— Description, Sonic and the Black Knight[1]

Balmung (バルムンク Barumunku?) is an item that appears in Sonic and the Black Knight. It is an unlockable weapon that can be equipped to and wielded by Sir Gawain.



Balmung is a pair of identical weapons that resemble single bit axes instead of twin swords, and whose shape is very close to that of a hammer. They each have a straight black handle, with a brown cap on the knob and a flat brown rim on both the middle and below the axe head. The axe head for each weapon has a rather common shape for an axe head, and is attached to their respective handle with two round joins. The cheek of each axe head is brown and is decorated with dark brown wine-like symbols, while the blade is beige. Also, on top of each axe head there is another small cap.
