Gram (グラム, Guramu?) is the "Sword of the Sun" wielded by Sigurd in the Völsunga saga of Norse mythology.[1][2] It was originally wielded, and pulled from the trunk of a mighty tree by Sigurd's father, Sigmund, later it shattered and reforged anew into a demonic blade by Sigurd.[2][1] After that, it became renowned as a "Demonic Sword of glory and ruin" that was capable of killing even a dragon.[2][1] It is said to be the "strongest demonic sword" that equals the "strongest holy sword", so it possesses the special characteristic of "dragon slayer".[1] The weapon is said to appear in the Der Ring des Nibelungen under the name change of Balmung, but it is rather called the "origin" of Balmung wielded by Siegfried.[1][3]

The incident of Gram being pulled from the tree within the halls of King Völsung is a legend of a "sword of selection" originating with the sword Merodach.[4] Gram, "the sword of supremacy in the tree", itself was the model for Caliburn, the sword in the stone, possessed by King Arthur.[2][5] Although it has a different appearance from Caliburn, it's "true nature", the "idea of its creation", and its "soul", are nearly identical. Due to being its model, its strength as a Noble Phantasm is incomparable, easily shattering Caliburn without it being able to put up any resistance. It utilizes the same power as Caliburn, a "light that can burn away everything it touches", that could kill Berserker with one slash.[5][6]
