One of the coolest thing of the anime world is the weird but powerful weapons they use.
Yes I agree many of the anime don’t use weapons and techniques like Kamehameha can destroy them all, but still I enjoy seeing these weapons in action.
So today we’ll cover 15 weird but powerful weapons that exist in anime.
Without wasting any more time lets dive into it.
1. Phallic Shaped Weapons (Dororon Enma-kun)
These weapons may be real, but they look suspiciously erect when grasped that way…
2. Lettustanets (Tokyo Mew Mew)
At least they squirt water at enemies? Tokyo Mew Mew features a lot of mundane objects being used as weapons.
It’s pretty impressive.
3. Spear Of Longinus (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
Well this is an ancient extraterrestrial artifact and yes you guessed it right it was develop by extraterrestrial life form.
The spear resembles a massive, double helix styled red bident capable of killing inter-dimensional god-like creatures.
4. The Spoon (Re:Zero)
Really … A spoon.
5. Panties and Stockings (Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt)
Panties turn to guns and stockings turn to swords.
6. The Punisher (Trigun)
It’s a 300 pound, cross shaped gun! The thing has to be unwieldy, but it wins from a design perspective.
7. Giant Scissor Blades (Kill La Kill)
The most notable appearances of these things are in Kill la Kill, Akame ga Kill!, and Gatchaman Crowds.
Anime doesn’t care about the killing power of normal scissors, you have to go bigger.
8. Blood Anything (Beyond the Boundary)
Just how much blood would you have to lose shooting blood bullets?, How much iron would you need in your body to summon a decent sword? Who cares, at least it looks cool!
9. Saiga’s Camera (Speed Grapher)
Saiga can make anyone explode just by taking their picture.
It all works out, trust me.
10. Bubbles (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency)
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure will turn anything into a deadly weapon, but I’m totally biased towards Caesar’s bubbles. Those things would really sting your eyes.
11. Razor Floss (Akame Ga Kill)
The favored weapon of assassins has to be the razor floss. This thin material is waved around and has the ability to slice through anything. Too bad that’s not how razor line is used in real combat.
Razor floss is a trap weapon. It can easily decapitate a speeding motorist, or it can be used in trench warfare to slow advancing troops.
Sadly, you won’t see anyone swinging this floss around to slay their enemies.
12. Scythes (Seraph Of The End)
Let me preface by saying that scythe-type weapons do exist – the Chinese “Ge” and the Japanese “Kusarigama.” They look nothing like the scythes anime popularized.
The ones in anime are larger versions of farming scythes. Normal scythes are heavy and have a sharp curve, which is perfect for cutting wheat, but not that useful when fighting a human.
Anime scythes are even bigger and have an exaggerated curve. The users would be better off with a mace.
13. Torpedo Breasts (Sasami-san at Ganbaranai)
Let’s get literal, fam. This is why we have anime. I don’t believe what i have watched.
14. Rose (Sailor Moon)
Tuxedo Mask has a supply of roses, that when thrown, can pierce anything.
Pretty cool, yeah? Too bad he uses these things just so he can give a pep talk to the Senshi before disappearing.
15. DEATH NOTE (Death Note)
Yes guy death note i think i don’t need to tell you what it is as this is the most famous anime on the planet.
