A wide-bladed sword whose name means “red”.

— Description, Sonic and the Black Knight[1]

Rubious (レクスルベウス Rekusurubeusu?) 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 Lancelot.



Rubious is a basic wide, double-edged sword. It has a wrapped-up dark blue grip with a rectangular yellow sword pommel and a thick yellow cross-guard in the shape of a "T". The blade of Rubious is wide in comparison to the rest of the sword, almost as wide as the guard. The guard is connected to the lower bottom of the blade with bolts, with the lower corners of the blade having a little distance from the guard. The edges on Rubious are wide and curve slightly inward at the middle, though they are straight when they join together at the point. Also, the inner surface on the blade is blackish brown with red chain-like rings running down the middle.
