- Holy Eraser: A sword of darkness that has the ability to devour light and holy aura or energy.
- Flame Delete: A sword of ice that can freeze flames.
- Replenish Calm: A unique sword that creates a whirlwind in the centre which can suck in attacks, neutralizing them in the process.
- Sword of Betrayer: Yuuto's Balance Breaker. As it is a fusion of a Demonic and a Holy Sword, it is noted to be nonstandard and irregular, described as a phenomenon that could only happen due to the death of the God of the Bible. He is also able to create and mass produce Holy Demonic Swords with different elemental attributes such as lightning, ice and so on.
Blade Blacksmith: Yuuto receives it from the spirit of one of his lost comrades. It has the ability to create numerous Holy Swords of different attributes and properties.
- Glory Drag Trooper: Yuuto's sub-species Balance Breaker. It creates an army of armoured Dragon Knights that can copy the techniques and speed of the user, though they can currently only copy Yuuto's speed. He can also equip armor like the ones worn by his Dragon Knights, use them as a shield to defend against attacks, disguise himself as one of them to exploit openings in the opponent's defense and catch them off guard, or use them as a stepping stone to evade attacks or leap higher. He also passes on his Demon Swords he gained from Siegfried to them, bypassing their drawbacks.
Demon Swords: In the course of his battle against Siegfried, Yuuto gained possession of his Demon Swords after they chose him as their new wielder. They are all noted to be cursed.
- Gram: Known as the Sword of the Sun and the Demonic Emperor Sword, it is regarded as the ultimate Demon Sword. It possesses incredible sharpness, and is predominantly covered in offensive aura. It is said to be capable of cutting through anything, and is known as the demonic counterpart to the Holy Sword Durandal, due to its destructive power. Its other characteristic is its ability to slay dragons, having successfully slain one of the legendary Five Dragon Kings, the Gigantis Dragon Fafnir. It can be used to release destructive waves and its aura can be projected offensively.
- Balmung: A Demon Sword that is enveloped with a drill-like aura. It is capable of creating powerful whirlwinds that sweep towards the target, grinding the atmosphere in the process.
- Nothung: A Demon Sword that can rip through space-time, and is noted for its incredible sharpness.
- Tyrfing: A Demon Sword that specializes in destructive powers. It is capable of causing large craters.
