1. Enma From One Piece
In Japanese-Buddhist mythology, Enma is the king of Hell and the judge of dead souls. He is the Japanese version of Yama, this same king of Hell found in Buddhist sects throughout East Asia; Enma is based on the Chinese-Buddhist Yánluó, based on the Hindu (Vedic) god of death, also known as Yama.
Enma, along with Ame no Habakiri, is said to be a match for even Shusui, wielded by Shimotsuki Ryuma. Enma is extremely difficult to master because it drains all Haki from its user, causing their bodies to shrivel up in the process.
2. Tessaiga From Inuyasha
Tessaiga, Iron-Crushing Fang or Steel-Cleaving Fang, also represented as Tetsusaiga, is a powerful yokai sword wielded by Inuyasha during the main story. It was originally owned by his father, who had instructed Totosai to forge the sword using one of his fangs as material.
When properly welded, it can transform into a weapon the size of a car bumper that resembles a falchion. The Tessaiga will only transform if the user cares about humans and has yoki, which means that humans will never be able to wield it because they lack yoki.

12. Demon-Slayer Sword From Black Clover
The sword has the ability to cut magic with its edges and reflect it with its flat. When used to cut anything else, however, it is reduced to a harsh sword that uses blunt trauma to impact negative damage on the opponent.

15. Black Nichirin Swords From Demon Slayer
Kanjiro wields the most mysterious sword color in Demon Slayer. The black blade symbolizes the Sun and is surrounded by intolerance and misconceptions, as every demon slayer who has used it has died young.
Tanjiro Kamado wields a “Black Nichirin blade,” but its symbolism is unknown. Black blades are considered rare because demon slayers who wield them die young. Tanjiro is an excellent example because he only became a Demon Slayer and obtained his black Nichirin after a Human demon Slayer for most of his family.
