* Usually justified, since due to encumbrance penalties, players aren't in the habit of carrying weapons they don't think they'll need. A high-level character might toss four or more daggers in a single round, and a one-minute battle is ten rounds. Replace daggers with throwing axes, or one-shot pistols, or whatever, that's still 40+ weapons.

* Done just for [[ItAmusedMe kicks]] in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8501689/21/The-Havoc-side-of-the-Force The Havoc Side of the Force]]'' when Literature/HarryPotter has to disarm and removes eighteen separate weapons. He had more but stopped there because he felt it'd push the incredulity of things too far.

** Sousuke is ordered to disarm during a hostage situation and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j1migsjdce8 produces]] enough weapons out of his school uniform to arm a small battalion, plus heavy weapons. Cue [[BlueWithShock severe freaking out of said hostage takers]], and a prompting of [[{{Hammerspace}} "Where the hell did you keep all that?!"]]. He later pulls out a detonator.

* WhateleyUniverse has finally touched this, Ayla 7 ("Ayla and the Great Shoulder Angel Conspiracy"), chapter 5. Ayla has a utility belt with hammerspace arsenal, and was asked to show all his hold-outs. He put in a BIT too many in the simulation computer, and they wanted to verify he had them all. He did. Eventually, he was accused of having more weapons than Franchise/{{Batman}}, and was only missing [[LampshadeHanging the bat-launcher, and the 500 feet of cable]].

* In the ''Literature/PrinceRoger'' series when Pedi Karuse goes to negotiate with a gangster she takes quite a while to remove the various weapons she's carrying, both actual weapons (mostly blades of various lengths) and [[ImprovisedWeapon improvised weapons]] (such as a 20-cm long nail file for her horns). While Pedi is [[KnifeNut fond of her blades]] the implication is that she's doing it at least partly to stop the guards from realizing that she doesn't actually need [[HeroesFightBarehanded weapons to beat them up]].

* In ''Literature/TheSpiritThief'', when Josef is put under house arrest, he's asked to surrender all of his weapons. It takes him thirty minutes to get all the knives, shorts swords and other blades out, and when the guards give him a pat-down just in case, they find four more weapons he "forgot". And even then he keeps his magical {{BFS}} with him, as he's the only person capable of moving it.

** Most high-level Fighters are no better, largely due to the fact that they have to carry silver, cold iron, and adamantine weapons for various damage reductions, some that deal slashing, piercing, or bludgeoning damage, with atleast a few types of elemental effects added, backup weapons, and cheap expendable ones for oozes that you wouldn't want eating at your ''good'' stuff, a dagger or shortsword for use while grappling, and some form of ranged weaponry, plus a shield, and that's just the various things they use to ''hit'' people, disregarding the trinkets and doodads they doubtlessly ''also'' have somewhere on their person. CriticalEncumbranceFailure is alot less of a problem when you're TheBigGuy.

* Parodied in ''Film/BrainDonors'' when Jacques is required to empty his pockets in the police station. As this is an {{homage}} to [[MarxBrothers Harpo Marx]] and his bottomless pockets, it's less a display of weaponry than an exercise in general surrealism, ending when Jacques pulls out a rubber foot, looks surprised, looks down at his (off-screen) feet, and promptly falls over.
