5. Alastor, Devil May Cry

Wielded By: Dante
Dante and his wide assortment of demon slaying weapons were first introduced in DMC, one of the most badass and inventive action/adventure games ever. One of the first pieces of hardware we came to love in the series was the shocking (pun intended) lightning-infused sword, Alastor. Ah, the good times we had slashing possessed marionettes into midair and keeping them airborne with our pistols! Only a half-demon/half-human like Dante could stay alive after Alastor shoved itself into his chest. The way he escaped from it, though? *shudders*
