Blades. Majestic and precise killing machines. Gaming is just one of the mediums that they are portrayed but it just so happens they are oh so common. Whether it is a certain magical sword or a demonic blade they captivate our imaginations and make us wish we had one. What are your favorite blades in gaming? Don't play games? Any movie or comic book swords you like?

My personal favorites in this order:

#1 True Master Sword (Skyward Sword): You literally go through so much crap to get it 3 silent realms (shudders), 3 tricky dungeons, 3 brutal bosses (hero mode) and the way its presented is just glorious with Link finally becoming the hero he was meant to be with that iconic master sword tune. The blade is also gorgeous and kills enemies in the game with great ease.

#2 Ragnell (Path of Radiance, Radiant Dawn): Being able to use the same blade that killed your father to kill his murderer. Badass. Blade has a solid gold look to it and shoots shockwaves. Oh its also massive but Ike uses it with one arm. O_O

#3 Falchion (Awakening): I particularly like this version because of the distinctive tear shaped hole in the middle its exalted look also makes it a true beauty.

Any "ultimate weapon" from Final Fantasy. Like FF12's Excalibur, for example.

Check out this holy beast.

Gustave's Sword from SaGa Frontier II. It's an ordinary steel broadsword hand-forged by its owner in a world awash in magical weapons, yet it was this lack of magical properties that made it the deadliest sword in the world. The "bayonet" gunblades seen in the Wild ARMs series come in at a close second.

I'm quite fond of Agito in the Agarest series. It hits like a truck and has some pretty decent combos.

Frostmourne (Warcraft Franchise)
Ultima Weapon (final fantasy; FF6 might be favorite)

Slayer of the Lifeless (Warcraft again)
Soul Edge (Soulcalibur franchise)

Those are the ones that I seem to remember the most off the top of my head. I'm sure there are many others I am fond of though.
