The Sword of Kings was originally a sword explicitly forged to slay Zoma in Dragon Quest III, but its first wielder failed and the blade was subsequently. It was later reforged for Erdrick and he used it to successfully slay the Dmon King. It was then called Erdrick's Sword or the Sword of Erdrick after its most famous wielder, becoming a weapon of legend. At some point afterward, the Dragon Lord sized it to prevent it from being used against him. Despite his efforts, Erdrick's Descendant was able to retrieve the sword and slay the evil overlord as their ancestor once did.
It reappears in Dragon Quest II, but it has been worn due to age, and is thus far less potent than before.
It makes yet another appearance in Dragon Quest IX, where time has left it rusted and nearly unrecognizable from its previous glory. However, with time and patience, the Celestial was able to restore it to its full strength as one of the most powerful weapons in the game, surpassing even the equally legendary Liquid Metal Sword.
