|A vicious, curved sword.|
It may be purchased from Daga on Ape Atoll for 100,000 coins. A Monkeyspeak amulet does not need to be worn, as players can just right-click 'Trade' on Daga; however, you still must be in monkey form. Players who have freed King Awowogei in Recipe for Disaster can easily reach Ape Atoll through the Teleport to Ape Atoll spell (requires 64 Magic) to access Daga's shop on Ape Atoll more quickly. The scimitar is also a rare drop from the Wilderness boss Scorpia.
Players can attach a dragon scimitar ornament kit, obtained from elite clue scrolls, to cosmetically enhance the scimitar, creating a dragon scimitar (or). This only alters its appearance, and gives no stat enhancements. It can be dismantled, returning the scimitar and ornament kit.

A player wielding the dragon scimitar
The Dragon Scimitar has a special attack, Sever, which is more accurate and prevents the target from using protection prayers such as Protect from Magic, Protect from Missiles, and Protect from Melee for 5 seconds, costing 55% of the Special Attack energy. Sever does not affect the Protect Item prayer.
Comparison with other weaponsEdit
The dragon scimitar is arguably the sixth best one-handed training weapon in the game, behind the Abyssal tentacle, Abyssal whip, Abyssal dagger, Zamorakian hasta, and the Staff of the dead. However, due to whips and hastae being unable to solely train strength, the dragon scimitar is commonly used to do so, and is, therefore, regarded as one of the best weapons in the game to train strength.
In comparison, the Saradomin sword offers a +82 Strength bonus and +82 Slash attack. The Saradomin's blessed sword offers a +88 Strength bonus and +100 slash attack. The Abyssal whip offers a +82 Strength bonus and +82 slash attack. The Abyssal dagger offers a +75 Strength bonus and +75 stab attack.

- The dragon scimitar was not actually released until almost four months after the release of the Monkey Madness quest on 29 March 2005.
- If the player asked Zeke to sell them a dragon scimitar, he would say, "Seriously, you'll be a monkey's uncle before you'll ever hold a dragon scimitar." Interestingly enough (well, not very interestingly, but, you know, it's something), in the Monkey Madness quest, the player plays the role of a monkey's uncle to complete a certain part of the quest.
