Goldnail, the mighty sword, cries out for your blood! Come! Step forward so that I, the indomitable Blight, may cut you down!


Goldnail (「金釘」?; Kanakugi) was a sword that was used by the microscopic demon Blight. It had a stained blade and gave off a toxic green mist which was responsible for the illness that plagued Sei'an City. It was the source of Blight's life force.

  • Goldnail and, by extension, Blight, are an example of a tsukumogami, a demon that arises from a cursed blade.
  • Although the blade of the sword appears rusty, this may actually be dried blood. It is also possible that the blood caused the sword to oxidise and rust.
  • The Goldnail looks similar to the Yamato, Vergil's ōkatana in another Capcom game, Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening (specifically the Special Edition of the game, since Vergil is a playable character in the Special Edition) and Devil May Cry 4. Both blades have a golden circular guard and possesses great magical properties.
    • Also, Goldnail bears resemblances to Vergil himself. Goldnail can summon a circle of swords around Blight, while Vergil has the ability Summoned Swords, which enables him to fire spectral blades, instead of usage of firearms. Also, Blight's swords circles bears very strong resemblances to Vergil's Spiral Swords, which is an extension of the Summoned Swords technique, in which Vergil creates a barrier of countless swords that surrounds his body.
    • Since Devil May Cry 3 was made before Ōkami, it is possible that Blight was modelled after Vergil. As an extra note, both possess extremely skilled swordsmanship.


  1. "Blight, a disease residing within the Emperor's body and born of the intense hatred and evil of the cursed sword Goldnail, was the source of the acrid mist that had plagued the capital's citizenry."—Narrator (Ōkami)
