Character with a weapon that lights up?

For a while I've thought about making a cosplay that has lights in it, but since I haven't really watched anything lately, I just can't come up with characters that has the kind of effect and that I actually like. So I'd like to hear if you guys have anything in mind. I'd prefer an anime character (or at least a game or cartoon character).

I believe the guns in Psycho-Pass have lots of light up bits. Also, although it's not anime and it's on the costume itself rather than a weapon, there's always Tron. Tons of light-up stuff there.
Done: Captain Malcolm Reynolds (Firefly); Eleventh Doctor (Doctor Who); Captain Levi (Shingeki no Kyojin); Captain Jack Harkness (Doctor Who); Vash the Stampede (Trigun); The Kid (Bastion)

In progress: Booker Dewitt (Bioshock Infinite) - 90%; Steampunk'd Han Solo (Star Wars) - 98%; Connor Kenway (Assassin's Creed III) - 30%; Max Rockatansky (Mad Max series) - 35%; Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Captain America: TWS) - planning

Future: Mal Reynolds (improved), Jaime Lannister (GoT)

honestly, you can add light up effects to any prop and it'll be cool and add an extra touch to your cosplay even if it doesn't actually canonically light up in the series. as far as suggestions, a lot of LoL characters seem to have lit or glowing weapons

There's Zero from the Mega Man X games. Just get a green light saber and you're all set. Of course, I never said the rest of the costume would be easy...
