The Avenger has a long black blade with grey edges and a thin opening near the base; it has several points and notches along its edge, giving it a curious outline. It has a golden cross guard with two horizontal grooves and a pair of red points that attach to the base of the blade. Its hilt is wrapped in red leather, with a small silver pommel.
The Avenger gives solid boosts to both offenses, as well as somewhat raising Accuracy, Evade and HP. As its name implies, it improves the power of Revenge, which it can also use as a counter. Its Unleash buffs Matt's Attack, but Temper or even Beer will grant a stronger boost.
Compared to the Gaia Axe (Matt's other starting weapon), the Avenger isn't quite as strong but lacks negative side effects. Both are useful enough for the early game, although the Gaia Axe is more powerful against Jack; later on, the Avenger is hampered by its focus on empowering the gimmicky Revenge skill. The Blizzard has superior offensive power, the Soul Eater is better for a "glass cannon" Matt build, and the Leather Hat provides comparable Stun resistance while allowing the player to choose a more potent weapon. Even the swords with similar Attack (the Heaven's Gate and the Black Fang) outclass the Avenger with their wider range of resistances and useful elemental boosts.
The Avenger resists Stun, becoming fully immune to it at Level 5.
