True to its name, Aladdin's weapon is similar to that of an Arabian scimitar. The Scimitar is very basic in appearance. The hilt of the sword is gold, the cross-guard is slanted, and the pommel is a simple sphere. The blade itself is thick—much thicker than a normal scimitar blade. The blade is colored silver, and it is curved.
In Aladdin, Jafar casts a line of scimitars lodged in the ground to keep Aladdin from Genie's lamp. Aladdin then picks one up to fight Jafar, who had transformed into a giant snake.
