Trap of Argalia: Down with a Touch! (触れれば転倒!トラップ・オブ・アルガリア, Furereba Tentō!Torappu obu Arugaria?) is a shining, ornate golden lance that belonged to Argalia, a knight and prince of Cathay, that was later taken by Astolfo as one of the many treasures obtained through his escapades. "Carelessly named" and nicknamed just "Argalia", it is a spear with a low killing-ability that acts only as a cavalry lance unstrengthened by magecraft, unable to pierce through all defenses, and lacking any special killing blows like always piercing the heart. Although it will still cause the enemy to bleed and kill them should it penetrate their heart, killing it not its primary intent, but it does prove deadly in battle.

It was Argalia's beloved lance, said to cause anyone it touched to fall, bringing him much glory in jousting tournaments and upon the battlefield where heavily armored knights would be led to inevitable death should they fall. The spear's only function is to realize its legend by returning its target to Spiritual Form below the knee when the target is a Servant. It is able to hit anywhere on the target's body, even armor woven from magical energy, and physically cut the supply to the affected part of the body. With a "wound" attached to the legs of the spiritual body, it is temporarily rendered as impossible to take form as flesh and blood, a "bad status" of "falling." It can only be remedied with a Luck check, and although failure will cause "falling" to linger, it is not hard for it to pass due to Luck readjusting itself upward.[1] It is not very effective against enemies like Berserker of Red who will simply continue to drag themselves forward to defeat their foes.
