The Righteous Mace is sold as an Artifact in Lalivero in Golden Sun, and can be equipped by Isaac, Garet, and Mia. The Righteous Mace's Unleash effect is Blinding Smog (ブラインドスモッグ, Blind Smog?), which is an attack that is based on normal attack damage, adds 49 damage points, and then modifies the resulting damage based on the user's Jupiter Power and the target's Jupiter Resistance. The attack may also inflict Delusion on the target. Blinding Smog visually resembles the user attacking and a bright blue-tinted cloud being emitted upon impact.

In Golden Sun, it has the highest attack rating increase of the weapon artifacts sold in Lalivero, the last shop in the game, and those who equip it on Mia note that it has a sharp increase in attack over the Crystal Rod. If they actually use Mia for physically attacking, then this way of using it would be valid, but various players would prefer using the Crystal Rod, with an Unleash that has the far more desirable side-effect of instantly KO'ing the target. Depending on what weapons the party might have by Lalivero, this is likely to be a good buy, but may also be obsoleted by other weapons later.

In The Lost Age, it is sold in Contigo and can be equipped by Felix, Sheba, and Piers. The Righteous Mace's late availability in the Western Sea makes it similar to the Silver Blade in that it will be far, far out-powered by the equipment the party would surely have amassed by that point. This would, of course, relevantly apply to Isaac's party if it is still equipped with this mace when they join Felix, for many weapons would become available to serve as direct improvements over this mace.
