The Broccoli Sword's purely positive stat bonuses and its level requirement of 1 makes this one of the best low level weapons in the game; it's tied in terms of tier with the NG Lollipop. It was one of the five weapons added to the game with the DLC Pink Knight Pack. The level requirement for the PS3 version of the game is 15, making it much less useful in that version.
- This is the highest defense weapon for level 1.
- This is one of the 2 highest defense weapons for level 5. The other is the Carrot.
- The Broccoli Sword is a stalk of broccoli attached to a mushroom to form a hilt, with the buds acting as a guard and the stalk as the blade.
- As with all other DLC weapons, this weapon can be temporarily obtained in a multiplayer game if a player who has it equipped picks up another weapon, allowing a different player to pick it up. This acquisition isn't permanent and will be lost after disconnecting or re-equipping.
