No joke. That ridiculous buster sword Cloud weilds. There's not a Claymore around IRL that's anywhere near as big as that and those two-handed swords are hard enough to handle as is. Auron's is another example. That's like three Claymores put together. Truly fantasy.

I happen to love the swords. But yes, like you stated earlier, it's fantasy, so I really couldn't care less about how realistic it is. I mean, if I did, I'd be on a rampage all the time, considering nearly everything in Final Fantasy is fake, but that's what I love about it. Anyway, I do agree that the Buster Sword might be pushing it. But Auron's sword, I like.

Haha, beats me. Yes, Squall does have the oddest looking blade out of all the swords I've seen from Final Fantasy. Actually, the only one that rivals it, to me anyway, is the Apocalypse from FF VII. It was neat looking, but it's just plain odd.

yes yes teh swords are massive, and it would be damn hard to use a full sized buster sword! i have a replica, its not full sized but its pretty big and it weighs about 8 pounds, and made of  440 steel, and that might not sound like a lot, but it is for a sword. omnislash would make your arms fall off...

I also do like swords, I have a few, but you are right. I always thought and said that sephiroths real long masamune, would break instantly at that length and thickness. I also can wonder how Cloud could swing that huge hunk of iron, like its nothing, if you watch his stance in the FF7 battle hes holding it  firm and still with both his arms out stretched, and with that little thin handle. He would be teetering back and forth to balance it. It is fantasy though and just entertainment.

Despite the swords being big and odd, I love them none the less, but as Loner and Axel stated, it is Fantasy.

I must say though, I loved Squall's gunblade, because it was something never though of before, but it would have been nice to see it being able to actually shoot >_> Did you guys seriously not notice the Barell on the gun part of the Gunblade? It was very easy to spot

I think that some sort of pattern is emerging. Yes, the swords would be too ridiculously inappropriate for use in real life, but no-one cares.

Their swords are big, you can ride on yellow birds called Chocobos across the world, you can carry hundreds of items at one time, the character's hair defies the laws of gravity. The reason for all this is because it's Final Fantasy and the Final Fantasy we know and love. If we wanted everything to be realistic as things are in our world today their would hardly be anything left in the games. It's really as simple as that.

Yup, doesn't the name of the game kinda point out that it's only fantasy....

They combine into 1 sword.. if you saw the movie when Cloud performs his final move his sword seperates and he uses each one on Sephiroth. You can also see his sheath as he walks into the room (just before Reno lunges at him) which could probably hold up to three swords, seperately, in it.

Disgaeamad

I think that it did sort of shoot because when you were fighting, hitting the R1 button right when Squall was going to hit was refered to as the Trigger Button...but I could be wrong...:(

While the concept of people wielding obscenely large weapons and easily for that matter is just plain wierd, the game is called Final Fantasy. So who cares?

Anyway, it's a game, things aren't supposed to be realistic. A game that was entirely realistic would be either incredibly boring, or only popular in Japan. (I keed, I keed. But not really.)

That is what I love about Final Fantasy, everything is so original, and I fell in love with Cloud's buster sword ever since FFVII, it's just awesome watching them fight, and I think it is part of the legacy of FF

Actually the big swords are originate from the famous Japanese Anime call Berserk.  If you say Cloud's sword is big, lets have a look in Berserk's sword.

Big swords are FF's signature. All of you are complaining about the size being stupid because it wouldn't work in real life, but none of you mentioned magic :) (or for as much off the topic i read anyway)

According to the creators it wasn't supposed to shoot, but actually send a jolt through the blade to add more power (???) I know, it doesn't make any sense to me either, they also went on to say "It's extremely hard to master" hahaha, really? You think? Shooting a gun whilst laying a sword into a large beast to make it vibrate and hurt the enemy more sounds like childsplay to me.

Big swords Big hair sometimes Big Heads and often big statements,

this stuff is all Larger than life for good reason! it just enhances the magic of the game something that makes FF's so special is there Surrealism, what better way to inforce a chimerical view than to put abstract unnatural things in your game.

If I had a sword it'de be massive like 8 feet long and 3 feet thick. I would put it on my back and walk around as everyone stares in awe of my sword that slays oceanliners. Of course if I had to fight someone I would just punch them and then say they aren't worthy of my uber sword. No one needs to know I can't even wield it without falling over...

meh. i love the size. makes the battles in Advent Children seem so much cooler.

and check the stuff out with Cloud's buster sword at the very beginning and the end. coolest idea.....EVER.

when u see the movie, ull know what i mean.
