In the premise of the story, a newly evolved species of humans, called "Diclonius", came to the world. Notable traits that distinguish "Diclonius" from normal humans are pink hair, horns protruding from the skull, and an invisible set of hands named "vectors", which is able to rip through flesh and material with ease. Due to their tendency to murder humans wherever they roam, the government orders the extermination of the Diclonius and any surviving members of the species that are caught are experimented on in a secret facility. One of these subjects, codenamed "Lucy", stages a bloody escape from the facility, killing everyone in her way except Chief Kurama. Before making her escape, she was hit by a glancing sniper bullet to the head and falls to the sea. The protagonist Kouta and his cousin Yuka found her while walking along the beach, however "Lucy" appears to them in a childlike state, an effect from the bullet hitting her head during her escape and is unable to talk or even say her name. Kouta and Yuka takes her in to their house and name her "Nyuu" for the only word she is able to say. While they tend to "Nyuu", the government begins responding to the escape with the National Police Agency's S.A.T. to apprehend and terminate "Lucy", one of the officers is the bloodthirsty Bandou, who lusts for a combat. The story follows as the Kouta and Yuka gets involved with many incidents the government creates to find and capture "Lucy". The anime based on the manga of the Lynn Okamoto (Gokukoku no Brynhildr).
The following weapons were used in the anime series Elfen Lied:
Kakuzawa, the head of the Diclonius Research Facility, uses a stainless-steel Minebea P9, which is a Japanese licensed copy of the SIG-Sauer P220. The S.A.T. members arresting Lucy and Aiko in the OVA also have the Minebea P9 as their weapon of choice. Isobe pulls out an SIG-Sauer style pistol.
Bandou uses a stainless steel SIG-Sauer P226 to talk down one of his squad mates in a scene in Episode 1,
Desert Eagle Mark XIX
In a rare case of a justified usage of a Desert Eagle Mark XIX, Bandou wields two of these .50AE handguns against any Diclonius he happens to meet (one of the pistol is kept as a backup weapon). He says the pistols are loaded with "custom .50 Tungsten rounds", which can passes through the Diclonius vectors as opposed to normal pistol rounds due to its mass and velocity, making this normally ludicrous weapon choice perfectly reasonable. In Episode 12, a S.A.T. officer fires poorly-rendered Desert Eagle to Lucy.
A M1911A1 pistol is used by Chief Kurama in the final episode.
The Police also uses hammerless pistols at times, they have resemblance to a poorly-rendered Glock 17.
Nambu Model 60
Security guards in the Diclonius Research Facility have Nambu Model 60 revolvers as their sidearms, though they are a poor choice of weapon considering the facility's inmates.
Security guards inside the Diclonius research facility uses the MP5A4 when Number 35 "Mariko" was released.
Both Japanese S.A.T officers and security guards inside the Diclonius research facility uses the MP5A5 sub-machine guns, given that all have a Safe/Semi/Burst/Auto selector option. This is by far most seen weapon in the anime. Lucy also uses a MP5A5 in Episode 2.
MP5A5 with M203 attachment
Bandou uses a unique MP5A5 outfitted with a M203 grenade launcher during his hunt for the escaped Diclonius "Lucy". Disappointingly, he only uses the grenade launcher once despite his MP5 9mm rounds failing to damage Lucy.
Professor Kakuzawa uses a FAMAS G2 in episode 10 to kill a loose Diclonius, stating that while the Diclonius' vectors can block normal bullets such as the MP5 9mm rounds, it can't stop an armor-piercing round such as the 5.56 so easily. Which begs to question if this logic was discovered early, why is the security armory only filled with MP5s?
A AW50F is used by a guard against Lucy in a last-ditch attempt to thwart her escape, using the .50 BMG mass and velocity to penetrate Lucy's vectors.
Accuracy International Arctic Warfare
A S.A.T. sniper in Episode 4 attempted to shoot Lucy with a Accuracy International Arctic Warfare, but misses.
M26 Hand Grenade
S.A.T. member Sato carries a M26 hand grenade.
