Anthrax cow head? no, just me then.

Buster blade was cool but if anything the gunblade and keyblade ff 8 and kingdom hearts respectivly are better weapons square have made which define a game but that is just personal opinion.

gunblade was a stupid idea, and horribly designed that made it unrealistic.

FFVIII is a world filled with sorceresses, dragons and teenagers who attend military schools to learn magic. And out of all that, you're calling the gun barrel attached to a blade 'unrealistic'?

Sure, it was a silly design. But it's no sillier than a sword that's the size of a full-grown man, or using a blitzball as a weapon, or a robotic cat who rides a stuffed moogle and uses a megaphone as a weapon, or using your pet dog as a missile that can be launched from an arm-boomerang, etc.

really, it is pretty easy to design a blade with a gun firing barrel into it.

... the point of a gunblade was never to shoot anything. There's no barrel. The "gun" portion of the weapon was designed to do extra damage by delivering an extra amount of damage when the trigger was pulled.

Stick a giant blade into something, then cause that blade to vibrate due to an explosion while it's inside the target. The idea is a different approach on the concept behind a serrated edge, in that it's designed to increase the damage a single wound- a single attack- causes.

The gunblade is one of my favorite weapons.

That's what made it all that better, surely?

Except they don't have a handle at 90 degrees to the sword. The handling of it is impossible.

I know fantasy has suspension of belief. The gunblade is undoubtedly the most idiotically designed weapon in FF.

That is a top 5 for a generation of gamers born in this millennium.

The only ones that seemed really memorable was the ? Box & the First Aid Spray.

I would've thought of other items first, maybe like;
Super Mario coin
The Zelda Tri-Force
Keyblade (despite its unrealisticness, it's hardly forgettable)
Ink Ribbon
Big Guns (representing any 1st person shooter)
Ms. Pac-Man fruit (cherry, for instance)

Stuff like that
Maybe even the Donkey Kong barrel
