FFVI Relm Arrowny Menu iOSRelm: I couldn't miss the chance to practice my drawing!
This article is in need of a few pictures. Perhaps you can help by uploading a picture of the Adaman Sword, Famicom images with black lines on each weapons, remake images with iOS/PSP weapon models and Fire Staff (DS).

Weapons can be equipped on both the left and right hands. When dual-wielding, the attack ratings of each weapon are added together for the overall attack rating of the character.

In the original Famicom version, some elemental weapons are glitched.

  • All Legendary Blacksmith weapons only exist in the remake.

DaggersEdit

FFIII NES Knife Icon

Except thrown weapons, daggers are the only type of weapon that Thieves can equip. As such, most daggers add to the Agility statistic. Additionally, the Red Mage is the only magic-using job that can equip daggers. Black Mages, however, can use Knives and Daggers (the weapons themselves, not the class of weapon), but nothing beyond those two.

StavesEdit

FFIII NES Staff Icon

Staves are the primary weapon of magic-using jobs like White Mage, Devout, and Evoker. As such, they usually add to the Mind statistic. Most staves will cast a spell if used from the "Item" menu during battle. In the Famicom Version, they don't grant any elemental defense because of a glitch.

NunchakuEdit

FFIII NES Nunchuck Icon

Nunchaku are weapons used by Monks. They are relatively weak weapons meant to be used early in the game before the Monk can do more damage with their bare hands. These weapons are only found in the original version of the game, and were removed from the Nintendo DS remake.

Bows and ArrowsEdit

FFIII NES Bow Icon

Bows and arrows are the primary weapons of Rangers and must be equipped separately in the right and left hands. Bows give stat bonuses, while arrows carry the additional effects, like elemental damage and inflicted status ailments. Bows and arrows are effective against enemies weak to Wind.

Since bows and arrows deal the same damage from the back row as they do from the front row, and since the weaker bows are available to Black Mages, the player can equip a Black Mage with a bow and arrows in order to make them a decent physical damage dealer if the need arises. The player can still place the Black Mage in the back row for reduced damage, since the armor available to magic-using jobs does not offer as much physical defense as that available to melee jobs.

BooksEdit

FFIII NES Book Icon

Aside from Onion Knights, who can equip everything except ultimate weapons, only Scholars can equip books. As is to be expected, books give stat bonuses in Intellect and Mind to boost the power of the limited amount of magic Scholars can learn. Books are rare finds, as they can only be found in a few treasure chests and are not sold in Weapon Shops.

HarpsEdit

FFIII NES Harp Icon

Harps are the primary weapons of Bards. They are meant to boost magic rather than attack the enemy. Three of the five harps the Bard uses with Attack command can inflict status ailments at the enemies.

In the Famicom version, the confusion-inflicting Lamia Harp is bugged and won't inflict the status. Moreover, in the NES the sleep-inflicting Dream Harp is nowhere to be found and can only be obtained through the Item Upgrade Glitch.

In the 3D remake version different harps play a different song when using the Sing command.
