It's useless! I can't hit it.

Security Guard, shooting at Lucy, and first stating what may as well be an in-series meme concerning most firearms

This is a listing of the various firearms seen in use in the anime version of the Elfen Lied series. For the most part, the firearms seen in the manga version are much harder to determine with any real accuracy. While they may in fact be identical to those shown in the anime and are certainly the same type, a true determination is impossible. A separate listing below will speak broadly of these.

Weapons are listed here by order of appearance in the episode: images shown are merely the best visual representation in-series and do not necessarily follow this order.

Admin's Note : Any and all debate over the nature of firearms, for or against, is flatly forbidden here. The issue is far too contentious, and in any event can not be settled here. These weapons are a part of the Elfen Lied universe, and most who use them in it have reasons for using them, in situations and with outlooks that render any such debate totally moot.
