Its in-game description reads "A sword that devours the souls of men."
This short sword, like the Small Sword, has the 6-hit combo, and it has very high stats if it's built up. If this sword is found, its stats won't be very balanced : there' only 3 stats which are high and the rest of the stats are at 0. But it's a powerful sword to have.
You can only find the Maneater in dungeons' chests : you cannot invent it or buy it.
The Maneater is a high-tier weapon (Tier 7) : it'll gain 6 Synthesis Points (SP) per level-up.
The Maneater can be built up into the Dark Cloud when it reaches the following stats : 135 in Attack, Cyclone and Smash and 90 in Flame and Chill. You must also defeat at least once a Castle Eater, a Count Balloon and a Bundy.
Or it can be built up into the Griffon Fork when it has the following stats : 134 in Attack and 135 in Chill, Cyclone, Smash and Exorcism. You must also defeat at least once a Clock Knight, a Guardia and a Miss Gourgon.
