AP 667 - Joke Weapon

Post by VicMonado »

What are your favorite joke weapons in anime? So either weapons that look stupid or do stupid things.

All I can think of are ridiculous weapons like Nicolas D Wolfwood's huge cross weapon from Trigun.

It's an odd choice of weapon since it seems to be too cumbersome to be practical.

[Edit]
I now recall a couple more after some thought:
(2) The boxing gloves used by the titular character of Ryoko Okami from Ōkami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi (Okami-san and Her Seven Companions) are these ridiculously cute kitty designs, but she's lethal with them just the same.

(3) Finally, the series Mahoromatic is full of ridiculous, over-the-top action, and the "breast missiles" do not disappoint:

[Edit 2] (She's not the titular character for nothing!)
Wherever you go... there you are.

The only thing I can think of is the rose, like how Tuxedo Mask and Kurama throw. I guess you can say that they are using magic to enhance it to be powerful (Kurama makes his into a whip) but it's still pretty funny to use in a combat sense.
Don't get left, just get on your good foot.
