  • Girl Genius: The weapons wielded by the Storm King are a mace named "The Platonic Solid" and a sword called "Archimedes' Lever". But the Jägers call them Smasher and Slasher. This may be a reference to the swords retrieved by Thorin and Gandalf in The Hobbit. They're properly named Orcrist (Goblin-Cleaver) and Glamdring (Foe-Hammer), but the Goblins call them Biter and Beater.
