The Hobbit Analysis

Adam Souza's insight:

In the Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Bilbo welds the dagger called sting when Bilbo and his followers invade a troll-hoard. This weapon is magical because whenever orcs approach  or are near to either Sting, Orcrist, or Glamdring, they are enchanted to glow a blue color as a sort of warning system so that the wielder can either avoid the orcs, or understand that they are near.

YAY! It's "Peaches"...also directed by Roman. LOOKOUT!
Adam Souza's insight:

In the music video for "Peaches" by The Presidents of the United States, the end of the video has ninjas who attack the artists, and the artists use the magical power of their bodies to defeat the ninjas. When the ninjas attack, and the Presidents retaliate, the ninjas go flying when they are hit, so it is possible that the Presidents have some kind of magical people, or their bodies are some sort of magical weapon.

The wands are magical weapons, and could be considered a sword and a shield because they possess the ability to attack and defend the user.

Adam Souza's insight:

In the story of King Arthur and The Lady of the Lake, the Archetype of Magic Weapons is shown through King Arthur's use of the Sword, Excalibur. Excalibur was a magical sword that was encased in rock and guarded by the Lady of the Lake. As the myth states, only the true ruler of Camelot can weld Excalibur, and King Arthur pulls Excalibur out of the rock and becomes the Ruler of Camelot.
