Moonlight Sword History

FromSoftware has released many games like Demon Souls, the Dark Souls Series, Sekiro, Elden Ring, and Armored Core 6. They’re all Soulslike but are pretty different when it comes to gameplay. However, they share the theme of having some variant of the Moonlight Sword. This striking big sword has an aqua-colored glow and can be recognized immediately.

However, in games like Sekiro, it isn’t apparent where the Moonlight Sword is, as we can’t wield it. However, the Divine Dragon Boss from Sekiro likely wields some variant of the Moonlight Sword. Moreover, the sword doesn’t go by the same name in each game, such as in Elden Ring, where it is named the Dark Moon Greatsword.

However, in Armored Core 6, it goes by the name IA-CO1W2: MOONLIGHT. It is easily the most different-looking variant of the Moonlight Sword. Still, regardless, it continues the FromSoftware tradition of carrying forward the legacy of the original Moonlight Sword from FromSoftware’s first video game, King’s Field.
