Impractical, but Awesome Weapons Thread-Post any impractical weapon, no matter how silly or ridiculous it is. Starting with a classic:

Red Queen: Used by Nero of DMC4. it has been specially customized with a motorcycle-like gear shift which, when pulled, sprays a flammable propellant across the blade and opponent, greatly increasing the power of its blows.

That's not so ludicrous.

Next we have the Urumi, or Indian Whipsword.

The urumi (curling blade) is a long sword made of flexible steel, sharp enough to cut into flesh, but flexible enough to be rolled into a tight coil. Originating in South India with name of Surul Pattai (Tamil: சுருள் பட்டாக்கத்தி), it was most popular in the North Malabar Coast of Kerala and is often mentioned in the ballads of the region.

From Metal Gear Rising we have sam's katana sheath. What makes this weapon cuhrazy is the fact that it is used by first sheathing the katana, then pulling the trigger to launch it back out, essentially creating a gun-powered quickdraw.

A horrible but hilarious idea. If the build quality was really high it could work. But really such a long handle on a sword? Well it's debatable. Ok there is the point that you simply do away with the weak of the blade by just retaining the strong main cutting area.
But unless the build quality was good that thing would fall apart.

The Lancer is more practical than people say.
The only thing I would do is move the bayonet further down the barrel but you'd have to extend the body or add a frame for it.
Still it's clearly a weapon that would excel in brutal close quarters combat.

Very good things. Him being a Quincy isn't about "aw look at him he's the MC so he has to have every power". It's about Aizen making a Hollow out of a shinigami that then hollowfied a Quincy (Ichigo's mother) that then gave birth to a being with shinigami, Hollow, Quincy and Fullbringer potential - all so that he could make a being to be his key to the gates of heaven so that he could take it over and become god.

By virtue of being any of those things, he isn't human, so you can scratch that off the list.
And is it ever confirmed that he actually retained his Fullbringer powers at all once he regained his Shinigami powers? I figured it was just a temporary setup to allow him to fight without being a Shinigami.

Wrong. Quincies and Fullbringers are humans with spiritual powers. If he's either of those, he's part human.
>And is it ever confirmed that he actually retained his Fullbringer powers at all once he regained his Shinigami powers?
Well, his Shinigami outfit retain cosmetic residue of his Fullbring outfit (x-shaped bands on his person), but that's about it.
Then again, those bands are over his solar plexus, on each wrist and on each ankle: the exact locations of the Hollow hole that formed and the tufts of fur that sprouted when he went full-on Hollow.
>I figured it was just a temporary setup to allow him to fight without being a Shinigami.
Not exactly. It was all just a ruse to augment Xcution's powers and get some petty revenge on Soul Society.
>Then there's the fact that Shinigami/Hollow hybrids aren't even all that rare in the setting, so the only part that stands out is the Quincy part.
Again, not exactly. Arrancars (Hollow with a zanpakuto) can occur naturally so there's a ton of weaker ones, but Visoreds (shinigami with a mask) are all artificial.

No, if he's either of those, he's either part Quincy or part Fullbringer, because if you're a Quincy or a Fullbringer, you're not a normal human.

As for the wardrobe change, there's also the fact that his new powers are those given to him by the various Shinigami, rather than being entirely his original powers, so who knows how that's affected his reiatsu (and by extension, the appearance of his Zanpakuto/Bankai).

>Again, not exactly. Arrancars (Hollow with a zanpakuto) can occur naturally so there's a ton of weaker ones, but Visoreds (shinigami with a mask) are all artificial.
Not all naturally occuring Arrancar are weak; King Barragan was an Arrancar before Aizen showed up and he was still the third most powerful, even after Aizen made his own beefed up Arrancar.
Not sure how Visoreds being artificial makes Ichigo any more special, either, given that it's hardly a unique power-up.
