Sword from Wonder Boy in Monster Land

Sword is an equipment from the Monster World series that improves the player's attack power.


Wonder Boy in Monster Land[]

Book obtains a Gradius in the beginning of his quest, and he can obtain stronger swords by defeating optional bosses.

Note that the swords are obtained in order, so if the player for example skips the Vampire Lord, he will obtain a Broad Sword from the next boss.

Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap[]

Book starts with the Legendary Sword, but as the Meka Dragon turns him into a Lizard-Man and he makes his escape from the collapsing castle, he loses his equipment and must obtain new swords, starting with an Ivory Sword. Except for Lizard-Man, all of Book's forms can use swords. Note that each form has a different attack power, the values below being added to them.

As the names from the Sega Master System version, the 2017 remastered version and Dragon's Curse (TurboGrafx-16) are the same, they are listed first. Some names are different in the Sega Game Gear version, and they are all different in the Turma da Mônica em O Resgate version.
