** ''Videogame/TalesOfVesperia'': Shotgun. Scythe.

*** Yeager weirlds a ''shotgun scythe.''
*** Raven's weapon of choice is slightly less "cool", but it's a bow that can fold up into a short sword for close combat.

* On ''Series/GameOfThrones'', the Dothraki use wicked-looking sickle-swords. While [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khopesh similar weapons existed]] in the Bronze Age Near East, they were used by footsoldiers to get around an enemy's shield. They're not really appropriate for a culture whose warriors are all light cavalry, but they certainly look more exotic than a sabre or scimitar.

The sword's curved blade with sharpened outer edge is similar to other cavalry swords, though the sword itself looks more literally like a sickle, with a straight shaft that suddenly bends into a moon crescent blade part way up, making it look similar to a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khopesh similar weapons existed]] in the Bronze Age Near East, they were used by footsoldiers to get around an enemy's shield.

** Also, the Death Star. Okay [[MoralEventHorizon mass murder is not cool]], but you know what I mean.

* The Apache Revolver (named for a Parisian street gang, not the Native American tribe) deserves honorable mention. It's basically a pistol with a set of brass knuckles in place of a normal grip, sometimes with a knife blade attached as well. Unfortunately, the emphasis is on "impossibly" here; the examples we have mostly used infamously inaccurate pepperbox gun components, but at least they were deadly in a close-up altercation.

** On that note, the [[HighPressureBlood Cerebral Bore]], plus nearly half of the VideoGame/{{Turok}} series' other weapons. Remember the ''minimum'' of three barrels per rocket launcher? The landmines specifically designed to amputate at the shin? The electrified shotgun that can put the same bullets through a single target six times over? The rocket-propelled sledgehammer? The precision-guided boomerang ''chainsaw''? That gun that desiccates enemies and leaves behind jerky? The sticky, radioactive flares that slowly microwave people?

* The [[https://youtu.be/A7t67SAjqUs?t=1h15m11s Russian Overkill]] mod for ''VideoGame/{{Doom}} II'' has giving you these as it's modus operandi. Also counts as AwesomeYetImpractical, because saying some of these are portable nuke launchers, and that you can easily kill youself with them without God Mode on, is, in no way, hyperbole.

* The [[EmpathicWeapon Devices]] of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''. Some of them speak in GratuitousEnglish. Some of them speak in GratuitousGerman. Most of them can [[SwissArmyWeapon switch from one kickass form to another]]. Most of them are {{Determinator}}s in their own right, demanding {{Deadly Upgrade}}s if they lose and even continuing to fight ''even after their owner loses consciousness''. All of them are human-sized versions of HumongousMecha weaponry that can, and do, take out HumongousMecha.

** One of the most notable subversions is from "Operation: T.R.I.C.Y.C.L.E.": the "K-Strike", a giant ketchup bottle that fires [[WaveMotionGun a massive beam of ketchup]] from their moon base down to Earth. Unfortunately it had no effect on the giant, evil tricycle that they were trying to destroy- one KND pilot points this out:
--->'''KND Pilot:''' The ketchup had no effect! And uh... d'you mind telling me who thought ''ketchup'' would do anything anyway?
