Under ordinary situations, this sword has higher DPS than all tiered swords and the majority of Untiered swords. Divinity deals more, but only against high DEF or if you aren’t berserked. Other swords (Demon Blade, Cheerful Chipper, Pixie or Henchman’s Claymore) can deal more, but only at point-blank range. On warrior, Sword of the Colossus beats the aforementioned swords at 74 DEF, 52 DEF, 28 DEF and 7 DEF respectively, and from a very respectable 4.5 range, too.

The catch is the odd firing pattern of the sword which causes its shots to curve outward before curving back inwards. This makes the sword extremely hard to aim properly, but anything caught in the intersection of the shots will take enormous damage. This sword also makes the Crystal Sword obsolete as it has the same range but far higher damage.

Since it is required to hit targets at the very end of its range to maximize its damage, this sword is most effective on targets that do not move much. It is worth noting that this range is longer than not only all tiered shields, but even the likes of the Spiteful Scutum. This means that knights will have to get very close to enemies to be able to stun as well as maximize their DPS output.

However, with good awareness of spacing and character movement, this sword becomes a clear-cut winner over all other swords. Note, however, that if you find yourself missing a decent number of shots, the Sword of Majesty deals similar damage and may provide better DPS overall due to its easier shot pattern.

Prior to Patch X.26.0.0 (May 2018), the sword had an Amplitude of 1 and had the following sprite:
