Concept art of Dragon Slayer from PSO

According to legends from persons unknown, the Dragon Slayer was once wielded by a mighty warrior that defeated numerous dragons. By simply taking hold of the greatsword, the user is granted astounding power against whatever crosses paths with its blade.

Dragon Slayer is an intricate large sword. Its blade ranges from a pale purple to a hot pink color that may glow upon use depending on the game. As the blade reaches closer toward the handle, it changes from a stone-like texture to one that resembles the scales of a monster. On the right side of the cross guard, there is an opening resembling a creature's mouth with a bright, glowing red eyeball resonating from within.

The handle itself has indentations that glow red as if the sword has veins or a heat source inside. A notable mention in Phantasy Star Online, Dragon Slayer has a special attack that adds fire damage upon successfully hitting the enemy.

In Phantasy Star Online 2 es, Dragon Slayer is portrayed for the first time in a human form known as a Weaponoid.

In Phantasy Star Online 2 es, Phantasy Star Online 2's mobile sister title, Dragon Slayer makes its first appearance as what is known as a Weaponoid. A Weaponoid is a weapon which has gained sentience after being transformed into a chip, and its character art reflects that by displaying a human version of the weapon with its own unique personality.

The chip's ability, Scarlet Pearl's Dragon Seal, combines both potentials of the original weapon from the game into a single chip. It greatly boosts damage against dragonkin for a short period of time, as well as reduces damage received from dragonkin.
