The Rune Blade prior to EBF3.

The Rune Blade is a recurring Holy-element weapon in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. So far, it has been used by Matt in all four main games.

Description

The Rune Blade is a white and black long sword with a slimmer design than the Heaven's Gate, Matt's other holy-element weapon.

Unlike most of Matt's other weapons, the Rune Blade gives him a massive boost to his lackluster Magic Attack, while giving him little bonus in Attack. It also increases his resistance to Syphon and Dispel, and can drain MP with several physical attacks.
