Joyeuse AoS Icon

The Joyeuse is a very valuable, extravagantly beautiful sword. Joyeuse is attributed to be Carolingian Emperor Charlemagne's personal sword ("joyeuse" meaning "joyous" in feminine form in French).

Game specific information

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow

In Aria of Sorrow it is largely notable for its absurdly high selling price of $90,000. It is otherwise a fairly unremarkable weapon, made more so by the fact that it is found in the same area as the vastly better Claimh Solais.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow

The sword returns in Dawn of Sorrow, this time having a selling price of only $25,000. Since in this game acquiring souls is emphasized (and sometimes mandatory) to forge better weapons or to obtain the "good" ending, forging several Joyeuses to sell them later at Hammer's shop is a good way to save the money needed to buy the Soul Eater Ring, which costs $300,000.
