Fantasy Weapons

The world of gaming has introduced us to some incredible weapons that (through science and technology) we hope to see in reality in the future – not because we’re violent, but because these weapons gave our heroes an awesome edge. Here are some of my favorite ones:

1. Ebony & Ivory:

Dante’s trademark pair of personally customized, semi-automatic pistols, are designed to rapidly fire bullets instilled with his demonic power, and are the only weapons to appear in every installment in the series Devil May Cry:

2. Winter Blast:

Bio-engineering your own body through Plasmids is probably the closest we can hope to becoming a Jedi. In the BioShock series; this is an active Plasmid that instantly freezes solid a target enemy or object:

3. Master Sword:

Also known as The Blade of Evil’s Bane from the Zelda series. Din’s Flame imbued the sword with the power to repel evil, a power apparently augmented after the sword received the blessing of Zelda:

4. Plasma Whip:

Our brave Lombax Ratchet is the one who wields this  weapon manufactured by Gadgetron. The whip has the ability to power up after extended use (to the Quantum and Omega whip) allowing for its range and damage to be upgraded:

5. Thermal Detonator:

Ok; i apologize already for not putting the light-saber under the Star Wars slot, but this grenade deserves some applause. Its like a micro-nuke.  The result of it’s explosion is an expanding particle field that can atomize any material that does not conduct heat or thermal energy within the fixed blast radius (6 meters on average):

6. Thrustodyne Aeronautics Model 23:

Or more commonly known as the Jet Gun. You can find this gun in the Call of Duty Transit zombie mode. Basically it is a jet engine mounted on your shoulder. Suck zombies in the front; and spit liquid/mince out the back:

Yes of course i have other favorites, but i wanted to list a range of varied weapons. The Portal and Gravity gun are way up on the list of respect. As is Wolverine’s Adamantium claws. Let me know what your favorite fantasy weapons are?
