Imaginary or magical weapons used in famous works of fantasy or fiction


Jun 5, 2023
Imagination and design of weapons used in fantasy or science fiction works is one of my favorites in the field of fantasy and fiction literature.
In this topic, we share the ideas of fantasy or magical or imaginary weapons that are mentioned in famous works.

Talking weapon​

In the Nightside book series, one of the deadliest magical weapons is the talking weapon. This weapon destroys the target by saying its name in reverse. An angel or a demon is defenseless against this weapon.
One of the interesting ideas I found about the talking weapon is this picture.
