A pair of thin swords infused with the power of the sun.

— Hauteclaire, Sonic and the Black Knight[1]

Hauteclaire (オートクレール Ōtokurēru?) 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.



Hauteclaire is a pair of identical weapons that resemble short single-edged swords. Each sword has a thick gray grip with a flat and oblique gray guard that tilts downward on the front, and a knuckle bow that extends from the front edge of the guard to the sword pummel. Each front edge of Hauteclaire, which is silver and decorated with white and black patterns, is straight at the middle, while the foot of it is in the shape of a hook, and the top of it curves upward. Covering most of the back edge on each of Hauteclaire's swords is a gray metal sheet that curve slightly inward and which is decorated with a figure resembling a wine with leaves.
