Rapiers are recurring weapons in Final Fantasy. They are a specific type of narrow sword used for Fencing and magic users.

Contents

Appearances

Final Fantasy

The Rapier weapon is a weak and common sword that can be used by Warriors, Red Mages, and Thieves. It may be purchased for 10 GP in Cornelia.

Final Fantasy VI

The left arm of the Inferno boss, Rahu, uses physical attacks and the Rapier special move.

Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Genesis Rhapsodos wields the crimson Rapier Sword, which actually resembles a broadsword, but has a Rapier-style hilt.

Final Fantasy XI

Rapiers are a type of sword, primarily used by Red Mages. They are distinct in that they inflict piercing damage, rather than slashing damage.

Notable examples of rapier-types:

  • Murgleis
  • Vorpal Sword
  • Mensur Epee
  • Verdun
  • Guespiere
  • Sylphid Epee
  • Phantom Flueret
  • Company Flueret
  • Joyeuse

The actual Rapier itself appears as a generic mid-level Fencing blade that increases Parrying skill.

Final Fantasy XII

Larsa Ferrinas Solidor uses the Rapier Joyeuse as his main weapon.

Final Fantasy Versus XIII

Stella wields a Rapier while battling Noctis. Her Rapier may have some magical properties, as a winged crest forms behind her when she brandishes it. However, it is possible that the magic is simply a spell cast by Stella herself.

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

The Fencer, Elementalist, and Red Mage all employ Rapiers as their weapon of choice, and so does Ritz Malheur, although her Job can be changed after she joins the player's Clan.

History

Dominic Tyrone began his career as a racketeer for criminal union Maggia. He met another maggiosso, Silvio Manfredi, who had been recently released from prison. Manfredi had lost some power in Maggia, but intended to recover it. Tyrone became his ally, his partner and his best friend while both of them made the Manfredi family a powerful cartel. With Tyrone's help, Manfredi controlled the main criminal organization in the west coast.

Some twenty years ago, Manfredi decided that Tyrone had outlived his use. A hired thug from an alley attacked Tyrone with a blackjack blow in the base of his skull, damaging his spine, and threw him to a lake. However, a girl named Clarissa witnessed the scene and, without the thug noticing, she swam and took Tyrone to the shore. She took him to his father's home, and from them to the hospital. Surgery avoided permanent damage on his spine, specially because Tyrone showed a great resolve: He was obssessed with revenge.

During his recovery, Tyrone improved his physical condition and learned fencing. All of the time, Clarissa remained at her side.

Decades later, Clarissa's father died, and Tyrone decided that it was the moment to get his revenge. By that time, Manfredi had became Silvermane, an important crimelord, and had remained artificially young, with a 39-year-old body when he should have been an octogenarian.

Tyrone prepared a costume with a mask and attacked Maggia thugs. Soon, his secret identity as the Rapier would be famous because of his heroic deeds. However, superheroe Spider-Man, suspicious of the Rapier, fought inconclusively with him.

The only goal of the masquerade was attracting Manfredi's attention. Manfredi finally noticed the Rapier and agred to meet with him in the Cloisters. Secretly, Clarissa followed Tyrone there.

The Rapier firstly defeated Manfredi's bodyguards, and then revealed his identity and shocked him with his sword. He finally had a chance to shoot Manfredi. However, Spider-Man found him, deflected the first shot so it wouldn't be fatal to Manfredi, and began fencing with the Rapier. Clarissa, wanting to help Tyrone, hit Spider-Man from behind. Tyrone was so angered by her intromision that he insulted and physically abused her.

Rapier simply walked away, but Manfredi was conscious enough to shot him in the back. Even then, The Rapier staggered away.

He was then contacted by Gary Gilbert, a former customed criminal turned into business agent for criminals. Gilbert was worried about the Scourge of the Underworld, a masked figure who was killing customed criminals such as Gilbert and Tyrone. Gilbert organized a meeting in the The Bar with No Name, Medina County, Ohio, to discuss potential counter-attacks. As the Scourge was known to use weapons instead of powers, weapons were to be left at the door. However, the Scourge infiltrated in the meeting disguised as the bartender and shot down all the seventeen criminals (including Tyrone) wielding a cut-down .50 submachine gun in each hand.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

The Rapier is a very thin sword, most effective for piercing. Its speed is roughly that of a shortsword. It was used by Gentleman Mallard until his disappearance at sea. The sword was later found by Smith of Mos Le'Harmless, who will sell it to players for 25,600 coins. The stab and slash attack bonuses of the rapier are opposite compared to the Rune scimitar.

To be able to understand Smith and purchase the rapier, the player must either have a Book o' piracy in their inventory or have completed the Rocking Out quest. Talk to Smith and select the cutlasses option in the dialogue box.

Players require level 40 Attack to wield the rapier. It's the stabbing sister of rune scimitar, so it can be used by members as an alternative to the rune scimitar.

Trivia

  • The examine text is a reference to Tybalt, spoken by Mercutio in the Shakespeare play Romeo and Juliet. 'Rapier' is also what swords are called by some of the characters during the play.
  • This sword can be used effectively for fighting Dragons, as they are weak against stab attacks and the Rapier has a better stab bonus than most one-handed Dragon equipment.
  • This is the signature weapon of Harallak Menarous.
