WEEBS STRAIGHT SWORDS ARE STRONGER
I am so glad you put Rurouni Kenshin when referencing the Katana! 😀
Love the katana
Greatsword. Katar. Shakram… metal whip! Awesome.
Yes The Katana deserved it Number one spot like I said Japanese do it better
The rock. Committed the first and most famous murder
HERO (2002) is one of the greatest movies ever made.
So wrong!!! The viking sword is ty he best!!! The ulfberg!
What about the tube that people blow into and little arrows with poison come out ? What's it called
"Futou" means axe, hooks are "gou", learn your chinese.
Fire Arrows? Get me Lindybeige!
you missed Urumi a flexible sword
"Why Vibranium isn't exist in this Video?"-Wakandans
I freakn dig the morning star! 🙂
How about a fist full of sand to the eyes? That's a wepon as old as time
Someone likes Berserk
What about claws/cestus??
BOATS (WITH GUNS) (GUNBOATS)
One devastating yet understated weapon: the Turk Kilij sword. The weighted crescent shaped blade allow you to maximize the cutting power of both your arms and gravity. Not as accurate or precise as a Katana but it’s definitely more powerful, it’ll cut bones in half with relatively little effort and even if you’re wearing armor, it’s gonna leave one hell of a bruise or break some ribs
Seriously tho, Why are most of the clips in this anime?
I'm genuinely curious because it doesn't fit at all. Is it a violence issue or something?
Where is Urumi??????
Isn't that a trebuchet rather than a mangonel?
Spear/pole arms > swords
You people are so ignorant. You'll have taken weapons which have appeard in main stream media only and haven't even researched. Bhramastra should have been #1 as per research which was in ancient hindu text of mahabharata the greatest war in history of mankind and atom bomb was inspired from Bhramastra as robert oppenheimer the creator of atom bomb stated a line from vedas , a quote by lord vishnu.
You fucking weebs, the longswords will always be superior to those get Japanese rods you weabu kids call "swords". When an angry mob of holy warriors barge through wour doors and purge you with fire, know it was your own doing.
Not a single mention of the Urumi? You know that Indian sword which has about two dozen blades attached to it with a variation which has 32 and is ment to be dual wielded meaning you will have 64 blades and you actually are able to right with. Like wtf.
You guys love berserk! don't you guys.😊😊
Katana is fucking shit. Most overrated weapon of all time.
Love how they talk about flail when it was never combat weapon really… But ok
Katana is cooler than hook sword and semi/full auto crossbow?NOWAY!!
Husité had much more interesting weapons so you just could look that far. Jan Žižka used mace by the way.
6:00 which anime is that ?
Flail should of been higher on the list, just my opinion though
Vlad the Impaler's sword could've easily made this list. Check it out on The deadliest warrior. It's crazy deadly.
Quarterstaff/Spear > everything else, ever.
Who knew berserk anime contains some of the best ancient weapons in history…
3:32 what movie/series is that from?
I'm calling b***** on this, the katar wasn't even on the list
The katana isint even a battle field weapon
1. Ulfberht swords
Fire arrows was barely used because the air would put the fire out once it was lunched. The ninja also barely used swords because they were poor farmers away from civilization. The weapon used by ninja was the kama or the kusarigama. The katana is very overrated theres many types of western swords that would give a katan a run for its money. Please WatchMojo please do more research for these videos and no Wikipedia doesn't count as research.
Anyone have seen some of these in shadow fight 2 game??
Ulfberht better be no1. Very ancient and hard to craft.
In my opinion, the phalanx spear, or the pike.
You forgot Kris, a weapon from ancient Indonesia that is powerful, symbolic and mythical.
What about the Khopesh?
A genuine katana, and when I say genuine I don't mean the shopping mall katana, is a thing of beauty. Each one is a work of art but, given the choice, I'd rather be swinging a European broadsword if my life depended on it than a katana.
p.s. The tassle on the front of a Chinese spear was to help prevent blood running down the shaft and making it slippery. That's what I've been led to believe anyway, if I'm wrong let me know.
What about the kusarisama? A japanese weapon that consisted of a weighted chain and sickle. Its way cooler than a katana
