The Lance (槍 / やり Yari), also known as Spear and Javelin, misnamed Sword in the Sega Genesis manual, is Arthur's standard weapon in the series. In all games it is thrown by Arthur a straight line, and it has low power and average speed, being slower than the Dagger.
The Lance flies straight forward.
The normal Lance acts like the previous game, but like all weapons in this game, it can also be hurled straight up or down.
With the Golden Armor and the Lance, Arthur can use the Thunder Magic (雷の魔法 / サンダーの魔法). It sends lightning bolts in three directions; up, right and left, to zap enemies.
Like previous games, the normal Lance is slow but goes straight forward when hurled, making it effective against most enemies.
With the Golden Armor and Flaming Lance, Arthur can use the Thunder Magic. Three lightning bolts are fired left, up and right from his position and pierce through solid objects and enemies. Good for taking out lines of enemies, and works great on the first boss.
