Best Anime Weapons

Anime weapons can be awesome. There's different types of weapons too! Which one is the best? Here's mine and you're free to add your own.

The Top Ten

1 Zanpakuto - Bleach Zanpakuto - Bleach

This is known as the Soul Cutter Sword from Bleach. This is the main weapon that the shinigami uses and can be dangerous if you're the target of this blade. - RoseRedFlower

2 Guts’ Dragonslayer - Berserk Guts’ Dragonslayer - Berserk

This weapon is from Berserk. Guts' giant sword for slaying demons and is more like a bladed club due to its size. Plus, the blade becomes stronger over time throughout battle. Making this a strong blade that can kill evil spirits and vicious demons - RoseRedFlower

3 Maka Albarn's Scythe - Soul Eater Maka Albarn's Scythe - Soul Eater

Maka's scythe has the power to destroy evil and enhance its power with madness. The power of the black blood inside Soul can strengthen them to enormous lengths. In the manga, Maka is able to form a black blood dress around her that is a defense mechanism. All of this from one scythe. - RoseRedFlower

4 Kanade's Hand Sonic - Angel Beats Kanade's Hand Sonic - Angel Beats

Kanade can create different types of weapons. Each one has its own usage. Like defense, speed, attack etc. Plus, if you're as strong or as swift as Kanade, those are some powerful weapons to have. - RoseRedFlower

5 Ryuko’s Scissor Blade - Kill la Kill Ryuko’s Scissor Blade - Kill la Kill

A special blade/giant pair of scissors made for slashing through life fibers. This weapon is from Kill La Kill. The blade itself was made from hardened life fibers and it looks like a cool weapon too. - RoseRedFlower

Awesome weapon!

6 Grell's Chainsaw - Black Butler Grell's Chainsaw - Black Butler

I love how directors or writers can make the chainsaw look like a practical weapon. Plus the way Grell uses it is thrilling to watch. - RoseRedFlower

7 Three Dimensional Maneuver Gear - Attack On Titan Three Dimensional Maneuver Gear - Attack On Titan

The gear itself does look pretty cool. Plus for a civilization that still uses horses as the fastest way for transportation, the gear is pretty interesting. - RoseRedFlower

8 The Dominator - Psycho Pass The Dominator - Psycho Pass

A very unique kind of firearm. One that sends psychological data about the person and has four different modes. These modes are: Non-Lethal Paralyzer, Lethal Eliminator, Destroy Decomposer and its explosive variant. - RoseRedFlower

9 Death Note - Death Note Death Note - Death Note

This one I did switch it up a bit. The Death Note can be used as a weapon to kill. They even say it's the most deadliest weapon in their world. And if you know the name and face of your enemy, it is. - RoseRedFlower

10 Ea - Fate/Zero Ea - Fate/Zero

The Contenders

11 Excalibur - Fate Series Excalibur - Fate Series

EXCALIBUR! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

12 Tessaiga - InuYasha
13 Kunai - Naruto Kunai - Naruto

A small but deadly black dagger that is used in Naruto. It depends on how you use the kunai that can make the biggest difference. All kinds of ninjas use them but my favorite would have to be Minato from Naruto. - RoseRedFlower

14 Kurikara - Blue Exorcist
15 Murasame - Akame ga Kill!
16 Gate of Babylon - Fate Series Gate of Babylon - Fate Series

GATE OF BABYLON! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

17 Tsubaki Nakatsukasa - Soul Eater Tsubaki Nakatsukasa - Soul Eater

In a way, she does count as a weapon considering she can transform into a pair of nunchuck scythes (okay, they're just a pair of scythes connected by extendable chains, but I think the term "nunchuck scythes" fits the form perfectly) for Black Star to use. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

18 Gae Buidhe - Fate Series
19 Rose Branch Bow - Puella Magi Madoka Magica
20 Elucidator - Sword Art Online
21 Celestial Keys - Fairy Tail Celestial Keys - Fairy Tail
22 Jyugo's Shackles - Nanbaka
23 Crescent Rose - RWBY Crescent Rose - RWBY

I know RWBY isn't technically an anime, but this weapon is just plain awesome! It's a scythe that turns into a sniper rifle (or a dog toy, if you dangle a chicken off the end)! It's even become one of the most-recognizable pop-culture weapons in just 4 years! When people who don't even watch the show recognize one of the weapons, it's a sure sign that weapon is pure awesomeness.

24 Gae Bolg - Fate Series Gae Bolg - Fate Series

GAE BOLG! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

25 Ionioi Hetairoi - Fate Series Ionioi Hetairoi - Fate Series

IONIOI HETAIROI! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
