"I thought your thing was a sword?"
"We've been hired to stop an inter-dimensional beast from feeding on those batteries and I'm going to stop it with a sword?"
Star-Lord and Gamora[src]

The Godslayer is a collapsible sword that was used by Gamora which includes a detachable knife that connects to the sword's hilt.


Quest for the Orb

Skirmish on Xandar

In 2014, Gamora pursued Peter Quill on Xandar for the Orb, however, she was interrupted by Rocket Raccoon and Groot, and used the Godslayer to defend herself from the pair, amputating Groot's arms when he attempted to restrain her. While imprisoned in the Kyln, Godslayer was confiscated by the Nova Corps, but Gamora eventually reclaimed it after escaping from the prison with Quill, Rocket, Groot, and Drax the Destroyer.

Battle of Xandar

During the Battle of Xandar, Gamora fought Nebula with Godslayer and emerged victorious.[1]

Battle on Sovereign

Two months later, Godslayer was used again by Gamora in the fight on Sovereign, where she used it to kill the Abilisk, slicing its throat after her firearm ran out of ammunition.[2]

Infinity War

Attack on Knowhere

In 2018, when Gamora was captured by Thanos on Knowhere, Godslayer was taken into Peter Quill’s possession.[3]

Alternate Universe Versions

Brought to the Main Universe

An alternate version of Godslayer was brought by an alternate Gamora to the main universe. She used it to fight in the battle against an alternate Thanos and his army at the destroyed Avengers Compound.[4]


The Godslayer is capable of cutting through even the most durable of metals and uses a unique energy core located in the hilt to lower the weight of the blade, making it easier for the wielder to handle. The detachable knife can be used as a melee or throwing weapon.[1] It can also be split into two swords, although this has not been demonstrated yet.[5]


  • The Godslayer earned its name due to its capability of killing an Asgardian.[6]
