* 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 tonfa/rocket launchers. One of these days, ''these'' boots are gonna walk all over you.

* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' has a few characters do this, given that the franchise's signature finisher is a kick attack. Examples include ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'''s 'Wake Up Fever', and ''Series/KamenRiderOOO''[='=]s Condor and Wani legs. Special mention goes to ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'', who, due to his module system, has a choice of about ten attachments for each leg, many of them weapons such as a chainsaw, gatling gun or missile launcher. His finisher uses his favorite- a drill equipped to his left leg.

** Series/KamenRiderKiva doesn't have an actual weapon, but his right leg has chain-shaped {{Power Limiter}}s on it; for his FinishingMove, the chains shatter

** Most
of about ten attachments for each leg, many of them Series/KamenRiderOOO's alternate leg forms grant appropriately animal-themed weapons such as or attacks; the Condor Legs grant talons while the Alligator and Tyrannosaurus Legs generate spectral images of their respective animals' heads when OOO kicks. To a lesser extent, the Elephant Legs let him perform {{Seismic Stomp}}s and the Octopus Legs can split into tentacles which he uses to barrage the enemy.
** Series/KamenRiderFourze takes the cake, with his Astroswitches granting a total of 20 different weapons and abilities to his legs alone. This list includes a missile launcher, a Gatling gun, a toe-mounted
chainsaw, gatling gun or missile launcher. His finisher uses and a pogo stick; his favorite- most commonly used is a drill equipped [[ThisIsADrill drill]] used to perform his left leg.version of the Rider Kick. Furthermore, the arcade game ''Ganbaride'' gave Fourze access to Legend Rider powers, which mounted a few Riders' signature weapons (like [[Series/KamenRiderX X-Rider's cane]] and [[Series/KamenRiderBlade Blade's sword]]) on his legs.

* With LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, it was only natural to have at least one entry from the ''VideoGame/{{Suikoden}}'' series fight with their feet. In this case, it's [[SuikodenII Wakaba]], whose "Shin Guards" can actually be improved by a blacksmith as the game progresses; presumably, her ArmedLegs add to her fierce, [[Franchise/StreetFighter Chun-Li]]-style kicks.

** ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'' introduces [[{{Cyborg}} Nove]] and her Jet Edge rollerblade Device to the franchise. She has a PowerFist as well, but tends to use the armored [[RollerbladeGood rollerblades]] more often.

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.
