Smoking Pipes are the default weapon for Goemon. There are various different pipes featured in the series.


Traditional Pipe: The standard pipe seen in most games. It appears to be made of polished wood and has no specific special effects. In most games, it first gets upgraded to a golden pipe, and then to a yo-yo or any other long-reaching item.

Chain Pipe: This pipe is used to hit far off targets. In Ganbare Goemon 2: Kiteretsu Shōgun Magginesu, it is the final powerup to Goemon's pipe. When Goemon swings the chain pipe in Ganbare Goemon 2, it is engulfed in flames. In Mystical Ninja starring Goemon, it is given to him by Mokubei in his workshop on Mt. Fuji.


  • The Pipe makes a cameo appearance as a weapon in the turn-based strategy game Vandal Hearts II (also by Konami). Its description states that it was used by a "mystical ninja", in a direct reference to the Mystical Ninja series.
