** 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.

* Marvel What-The? parody of course had a field day with their Punisher expy. And of course the villians overlooked the bazooka in his underpants.

* Happened to Chazz Palminteri's character in ''Theatre/{{Oscar}}''. The pile of weapons removed from his person was so large and varied (including a meathook, a ''morning star,'' and a ''ticking bundle of dynamite'') that it drove Creator/SylvesterStallone's character to say, "It's like disarming Germany." [[note]][[DontExplainTheJoke For those unfamiliar with the joke]], the movie was set during the Prohibition period, at which point Germany was supposedly disarmed following WorldWarOne. The joke is [[WorldWarTwo we all know how well that turned out...]][[/note]]

* In many LARP systems, characters can potentially be armed with as many weapons as the player can physically carry. Under the right circumstances, this can include six swords (two at each hip and two crossed across the back), five knives (one tucked into the front of a belt, two in the boots/greaves, one on the back of each vambrace), any number of thrown knives in multiple bandoliers, a tower shield in one hand, a spear or polearm in the other and clawed gloves over the fingers. Not including potions, poisons, scrolls, magic tokens/cards and anything else that can be fit into a pocket or satchel.... All of which need to be removed at Time Out (or, quiet often, when the player would like to sit down or bend over to tie their shoelaces....!)

If it's a relatively serious show, this is often used to boost a character's BadAss quotient. If it's a comedy, it's often used to highlight someone's HyperspaceArsenal. Though usually restricted to comedy or comic scenes, a character whose ExtendedDisarming reveals that they are a KnifeNut with a vast array of small, realistically-concealed weapons can make for a moment of squirming unease; particularly when they inevitably recover their former arsenal.

* ''Series/TheMiddleMan'': The titular Middleman does this in the first episode, leaving Wendy Watson to hold a pile of things that were highly improbable to have been on his person; including a [[StarWars lightsaberesque device]] and a small crossbow. And the BadAss point is driven home as he still emptied out the bar and got his man in moments.

* ''Lobo: Bounty Hunting for Fun and Profit''. "I always carry a big gun, a backup gun, a backup backup gun, some frag grenades, a big knife ''(the size of a cleaver)'', an' some smaller knives, a selection of garrotes an' knuckledusters, some more frag grenades, a hook an' chain... oh, and an exploding see-gar." ''(he takes his cigar out of his mouth just before it explodes)''
* {{Deadpool}} is famous for pulling out a convenient weapon out of seemingly ''nowhere.'' One time where he actually used this trope (returning a large amount of weapons to other characters), when asked how he carried all of it, he simply stated, "[[{{Squick}} It involves a lot of lubricant.]]"

* In ''Film/{{Sahara}}'', the heroes find it advantageous to disarm. Dirk and Eva drop their [=AKs=], while Al drops his AK, the spare magazines, a brace of pistols and ''their'' magazines, and so on. The first two give Al a look of disbelief and he only responds with a [[DefensiveWhat "What?"]]
