The Buster Sword is a broadsword that appears throughout the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII. It serves as Cloud Strife's main weapon in Final Fantasy VII, and was wielded before him by Zack Fair and Angeal Hewley. The Buster Sword is classified as an enormous broadsword (though it has more in common with a zweihander). Despite it's size, Cloud claims that it's not that heavy. From tip to handle, it is approximately 5 to 6 feet long, with a single-edged, enormously wide blade. Its original finish sports a bolted, steel base and blade, and there are two holes on the blade near the hilt, used as Materia "slots". In Crisis Core, the base is retconned to having a swirling or winged motif at its base, tinted gold, and the blade is now black, with engraved marks at its base, sharpened edge prominent and the "slots" equipped with a latch cover.
