The Excalibur is a Melee Weapon that can be pulled from a stone located in the layer just above the water line in the Tide Pool 4-2 if the player is wearing either the Hedjet found in The Black Market, or the Crown found in Vlad's castle

The Excalibur can cut away loose Jungle foliage and cobwebs, damage enemies who are stunned or immune to whip damage, and deals a whopping 10 damage per swing, instantly gibbing most creatures into unusable chunks.

Excalibur is also one of the two things which can harm Kingu's shell, only matched by a massive 100 explosion damage. Because of this, it is a valuable asset in obtaining the Tablet of Destiny.

If the Excalibur is hit by the Clone Gun, it will instead produce a Broken Sword.

  • As there are other valuable items that may be obtained in or can be carried through Tide Pool besides Excalibur such as the Clone Gun or Eggplant, one may want to use Hired Hands to carry it and other items through the area.

Trivia

  • The Excalibur, as well as the method of obtaining it, is a reference to the sword of the same name from Arthurian legend. Another sword, often conflated with the Excalibur, was pulled from a stone by King Arthur as proof of his royal lineage.
