The platinum sword is a recurring sword in the Dragon Quest series. Typically the strongest of the mundane, non-magical swords, it offers a reliable attack boost for the middle of an adventure.


Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation[edit]

The platinum sword has an attack bonus of +60 and a style bonus of +45. The Hero, Carver, Milly, Ashlynn, Amos, Terry, and Goowain can equip it. Dragooners drop them 1/64 of the time. They cannot be bought or sold. One is given as a price at Medford's Manor for bringing 30 mini medals.

Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past[edit]

The platinum sword has an attack bonus of +60 and a style bonus of +45. It can be equipped by the Hero, Sir Mervyn, and Aishe. It can be purchased at the Grand Bazaar stage of the Immigrant Town for 3,000 gold and sold for 1,500 gold. One is given to the party in Providence by the shopkeeper when the town is attacked by monsters. If it is equipped along with the Platinum mail, Platinum headgear, and Platinum shield when being ranked for the Excellence Grading Organisation, it provides a +30 bonus to style.

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King[edit]

The platinum sword has an attack bonus of +40. It can be sold for 3,000 gold. The Hero, Jessica, and Angelo can equip it. Hell gladiators will rarely drop them.
