The sword of a legendary hero.In-game description
Probably not just a really big stick.
The Balmung is a long blade with a wide golden guard and a golden hilt. The blade itself is white and has a line going through it.
- In Norse mythology, Gram (also known as Balmung) was the name of the sword the legendary hero Sigurd (Siegfried) used to slay the dragon Fafnir.
- The Balmung's uniqueness in terms of name and imagery are in direct contrast with the M Blade. (The latter is really just a white longsword). This may be to show the differences between Deugan and Mardek's mindset; while Deugan is independent and willing to take risks, Mardek is willing to let people choose what he should do (this is a reference to how Mardek is the protagonist and as such is controlled by the player).
