I Miotaseolaíocht na nGael, claíomh Nuada Airgeadláimhe ab ea Freagarthach (Sean-Ghaeilge Fragarach). Gaibhnithe ag na déithe, beartaíodh é de réir dealramh ach amháin ag an té dá bhúir an Lia Fáil ar a shon, agus dá fhreagairt i gcogar an claíomh.

Deirtear nárbh fhéidir bréag a insint nó bogadh fiú agus Freagarthach ag a mhuineál; gur chuir sé smacht ar an ngaoth ar iarratas an bheartóra; go raibh sé in ann gearradh trí sciath nó balla ar bith; agus go ndearna ar cneá ghéar ar dhuine nárbh fhéidir a leigheasadh.

Agus a lámh bainte de, ní raibh Nuada fóirsteanach a thuilleadh mar ri. Thogh sé Lugh ina ionad, ach ní insítear sna seanscéalta ar bheartaigh sé an claíomh Freagarthach i mbun catha.

Cultúr na ndaoine[cuir in eagar | athraigh foinse]

In The Riders of the Sidhe author Kenneth C. Flint first reveals the sword being wielded by Manannan Mac Lir who reveals to Lugh Lamfada that he just "borrowed" the sword and it is waiting for its rightful owner along with several other artifacts such as the Lia Fáil.

Science-fantasy author Patricia Kennealy Morrison uses Fragarach in her series The Keltiad. The sword is used by several of her protagonists over the course of the series.

Fragarach appears in the Dungeons & Dragons module The Temple of Elemental Evil as a sword that never misses and "answers" any strike to the wielder with a strike of its own. It later reappeared in 4th Edition as a sword destined to slay Thrumbolg, a powerful Fomorian lord.

In the visual novel Fate/hollow ataraxia and manga Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, the sword appears as the weapon of Bazett Fraga McRemitz. It is a weapon that, upon the activation of an opponent's strongest attack, reverses time and kills the enemy before they use their attack.

In the Digimon series, Fragarach is an extensible greatsword carried by Slayerdramon a Mega level Dragon Man Digimon.

In Diane Duane's novel A Wizard Abroad (part of her Young Wizards series), Fragarach is used by Annie Callahan as part of a reenactment of the Second Battle of Magh Tuireadh. Besides its common use as a weapon, Fragarach is used to open a gate to the parallel dimension where the Fomor and the Tuatha De Danaan reside.

In the game Mabinogi, Lugh Lavada and Morgant use this weapon as a main weapon. It has 3 different designs.

In the game Vindictus, the prequel to Mabinogi, the sword was originally owned by Lugh Lamhfada, however it was taken from him after his death by the player and has the tendency to appear in various times of need as a Deus ex machina.

In the PS3 game Folklore (known by the title Folkssoul in Japan), Answerer is a folk the player encounters and can capture in the fourth nether realm, the Endless Corridor.

In the manga Project ARMS, Keith Green utilizes a space-slicing technique he calls "Answerer". Later, his genetic template, Takashi Takatsuki/James Huang, uses this technique as well.

The sword appears in the series The Iron Druid Chronicles.[1]
