The Black Sword[1][2] is an object that appears in Shadow the Hedgehog. A sword used by the Black Arms, it is a close combat-type weapon usable to both enemies and the player.

Description

Loosely based off of a talwar sword, the Black Sword is a dark purple sword about Shadow the Hedgehog's height. It has a space in-between the latter half of its blade, a dark purple cup guard and a black handle.

Overview

In gameplay, the Black Sword can only be found in certain Stages. They can be wielded by Black Warriors and Black Oaks who will use them against the player.

Black Swords can be dropped by defeated enemies that wield them or released from containers. They are also hidden inside the Black Oak statues in Glyphic Canyon and Sky Troops. Touching them will make Shadow pick them up automatically and pressing PSSquareButton/SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO/XboxX (whether on the ground or in mid-air) makes him attack with them. As a close combat weapon, the Black Sword is designed for face-to-face combat. As such, it has a short attack range, and it deals poor damage, but it can still take out up to three enemies. A Black Sword can swung a total of six times and once those tries are spent, it becomes useless. However, it can be reloaded with another six attacks by picking up another Black Sword.
