To be clear, Ai-chan is not asking for a spear, a hammer or a gun. What Ai-chan is asking is, how would you improve swords so that it becomes more badass than a typical arming sword or long sword? Something like a swordchuck, where you attach two swords together via a chain, like this. Or do you have some awesome ideas to turn other weapons into becoming more badass? Logic doesn't come into the equation. Badassery is all that matters. BTW, gunchucks is out of date, so please no suggesting that. And grenade launchers while awesome, is just a gun that shoots grenades, so it's not really all that badass.
