Dragon Ball Wiki

Tao's sword (桃白白の剣 Taopaipai no Ken) is the sword Mercenary Tao uses against Goku in their second fight.


The sword is a niuweidao (牛尾刀, "Ox Tail Saber"), a single-edged broadsword used in Chinese martial arts, although the sword's blade has a greater resemblance to the Chinese Guan Dao, Korean Hyeopdo, or Russian Sovnya.


When Tao was overpowered by Goku, he brought out a capsule and when he tossed it, the sword appeared. It was used for a limited time though as Goku dodged a few attacks from Tao's blade, with Upa throwing the Power Pole to Goku, which he used to break Tao's sword. After that, they went back to regular combat.

Video Game Appearances[]

Mercenary Tao also uses this sword in the Budokai Tenkaichi series.

In Dragon Ball Z: Idainaru Son Goku Densetsu, Tao used the sword for a technique named Renshinseiryuto (連振青竜刀).
