Every great fantasy story revolves around a hero or villain who wields a marvelous weapon of legend. Some weapons are more legendary than others of course, and it only makes sense that we’d make a list of the most awesome ones.
Just in case you need some inspiration for your next Dungeons & Dragons session.
He who holds this hammer, should he be worthy, shall have the power of Thor. That’s pretty much what that hammer does.
The One Ring
One ring to rule them all and turn its wearer downright insane. The entirety of Middle-Earth fought over this ring, so that should be plenty of proof when it comes to its power.
The Master Sword
If you’ve ever played a Zelda game, you know why this weapon is legendary. Not only can it easily turn Ganon into stone, it’s also embodied by a goddess.
He who holds this sword, should he be worthy, shall be the king of England. Wait, this sounds like something we’ve heard before. Moving on.
The Deathly Hallows
The invisibility cloak, resurrection stone and elder wand. Whoever wielded these was one of the strongest in the Harry Potter universe, but sadly Harry had to do the right thing and snapped the elder wand in half.
The House Stark sword might not look like much, but it’s one of the few Valyrian steel weapons in the GoT universe. And since we all know what Valyrian steel can do to White Walkers and how easily Ice cleaves off heads, it’s a wonderfully powerful weapon to have.
Dagger of Time
I mean, it controls time. What more do I need to say? What other powers could you need? Combine this with the Prince of Persia’s parkour skills and you can pretty much save every kingdom you want to.
Many weapons have shown up in many movies and cartoons based on this weapon, and they all pretty much boil down to the same thing: the trident gives its wielder control over the oceans and give him or her some extra supernatural abilities.
