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.

* In ''ComicBook/TransformersCombinerWars'', the rebuilt combiners Menasor and Superion, as well as new combiners Defensor and Optimus Maximus all have guns built into their feet, matching the action figures (in the toy line, all figures that can become an arm or a leg have an accessory that can be either a hand with guns protruding from the knuckles or a foot with two guns for toes). Defensor actually uses his for extra punishment when he kicks Devastator in the head while simultaneously shooting the guns on that foot.
