* '''[[CombatHandFan Fans]]''': A favorite of graceful warriors such as [[{{Ambadassador}} courtiers]] and [[LadyOfWar onna-bugeisha]] in Japanese settings. Usually bladed or iron banded.
** '''[[PaperFanOfDoom Paper Fans]]''': Rarely a character's WeaponOfChoice, as they're principally used in slapstick, not combat. When they are, they're frequently used by TheIdiotFromOsaka, or for UnprovokedPervertPayback. However, [[NerfArm they may be used to fight, anyways.]]

** Homura's magically granted "weapon" is non combative, a small buckler shield that grants her unlimited storage space and controls her special ability. Therefore, she must rely on non-magical weapons from outside sources, like homemade pipe bombs, pistols and shotguns [[spoiler:stolen from the {{Yakuza}}]], up to heavy machine guns and rocket launchers [[spoiler: and ''actual rocket artillery'' stolen from [[KaijuDefenseForce the JSDF]]]]. It works quite well as a reflection of her very stoic, no-frills, no-nonsense attitude as well as her singular drive to accomplish her goal [[spoiler: of defeating Walpurgistnacht and stopping Madoka from contracting and becoming a world-destroying Witch]] [[IDidWhatIHadToDo by any means necessary]].

** '''[[Telescoping Staff]]''', the version exclusive to melee combat. This kind of staff allows for easy storage due to its ability to be made compact, better for catching opponents off guard with a weapon of that size.
