Elucidator (エリュシデータ, Eryushidēta?) is Kirito’s primary weapon in Sword Art Online. This sword is a demonic monster drop from a boss on the 50th Floor that he wields along with «Dark Repulser». It was boosted to +40 by Lisbeth out of a maximum of 50.
Elucidator is a pitch black sword with trims of gray and is evenly balanced and quite powerful. It has a black hilt connected to a hand guard that drops down on the right side. Attached to this elongated area of the hand-guard is part of Elucidator’s blade so as to better aid the user in retaining their grip on the sword when it is being used. The blade is completely black like the rest of the sword and the said blade is outlined in a light gray. In the design art by the illustrator of the novels, a small cross is emblazoned on the flat of the blade, just beneath the tip.
As the Night Sky Sword was requested to be the same length as the Elucidator, this sword is less than 120 centimeters long.
