Top 10 Favorite Anime/Manga Swords

Here are some of my favorite swords from anime and manga! This is not about power but whether or not I like them. And be glad SAO is not on here!

10. Scissor Blade from Kill la Kill


This scissor…sword thing is the only blade that can cut through the alien threads, It is made to save humanity…. from clothes. I like the design, and it is red.


9. Sakabato from Rurouni Kenshin


Probably the least practical sword in this list. I guess the better term to use is least lethal. This reverse blade has its blade in the back side.


8. Hand Sword from Fullmetal Alchemist


Not really a sword, but I loved how it was done, and how it is made instantly with alchemy.


7. Senbonzakura Kageyoshi from Bleach

I am not a Bleach fan, but I cannot overlook the elegance of this weapon. It is beautiful as well as lethal.


6. Sekki from Noragami


This is a sword made from divine intervention and loyalty. Sekki is Yukine’ ghost made into a holy weapon. The blade is very clean and very simple!


5. Tessaiga from Inuyasha


You all know where this is from.


4. Ragnorak from Soul Eater


Ragnorak is a weapon that is infused with black blood and is attached to its user. In sword form, there is a mouth on the blade, and its scream vibrates the sword to cut anything. The thought of using scream to turn this into a saw was ingenious, and for that, it is number 4!


3. Shusui from One Piece


Before Zoro, it was used by reanimated corpse of legendary swordsman Ryuma. This sword is heavy and violent, and even Zoro has some difficult mastering it, but it is probably his strongest sword.


2. Excalibur from Fate series

The image is done by  Silver-Fate on Deviant Art.


Probably the name of the most famous sword in the world. This is the sword of Saber Arthur Pendragon. The Sword of Promised Victory. This sword is so epic, it has it’s own theme song!


1. Dragon Slayer from Berserk


“That thing was too big to be called a sword. Too big, too thick, too heavy and too rough. It was more like a large hunk of Iron.”  That is what people say of this sword.


Dragon Slayer has killed and bathed in blood of so many demons, it has actually transcended to the celestial realm of existence. Guts’ made his sword a divine entity by massacring demons left and right! This sword embodies the word epic. That is all.
