2. Pepper Spray Self-Defense iPhone Cases
A few years back, there was a weird trend in iPhone cases. While most cases focus on protecting your phone, these self-defense cases were supposed to protect you. If you got mugged, these cases would let you fight back. The case pictured above is an iPhone 3-era case that shoots pepper spray at any would-be attacker. It was also made for the iPhone 4. More recently, a company called Yellow Jacket made an iPhone case with a built-in taser. We haven’t seen any cases like these for the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus yet, but it’s probably only a matter of time.
3. Knuckle Duster iPhone Cases
The weird thing about these knuckle duster cases is that we’ve seen them from several different companies. The case pictured above is for the iPhone 6, made from metal. We’ve also seen similar cases for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4/4s that are made from hard plastic. While they might not be all that useful in a fight, these cases are kind of handy if you have a habit of dropping your device.

If you are totally paranoid, this might be the weird iPhone case for you. This smartphone case has a lens cover that prevents your camera from taking any photographs on accident.

When you slide the cover in pace, a fiber interior simultaneously cleans the lens of the camera.
5. Weird Giant Ear iPhone Cases
Who wants to look like they have a giant ear? It can’t be that many people, right? We’re guessing this wasn’t a big seller, since we’ve been unable to track down a version of this case for the newer iPhone 6 or 6 Plus.

6. Jelly Belly ‘Strawberry Cheesecake’-Scented iPhone Cases
Man, this case would be a nightmare to use when you’re on a diet. The idea of a scented case is kind of cool, but we wonder how long the smell would stick around.

8. Starbucks Coffee Silicone iPhone 6 Plus Case
You’d have to be a pretty serious coffee addict to want your iPhone case to look like a cup of coffee. It’s definitely a weird shape, and this case would almost certainly be a pain to get out of a jacket pocket or backpack. At least it’s made from silicone, so it should provide some basic drop protection. This iPhone 6 Plus case. We’ve also seen an iPhone 6 version of this case, but it was not available at publication time. For even more coffee fun, you could pair this case with some Starbucks plug jacks.
9. iPhone 5c Cork Cases
Alright, these aren’t weird cases because of their design. In fact, that colorful iPhone 5c case is actually pretty cute. That being said, it is kind of strange to make a case out of cork. Sure, it’s got a little bit of spring built into it. But cork isn’t exactly the most resilient material out there. After a few months, this case is likely to start peeling and disintegrating. It’s just one of those materials you can’t help wanting to pick at when you’re bored. So unless you need to plug up an open wine bottle, this case probably isn’t the best option out there.
10. ‘Attack on Titan’ Super Hard Blade iPhone Case
Look, we get it. Attack on Titan is a wildly popular anime series, both in Japan and in America. That being said, this iPhone case is kind of a weird choice for anyone to buy and use every day. As TUAW pointed out, this case is kind of dangerous. If you walk into a crowded place, someone who doesn’t know the show is likely to think you’re holding some kind of detonator or weapon. Using this weird iPhone case in public could be just as dangerous as using one of those iPhone 6 gun cases.
