While I was doing my Top 10 Pop Culture Ninja Post I thought I’d do a top swords post … I’m not including Excalibur and the like, just really the Cartoon and Video Game pop culture ones … criteria is power and relevance, it’s a delicate balance because some of the lower rank swords may be more powerful or bigger BUT the cultural relevance may not be as strong …. so with all that nerd gunk out of the way …
The Top 10 Pop Culture Swords
10. Snake Sword
The Sword used by Snake eyes, I’m not entirely sure it should be on this list BUT it’s kinda iconic and the Snake eyes Fanboys might balk without it’s inclusion … it looks cool
9. Dragon Sword
Wielded by Ryu Hayabusa, carved from the fang of an acient dragon, passed down to Ryu from he’s father … as long as the sword is on earth it can only be weilded by a descendant of the Dragon Lineage bloodline
When the Eye of the Dragon is fitted inside it (True Dragon Sword) it’s hard to beat … a weak soul holds it and it’s a wrap.
8. Master Sword
Also known as the Blade of Evil’s Bane and the Sword of Time Used by Link in just about every Legend of Zelda game … supposedly the only sword capable of defeating the Ganondorf and his demonic alternate form, Ganon
7. Savage Sword
I had to include one of the Power Ranger Swords in here (There’s tons of them) THIS one is more powerful than all the Quasar Sabers combined … psycho Pink ranger found it and pulled it out of a stone
… it self upgrades and nearly destroyed the earth so … yeah, let’s roll with this one
6. Blazing Sword
I’ll be honest, I never cared for Voltron’s Blazing Sword … always seemed to be a cop out; who knows what it really does, basically the team loses somehow, they form Voltron … still losing decides THEN to form the Blazing sword … swipe swipe they win … feh.
BUT since it’s iconic and it might have some incredible power it ranks this high
5. Sword of Protection
She-Ra “Princess of Power” Sword. It Rivals He-Mans sword, but seeming has a weakness when the stone is damaged, it’s this high on the list because it’s almost as powerful as He-Man’s Power Sword AND can shoot beams from the stone, and morphs into whatever She-Ra needs it to be at the time.
