10 Best Video Game Swords

Why are swords are so popular? It could be that they’re functional, or customizable, or that they just look freaking cool. To help answer this eternal question we’ve hit the books to examine the best that video game weaponry has to offer, and came up with a list of the 10 Best Video Game Swords.


The Atma/Ultima Weapon- Final Fantasy series

While most armaments are content to remain static, the Atma Weapon thoughtfully grows (and wanes) in strength depending on the power of its user.



Crissaegrim- Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

This game-breaking blade lets Alucard strike like The Flash- and we’re talking Barry Allen Flash, like, so fast you’re risking the disruption of the space-time continuum.


Akujiki- Shinobi (Playstation 2)

Hotsuma’s Akujiki is an equal opportunity soul-stealing sword, draining the life of its foes and its wielder alike.


Ragnarok- Final Fantasy series

There are many different backstories behind the cursed blade Ragnarok; many of them involve it being forged in the end of the world. Which world? Only Ragnarok knows, and it’s not saying.


Soul Calibur- Soul Calibur series

A tale of souls and swords eternally retold wouldn’t ever be told without this luscious crystal blade with a penchant for shifting forms into whatever its wielder needs it to be.


Soul Edge- Soul Calibur series

Like Batman and The Joker, or fire and ice, or peanut butter and jelly, Soul Calibur and Soul Edge are eternal rivals destined to forever clash on the battlefield.


Rebellion- Devil May Cry series

Like its owner Dante, Rebellion is a playful sword, adept at showing off and strutting its stuff.


Frostmourne- Warcraft III / World of Warcraft

Okay, sure, Frostmourne is insanely powerful. It’ll also cost you your soul and damn you into being the vessel for the Lich King, so you might want to put a little thought into things before picking it up.


Buster Sword- Final Fantasy VII

Cloud Strife’s signature sword may be impossibly large, but it looks so iconic and so friggin’ cool that you’re unlikely to wonder if he’s using it as overcompensation.


The Master Sword- The Legend of Zelda series

Time and time again we see Link go questing after this blade, and that’s because it can vanquish evil, deflect dark magic, and make all the Hylian girls swoon.
