Flametongue-ffxii

The Flametongue in Final Fantasy XII.

True to its flame, this sword wavers and dances like the voracious flames of a fire.

The Flametongue (フレイムタン, Fureimutan?), also known as Flameblade (炎の剣, Honoo no Ken?) or Fire Sword, is a recurring weapon in the Final Fantasy series. It is usually found mid-game and is almost always Fire-elemental. Its stats are often close to, if not the same as, those of the Icebrand, Flametongue's Ice-elemental "counterpart", and both swords are usually found around the same point. Thunder Blade or Coral Sword sometimes appear as the Lightning-elemental equivalent to Flametongue and Icebrand.
