Tokiya is Recca's upperclassman and wields the madōgu Ensui ("Dark Water"), a sword that utilizes water to create it blade and is capable of creating and controlling all three states of water (liquid, solid and gas).

Ichigo's zanpakutō is named Zangetsu.Unlike most Soul Reapers, who can seal their zanpakutō after releasing it, Ichigo's zanpakutō is always in its shikai form. Its sealed form is that of an ordinary zanpakutō, but oversized as a result of Ichigo's uncontrolled spiritual pressure.
Zangetsu is portrayed as wise and calm in most matters, and fond of testing Ichigo in unusual ways, many of which have a purpose completely contrary to the stated goal. Zangetsu's special ability is the Getsuga Tenshō., a wave of spirit particles released from his blade's edge. Correspondent to the name, the wave is shaped like a crescent moon.

TOP 2 MOST POPULAR ANIME SWORD
"BUSTER SWORD"


(The Sword used by Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy)

The Buster Sword is an iconic symbol from Final Fantasy VII, that has since appeared in several other games in the series. It serves as Cloud Strife's main weapon, and was wielded before him by Zack Fair and Angeal Hewley. The Buster Sword is classified as an enormous broadsword (though it has more in common with a Zweihander). From tip to handle, it is approximately 5 feet long, with a single-edged, enormously wide blade. Its broad hilt sports a swirling motif, and there are two holes on the blade near the hilt, often mistaken for Materia "slots", but are in fact used to attach the sword to a harness on Cloud's back.

The Buster Sword is famous not only for being Cloud Strife's weapon, but its unique appearance, especially its massive size. It is possibly one of the best known swords in the Final Fantasy series, along with the Gunblade, Masamune, Excalibur, Ultima Weapon, Brotherhood, and others.

THE MOST POPULAR ANIME SWORD

"LASER SWORD"

(The Sword used by Kazuma "Alfred" kuwabara from Yu Yu Hakusho and also used as one of the primary weapons of the gigantic robot of Voltes V)

Voltes V's arsenal consists of variety of missiles, a bazooka, beams, and weapons such as Super Electromagnetic Top (Similar to the Choudenji Yo-Yo of Combattler V) and Tenkūken or laser sword in english dubbing. With Tenkūken, Voltes V started the trend in super robots genre in using sword as the finishing a.k.a. "Hissatsu" weapon, marking the enemy's final moments with his signature "V" slash.
