Revolutionary Girl Utena
The Sword of Dios

The Sword of Dios is the sword that the current winner of the Duels for the Rose Bride pulls from Anthy's chest before each duel. The sword itself has a black and golden hilt.

The powers of the Sword of Dios are largely unknown. Saionji claims in Episode 2 that the sword itself has no powers but what the person wielding brings to it. However, Touga reveals in Episode 12 that the Rose Bride herself can endow the blade with powers beyond what it normally has. It is not explained thoroughly, but Anthy "protects" the blade by touching it, and from then on the blade turns red.
