The Hell sabre is a recurring weapon in the Dragon Quest series, being an ebony sword with white edges and an unsettling, vein-like pattern starting from the bone-like hilt up to two-thirds of the blade. Originally being exclusive to monster allies, it has since become available to human characters.
