Appleseed (1988)

Appleseed is a 70 minute one-shot OVA based on the 1985-1989 manga series of the same name written by Masamune Shirow (creator of Ghost in the Shell, New Dominion Tank Police and Black Magic M-66).

The following weapons were used in the OVA Appleseed:



Several Olympus Police officers in the OVA are armed with generic M1911 pistols.

Browning Hi-Power

One of the ill-fated terrorists at the beginning of the OVA carries a commercial Browning Hi-Power.

Colt MK IV Series 70

Deunan Knute's sidearm of choice is a Colt MK IV Series 70 .45 caliber pistol. Of all the weapons in the OVA, this one undoubtedly gets the most screentime.

Submachine Guns


One of the plainclothes officers at the beginning of the OVA is armed with a MAC-11 submachine gun, which he has hidden under a magazine in the back seat of the officers' car.

"Terrorists, man! I always say, you gotta' be prepared!" The nervous cop cocks the bolt on his MAC-11


Briareos Hecatonchires' weapon of choice is a MAC-10 submachine gun. Being a 7-foot tall, near-totally mechanical cyborg, he is easily able to fire the gun one-handed on full auto with minimal loss of control.

Ingram MAC-10 - .45 ACP

Briareos fires his MAC-10 at a group of terrorists

Heckler & Koch MP5A2

Several police officers are armed with H&K MP5A2s with slimline handguards.

Two of the cyborg terrorists in the opening sequence are armed with M16A1 rifles. In a possible continuity error, in the next shot, the rifle has a 20 round magazine instead of the 30 round magazine it started out with.

The S.W.A.T. snipers during the first terrorist attack are seen using a H&K PSG-1 sniper rifles outfitted with bipods.

Briareos' Rifle

Briareos is seen using an extremely large, high caliber bullpup rifle when Hitomi is kidnapped. This is a fictional rifle that appears several times in the manga and is usually used by LandMates. Given Briareos' size and strength, he is able to use this weapon like a regular assault rifle.

"That's far enough. Do what I say and this won't go off." Briareos holds an enemy LandMate at gunpoint.
"Alright, hot shot, drop da' girl or I'll fill you so full a' holes you'll be winnin' the next Mr. Swiss Cheese contest. You're really begginin' to piss me off, now drop da' fuckin' girl!" When you're a cyborg with a huge assault rifle, you can give all the cheesy one-liners you want.

Machine Guns

Browning M1919

The officers who try to arrest the terrorist at the beginning of the OVA wind up on the business end of a Browning M1919 mounted to an M2 tripod.

All of the patrol helicopters used by the Olympus Air Police are equipped with GAU-19/A Gatling guns.

M61 Vulcan

In addition to its battery of cannons, the Multipede Cannon is equipped with a pair of M61 Vulcan rotary guns.

Grenade Launchers

Heckler & Koch HK69A1

The ES.W.A.T. team that responds to the initial terrorist attack uses HK69 grenade launchers to fill the terrorists' holdout with CS gas.

During the confrontation with Calon, Deunan uses a M79 grenade launcher outfitted with a red dot scope. Given the fact that she's confronting a LandMate, this configuration doesn't seem as absurd as it would anywhere else.

Landmate Guns

The LandMates (a halfway point between a mecha and power armor) seen in the OVA use a set of specialized weapons for LandMate-on-LandMate combat. The rifles carried by the ES.W.A.T.'s CADMOS LandMates appear to be simple bullpup rifles reminiscent of the Norinco Type 86S, while the industrial LandMates used by the HLU terrorists carry rifles with a conventional LR-300-esque design. All of these weapons have been scaled up to accommodate the larger dimensions of a LandMate and appear to fire large caliber armor-piercing rounds anywhere between 12mm to 20mm.
