Top 5 Favorite Swords
Video games are full of really awesome swords. I have for as long as I can remember been enamored by them. I love looking at character arts and seeing them holding a sweet sword. Since I am not a swordsman, I live vicariously through them. So, I decided to come up with this list of my top five favorite swords from video games. As always, these are my favorites, only one per franchise, and must come from games I have played.
#5) Covenant Energy Sword (Halo 2)
Isn’t this thing just awesome? I really liked that in a game full of guns that people feared the sword. I played many a match running around slicing people up with this thing. Wielding it made me feel so powerful.
#4) Arc Edge (Threads of Fate)
I’m kinda stretching on this one. I’m not entirely sure if this is a sword or not, but that’s part of why I love it so much. How can you not look at this thing and think, “I would look so cool holding that?” It has the outer blade on the side away from Rue which I imagine is the sharper part, but that darker grey metal is also a blade so you can get enemies on the back swing as well.
#3) Brotherhood Sword (Final Fantasy X)
I was about ten years old when I first saw the cover art for Final Fantasy X. You couldn’t see the blade very much, but you could tell that the blade had a water-like quality to it and I thought that was so cool. It wasn’t till a few months later that I saw the full sword in action while watching my best friend play the game. Seeing that hook at the end made this sword that much cooler in my book and it has remained one of my favorites ever since.
#2) Lumina (Brave Fencer Musashi)
I cannot fully express why this sword is so high on my list without giving some spoilers. Lets just say that this sword has a special quality that creates a huge twist in the story and complicates things… a lot. Besides that, it’s pretty cool because as you progress through the game you get five different elemental scrolls that give you different abilities.
#1) Fierce Deity Sword (The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask)
I know what you’re thinking, “You chose a sword from Zelda OTHER than the Master Sword?” Yes, yes I did. The Master Sword is cool and all, but this sword is freaking awesome. Ever since I first saw Fierce Deity in Majora’s Mask everything about him has stuck with me, especially this sword. I love the design. The double helix look is really cool and very unique. I really like the two toned color scheme as well. I have always said that if I could have one sword from a video game that this would be the sword I got. I’ve noticed recently that people are selling it online so you can bet that I’m going to get my hands on one.
