|“These are authentic replicas that would come in handy were you to live long enough to actually face a Grundle.”|
|— Rufus MacAllister|
Rufus informs Lloyd that Illuma-Swords would work well, as the Grundle is nocturnal and its weakness is light, but the shop only gives them out as a prize for winning a comic book trivia competition. Later, Lloyd loses the competition (due to the final question being from a last-issue comic that had just sold out) and the Grundle shows up. The Ninja grab the Illuma-Swords to defend against the Grundle, but they break easily as they are only props.
