SOTN Mormegil

Mormegil (Holy Buster in the Japanese version) is a moderately powerful one-handed Dark-elemental sword in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night found after defeating Granfaloon in the Catacombs.


Mormegil is a companion to the "brand" swords (Firebrand, Icebrand and Thunderbrand) and the slightly more powerful Holy Sword. It is a mid-level sword with the Dark element, but unlike the other "brands" it has no elemental burst attack, making it substantially weaker in practice. In addition, only two enemies in the standard game are weak to Dark damage; the Sniper of Goth found in the Anti-Chapel and Richter Belmont. Maria Renard in the Saturn version and The Dracula X Chronicles is the only addition in other versions. To make matters worse, many other enemies either resist or absorb Dark, meaning it is by far the worst of the "brand" swords and not really worth using.

A similar sword, Kaladbolg, appears in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, which moves similarly and also has the Dark element.

  • In The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien, Anglachel (meaning "Iron of the Flaming Star" in Sindarin) is a sword forged by Eöl the Dark Elf. It was one of two swords Eöl forged out of a black meteorite; the other, Anguirel, he kept for himself. Anglachel was later reforged by the expert smiths at Nargothrond and was renamed by its new keeper, Túrin, to Gurthang, which means "Iron of Death". The orcs and elves called the weapon and Túrin "Mormegil", meaning "Black Sword".
