Final Fantasy VIII also has a couple of interesting weapons. In addition to the Gunblade, there is the chain whip used by Quistis Treppe. It has a handle, a sharp blade at the end and it is composed by chains, as the name states. It looks like it would be very fun to use, and painful too! It is a unique weapon in the franchise and not as extravagant as others, which is not bad at all.
As with many other kinds of weapons, whips can be found in many games. However, this type of design really looks like it could be a practical tool. Maybe characters in other titles could use the whip outside of battle as well, introducing new and fun mechanics.
