«Dark Repulser» (ダークリパルサー, Dāku Riparusā?) was a one-handed sword, created by Lisbeth for Kirito out of a Crystallite Ingot, which was obtained from a special quest. Whenever Kirito used the «Dual Blades» skill, he wielded it alongside «Elucidator». This weapon was destroyed during the fight with Kayaba Akihiko on the 75th Floor.
In the anime, Dark Repulser is aqua-colored. Its grip is a darker color than the rest of the blade and is completely straight. It leads up to a hilt that is exactly perpendicular to the grip and is designed to look like a pair of conjoined dagger blades. At the center of the guard is a large aquamarine gem. The blade itself is a deep aqua color, the base of the blade has a light-aqua attachment that causes the blade to have a natural indentation when one traces its length due to the angle that the attachment bends at.
The light novel describes Dark Repulser as a pale, one-handed straight sword that is slightly transparent. Its blade is white and slender, though not to the extent of a rapier. The grip is silver, with a slight tinge of blue.

After breaking one of Lisbeth's most prized swords, Kirito and Lisbeth set out to obtain a Crystalline Ingot on a quest. Far away in the mountains, there was a dragon that was rumored to produce a rare mineral. After being pushed into the pit and spending the night there, Kirito and Lisbeth found the special ingot, which was actually the dragon's excrement, but were stuck until Kirito managed to grab onto the tail of the dragon, who had returned to its nest for the day. After getting back to Lisbeth's shop, Dark Repulser was forged. Kirito swung the sword to test its weight and remarked it as "heavy", deeming the sword worthy. Kirito then demonstrates his Dual Blades skill upon Lisbeth's inquiry as to having a similar blade to his Elucidator.
Kirito had Lisbeth raise the reinforcement of Dark Repulser from +39 to +40. Lisbeth, although nervous, took on the challenge and, after boosting the success rate of the reinforcement to the maximum, began the 10 hits with the hammer on the sword required to complete the reinforcement. Lisbeth was hesitant to perform the last hit to improve it, but Kirito told her that he felt as if he was going to wield this sword against the final boss because of the name that the system gave to the sword. Lisbeth believed those words and managed to finish the enhancement successfully. She then claimed to not have to go through such a stressful enhancement again.
Unfortunately for her, Kirito promptly requested for his other sword, Elucidator, to be raised to +40 as well, to which she let out a long sigh.
