Rhongomyniad: The Spear That Shines To The Ends Of The Earth (最果てにて輝ける槍, Saihate nite Kagayakeru Yari?) is the holy lance of King Arthur. Also known as Ron, it is regarded in the same light as the holy lance Longinus that pierced the Messiah around the 1st Century AD.
King Arthur used it in her final battle to kill Mordred. It is said that no matter the toughness of Mordred's armor, it amounted to nothing before the lance as it pierced her chest. King Arthur also used this spear against Vortigern in his Dragon form, the spiral light of the spear piercing through the heart of the crucified dragon.
Its purpose isn't meant to be used as a weapon to strike down external invaders. The holy spear is an anchor of storm that fasten together the planet. It has been said that its real form is that of a tower that fasten together the skin of the world. It exists to be the planet's anchor and to ensure the World's stability. As a "pillar of light" that fasten together the outer layer of the world as its main body and the two sides of the World (reality and illusion) itself. It has been said that, in the unlikely event that this is undone, reality will be torn off from the World. Being the "king" that stood at the final moments of illusion and the Age of Gods, she possessed the holy lance that conceals such tremendous power.
Merlin describes the actual lance itself as simply a shadow cast by the tower of light that exists at the end of the World. The tower, also called Rhongomyniad, can be said to be ever-distant, since no living person can reach the end of the World itself. Bedivere states that none of the Knights of the Round Table ever questioned the spear's nature, and so never learned of its significance or power, meaning that only King Arthur and Merlin amongst them were ever aware of what it is.

"Pierce! Take this! The thirteen fangs! 'Rhongomyniad'!!”
Thanks to the existence of the thirteen restraints that are endowed with the same processes as the "the holy sword of the planet that saves the world", this is barely in a condition where it can take shape as a Noble Phantasm. Its original power is being limited by thirteen restraints, but nevertheless this is the pillar in the far away that shines to extol the brilliance of the planet. The activation of this spear is restricted by the "13 seals", an attribute it shares with Excalibur Proto, and at least half of the seals must be fulfilled to release the light from the Ends of the Earth. When releasing the True Name, both its Type and Rank would change. The holy spear will emit a fragment of the power of the light that shines in the far away.
The ability to use it has been passed down in a line descended from relatives of King Arthur, currently held by Gray. Her Mystic Code "Add" only existed as a temporary seal to stop the degradation of the weapon's Mystery in the first place. When activated, it can launch a beam of light.
