xandermartin98

The Top Ten

1 BFG 9000 (Doom)

One word(not really a real word): OP

2 R. Y. N. O. (Ratchet & Clank)

All of the RYNO'S in rachet and clank are op

Rip You a New One - xandermartin98

In the first game it's a cool weapon, it's basically a missile launcher except if throws tons of missiles at the same time. In Up Your Arsenal, it's basically a gun that throws balls and these balls litteraly disintegrates all ennemies around. The most OP weapon I've ever seen. It makes NG+ a joke. - MaxPap

Someone help me to collect all the cards
This must be really handy for the final boss

3 Farsight Xr-20 (Perfect Dark)
4 Metal Blade (Mega Man 2)
5 LVL 3 Super Missile Launcher (Cave Story)
6 Auto Shotgun (Left 4 Dead)
7 LVL 2 Blade (Cave Story)
8 The Spur (Cave Story)
9 Crissaegrim (Castlevania: SOTN)
10 Hyper Mode (Metroid Prime 3)

The Contenders

11 Small Chainsaw (Dead Rising)
12 Golden Hammer (Super Smash Bros.)
13 Razorblade Typhoon (Terraria)
14 Fierce Deity Sword (Zelda: Majora's Mask)

It Kos almost everything in one hit. Bosses (even the final boss) take about 30 seconds to kill with it.

15 Golden Gun (GoldenEye)
16 Blue Shell (Mario Kart) Blue Shell (Mario Kart) The spiny shell, commonly referred to as the blue shell, is a well-known power-up item of the Mario Kart series of video games.

The problem is that yes it's OP but for the guy that throwed the shell (probably something like 5-7th place) it doesn't do anything for him, it's just meant to piss off the guy at 1st place. - MaxPap

17 Combustion HellFire (Borderlands 1)
18 Hyper Beam (Super Metroid)
19 Cerebral Bore (Turok)
20 Awp Sniper Rifle (Counter Strike)
21 Bowser Shell (Mario Kart: Double Dash!!)
22 Pistol (Halo: Combat Evolved)

Hm, I need to take out a hunter pair. Should I use rockets, or my trusty pistola? Silly question. Seriously, it has a scope and it's three shots to kill in multiplayer. I'm surprised this isn't already on the list.

23 Apocalypse Arm (Chrono Trigger)
24 Karmic Retribution (Undertale)

This isn't a weapon. This is an effect. - Ultron123

25 Flamethrower (Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number)
26 Berserker Rage (Borderlands)
27 Robot Suit (Henry Hatsworth In the Puzzling Adventure)
28 Infinity (Borderlands 2)
29 Meta Knight's Sword (Super Smash Bros. Brawl)

True. Very OP - MaxPap

30 Home-Run Bat (Super Smash Bros.)
31 Ragnell (Super Smash Bros. Brawl)
32 Bottle Rocket (Earthbound)
33 Real Knife (Undertale)

It's not really overpowered since you can't use it except against Sans who dies in one hit anyway, and in this battle it's outclassed by the burnt pan that gives you extra healing when eating food.

34 Tommy Gun (Timesplitters 2)
35 Splat Roller (Splatoon)

This is not that frustrating! Try Dynamo Roller!

Only OP at close range. - MaxPap

36 Master Blade (Kirby and the Amazing Mirror)
37 Golden Master Sword (Zelda: A Link to the Past)
38 Cyclone (Muramasa: The Demon Blade)
39 LVL 3 Machine Gun (Cave Story)
40 Whip (Earthworm Jim 1)

To balance out the difficulty a bit more for expert players, the developers should have made it so that using the whip deals self-inflicted damage to Jim. It would be a lot more realistic and also a lot more fun.

41 Plasma Cannon (Earthworm Jim 2)
42 Barn Burner (Earthworm Jim 2)
43 Hadouken (Mega Man X)
44 Psycho Crusher (Street Fighter 2)
45 Ore Club (Super Smash Bros.)

GOOD GOD, this powerup...

46 Little Mac's Fists (Super Smash Bros.)
47 Sentries (Team Fortress 2)

You Vs. level 3 sentry= R.I.P.

48 Infinity Launcher (Resident Evil 4)
49 Chicago Typewriter (Resident Evil 4)
50 LVL 9 Judge Hammer (Super Smash Bros.)
