What's the best sword?

When I was young I was obsessed with Tidus's wet Brotherhood sword from Final Fantasy X for some reason. I think it was just the incredible PS2 graphics at the time.




Now I just love to see a classic-ass stubby short sword like the Hero's Sword from Wind Waker:




Honourable mention to the Razor Sword from Majora's Mask - the coolest sword featured on all the key art that nobody ever used:

I do really like the look of that Razor Sword!

Hard to say what's BEST, but I want to give a special shoutout to the Zweihander from Dark Souls. I know it's a meme, but finally getting enough strength to properly use that thing was a revelation. Gaining the ability to straight-up pancake enemies totally changed how I thought about that game's combat. And I've pretty much gravitated towards the Big swords ever sense.

Soul Edge is quite the piece of work, and Ivy's snake sword was also just plain neat

My beautiful, my beloved Moonlight Great sword, in all its forms, in all its glory.

I always loved the Z-Saber, if only for how much smear they animate it with.

It's an easy choice but I can't help it, it's so iconic

Thinkin' about Travis Touchdown's Beam Katana.



I appreciate that they tried to create a somewhat feasible lightsaber. I didn't really appreciate the jack-off recharge motion controls on the Wii though.

Woah that Stormbringer art goes hard.

I've never heard of Elric. This definitely looks relevant to my interests.

Big fan of the hilt of that sword up top!

It is iconic for a reason, and it is truly one of my favorites...

I see a few great ones have already been mentioned. MLGS and GUTS. I like the Dragon Buster from Tales of the Abyss based on Dragon Buster. I think the Master Sword deserves a mention. Also Buster Blader's sword from Yu-Gi-Oh! The Covenant swords from Halo are a lot of fun... I'll throw the White Sword into the mix. I know it's not the strongest in Zelda 1, but it's such a difference-maker. And it feels so good to get every time you play once you've cut your teeth with the wooden sword.
