A sword with a heavy tip giving it increased destructive power.

— Description, Sonic and the Black Knight[1]

Labrys (ラブリュス Raburyusu?) 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.



Labrys is a pair of identical swords that resemble double bit axes. Each sword has a straight light brown handle, with a golden capped block on the knob and a wide flat rim on the top section of the handle. The beard section below each axe head is a highly detailed golden rim, and the top of each axe head is composed of a brown metal rim with a red diamond cut jewel on top. The cheek of each axe head is golden with red markings, while the toe and heel of each axe head extend far to each side, with the heel reaching slightly beyond the beard and the toe rising far above the top on Labrys's axe heads.
