Icebrand (アイスブランド, Aisuburando?), also known as Ice Brand, Ice Sword, and Blizzard, is a sword found in many of the Final Fantasy games. It is part of the Ice equipments, which can inflict Ice elemental damage with physical attacks and/or with a chance to auto-cast the Blizzard spell with each attack. Its stats are often close to, if not the same as the Flametongue, Icebrand's Fire-elemental "counterpart" and both swords are usually found around the same point. Icebrand is often a bit stronger than the Flametongue. Thunder Blade or Coral Sword at times appears as the Lightning-elemental counterpart to the two.
