Repeat after me:

Battle animeations in The Ruins of Lore have nothing to do with the character's equipment. :P

In all artwork we have of the Dual Blade, it is just one sword. We never see 2 swords.

Well think of it like this, if the Dual Blade was two swords what would the sprite look like? Two swords crossing each other doesn't sound too appealing if you ask me.

While playing Lufia 1 I noticed on very close inspection that Maxim is using two different swords. One Double edged sword (most likely the Dual Blade) and one single edged sword. The single edged sword is probably Maxim's old sword which he always carries.

Maybe it is a double-edged sword after all...

Resurrection…
The Sinistrals are resurrected once again by the will of the Universe.
Why do the Sinistrals want contact with mankind?
What do the Sinistrals expect from mankind?
Enlightenment will soon come to the complexity of never-ending questions.
Doom Island…
The Island of the Sinistrals sank deep into the sea after the Second Doom Island War.
Doom Island, which was believed to be in an eternal sleep has once again begun silently beating, preparing to make its appearance in the sky for the third time.

The Legend Returns…
Beyond the time of eternity, The Legend Returns.
What is awaiting---nobody knows.


A 100 years after the Second Doom Island War

Mankind has begun to change quietly through the gentle flow of time.
Mankind, the leader of all creatures, has begun to realize their enormous power.
The seed of knowledge’s moment of sprouting was approaching.

And a Hero Disappeared

A Hero was not needed during the time of peace and prosperity.
However, the power of Maxim’s bloodline was too strong.
It was a double-edged sword and the spiritual force was divided.

And the Dual Blade Disappeared

At the bottom of prosperity’s light, the darkness had started to creep out.
No one foresees this change.

The Four Sinistrals

Long forgotten terrors bring forth an evil upon the earth.
Why have they been resurrected? What do they want to say to the mankind?
An adventurous journey continues looking for an invisible exit.

Those that have a seal of spiritual force! Gather under the Four Scars!

The 12 persons who inherit the spiritual force are dispersed throughout the world…
A Warrior, a Magician, a Princess, a Pirate, a Robber, a Wanderer, and an Idol….
They, being bewildered with this power, head for the “Tower of Judgementâ€

I think that it was referring to the power of Maxim's bloodline vs the lack of the need of it at peace, so that chaos split the Spiritual Force, meaning that the line was referring to the battle between the bloodline and the time of peace, not the Dual Blade.

Then we still don't know if the Dual Blade is a single or double sword.

Devur is the name for the hero that has pretty much been "standardized" througout the Lufia community, (thanks to Lufia of lufia.net) but I believe his "official" name is Wedge or something.


I hate to bring up a fairly old thread but I don't think in the English or even the German version they gave the Hero a real name, did they? Back to the main question, look at the offical art work, everything shows that the Dual Blade is one sword, just seems that Maxim has an extra or something. :?

Yeah, and Maxim's sprite shows two red colored swords, the Dual Blade is yellow/gold.

Ok, people, this is stupid. Maxim has 1 sword (which in the FOD prologue, you can chenge Maxim's Weapon to something better than Dual Blade, but thats off-topic). However, the image of Maxim holding 2 swords is a sprite. I for 1 have never seen battle sprites change depending of Weapons, Armor, etc. Think about it.

[quote="SinReVi"]Hmm, same question for Torma and Dekar in Lufia ROL. How does Dekar fight with two swords and a shield, and how does Torma fight with two chains and a shield?

Actually it looked to me when I played the game like Torma supported the chain with his right hand while twirling the end with his left hand. Also, when he does a normal attack or a special attack like Vorpal Blade, it doesn't look to me like 2 chains.
