Living Weapons are a concept in Skullgirls. They are self-aware legendary weapons forged by master weaponsmiths. Like Parasites, they come from the mysterious element Theonite. They can only be wielded by certain gifted individuals.
List of Living WeaponsEdit
- Vice-Versa: A highly expressive hat equipped with two massive arms. It is capable of incredible feats of strength, such as carrying elephants and crushing rocks into diamonds. Cerebella is the only known person who can wield it and she has formed a mental bond with Vice-Versa.
- Krieg: An umbrella-shaped Living Weapon passed down throughout the Renoir family, currently wielded by Parasoul. Using its many eyes, it can shed Napalm Tears that can float in the air and can be detonated.
- Hungern: Another umbrella-shaped Living Weapon with an insatiable appetite, currently wielded by Umbrella. Its power increases the longer it is not used to attack. Hungern takes on the shapes of various nightmarish mouths as it tries to consume the enemy, ranging from horse heads to anemones.
- Todd: A boney umbrella-shaped Living Weapon owned by King Franz Renoir as seen in concept sketches.
- Pazuzu Whip: A yellow snake themed whip wielded by Mrs. Victoria's crime fighting alter-ego Deep Violet. It can grow multiple heads and change rigidity when needed.
- The names of the Renoir's Living Weapons are the German names for the Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Krieg meaning War, Hungern meaning Famine (lit. "hunger"), and Todd meaning Death. Following this, it can be assumed that there is a fourth weapon named for Pestilence.
- Parasites, like Living Weapons, manifest their powers differently from host to host. They also change size depending on the wielder.
- Living Weapons never deteriorate or age.
