The Witchblade is a conscious, intelligent, and ancient weapon with supernatural origins. It is one of thirteen mystical artifacts, of which several have been revealed: the Witchblade, the Angelus, the Darkness, The Ember Stone, The Glacier Stone, The Rapture, The Blood Sword, The Spear of Destiny, and The Wheel of Shadows.

It is the offspring of the universe's opposing aspects, The Darkness and The Angelus. The Witchblade is a male aspect created to act as a balance, which must have a female as a host.

The Witchblade was discovered in modern times in Greece by Kenneth Irons, but before he found it, it had many wielders. When not in use, it can look like an ornate, jewel encrusted, right-handed gauntlet. When wielded by an unworthy user, that person will lose their arm. It forms a symbiotic relationship with the host, who can hear the Witchblade. When used, it expands across the body of the wielder, often shredding clothes and covering the body like armor. The amount and coverage of the armor depends on the level of the threat. For example, when facing mortals, it will usually generate less armor than when facing a demon of hell. This armor can produce extensions of itself that can form swords, other stabbing weapons, hooks, chains, shields, and wings, enabling the wielder to fly. It may also become temperamental if the wielder chooses not to use it. When wielded, it can shoot energy blasts from the hand or sword, fire projectile darts, and whip-like grapples to attack or to climb. The Witchblade is also an excellent lock pick, and can heal wounds, even mortal ones. The Witchblade can re-animate the dead, emphatically show the wielder scenes of great trauma, and allow the wielder to relive experiences from past wielders as dreams.

Following the events in the First Born mini-series, the Witchblade was split into two parts. One half belongs to Dani while Sara has reclaimed the other half. However, the Witchblade originally being the balance between the forces of Darkness and Light, it was revealed in the recent "War of the Witchblades" story-arc that each half of the Witchblade represented one of the two primal forces: Sara having the Darkness one and Dani the Light. This led to changes in the personality of the characters, especially Sara. Encouraged by the leaderless Angelus Warriors and the mysterious Tau'ma, both wielders eventually ended up in all out war for the complete control of the Witchblade which concluded with Sara victorious and once again in control of the full Witchblade
