What are the most iconic anime weapons?

Most of us grew up watching action anime with heart-pounding action. And nothing makes us more excited than the fight scenes within the show. Some even mimic the moves that the protagonist broke out against the bad guys in the said scenes. Most of the time, our heroes would go out of the battle triumphant. Pure skills? It might be. We can't take away the fact that these fictional characters have their abilities. For example, the shinobis and kunoichis from Naruto use ninjutsu to take down their foes. In One Piece, Monkey D. Luffy defeats his enemies with the help of his elastic limbs. But is it only their ability alone that helped these anime heroes conquer their battles?

Not all anime characters were born superhuman traits and godlike abilities. Some only happen to have the right skill to wield some of the strongest swords and firearms in the anime universe. If you've come to know what are the best anime armaments out there, you are at the right place. Our team curated a list of the most iconic weapons in anime that made a lasting impression on the fans all over the world. In the collection below, you can see weapons used by some of the characters from acclaimed anime shows such as Bleach and Fate/Zero, among others. Do you want to compare each piece of equipment featured? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below!

    Sword Cutlass Pistols

    Sword Cutlass Pistols is a pair of handgun custom-built gunslingers for the gunslinger and outlaw Revy. It is a pair of stainless-steel Beretta M9 handguns armed with custom ivory grips and extended slides. And to add to the piratical design, the grips have an engraved inlay of Calico Jack’s famed skull-and-crossbones insignia. Revy dual-wields the handguns very efficiently, crossing out enemies as fast and as many as possible.

    Scissor Blade

    After the assassination of Ryuko Matoi finds Senketsu, a sentient school uniform, and the gigantic red scissor blade he created. The Scissor Blade is capable of changing size, from a keychain-sized trinket it can grow into a massive greatsword when in Decapitation Mode.

    In Arthurian legends, Excalibur is the name of the blade that King Arthur wields. But in the anime Fate/Zero, King Arthur is a young lady named Arturia, and her sword is usually kept invisible to hide her true identity. When revealed, Excalibur can reach the maximum potential of its power. And when Arturia uses her powers to amplify the sword, it can become a laser-type weapon that emits beams of energy capable of crushing fortresses and pulverizing entire armies.

    In Bleach, each Shinigami wield a zanpakuto or a sentient sword. The anime's protagonist Ichigo owns what is known as Zangetsu. It is an intimidating-looking sword that can morph into different forms. And being a sentient weapon that can be anything, Ichigo can literally talk to Zangetsu in human form. As a result of their communication, Ichigo and Zangetsu are able to work closely together to be a force to reckon with.
