Tower of God is a South Korean manhwa written and illustrated by S.I.U; that is known to have shattered many records setting up a bar so high.
Running for over 10 years, it has managed to secure a wide fanbase that is always yearning for more. With its recent return from a year-long hiatus, Tower of God is back to sweep us off our feet with its dark secrets and battle sequences defying human logic.
Tower of God is a fantasy-based manhwa that revolves around the life adventures of “Twenty-Fifth Bam.” The main hero has spent his entire life living in the cave, unaware of the outside world with his only companion/friend Racheal.
When one fine day, Racheal decides to leave and to enter the Tower, the very thought of losing her made Bam follow in her footsteps. The Tower is a massive, mysterious structure with countless floors.
Each floor big enough to harbor several civilizations oblivious of each other’s existence or the outside world. The Tower is a place where ambitions and desires come to fruition; hence, the very reason people try to climb it by battling out with each other and the unknown dangers.
The Tower is enwrapped in a field of Shinsu – a mana-like substance that offers horrifying powers to the user. With countless twists and turn and 100X intimidating battle sequences, this is a must-read.
An important prerequisite in a battle is a powerful weapon, and this manhwa got heaps of it. An important class of weapons in the Tower is Ignition Weapons.
These weapons are created using a special kind of thick shinsu bearing a soul which will only yield to its true master. They look like any other normal weapons but, once ignited, give out powerful blows releasing massive amounts of energy.
These weapons are further divided into many categories depending on their characteristics. Ignition Weapons are ranked from F to S depending on their strength, F being the lowest and S the strongest. Here we have compiled a list of the Top 10 Powerful Weapons in the Tower of God.

- 7. Donghae –
Donghae is an ignition weapon under the possession of Hatsu. However, the extent of its powers is still unknown as Hatsu has never used this weapon as it is difficult to wield.

- 6. Seven Sacred Swords –
These swords are a type of ignition weapon which contains seven fragments of the soul of a powerful monster who once ravaged the homeland of Hong Danhwa and Hong Chunhwa.

- 3. 13 Month Series –
These are the most powerful class under ignition weapons. These are bestowed by King Zahard upon the Princesses of Zahard. Each of the 13 swords possesses a soul waiting for its true master.
Once ignited, it releases massive amounts of power, which is a sight to behold. These swords were created for the princesses to battle over them as the princess who possesses all thirteen of them will become Zahard’s queen.
However, igniting the sword takes a massive toll on the wielder. Once Enne Zahard tried to ignite two swords simultaneously only to lose her mental balance.
Currently, the Golden November possessed by Adori Zahard– Captain of the Royal Guards in Zahard’s army is the only S- rank weapon amongst them.
- 2. Needle of War –

For as long as I can remember I was introduced to the beautiful world of anime when I was in 6th standard. The first anime I ever saw was Gakuen Alice. Suddenly a new world of possibilities and hope opened and since then I have never looked back. As a proud otaku, the thing that interests me the most about anime is its never-ending genres- it caters to the emotions and fantasies of millions. An alternate reality where one can let loose their wings and fly.
