Caladbolg is a weapon available in Dragon's Dogma.


"A sword struck by a bolt from the heavens. It forever crackles with a thunder enchantment."

Caladbolg is a cutlass with a permanent Thunder enchantment - the only sword of its kind. Like other lightning enchanted weapons it has a chance to chain lightning to nearby foes and objects on a strike, causing damage and or thundershock.

The design of this sword is alike to a plain Cutlass.

  • Caladbolg was supposedly a legendary Irish greatsword during the 10th century.
  • In Welsh, King Arthur's Excalibur is called Caledfwlch; in Cornish, the sword is called Calesvol; in Latin, it is called Caliburnus. Caliburn is an alternate name for Excalibur, derived from its Latin version. Malory describes it: "thenne he drewe his swerd Excalibur, but it was so breyght in his enemyes eyen that it gaf light lyke thirty torchys."
  • Caladbolg translates as "hard cleft" in Old Welsh language.
  • Sometimes written Caladcholg ("hard blade"), it was the sword of Fergus mac Róich from the Ulster Cycle of Irish mythology. It is also associated with the more obscure Ulster hero Fergus mac Léti, suggesting a conflation of two legends.
  • It was said to be a two-handed sword that made a circle like an arc of rainbow when swung, and to have the power to slice the tops off hills and slaughter an entire host.
  • During the battle of Táin Bó Cúailnge, Ailill mac Máta takes Caladbolg away from Fergus mac Róich when he discovers Fergus' affair with his wife Medb. He gives it back when the Ulaid rally against his armies. Fergus wreaks havoc against Ulster's forces with this blade, but Conall Cernach convinces him not to kill Conchobar mac Nessa. Fergus strikes the "Three Great" Strokes on three small hills instead, blasting off their tops.
