Holy swords (聖剣, Seiken?), also called sacred sword, mystic sword, and legendary sword, is a group of weapons from the Final Fantasy series. Paladin or similar classes use them. The best-known holy sword is the Excalibur.

They are usually Holy-elemental weapons, and their counterparts are the dark swords. Where the holy swords category does not appear in games, its recurring swords are sometimes classified as either regular swords or knight swords.

A sword is a blade weapon used primarily for cutting or thrusting. The precise definition of the term varies with the historical epoch or the geographical region under consideration. A sword in the most narrow sense consists of a straight blade with two edges and a hilt. However, in nearly every case, the term may also be used to refer to weapons with a single edge (backsword).
