Nissin's 'Ultima Weapon Fork' is a Reference to Final Fantasy

For those with even a cursory knowledge of the Final Fantasy video game franchise, Nissin's 'Ultima Weapon Fork' will provide a chuckle. The novelty utensil is a gigantic, sword-shaped noodle fork designed to go in tandem with Nissin's Final Fantasy-themed 'Cup Noodle' packs.

One of the hallmarks of the Final Fantasy series is the characters' dramatically oversize weapons. Many of the most beloved characters from the series carry swords and axes that are larger than their entire bodies. In honor of those exaggerated armaments, the Ultima Weapon Fork is substantially larger than the average kitchen fork, measuring 60 centimeters long and replete with a sword-like body and hilt.

The Ultima Weapon Fork isn't the first collaboration between Nissin and Final Fantasy. The companies recently released a parody trailer for a game called 'Cup Noodle XV' that replaced Final Fantasy characters with noodle bowls.
