Sometimes fanart can be truly weird.

I don't get it... why does every action movie with swords use katanas or daikatanas? Are they really that cool? Why not use a 13th century European sword? Long, maybe a bit heavy (guys, I've got news for you: today you still gotta have some muscle to be a soldier/fighter), but perfectly balanced and made of good materials. The combination of weight and lenght makes for a truly devastating weapon: even if it doesn't cut through armor it will simply break bones beneath it. Or a 16th century sword or (cutting) rapier. Not only made of superb materials (and to think Gerlach today makes knives and forks >_<) but also long, light and very fast. Also the Hungarian or Polish sabre would do. Very fast weapon with a "feather" at the end which gives the blade some momentum while cutting.

#2, What about Scimitars? They're small, deadly, and badass...

"Hungarian" sabre, later became the "national" Polish weapon:

Light, fast, deadly.
Scimitars? Well... I always thought they are a bit tip-heavy. Maybe they aren't...
This is what I got to use for some time:

Viking sword, 9th century. Cool, if a bit on the heavy side. Of course, sword fighting requires lots of training, so my weapon of choice was this:

One-handed Viking axe, again 9th century. The shaft was thinner and longer. This thing was so fast it was scary.

-sword or axe (second or third lane used long two-handed "Danish" axes)

-round or kite shield (in the first line)

Kill Bill seems to be popular with more than one fanartist...
http://photo.ricecop.com/pics/killbowser.jpg I actually like this one more than the Splat Fatcat one.
