Weapons

MAIN WEAPONS
SUB-WEAPONS

A weapon's attack power is relative to the number of hits it takes to defeat a certain enemy.
This one, for example:
Takes 10 Hits with  to kill.
Takes 5 Hits with  & to kill.
Takes 4 Hits with  to kill.
Takes 3 Hits with  to kill.
From here, you can estimate about how strong weapons are:
 Is the weakest weapon, obviously, since it is your first.  For simplicity, lets say each hit with this does  heart worth of damage to an enemy per hit.
Is 2x as strong as the YoYo, as it takes 1/2 the number of hits to kill said enemy.
Has the same attack power as Shooting Star, as it takes the same number of hits to kill the enemy.
Is 1.5x as strong as the Shooting Star (or 3x stronger than YoYo if you want to look at it that way).  It's assumed that this was 2x as strong as Shooting Star, though it's not.  If it were, it would only take 3 hits, not 4, to kill the aforementioned enemy.
This one, however, does only take 3 hits to kill said enemy; which would make it an actual 2x stronger than the Shooting Star, as well as making it stronger than the Super Nova weapon itself.  Not sure if the programmers made this intentional or not.  Though, there are not many of these around.
So yeah... that's basically it.  Also, at different parts of the game with different sub-weapon types, a comparison was also made between them and the YoYo/Shooting Star weapons & attack power for them was calculated from there.
