As I was cooking today, I noticed how I was holding the frying pan (wow, frying pan. That's a change from my wok.) like I would with my shinai. (bamboo sword.) Which reminded me of Shinobu and her weapon of choice. I was wondering what your favorite anime weapon is. Let's try for non-projectiles if possible. They're more funny. (Although the dimensional cannon from Tenchi Muyo: In Love was pretty cool too.) As for me? Well, Sukurudo Hammer!!!:)

I love that avatar! XD So cute.. hee.

Puchiko's eye beam was cool, once she figured out how to do it right, LOL

anime weapon? I really don't know.... it's a battle between a regular gun and the traditional katana....

can you be a little more specific? Who's Katana? Who's gun? For Example: Trigung's Gun Vs. Alacard's Gun. Kenshin's Katanna Vs. Zoro's.

Any non-projectile based weapon from Houshin Engi!
The Megaphone that freezes people when you speak out their name through it has great potential (think it's called KuEiKou)
but I'd probably want the Bankou (Those gravity increasing baubles), Kotenka's light sabre thingy or BunChuu's whip thingy....
I also like ShinKoHyo's funny lightning creating 'brush'...

Aaahhh... the magical yen piece that Miss Hinako used in that one Ranma OAV. Whenever she used it on people with fighting spirits, it would suck their energy and she would change from a small little kid to a super sexy woman. Hehe, I totally want that ability.

For some reason the "Venus Love-Me Chain" has always amused me as well... ^_^;; Yay for Sailor Moon.

I know I mention Berserk WAY too much, but I love Gatsu's sword...How can you not love a sword that has a length that is longer than the users body...it's just rediculous! People don't even believe how he can pick the thing up ^^

Here's a nice little one. Hunter X hunter. Kurapika's chain. With all the special attacks that kick so much butt. Judgement Chain!!!

You mean besides my Gimme Cat claws?

Well, there is this character from Soul Taker who has a huge medical needle as a weapon. Even though I hated the anime with a burning passion, I like the big fat medical props.

Cloud's buster sword was definatly a ground breaker too.

Grave's (Gungrave) Cerberus and Coffin! Or Wolfwood's cross-punisher (from the Kaiyodo Trigun figures)

wait... those aren't anime weapons. Drat.

Just saw the first ep of FLCL today... so I have to say I like Haruko using her bass guitar as a mallet. But...o.O I just wish she wouldn't hurt her instrument like that *hugs lovely bass*

Ah, it's okay. You have to remember that she can bat a falling meteor with that guitar of her's. It's built to last.:D Why? Because Ukele's just doesn't cut it.:p

A toss-up between Dilandau's Crima Claw and his Flamethrower (nasty suckers, those!) ;)

Well, I *like* mecha weapons.

Personal-sized, I'd have to go with some bad-ass sword...

Foxwolfe

Hmm lets see, my favorite weapon (even though its more of a technique) would have to be the sexy commando!

As for actual weapons, the laser rifle Kaneda had in Akira was pretty bad ass. And Guts' sword in Berserk, not the really big one he has when hes older, but the one he had when he first joined up with the hawks.

*Dilandau's flamethrower [mmmmm Dilandau....]
*Ryna's whip
*P-chan, when Ranma discides to use him as a weapon [Martial *Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics]
*The ducky training potty, as used by Mousse

And most importantly, Ryuichi's Kumagoro. "KUMAGORO.... BEAM!

The SDF-1 had a pretty sweet cannon too...

Hehe, this reminds me of the 'which comic book hero would win if...' discussions I used to have with my friends when we were little.

The well..arms from ARMS those hings are just narsty cool looking!
XD

I actually get to use a REAL one during my new photoshoot,just like I got a real handgun for duo ^^;;

I believe that should be S&W . Not to stick on details, but S&M is something different entirely.

It's actually a game, of course, but I think I'll go with Ivy's chain sword from Soul Calibur. That sword's almost as cool as Ivy herself. Mmm. Ivy.

While we're on the subject of Soul Calibur, I'd have to rank Nightmare's Soul Edge itself. Wait, it called Soul Edge? Or is it Soul Calibur? Or is Soul Calibur the good version of the sword? Whatever, you know what I mean.

The firing of the Wave Motion gun from Star Blazers (Yamato) always makes me a little teary-eyed too.

Honorable mentions:
-Shishio's flame-sword weapon/technique from Rurouni Kenshin
-The laser beam that eminates from the SDF-1's crotch when it's firing all weapons at the end of the original Macross series. Call me weird but a city-sized robot with a crotch beam is just sort of cool.
-I'm sure I'll think of more

But if I have to go with an anime weapon.. .hm... I guess... InuYasha's Tetsuraiga o_o; How can you go wrong with a big f$cking sword that goes down to normal size in its sheath?

omg. .. a snub nose can't do JACK. . . their accuracy goes no better than what. .. 20 feet?? LoL..
but yea. .i'm just talking Real life. .
i'm sure the character who uses it kicks assage or something. . ^_^

oh yea. .I wish i could toss a fire ball!!
just like those monks did on CNN!!!!

Midvalley the Horn-freak ( Trigun ) has the coolest weapon! I want a saxophone that can blow things apart with it's sound.

EDIT: Gene Starwind's Caster rocks as well.

I just have comment about the crotch laser. Has anyone seen turn A Gundam? Have you seen where the cockpit is? (No pun intended. But it happened anyways.) On that note, the moonlight butterfly sounds cool, looks cool, but I still don't quite know what it does exactly.

Twin Buster Rifle!!! That and Megaman's MegaBuster.

Oh great ._.; I had *meant* to put S&W for smith and wesson.

When I handled it before I never got to shoot it because reinhart said the recoil would be worse then the handguns,but it was so cute and tiny and shiny *_* -strokes- I don't care if I can't hit anything with it!

I'm trying to remember though if the Snubnose was the one reinhart said had a penny entrance hole and a popcan exit hole x.x;;

Hasn't anyone mentioned the infamous mallet yet? An anime girls best friend, I must say - definitely gets your point across (unless your prey has a thick skull :P)

Thick skulls are usually the reason why the fangirl-mallet-o-DOOM is usually used. ^^

My favorite weapon is the Lance of Longinus in Evangelion! That's sort of like Rei's Eva's weapon.

onion knight
11-17-2004, 11:49 AM
The lance of longinus is uber cool ,but what about rei's priestess scrolls in sailor moon?
Final fantasies X and X-2 have some great weapons even though their not animes.I especially like tidus' caladbolg,all of lulu's dolls and yuna's nirvana.The claws from the berserker dressphere in X-2 are cool too.

Would you say that clow cards are weapons too?I love them all especially the watery,the freeze,the jump and the mirror cards.

11-17-2004, 05:18 PM
Hmmm.......
Tough question but here it goes.

Harukos Rickenbacker from FLCL. Just something about smashing people on the head with a guitar that really appeals to me.

Wolfwoods punisher, it's got everything! Machine gun, rocket launcer and a whole mess of pistols. What more could you want.

And although it's from a video game Squalls gunblade. Sure, it would never work in real life but it's still cool for a fantasy weapon.

11-19-2004, 02:28 AM
I can't forget Sailor Neptune/Michiru's Aqua Mirror. That was a deadly feminine weapon ;).

my favorite anime weapon has got to be the Sword of Dios that Utena uses. either that or Tasuki's harisen from Fushigi Yugi.

Tesusiaga & Tensaiga from InuYasha
Ivy's sword from Soul Caliber II
Yayoi's gun from Nightwalker
Shido's sword (Nightwalker)

I'm also quite fond of bow and arrows. ^_^
