''VideoGame/DragonQuest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors'' is a first-person RPG developed by Creator/{{Eighting|Raizing}} in cooperation with Creator/GeniusSonority and released by Creator/SquareEnix on the Nintendo UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} in 2007. It tells the story of the son of the great swordsman Claymore, who is prepared to take his place among the knights of Avalonia by undergoing the "Walk of the Worthy", a rite of passage for [[DangerousSixteenthBirthday sixteen-year-old males]]. After he completes his trial, the young swordsman learns of an EvilOverlord that his father fought in the past, and of a reclusive queen who wears a creepy mask and has been largely avoiding the public eye. How are these events related, if at all?

The game is notable for taking advantage of the Wii's motion sensor controls; you swing your sword by swinging the Wiimote in the same manner.
!! Tropes in ''Dragon Quest Swords'':
* AccentAdaptation
* ArmsAndArmorThemeNaming: There are sword-themed names all over the place. The hero's father is named Claymore, the hero's two traveling companions are Fleurette and Anlace, the BigBad is called Xiphos, and a few of the game's locations are mostly named for legendary weapons (Caliburn Cave and Arondight/Alondite Heights).
* AntiFrustrationFeatures: [[spoiler:Losing to Xiphos allows you to choose to go to the dungeon or go straight to his throne room.]]
* ArtEvolution: [[Creator/AkiraToriyama Toriyama]] proves that he can draw more than OnlySixFaces with this game.
* AttackReflector: You can swat certain projectiles back at your enemies, such as fireballs and the bodkin's arrows.
* BigBad: Xiphos the Deathbringer.
* BonusBoss:The Mirror Bosses.
* DangerousSixteenthBirthday
* DiscOneFinalDungeon: The titular Tower of Mirrors.
* EvilOverlord: Xiphos the Deathbringer.
* ExcusePlot: Play it for the gameplay. Otherwise, you'll be sorely disappointed.
%%* GorgeousPeriodDress
* GratuitousFrench: Fleurette, in spades.
* HelloInsertNameHere: Your hero's name is never spoken aloud in voiced dialogue, but shortly after you complete the mission with Fleurette, she gives you a nickname, and uses it to address you from that point on.
* LimitBreak: Mighty Strikes. Each sword you acquire gives you access to a new one.
* MiniGame
* NewGamePlus: Payback Mode which allows you to start with Xiphos's weapon, the Deathbringer sword.
* OrnamentalWeapon: Your companions wield weapons (Anlace has a rapier, and Fleurette and Claymore use staves), but they never use them, instead traveling along with you to provide spell backup.
* PaletteSwap: All of the Mirror Bosses.[[spoiler:and Edahs Sohpix who is a nastier version of the final boss.]]
* SequelEscalation: The first game was actually a motion-controlled toy which predated the Wii that basically let kids walk down a straight path while whacking monsters. This game greatly improves upon the concept.
* SdrawkcabName: All of the mirror bosses have them. For starters, Der Gib (Big Red), Nomeg (Gemon), Salta (Atlas), Valgirt (Triglav), Nomegoen (Neogemon), and [[spoiler:Edahs Sohpix (Xiphos Shade).]]
* ThemeNaming: All of the major characters (and most of the locations) are named after types of swords.
** Examples include Prince Anlace, Fleurette, Claymore, Minister Misericorde (Kanzler Katzbalger in the German version) and Queen [[StealthPun Curtana]].
* TrueFinalBoss: [[spoiler: Edahs Sohpix may count,considering you have to beat the game to access the Old Reflectory,then defeat all the mirror bosses which unlocks his boss fight where you refight Valgirt Nedlog, Nomegoen and Der Gib before fighting him.]]
* WhiteMage: Fleurette, a priestess, specializes in healing magic.
