The Sword of Kings is a legendary weapon reserved only for those chosen by the Gods. It would become known as Erdrick's Sword after the adventure in Alefgard, passed down through the lineage of the legendary Hero as part of his heraldry.
Zoma feared the sword being used against him and destroyed it prior to the game's events, though it took him three years to do so. A Jipangese blacksmith of superlative skill is able to restore it to its former glory, but the player must first sell him the chunk of orichalcum found in Damdara before he can begin. The sword of kings increases the Hero's attack by +120 and will generate an earthshaking thunderclap when used as an item.
The Sword of Kings is available in the post-game. In Hotto, there is a blacksmith that wishes to forge the sword, and needs Orichalcum to do so. Once given the material, the blacksmith starts forging the sword and asks the player to return later (one in-game day) for it. The Sword of Kings will then become available in the item shop. That's can be repeated any time the party have a piece of Orichalcum.
The Sword of Kings is one of the ingredients needed to craft the Supreme Sword of Light.
The Sword of Kings is available in the final chapter of the game, and requires three lumps of orichalcum, two steel ingots, one gold ingot, one silver ingot, and a drop of magic dye. It increases the Builder's attack by +50, and does not wear down with use like other weapons.
The sword increases the Builder's by +86, and requires three orichalcum ingots, one zenithium ingot, one gold ingot, and two silver ingots to forge.
The Sword of Kings is an S-rank sword that can be acquired as part of the limited True Dragon Quest III event by obtaining Orichalcum fragments through various challenges. It has an HP bonus of +30, an Attack bonus of +30, raises the physical potency of Hero units by 5% and has three slots for Alchemy Effects.
- As with the other equipment Erdrick amasses in the climax of his adventure, the sword's guard lacks the details that make it resemble Ramia and would not obtain them until later.
- The sword of kings is paid homage by the kingsblade of VII, which has a similar design and attack strength. This is possibly a developer gag as the 1996 remake of III was the most recent mainline title in the series prior to the release of VII in 2000.
