Dark Cloud Wiki

Maximilian's melee weapons include wrenches and hammers in Dark Chronicle. Maximilian first began using them when his wrench turned into a Battle Wrench, which he then upgraded as he progressed through various dungeons, culminating either in the Grade Zero or LEGEND weapons. The former being the end of the wrench-type build up line, and the latter being from the hammer-type line.

The wrenches focus on speed over power, whereas the hammers are more focused on power over speed. Regardless, the LEGEND is vastly superior due to its higher maximum attack attribute compared to the Grade Zero. Maximilian can also use his melee weapons to charge up an extra powerful 360 degrees spin attack, which also catches and returns certain projectiles back at enemies.

Maximilian can also use several Spheda clubs as a weapon, although they are inferior to equivalent weapons and improved clubs do not become more powerful at Spheda. The first club he gains is the Handy Stick in Barga's Valley, which cannot be build up or obtained in any other way. Later clubs have a bird theme for their names, and can build up.
