A very precious metal.

— Description, Sonic and the Black Knight[1]

The Mithril (ミスリル銀 Misurirugin?) is a collectible item that appears in Sonic and the Black Knight.


The Mithril is a lump of gray-colored metal. Accordingly, it is very precious.


In gameplay, the player can collect the Mithril during different Missions in certain areas. For then to obtain it, the player must use the ID points earned from completing the Mission where the Mithril was picked up to identify it on the identification screen. The Mithril is needed to craft the following swords:


No. 145
ID Point Price 10
Rarity Level ★★★★★★★★★☆
Item Type Mineral
Location Molten Mine (earned by clearing "Defeat the Boss: Sir Percival")


  • The metal originated from J. R. R. Tolkiens high fantasy books. "Mithril" was a precious silvery metal, very lightweight but capable of providing extreme strength in alloys, which were mined by the Dwarves in the deep mines of Khazad-dûm. Due to the fact that the Tolkien Estate did not trademark the term, it is often used in a variety of other franchises and fiction.
