    Superevil got most of the ones I got, but I figured the bomb was from Spy vs. Spy, lol. Also, isn’t that He-Man’s sword on the left next to the Thundercats one?

    Looks like Superevil got a lot of these, but didn’t mention Squall’s Gunblade from Final Fantasy 8 (I think it was 8). Green Lanterns Ring, I think one of the daggers is from Price of Persia, and I also think you missed Kratos’ Chains but I don’t remember their name if they even have one. Wish the website gave a list of the weapon names though!

    NOISY CRICKET, thats what it was. its been eating me up all day. Wouldnt you guys say that the sword below ghostbusters energy pack is the sword from samurai jack?

  6. Lisa Wang

    Yes, the Gunblade is from 8. Then Cloud’s Buster Sword from Final Fantasy VII. That sword with blue decoration looks like something from Tales of Destiny though I’m unsure it’s famous enough to make it here.
    Chris, I think the tiny tiny prints below the weapons are the names, though it’s far too small for my eyes… Maybe you can get the full sized pic in the linked page.

    Some not already mentioned:

    The One Ring (Lord of the Rings)
    Infinity Gauntlet (Marvel Comics)
    Excalibur (possibly? not 100% certain about this one)
    Soul Edge (sword from Soul Calibur)

    and also here are some names of those already mentioned:
    Sword of Omen (Thundercats)
    Master Sword (Zelda)
    Dagger of Time (Prince of Persia)
