The Orichalcum (オリハルコン, Oriharukon?), also known as Orichalcon, Orialcon, Orichal Dagger, Orichaldagger, or Orichalcum Dirk, is a recurring dagger in the Final Fantasy series. In its appearances, it varies between a mid-rank and one of the most powerful daggers in the game.

The Orichalcon is the strongest dagger, providing 71 Attack, but not Zidane's most powerful weapon, since it is outdone by some thief swords. It teaches the Detect skill, and can be bought in Bran Bal or Daguerreo (disc 4) for 7,000 gil, or can be stolen from Taharka in Ipsen's Castle.

The mechanical knife Zidane uses in his left hand whenever he dual-wields daggers also occasionally goes by the name Orichalcum, and is an entirely different weapon to the similarly named dagger.

Final Fantasy XIEdit

XI The Orichalcum Dagger is a weapon, equippable at level 70 by Black Mages, Summoners, and Scholars. It has a damage of 20, a delay of 183, and boosts MP by 20 and Intelligence by 2. It may only be obtained via Synthesis. Its higher quality version, the Triton's Dagger, has a damage of 21, a delay of 178, and boosts MP by 25 and Intelligence by 2.

Final Fantasy XIIEdit

XII The Orichalcum Dirk is a powerful dagger that may cause Slow on hit. It has an Attack power of 59, 1.89s charge, and 1.2s action time, being one of the faster weapons in the game. The Orichalcum Dirk can be bought at Phon Coast for 8,500 gil.

In the International Zodiac Job System version, the Orichalcum is only available to the Shikari class, and requires the Daggers 5 License for 60 LP. Additionally, the Elite Mark, Gilgamesh, wields a fake version of the Orichalcon belonging to Zidane from Final Fantasy IX as a "trophy" of sorts, though the blade is much longer than the original and the handle is shaped differently.

EtymologyEdit

The word "orichalcum" is derived from the Greek word oreichalkos, meaning "mountain copper" or "mountain metal", and is mentioned in several ancient writings, most notably associated with Atlantis. Orichalcum was said to be second in value only to gold, and was the source of Atlantis' wealth and power. The exact type of metal that Orichalcum was is unknown, but it is commonly thought to be some form of alloy of bronze and/or copper, and other metals.
