Swordy (スウォーディン,Suwōdin?) is a sword knight virus from the Mega Man Battle Network series that wields ethereal swords. They attack by slicing 3 panels in front of them (having the range of a Wide Sword) and/or slicing 2 panels ahead of them (having the range of a Long Sword). In Mega Man Battle Network Swordys could also perform a third type of slicing attack, which had the range of a FighterSword. They are also able to use AreaSteal to increase their fighting range and corner their enemies. Because they can range from non-elemental to Aqua and Fire element types, the Swordy family can drop a variety of SwordBattle Chips when defeated.
Swordy is a grey variant with a red spike and purple blade. The sword and virus both are non-elemental. Swordy can strike with either a Long Sword (or Fighter Sword reaching 3 panels only in Mega Man Battle Network) or a Wide Sword.
Swordy2 is a gold variant with a blue spike and red blade. They function the same as regular Swordy but have more HP, move faster, deal more damage, and wield a sword of a fire element. Hence, their bodies are also fire elemental. They are especially vulnerable to aqua attacks.
