Ice Brand in Final Fantasy IV DS.

Icebrand (アイスブランド Aisuburando) is a sword that appears in many of the Final Fantasy games. It is an element of Ice Equipment, which causes Ice damage with physical attacks and/or casts the Blizzard spell after the user attacks. Its stats are often close to, if not the same as the Flametongue - Icebrand's Fire-elemental "counterpart", and both swords are usually found around the same point the games that they appear in. Icebrand is often a bit stronger.
