* As ComicBook/RedRobin Tim traded in most of the bulky pouches from his utility belt as [[ComicBook/RobinSeries Robin]] for a set of bandoliers with compressed canisters on them to carry around his gear. At least those elements of his gear that ''can'' be compressed.

** They're actually very common in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' universe, particularly on Tatooine. Tusken Raiders wear them, Jawas wear them, and many of Jabba's goons wear them. Though in all those cases they are of the 'leather pouch' variety rather than exposed ammunition. However, in ''Film/TheReturnOfTheJedi'' some Rebel commandos on Endor wear bandoliers holding objects that appear to be grenades.

* In ''Film/TheWarWagon'', Pierce's outriders wear crossed bandoliers. This is to emphasize how heavily armed they are, as each is carrying a Henry repeater, a revolver, and 400 rounds of ammunition.

* This backfires in the Australian film ''The Lighthorsemen'' (1987), when a Turkish bullet strikes an ammunition pouch on the bandolier worn across the chest of a Light Horse soldier, causing all the other pouches to spontaneously detonate.

* In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', HowlingCommandos machine-gunner Gabe Jones - who used a 30 pound (plus ammo) Browning M1919 medium machine gun as his main weapon, solo, even while running through the woods under a volley of mortars - is seen with a single bandolier wrapped around him. ComicBook/CaptainAmerica himself is seen sporting the Pancho Villa version in a propaganda movie, despite him using a drum-magazine Tommy gun. Justified in that these are just props and the in-universe filmmakers probably didn't care.

** The Badass part largely only applies to [[PhysicalGod Colonel]], though, since the other two primary users of the class are [[TheNoob Noob]] and [[CloudCuckooLander Simon]].
