The Moonlight Greatsword can be obtained from Seath the Scaleless by cutting off his tail.
A very popular weapon for intensive Intelligence builds due to its high scaling. Its strong attack (be it one-handed or two-handed) releases a magic-based projectile that deals damage based on the Intelligence of the player, though it depletes some of its durability (20 per use one-handed, 40 per use two-handed), it's a very powerful attack with the right scaling, and its good reach makes it perfect for various situations, however, it requires a very specific build to be truly effective.
It also raises the player's magic defense by 40 points.
The Moonlight Greatsword's projectile will go through enemies that block it, potentially hitting a wall and exploding, hitting through the block and dealing full damage.
The Moonlight Greatsword cannot be enchanted.

- The Moonlight Greatsword closely resembles the Large Sword of Moonlight from Demon's Souls, which, in turn, resembles the Sword of Moonlight from the King's Field series.
- The Moonlight Greatsword is one of the four Dragon weapons that has a parameter bonus (the others being Priscilla's Dagger, Dragon Bone Fist and the Dragon Tooth).
- The Moonlight Greatsword also makes an appearance in Bloodborne's The Old Hunters DLC as a new trick weapon. It can still fire a blast of "moonlight" in its transformed state.
