The Divine Avenger is a 5-star sword.
An upgraded Avenger formed from the purest sun steel. There are few foes remaining in this world that are worthy enough to be defeated by such a fine blade, and there are still fewer heroes worthy of wielding it.

A two-strike attack similar to other "heavy" swords. It has a long and wide reach, with average knockback.
The knight takes a small step back and takes a wide swing with the sword, which emits three Divine Avenger-shaped energy beams which prime for a moment before flying forwards a fair distance before detonating. The beams travel through monsters and over gaps. The sword swing, beams and detonation all deal damage.
The following damage values represent the weapon at its completed level, without any UV or bonus from other equipment, and listed as a range found from the first to last floor of each stratum.

|Divine Avenger's alchemy path|
When a knight's back is against a wall or obstacle, and the knight releases Divine Avenger's charge attack, the three projectiles fail. That is, they explode immediately, without shooting forward. This behavior prevents certain "shooting around corners" tricks in Firestorm Citadel. It has never been acknowledged as a bug or a design feature by Three Rings.
Divine Avenger's speed bar is equal in length to Troika's, while Gran Faust's speed bar is equal in length to Leviathan Blade's. In reality, Troika combos more slowly than Gran Faust and Divine Avenger do, and those swords combo more slowly than Leviathan Blade does. Furthermore, Divine Avenger charges more quickly than does Gran Faust. (See data.)
The visual glow around the Divine Avenger and Gran Faust blades bears a resemblance to Excalibur in Sonic and the Black Knight.
Divine Avenger was available when the game launched (in release 2011-04-04). Until release 2011-04-27, it and Fang of Vog were the only 5-star elemental swords. In release 2011-10-20, the charge attack was changed. The projectiles became less spread-out, and the behavior near walls was introduced.
