That's how Square Enix designer Tetsuya Nomura first pitched the game's weapon to Disney.

Square Enix wanted to make a game starring Mickey Mouse, he tells Japanese game mag Famitsu, and Disney wanted a game starring Donald Duck. "Meanwhile," he says with a laugh, "I wanted neither."

What did Nomura want? "The first weapon I showed Disney was a chainsaw," he explains. He had a rough sketch of one in his first concepts he presented to Disney "Everyone got this scrunched-up look on their face and nobody said a word in the entire room. Dead silencer. And I thought, 'No, I guess this wouldn't work, huh?'"
