The Long Sword is with the Magic Brassard, Monica Raybrandt's starting melee weapon in Dark Cloud 2 (if you do not count the Royal Sword she has in the Tutorial battle). As a sword, it's not really effective against armored enemies or similar enemies encountered in Dungeons and it has no special abilities.
Its in-game description reads "Monica's favorite. So-so attack, but easy to use."
It has the slow 5-hit combo sword and it's speed attack is good for beginning, just as fast as Max's wrench attacks. The sword will knock back the enemy at the 5th combo, but Monica will knock back the enemy at the 3rd attack is the directional stick is pressed forward before starting the combo.
You can also charge the attack by holding the X button : Monica will prepare her sword, and will shine, so you can release the X button to launch this powerful attack : Monica will jump in the air, useful for evading any enemy attack, and will land on the ground, releasing a shock wave, causing damage around Monica.
When it runs out of Weapon Hit Points (WHP), it won't deal any damage to any enemy until the weapon is repaired.
As a low-tier weapon (Tier 2), it will gain 3 Synthesis Points (SP) after every level-up.
The Long Sword can be built up into a Bastard Sword when it's reaches the following stats : 21 in Attack, 19 in Smash and 14 in Beast.
Or it can also be built into a Broad Sword when the following stats are reached : 20 in Attack, 19 in Cyclone and Exorcism.
