) derives from the Japanese katakana form of the word "Excalibur" (エクスカリバー, Ekusukaribā?), replacing the dakuten on the (ba?) with a handakuten for (pa?). Therefore "Excalipur" would be an appropriate localization.

The localized name "Excalipoor" adds a pun with the word "poor". "Poor" reflects its nature as an especially weak weapon.


  • Excalipoor was once called Caliburn in the Game Boy Advance version of Final Fantasy IV. In some versions of Arthurian legend, Caliburn and Excalibur are the same sword; however, in most, King Arthur received Caliburn, the Sword in the Stone, as a boy and Excalibur was given to him by the Lady of the Lake.
