#'''MacGyver [[ImprobableWeaponUser Rule]]:''' ''Other than for the protagonists, your choice of weapons is not limited to the prosaic guns, clubs, or swords. Given appropriate skills, you can cut a bloody swath across the continent using [[WeaponsKitchenSink gloves, combs, umbrellas, megaphones, dictionaries, sketching tablets]] -- you name it, you can kill with it. Even better, no matter how surreal your choice of armament, every store you pass will just happen to [[SortingAlgorithmOfWeaponEffectiveness stock an even better model of it]] for a very reasonable price. Who else is running around the world killing people with an [[ParasolOfPain umbrella]]?''
