Mêlée weapons are weapons used for short range combat. In Nausicaä's world, people often use ceramic and Ohmu-shell weapons, such as swords, knives, battleaxes and sabres. Various armed groups typically use different types of mêlée weapons.

Weapons by Group Edit

Periphery Edit

Yupa uses a Ohmu Shell longsword and dagger in Florentine style in combat [1]. Asbel used a longsword with a sabre grip [2]. Nausicaä uses an Ohmu Shell sword and a ceramic short sword/knife [3].

Torumekian Edit

Kushana and the Imperial Guard use Torumekian Cavalry Sabres. The Torumekian Duelist used a large, battleaxe with a spike on the reverse of the head [4].

Doroks warriors use swords and daggers. Oftentimes blades are built into pistols and rifles.

Worm Handlers Edit

Worm Handlers use longswords similar to the Periphery [5]. They also use some form of Guisarm or Fauchard polearm [6]. Bolas are also used [7]. Spiked clubs [8] are used by Worm Handler women in the Worm Handler Enclave.
