- The Sword Cursor is a special cursor that appears in KQ6 and KQ8. The sword cursor represents the ability to have combat with enemy.
In KQ6, the Sword Cursor replaces the 'Hand' cursor after Alexander picks up the Ceremonial sword in the tower of the Castle of the Crown. Depending on the version of the game, Alexander uses the cursor once or twice to defeat Abdul Alhazred in a duel.
In KQ8, the Sword Cursor appears whenever Connor draws his hand weapon. One can temporarily change the cursor from the sword cursor to the Play Cursor, by pressing and holding the CTRL key. This is useful to allow, him to 'Look, take, do" without having to put away the weapon.
