The Empyrean Blade (also known as Star Sword in the SNES/PS version) is Crono's twelfth-level katana in Chrono Trigger. It has an attack of 125 and can be purchased at the Last Village for 25000 G. Also, it is found in a chest in the Ocean Palace.
In battle, the blade shares its metal-white color with the Bronze Blade and the Mammoth Tusk, only its slashing trail is a rippling effect of impact-flashes colored light-gray (shared with the DS-exclusive katana Icewyrm).
- The Japanese name of the weapon is also most likely named after the deity name Gozu Ten'ō (牛頭天王, lit. Ox Head Heaven King), the possible Japanese name for the Indian god Gavagriva.
