In "Make Love, Not Warcraft", it was said that the sword was planned to be put in the game, but was cancelled due to it being too powerful. It was subsequently stored on a 1 gigabyte flash drive. An employee named Salzman, a worker in Blizzard's accounting sector, created a prophecy that one day those who were worthy of holding the sword would appear.
The boys were later forced to fight a "griefer" named Jenkins. Blizzard Entertainment allowed Randy Marsh's character to carry it, in order to give it to Stan. Stan then defeats Jenkins by using the sword in battle.
The weapon appears as a large sword, with a blue glow, that can unleash a series of attacks to another player.
- According to the staff during the show, the sword deals 120 damage per second, gives a boost of +80 Stamina, and can instantly drain an opponent's mana on a successful hit.
- Since the airing of "Make Love, Not Warcraft", the Sword of a Thousand Truths was featured in the World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade beta test as a reward to the game's arena system, although it did not have the same capabilities as in the show. The in-game caption read "Finely crafted to Salzman's specification".
- The Sword of a Thousand Truths has the same model as two in-game weapons in World of Warcraft called "The Hungering Cold" and "Slayer of the Lifeless". While they have the same model, they do not have the same abilities.
- The Sword of a Thousand Truths was also recreated for the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game, as part of its Fires of Outland set. The card has a similar power to its episodic counterpart, where upon dealing damage to the opponent, the opponent must discard all cards in their hand.
- The Sword of a Thousand Truths also appears in South Park Stick of Truth as junk.
