Laser swords are weapons used throughout the galaxy. Betty and Maximus have fought against each other with laser swords on occasion. In one duel in which Betty defeated Maximus, Maximus cut off a lock of Betty's hair which he used to create the Betty Clones. (The Trouble with Triplets)
- The laser swords are an obvious pastiche of the lightsabers from Star Wars franchise. The colours are also consistent with Star Wars: Betty wields a blue laser sword, Blue, along with Green, are the two most prominent colours of the Jedi Order, and Maximus wields a red laser sword, which is the colour of those used by the evil Sith.
