The OP admits that they are fictional.

The question is if they had been made, what type of weapon would they have been. This boils down to basically a history question of what type of sword a king or great hero would have had during the times when these legends supposedly took place.

There's maybe some speculation and opinion involved, but I believe that the question can be answered fairly factually by citing known high-end weapons of that time period and those locations for comparison to get a general idea of the weapon types that they would most likely be.

I'm not an expert on ancient swords, but I'm guessing we can rule out lightsabers.

There's no need to attack the OP. There's a perfectly valid GQ here.
