Weapon Story

Long long ago in a faraway kingdom, there were three brothers. The eldest brother was a king who ruled over the nation entire. He was a most terrifying king, feared by all.

Each day, the king would select one of his subjects to execute as a sacrifice. This day, he chopped off a mother's head and forced her family to watch. The head spun three times as it flew through the air before landing next to the head of her son, who the king had previously killed.

Oh, the horror of it all.

But the king merely watched the sight unfold before him and laughed in a most unsettling voice.

One day, the king contracted an illness most dire—one which caused his body to rot while he was still alive. But though diseased, the king would still drag his decaying flesh to the executions all the same. His retainers dared not defy their king, so they continued to kill day after day after day after day.

In the end, the king rotted and died. His was a disgusting, foul, rotten death, but his retainers continued carrying out executions before the king's rotted corpse every day... Every day, killing... Every day the rotted king and the rotted retainers and the rotted citizens... and the rotted you.

Once upon a time there were three brothers in a kingdom. The eldest of the three was the ruling king of the country. The king was very cruel and feared by everyone.

The king chose a sacrifice from the people every day and executed them. Today he decapitated a mother in front of her family. The mother’s head rolled about three times, and fell beside her killed son’s head. Oh my, how unfortunate. The king saw that and laughed a disgusting laugh. “Gehehe…”

One day, the king became sick. It was a disease that made his body rot while he was still alive. Dragging his rotting body along, the king continued his executions. His advisors did not defy him, and continued executions day after day after day after day.

Finally the king rotted and died while giving off a very disgusting smell the king rotted and died but the advisors continued the executions in front of the king and killed them every day the rotten king and the rotten advisors and the rotten people and the rottenrottenyour.


  • Judging from the fact that it is the weapon most often seen in Father Nier's hands in promotional material, it is likely that this is his signature weapon.
  • The weapon that Nier's doppelganger uses when performing Dark Phantasm is Beastlord, whether it is in his inventory or not. In the first half of the game, it will instead simply be the Nameless Blade in the original version or Moonrise in the remake, as Nier cannot use two-handed swords or spears in the first half.
