A weapon that resembles that of a gun crossed with a sword, used by characters in Final Fantasy 8.

The hilt of the Gunblade is actually an enlarged gun grip, complete with trigger and cylinder. A large sword extends from where the barrel should be. The tip of the Gunblade has no exit hole, and therefore fires no projectile. Instead the ammo is some sort of kenetic-based explosive that when fired, charges the blade and allows it to do more damage while striking.

Only two known "real world" working Gunblades have been made based on the Final Fantasy weapon design. It is still unknown how the mechanics of the ammunition work in these.
