Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex (2002 - 2003)
Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex - The Laughing Man (2005)

Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex is a 26 episode anime series based on the manga of the same name by Masamune Shirow (Appleseed, New Dominion Tank Police) and is the second adaption of Ghost in the Shell after the 1995 film. The series consists of two groups of episodes; "Stand Alone" episodes that have independent storylines, and "Complex" episode, which cover the series' main story. In 2005, the "Complex" episodes were recut into a single film called Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex - The Laughing Man. The series was followed by a 26-episode sequel series, Ghost in the Shell S.A.C. 2nd GIG.

PLEASE NOTE: Although the title is commonly given a colon, the correct title of this series is "Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex", without a colon. Please correct any links that appear incorrectly.

The following weapons were used in the anime series Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex:


Seburo M5

One of the trademark weapons for the series is the fictitious Seburo M5, a compact semiautomatic SA/DA concealed-carry handgun (with a total barrel length of 3.5 inches) that uses a locked-breech operating via a rotating barrel (a system similar to the Beretta Cougar). It's chambered for 5.45x18mm rounds, and feeds from a double-stack magazine with a total capacity of 19+1 rounds. The M5 is the standard sidearm for all Japanese law enforcement agencies.

FN Browning BDA M-7

Batou carries and uses a fictional FN Browning BDA variant in .45ACP throughout the series, referred to in the S.A.C. 2nd GIG Visual Book as an "M-7". It is intended to be a hypothetical future BDA variant (similar to Batou's Jericho 942 in the original Ghost in the Shell film). The most notable differences between the M-7 and the BDA is the M-7's shortened slide and barrel and the horned hammer.

.22 Pocket Pistol

In episode 3, Marshall MacLachlan produces a stainless steel, .22 caliber pocket pistol. The design is fictitious, but draws heavily from the Beretta 3032 Tomcat.

Vektor CP1

The Vektor CP1 makes occasional appearances throughout the series, first in the hands of a "Laughing Man" in episode 6, and more prominently in the hands of Eka Tokura, leader of the Human Evolutionist faction. In the official artbook for S.A.C, the series' mechanical designer mentions how he had wanted to include this weapon ever since he found the material on it, and opted to use the "Laughing Man" assassin for the CP1's first appearance.

Tokarev TT-33

Several Tokarev pistols are seen throughout the series. The first TT-33 appears in the hands of a Russian organ smuggler in episode 19. Several more TT-33s appear in episode 21 as planted weapons left behind by the Narcotics Suppression Squad (NSS) after an illegal raid.

Glock 17

Several Glock 17s are seen in episode 6 in the hands of would-be assassins trying to kill the Superintendent General. Special Security Team operators in episode 13 were armed with the Glock 17 as their main sidearm.

Glock 33AV (AdVance)

A firing range scene in episode 15 depicts Batou evaluating a fictional "advanced" variant of the Glock 33 which features a slightly lengthened barrel housed inside a compensator/barrel weight with an accessory rail, and an extended magazine well in order to comfortably accept full size Glock 19 magazines. This is in fact a product placement tie-in with airsoft manufacturer Tokyo Marui, promoting their then-new G26AV model, which externally appears identical. Promotional material depicting this scene was produced by Tokyo Marui.

Mateba 2008M

Togusa carries a Mateba 2008M throughout the series, which is a fictional entry into the Mateba Autorevolver series. The 2008M quite closely resembles the Mateba Model 6 Unica, but features a barrel assembly similar to the Mateba 2006M. Like one of its real-life inspirations, the 2008M is a semiautomatic revolver with uses the recoil of firing to revolve the cylinder and cock the hammer. Togusa's weapon is chambered in .357 Magnum (Kusanagi refers to it as a 9mm, which is technically correct as the bullet diameter on a .357 is 9 millimeters). He also will occasionally only load 5 rounds so it is easier for him to load and shoot a tracking round at get away cars.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP7

The Maritime Safety Agency SST operators mentioned in episode 13 carry MP7 submachine guns. By the time Section 9 arrives, all but one of the operatives are dead, and he is never seen using his MP7.

Sa. Vz.61 Skorpion

Marcelo Jarti uses a Sa. Vz.61 Skorpion against Togusa in episode 7. Another Vz.61 appears in episode 17 in the hands of a robber. A third Vz.61 is seen being planted by NSS agents in episode 21. All the Skorpions seen in the series have been shown using 20-round magazines.

Police Bullpup Submachine Gun

Japanese SWAT officers used this fictional 9mm bullpup submachine gun as their primary entry weapon. It bears a striking aesthetic resemblance to the Enfield L85 rifle series, but differs in almost every detail upon closer examination (such as the H&K style weapon sight, for example).

Several SWAT officers assist Kusanagi with their L85-esque submachine guns.

Assault Rifles

Seburo C26A

The primary weapon for Section 9 operatives is the fictional Seburo C26A assault rifle. The C26A uses a crooked 50 round box magazine that feeds in a bullpup pattern, entering the gun at 45 degrees from the bore and slanting to lie parallel to the barrel, locking into the front grip. Fired cartridge cases eject into a permanently mounted brass catcher mounted on top of the gun. Its ergonomics are similar to the FN F2000, with the trigger protected by a large loop that serves as a grip for the off hand. It is occasionally seen with a two-stage silencer attachment.

Seburo C30

The Seburo C30 is a variant of the C26A designed for overtly offensive missions. It is built around a C26A receiver and features an added optical sight, underbarrel grenade launcher and extended barrel with jacketing. It is seen covered with a jacket with a brass catcher. It is first seen in episode 13 during Section 9's raid on a ex-offshore radiation scrubber plant turned New World Brigade base.

British Bullpup Rifle

The British police armed response officers at the scene of the wine fund incident are armed with this bullpup rifle. It bears a resemblance to the FN F2000 series of rifles, yet as with the preceding bullpup SMG example, the devil is in the details.

Several British police officers armed with the unidentified bullpup rifle await orders from their commanding officer.

Sniper Rifles

Seburo Anti-Tank Rifle

Saito uses this large-calibre anti-materiel rifle while attempting to stop the runaway HAW-206 tank in episode 2. The rifle itself is fictitious, but draws upon several real-world designs, primarily the Mechem NTW-20 and the Lahti L-39 and its size forces the shooter to rivet down the weapon's bipod. Saito makes use of a computer-assisted targeting system that uses both GPS targeting systems and an interface with Saito's own cybernetics to ensure long-range accuracy.

AK-74M (outfitted as a sniper rifle)

In episode 6, one of the people attempting to assassinate the Superintendent General includes a sniper armed with an AK-74M with a 20-round magazine and a scope attachment. The sniper is subdued by Saito before he can use the weapon.

AK-74M - 5.45x39mm

Seburo Sniper Rifle

This bolt-action .50 BMG rifle first appears during the opening sequence in the pilot episode where Saito is briefly seen covering Kusanagi with it. The rifle is most prominently featured in episode 21 when a battle damaged Kusanagi snags it from Saito and proceeds to pummel round after round into a MSDF Type 303 mech at point blank range. While missing one arm, no less.

This is why it's a bad idea to piss off a cyborg-hacker-ninja-cop.

Civilian Sniper Rifle

This fictional 12mm rifle is seen briefly in episode 18 in the hands of Yu, a young man attempting to assassinate a Chinese politician. The weapon is only seen in disassembled a duffel bag, and Yu never gets an opportunity to use it. In the series' artbook, Tsuneki describes how he created a detailed set of information on this weapon, including assembly and disassembly steps, but that the weapon's appearance was removed from the final script. Yu is mentioned as having had the rifle sent to him piece by piece and to separate P.O. boxes, as such weapons are still illegal for civilians in Japan. The weapon's aesthetics draw heavily from both the Walther WA 2000 and the Accuracy International Arctic Warfare series.

Machine Guns

M249 SAW

In the episode "Jungle Cruise" (episode 10), Batou is seen using an M249 SAW in a flashback to his time as a Ranger in South America during World War III.

GE M134 Minigun

Man-portable M134 Minigun

Batou fields a futuristic man-portable GE M134 Minigun to slow down the incursion of Umibozu troops into Section 9's headquarters in episode 24. The gun is fed by two massive ammunition drums attached underneath and features a chainsaw grip, no doubt inspired by the one featured in Terminator 2.

Airsoft handheld M134 Minigun with 'Chainsaw grip' to handle the recoil force. This variant was seen in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. This is an airsoft version which retains the half-circle attachment point for the M60 foregrip from Predator; the real T2 minigun did not have this - (fake) 7.62x51mm NATO

Power-Suit Machine Gun

The various MSDF Type 303 power suits (essentially a canon-immigrant version of the LandMate suits from Appleseed) seen throughout the series use a large machine gun. The weapon is fed from a detachable box-magazine and features an under-barrel, pump-action grenade launcher.

The heavily armored Gayle fires his machine gun at Batou and Kusanagi. The size of the shell casings suggests that the weapon is at least a .50 caliber.

Unnamed Fictional Rocket Launchers

Two separate fictional rocket launchers are used by Section 9.

  • The first appears in episode 2, where Saito is briefly seen using this laser-guided rocket launcher during Section 9's mission to stop the runaway HAW-303 tank. It is only seen once, and Saito never even fires it, as the multipede tank detects the launcher's laser-targeting system and projects a series of decoy lasers before Saito can fire.

M67 Hand Grenade

Batou uses M67 hand grenade in episode 13 against New World Brigade terrorists trying to stop the extraction of the Section 9 team. He also pulls the grenade pin with his teeth, which is possible by the time of the show since cyberization allows people to do it without being strained.

Prosthetic Weapons

As per the Ghost in the Shell franchise, almost all of the characters have received cybernetic upgrades to their bodies. Naturally, many have decided to take advantage of their now modular physique and have weaponized their own bodies.

Fem's Shotgun

Fem, a Chinese assassin, has a shotgun built into her left arm. Despite its appearance, it is shown to operate on a simple pump-action shotgun mechanism. It seems that anything that can fit properly in the weapon's magazine tube can be fired, and the propellant used for each shot is never identified.

Fem reveals the shotgun built into her arm. This is likely a callback to a similar prosthetic weapon used by Batou in Ghost in the Shell 2.
Fem loads her shotgun with... rolls of coins. Seeing as her target had been selected specifically because of his wealth, Fem decided that this bit of showmanship would be perfect for the job.

Security Maid

Yokose's maids prove to be more than either Fem or Section 9 bargained for.

What could be better that a robotic housekeeper. Oh, right...

Bosyelinov's Tri-Barreled Gun

Cruzkowa Bosyelinov, a Russian organ-smuggler and ex-SVR agent seen in episode 19, has a tri-barreled gun hidden in her elbow alongside a rather large blade in her forearm. She never has the opportunity to fire it, so there are no more details available on how exactly it works.
