1. ZABUZA’S SWORD “KUBIKIRIBOCHO”
Zabuza was one of Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura’s first formidable opponents. He wielded, as seen in the picture above, a very large broadsword that is shaped like a massive butcher’s knife. The name of his sword is “Kubikibocho” which means “Decapitating Carving Knife.” This sword follows the traditions of the Seven Ninja Swordsman of the Mist in which it is passed down from generation to generation, being wielded only by members of their clan.
2. HIDAN’S TRIPLE-BLADED SCYTHE
This ominous scythe is Hidan’s primary weapons. It can be swung through the air using the attached cable on its end. Despite its cumbersome size, Hidan is able to move this weapon fast enough to block incoming kunai and throwing stars. And while this triple-bladed scythe looks incredibly lethal, it is mostly utilized to wound enemies and make them bleed. The blood is then collected and used in a curse ritual. Hidan is a member of the Akatsuki.
3. CHOJURO’S SWORD “HIRAMEKAREI”
Another weapon from the “Seven Swordsmen of the Mist” is “Hiramekarei,” which is Chojuro’s primary weapon. Hiramekarei has the rather unique ability of transforming into different weapons such as a long-sword or hammer. To do this, the wielder must command the weapon to “release” its stored chakra. As the two holes at the tip of the blade emit its chakra it can then be transformed into different shapes, creating a different weapon suitable for various situations.
4. OROCHIMARU’S “SWORD OF KUSANAGI”
One of the coolest weapons in the Naruto series is the “Sword of Kusanagi.” A sword originally possessed by Orochimaru. This sword is stored in his stomach. When needed, Orochimaru open’s his mouth widely, revealing a snake which excretes the sword from its mouth. The Kusanagi sword can be controlled telekinetically, it cuts through almost anything and it has the ability to extend or shrink in length.
5. KANKURO’S PUPPETS
Puppets are creations used as weapons by master puppeteer’s in the Naruto universe. They often resemble humans but depending on the creator, they can look different. The most notable feature is that every part of these puppets are used for attacks or defense. This gives the puppeteer a variety of uses during unpredictable battles.
These incredible weapons are controlled by chakra strings, not your standard puppet strings. Sasori, another puppet wielding ninja, was known for adding armor to his puppets to decrease the week spots which are typically in their joints.
6. TAYUYA’S DEMONIC FLUTE
Tayuya’s flute is a weapon used to cast a powerful genjutsu which controls her Doki or “Angy Demons”. The flute is strong enough to withstand attacks from flying kunai. However, it is primarily used for controlling her three demons. Tayuya has the ability to change the melody of her flute to confuse her opponents, should they recognize a previous melody. It is said that no one has heard the sound of her flute and lived to tell about it.
7. GAARA’S SAND
One of this Jinchuriki’s most notable visual features is the large gourd strapped to his back. In the groud is chakra-infused sand which Gaara uses as a defense and weapon. It shields him from most melee attacks, shuriken and other weapons like kunai. Gaara’s uncle claimed the sand would always protect him because it contained the will of his mother. After this realization, most of Gaara’s techniques began to reflect the appearance of his mother.
8. KOKINJO ROPE
The Kokinjo is one the most valued weapons of the Sage of Six Paths. It is extremely powerful and pairs nicely with another weapon, a sword, called “Shichiseiken.” The Kokinjo, which literally means “Golden Canopy Rope”, is a bright golden rope which, as seen in the picture above, wraps around the arm of its wielder. The one drawback for this weapon is the amount of chakra it consumes when used. The ninja using this weapon must contain a large amount of chakra.
The golden canopy rope can transform its overall length to extend its effective range. The most notable feature of this weapon is its ability to draw out the “word soul” of the wielder’s opponent. Once the word soul is drawn out, it can then be severed by the Shichiseiken sword.
9. KIMIMARO’S SPINAL VINE WHIP
This weapon is literally the spine from Kimimaro. When he obtains his second level form, Kimimaro pulls out his spinal column to create the “Spinal Vine Whip.” This weapon is long, heavily spiked and flexible enough to use as a whip. The vertebrae have been modified to be extremely sharp and very durable. Also, Kimimaro regrows a new spine to replace his old spine. Once entangled by Kimimaro’s spinal vine whip, he would follow up with the “Dance of Clematis: Flower”, the second half of his fourth dance.
10. KISAME’S SWORD “SAMEHADA”
This ominous sentient sword is wielded by Kisame, one of the more powerful members of the Akatsuki. It is said that Kisami is capable of using all of the seven blades of the mist. The name of this weapon is “Samehada” which means “Shark Skin.” This incredible sword is covered in spikes and has a large mouth with sharp teeth on the tip. The original wielder of this weapon was Fuguki, who was later killed by Kisame. This is how the Shark Skin Greatsword came in to Kisame’s possession.
