However, as mentioned only Beatrix can use the weapon, and the only way to attack with it is for Amarant Coral to Throw it.

Kingdom Hearts series

Save the Queen is Donald's ultimate weapon in both Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II, and a staff rather then the traditional sword. In Kingdom Hearts, it could be won in a tournament, and in Kingdom Hearts II it is a Synthesizable weapon. A better version of the weapon could also be synthesized, called "Save the Queen+". Goofy has a weapon called Save the King, which is the most powerful shield, and, like Save the Queen, it also has an upgrade version called Save the King+. While it is an obvious reference to Final Fantasy, there has never been an equipment piece in Final Fantasy called Save the King, shield or otherwise.

Etymology

"Save the Queen" is possibly derived from the name of the royal anthem, God Save the Queen.
