Dagger (ダガー), also known as Knife (ナイフ) and Sword (剣), is a weapon from the series that is mostly thrown straight forward and is faster than the Lance, usually being able to have up to three in the screen. It is widely considered to be one of the best weapons in the series due to it being easy to use and fast.

Ghouls 'n GhostsEdit
