* Used interestingly in ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'': the title character is capable of [[GunsAkimbo quadruple-wielding guns]] by virtue of strapping a pair to her heels. The result is a very literal example of CombatStilettos. Also by attaching other weapons to her feet, such as shotguns, revolvers, fire/electricity energy claws, and a pair of rocket launchers. One of these days, ''these'' boots are gonna walk all over you.

SubTrope of WeaponOfChoice. A character whose weapon is greaves or shoes. One of the less [[ImprobableWeaponUser improbable weapon choices]] out there, but still odd. Like TheGrandListOfConsoleRolePlayingGameCliches says for vambraces, expect these characters to still buy their weapons in the weapon store, even if they logically should be in the armor store.

Related to PowerFist, except with boots instead of gloves; may overlap with ExtremityExtremist. Close to, but not to be confused with, MurderousThighs. See also TrickedOutShoes, LegCannon, CombatStilettos and ShoeSlap. No relation to AnArmAndALeg.

* In ''Manga/BusouRenkin'' the female lead has a very pragmatic reason for wearing and keeping a uniform a short skirt, even after she transfers to a school that has the females in a longer one: when she summons her weapon, the Valkyrie Skirt, it appears as scythe-bladed "spider legs" that are worn via metal bands at mid-thigh.
