Puella Magi Madoka Magica (2011)

The following weapons were used in the anime series Puella Magi Madoka Magica:


Beretta 92FS

Homura Akemi uses a Beretta 92FS. Presumably stolen from a US Army base, meaning that it is intended to be a U.S. military issued Beretta M9.

Beretta 92FS - 9x19mm.

Desert Eagle Mark XIX

Homura steals a Desert Eagle Mark XIX from a Yakuza locker room.

Desert Eagle Mark XIX - .50 AE.


Remington Model 870

A Remington M870 with a ribbed barrel and synthetic furniture is stolen along with a Desert Eagle and a sword from a Yakuza locker room.

Remington 870 Field Gun with raised barrel ribbing and 28" barrel - 12 Gauge.


Percussion-lock rifled musket

Mami Tomoe's main weapons are magically summoned percussion rifles. Endless numbers of them can be summoned to be wielded as clubs and fired by hand or remotely by magic. They are able to fire shotgun shells, as well as strings that emerge from her bullets to wrap around and restrain targets.

Mami is able to summon widely varying lengths, sizes, and calibers, as can be seen in the Tiro Finale. She even summons double-barrel shotguns and a handgun in the follow-up movie, but mostly uses the rifles in full infantry length, alongside carbines.

They're interestingly referred to as "rifled muskets," which would imply that they were originally a smoothbore design that was upgraded with rifling.

Mami is never seen reloading, instead tossing fired weapons aside and grabbing or summoning another.
She aims a rifle under distress. Note the aggressive rifling.
The concept art shows the rifling as well as the neglected ramrod.
She don't miss. Her bullets emit strings from their holes to restrain a witch.

Howa Type 89

Homura steals a Howa Type 89 from a JGSDF base. Mainly used to defend herself from witch minions especially during Walpurgis night.

Howa Type 89 in 5.56x45mm with integral bipod. Currently in use by the Modern Japanese military.
Note the hyperbolic muzzle flash; not quite what military 5.56 out of a 16 inch barrel and a flash hider would look like.

Machine Guns


Homura is seen killing witches with a hybrid M249 SAW that appears to be a Para variant with a fixed or collapsible stock. Presumably stolen from either a JGSDF or a US Army base.

M249-E2 SAW - 5.56x45mm with 200 round ammo drum.
M249 Paratrooper SAW - 5.56x45mm with 200 round ammo drum


M26 hand grenade

Homura uses several M26 hand grenades.


M84 stun grenade

Homura uses a M84 stun grenade in episode 9.


Pipe Bomb

On request from Mami to find a more potent weapon than a golf club, Homura creates home-made pipe bombs with instruction from the internet.


Heavy Weapons


During the final battle dozens of AT-4s are summoned from Homura's "hammer space" along with RPGs and fired en masse at Walpurgis Night.

AT4 - 84mm


During the final battle dozens of RPG-7s are summoned along with AT-4s and fired en masse at Walpurgis Night.

RPG-7 - 40mm

M224 mortar

A battery of M224 Mortar are seen firing at Walpurgis Night during the final battle. Presumably stolen from United States Forces Japan stocks.

M224 Mortar with M7 baseplate - 60mm

Type 88 Surface-to-Ship Missile

Homura summons a battery of Type 88 SSMs during the Walpurgis Night. Presumably stolen from JGSDF stocks.

JGSDF Type 88 Surface-to-Ship Missile battery

Finale Cannon

Mami uses three immensely sized percussion cannon in her finishing move, called the Tiro Finale. The first is one equipped with a percussion-lock, used in Episode 2.

Finale Cannon #2, used in Episode 3, is noticeably smaller, and has the black cosmetic panels seen on her muskets, but interestingly features no action; Mami magically ignites the match of the weapon to fire it.

Finale Cannon #3 is seen in the same episode and is used as a mounted weapon via bipod. Mami also operates an actual grip on the weapon instead of tucking it under her shoulder like the other two.

Finale Cannon #1. So large that Mami has to use two whole hands, and so powerful that a fireball is formed at the muzzle before the weapon is even discharged.
Finale Cannon #2. Mami goes back to one hand while observing her work.
The magical wink used to ignite the match.
Finale Cannon #3. Guess the weight of the previous two did a number on her shoulders.
