Azure Dragon Sword is a type of blade used by the Bear Thief and Yamcha. It is a scimitar, possibly based on various Chinese broadswords such as the niuweidao (牛尾刀; lit. "Ox Tail Saber") and the liuyedao (柳叶刀; lit. "Willow Leaf Saber").
The Bear Thief and Yamcha's swords appear different in design, possibly because of their different sizes and the user customizing their blade: the Bear Thief's sword is somewhat rough with ridges on the back, while Yamcha's Azure Dragon sword is more ornate with a tassel on the handle and gold designs.
Yamcha's blade is able to combat against Goku's Power Pole. He releases his sword after Goku hits him in the stomach with the Power Pole. This happens in both the Dragon Ball anime series and the movie Dragon Ball: Curse of the Blood Rubies.
