  • 17. I'd have guessed Vampire Killer from the Castlevania series; are there clues to indicate that it is much more likely to be Indiana Jones? – Sean Middleditch Dec 15 '15 at 18:30

    @SeanMiddleditch We've had some people cross-check my list against the footer of the actual poster, which lists the intended influences; none of them brought up Castlevania, so I'm fairly confident it was intended to be Indy's whip. Still, it's interesting so I added a note – Jason Baker Dec 15 '15 at 18:35
  • 32's handle makes it Harry Potter's wand – ZenLogic Dec 15 '15 at 23:27
  • How do you know 38 is Excalibur? It looks like a fairly generic cruciform sword to me. – Xavon_Wrentaile Feb 26 '16 at 0:14
  • @Xavon_Wrentaile See edit. Some variation on that design crops up a lot when searching for images of Excalibur – Jason Baker Feb 26 '16 at 0:54

  • I like how you named the Tetris blocks, favourite part of all answers. – CandiedMango Dec 15 '15 at 4:48

Seems pretty right. 33.) Chainsaw is definitely evil dead. You can see the severed hand socket on the end but Leatherface MUST BE repped (if Jason and Freddy are. Where's Mikey's butcher knife?). I think 44 could be alot of samurai sword weilding characters (tho Hanzo is most likely) kinda generic. Why Tetris blocks and pokeballs. A yo-yo is more of a weapon. (that was it's original purpose, lol...Google it) I do really like this however.
