My favorite would have to be Squall's Lionheart from FF8, now that sword was totally bad ass. Everything about it was awesome, it was huge, had a cool color design, and insanely strong.

Hmmm... Well, I liked the goofy looking Ultima Weapon from FF IX..and also alot of Amarants claws were cool.. One of Steiners swords were fuckin cool looking too. Laughing Out Loud Garnets little racquet things were stupid though..and so were Eikos flutes. Vivi kicked all ass though, with his staffs.. Especially that nice one you get from the Chocobo search deal.. Beatrix has a cool sword too.. Too bad Kuja didn't have a sword or something, probably would have been neat.

Quistis' Slaying Tail was cool..just because it was named after Sleipner. I like that horsie. :P Lion Heart was alright..but I liked Punishment better. Just looked cooler to me..and has a cooler name. Selphies Morning Star was cool, because of the Castlevania reference..heh. Irvy's guns never really got my attention..neither did Rinoas weapons, since I can't stand Rinoa. >.<

Haven't played FF X, so dunno about that. But Lulu's moogle and cactuar dolls look cute..heh.

All of Clouds swords kinda sucked..only because they were as big as him, and his arms were puny. Only way he would have held them up is if they were plastic.. Barrets drill arm..thing that time was alright. Aeris..bleh, who cares about her. Laughing Out Loud Cait Sith was an annoying character..but I liked his Megaphone as a weapon.. And Red like..used his fuckin mohawk as a weapon, which was cool. o.o Vincent was ultimate coolness anyways..and even though he uses guns, he still makes it look good. Unless the gun barrel is long..and when he spins it on his finger when he wins..looks like he's gonna drop it. Laughing Out Loud Sephiroths Masamune is NOT cool. It's again, as big as he is, or bigger. And plus, the only Masamunes that are allowed in games are the one from CT and the one from SotN. =P Yuffie sucks too..didn't really notice her weapons..same for Cid.

Have only played FF IV otherwise.. and I just know that a Staff in Tellahs hands is useless. Damn old bastard can't hit shit! >.< Dark Knight Cecil was also waaaaay cooler than Paladin Cecil, even though Paladin Cecil is more attractive..ah well, guess he had to sacrifice one thing to get the other. Laughing Out Loud

I have played FF 1 as well..but it's just too hard for me. Alot of old NES RPGS are.. I haven't played FF VI though.. o.o Well, I have..but I've never really made it much past the first boss.. I'll get to play that game someday though.

And yeah well..enough rambling.

I've only played Final Fantasy I, II, III, V, and VIII. Well, actually, I didn't really play Final Fantasy I. I actually just watched my older brother play it. He did get all the way up to the final boss, though. He lost, though. I think it was because of the Rub mgic that's instant death, and he just kept using it. I only played a little bit of the game after he was done and gave the game to me. But I still think Final Fantasy III is the best Final Fantasy game ever. My favorite weapon would be (I forget it's name) Atma Weapon? Ultima Weapon? It was equippable by almost any charcter. I liked the blue glow.

My fav has to Aurons Masamune from FFX. That sword is jsut kickass! I also liked that weird water sword Tidus got, and Lulu's weapons are jsut hilarious, little walking dolls. Yuna is just, bleh. Her weapons suck and I hate the character. The Buster Sword was okay, the first time I saw it it freaked the shit out of me, though.

I think they might get permission, maybe.

But can Gunblades actually shoot, or is the gun part for looks?

I'm probably wrong buti think they can only shoot magic, if you look at a close up pic the blade is right through the middle of the barrel.

The gunblade is a stupid anime idea. BUT IT SORT OF EXISTED.



The old GNMP visitor center had examples of a similar revolver/knife thing on display. I've seen it, so I can vouch for...yes virginia, there was a santa claus gunblade.

This was a thing people made and sold, trying to marry a bayonet and pistol like that. Whether intentionally or not the final fantasy developers creating a weapon people would remember kinda riffed on a 19th century thing.

Unless everybody knew that. But even so, look at this thing, it's bananas.

This concept, which now that I think about it/google it wasn't just the 19th century, never really gained widespread acceptance. At least with militaries because the idea just doesn't really work. It's one of those deals where conceptually maybe it makes sense but in practice it doesn't pan out really.

In ww1 from my understanding the British very briefly toyed with the idea of a bayonet on a webley revolver and then quickly realized "this isn't worth it, fuck it".

edit: I googled it and this may seem familiar to nec since it was in one of those assassin creed games apparently. Or some kind of pistol sword.

Seems like the added weight to a sidearm would kill accuracy and increase fatigue.

Yeah that was probably why it never really caught on as a concept.

You have a knife that's unwieldy and a pistol that's cumbersome to aim. So pretty much the worst of both worlds.

That second one just doesn't make sense even looking at it cause it's like a bowie knife bolted onto a single-shot pistol. At that point it's like...just hold the knife in one hand and the pistol in the other.
