Warhammer 40K reference, a power sword (and most power weapons in general) is weapon that is sheathed in a field of energy which disrupts solid matter, allowing the weapon to easily tear through armour. Like this.

Which reminds me, Vita needs a thunder hammer.

A chainsword would be great for sawing off Cypha's arms again. A Power Sword would do that job way too quickly for satisfaction. ^^

...what? A guy can dream, can't he?

Also, poor Tea will never live it down, apparently. :3

No, Signum needs Magna sword. Not sure I have a proper image or description of it, but its a Celestial blade wielded by Angel refugees in the war against the phyrexians (Mtg)

I guess the catch is, she sorta of has a glowing flaming sword that would otherwise cut through anything.

Edit: I forgot this angel wields one, its more powerful than the original ones, of course.

I like this one, it fits the comparission people has make of Signum with Archangel Michael. It could be cool if said sword have an origin more akin to magic than science-y stuff xD!

Also, from the GOD thread:

Speaking of Zaffy, anyone knows what he is doing in Force? I think I miss out that part.
I always tought Vita was the toughest member of the Wolkenritter, her endurance and resillence seems to be superior than most other characters.

I thought Vita was all about breaking shields, defenses and any other protections you can imagine.

Yes, but she also lacks dodging abilities and is usually one of the characters who receives the most punishment during battles yet she usually manage to withstand and fight with considerable strenght and power. Kind of a berserker.

Someone called Erio a "fragile speedster" in the GoD thread...
Is that still true in Force ?
I don`t see Dragon Knights as such, but... I guess my idea what a dragon knight is might be different in Nanoha. : k

Until I actually see someone not being one-shot by Curren, I am not calling someone fragile on that alone.

There's two ways to define this until official info clarfies this:

1) The pages of Curren's book have the specific power to take down anyone in one swing.

2) They're an attack strong enough to take down even a super-tough warrior like Vita and thus, being able to take down someone more fragile like Erio can be practically taken for granted.

Now that you mentioned this i come to realize something: We already argumented about why on earth the TSAB send mages to fight the "Mage Killers" while having Combat cyborgs perfectly capable of facing them. And then i remembered about Runessa Magnus and her Device that also doubles as a gun with very real bullets, it's mentioned that she accquired a special permission to carry such a weapon.

Assuming she's not the only agent allowed to do that considering how vast the TSAB is ....why they didn't called some of those special agents to be part of Section Six? certainly they at least have a slightly better fighting chance against an Eclipse Driver or at least Eclipse carriers. Or by that matter? Why they don't trained the mages of S6 in the use of hybrid devices like Silver Dagger and equpped them with some of those? If Signum is to be believed they were on the Huckebein's tail for quite some time by the start of the season.

One thing is being delayed by the developement of new weaponry but the TSAB already had people with weaponry adapted to face anti-magic yet they never made good use of those.

Yeah if they are truly killers, they are too light handed with them. At some point, Hayate looks like an idiot (even if her hands are tied, having to use what she has at hand)

An illusion created by her position as front attacker in StrikerS and it's shafting of Zafira.

Remember that Zafira is called the guardian beast, and he actually takes on the guarding role on several occasions in A's, casting the biggest barrier we've ever seen when facing Chrono.

Subaru didn't fare that well, being a Combat Cyborg and all....

Relooking at the scene where Divide Zero Eclipse activated, I think the toughest is Erio whom can still hold on. The others including the Hukebein are all grounded and Fate's heart was even stopped.

Stormbringer. That motherfcker EATS THE SOUL of those she hit, even from a mere scratch. And being eaten by Stormbringer IS getting subject to a fate worse than death.
