The Dark Sword is a magic melee weapon. It requires a Shadow Manipulator to prototype, and costs 5 Nightmare Fuel and 1 Living Log to craft. The Dark Sword does 68 damage per hit and has 100 uses. It also drains Sanity by 20/minute while equipped. It is also one of Maxwell's starting items.
The Dark Sword is the strongest melee weapon in the game.
- The Dark Sword was added in the Insanity! update. Until the A Little Rain Must Fall update, the cost of crafting was 1 Twig. The Dark Sword may have only been a stick changed by the character's imagination, similar to Night Armour.
- Upon examining the Dark Sword, Maxwell will say "snicker-snack!" This is a reference to Lewis Caroll's poem "Jabberwocky," in which a person slays the Jabberwock with the Vorpal Blade, a weapon described to make a "snicker-snack" sound.
- The design of the Dark Sword appears to be a combination of Nightmare Fuel's visual elements and shape of a cutlass, a sword stereotypically used by pirates.
