A brilliant rapier. It's name means 'light.'

— Description, Sonic and the Black Knight[1]

Solais Rapier (ソラス・レイピア Sorasu Reipia?) 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 Percival.



Solais Raiper's design is based on that of a rapier. It has a dark tan grip that curves slightly outward and a round sword pummel. Its cross-guard resembles two tan cross-guards with pointy ends and swirl patterns stashed on top of one another, with the lower one sticking more out than then one below it. In the middle of the guard, it has a tan triangular piece resembling a claw. The foot of the blade curves more inward than the rest of the blade and has a tan and black fuller.

Solais is likely derived from Claíomh Solais, an Irish term used in folk-tales meaning "sword of light" or "shining sword," fitting in with the in-game description that "its name means 'light.'" The term appeared in many Irish folk-tales.

A sword by the name Claiomh Solais appears in the game with a similar design to the Solais Rapier.
