The lights are on
Square Enix's flagship series has been so influential to the genre that it's almost synonymous with RPG. Use this space to share your favorite Final Fantasy moments or gossip about the happenings in Vana'diel. What's your favorite Final Fantasy?
What's your favorite weapon that was used in the Final Fantasy series, regardless of whether it was used by the good guys or bad guys or used only once?
I have to go with the gunblade, it might not do the damage of the massive swords in the form of Cloud and Auron, but it offers the greatest functionality. Also, when I think of the gunblade, I think of that scene in Indiana Jones when Indiana thinks he's being slick by shooting the swordsman and I imagine the swordsman had a gunblade and just ends the series right there.
My personal favorite is Sephiroth's Masamune. I always marveled at how insanely long that sword was when I was younger, and when he took out that dragon in one hit in Cloud's flashback, it was even more awesome. Even to this day, it is still my favorite weapon. In fact, someone gave me a replica of it for Christmas one year and it is still on display in my room.
The whole reason I included bad guys in the question was so that people could include Sephiroth's sword, looks like I was right.
Omega Weapon... freaking 1 mill hit point ***
The Masamune, both Sephiroth's and the weapon from the FF 1 remake.
Also, the gunblade is awesome.
I think it's Apocalypse that I like, since it had 3x materia growth rate and was an extremely useful weapon in 7 when players were grinding for AP.

Gungnier but you'd have to had played FFXI to get its relivance, lol.
Kefka's Light of Judgement.
If you bred HK-47, Shale, Chai Ka and Wrex, the gaming world would explode from sheer badassery.
I also have to admit that I loved the Ragnarok in VI, since it randomly casted Flare and did critical hits using your MP. Others liked the Illumina, but I preferred a non-elemental spell.
I'll have to go with Atma Weapon in FF6. You could deal tons of damage with it if your character was geared right and with semi full health.
This doesn't belong in a blog..... it belongs...... ON FRONT PAGE!!! It all makes sense now.
I liked World Champion from FFX. Wakka was horrible but the ball was pretty cool.
Caius' sword is pretty awesome, too.

Squalls gunblade is my favorite. Its trigger for higher damage and limits are all great. Plus it just looks good
The Lionheart was obviously my favorite version of Squall's Gunblade; nothing topped him using it for the ultimate limit break either. I felt they were trying a bit too hard to one-up Cloud's Omnislash though. I liked Excalibur II in final fantasy IX, but hated that you had to mow through the game in order to obtain it.
