** New Vegas also features a partial aversion to this with "Hardcore Mode" - where (among other things) ammo has weight. At first, it doesn't make much of a difference when individual bullets weigh 1/15 to 1/10 of a pound - but when players start acquiring automatic weapons that eat bullets like candy, or come across rocket launchers whose individual rockets weigh two pounds apiece, it really starts to cut down on what you can carry compared to normal mode. (Though even in hardcore, there are many completely weightless items - including gunpowder and shell casings.)
*** This is made more annoying by many junk items used for crafting being exactly 1 pound, even if it makes no sense. Somehow a scalpel, forceps, and a ''single tin can'' all weigh a whole pound each.

* In ''{{Film/Deadpool|2016}}'' the hero fills a duffel bag with a great many guns (mostly long arms) and what is stated to be 3000 rounds of ammunition. Unless composed entirely of punt .22's, the ammo alone would weigh closed to 100 pounds with the weapons themselves adding an equal amount. While this is nothing a SuperStrength character couldn't handle, the bag he puts it all in sits high up on his back as if it were filled with clothes.

* In ''Film/KellysHeroes'', TheCaper involves a squad of Allied soldiers in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII stealing $16 million in [[NaziGold gold bars]] from a bank behind German lines. In the WW2 era, the price of gold was fixed at $35 per troy ounce, so $16 million worth would weigh 15.67 U.S. short tons and have a volume of 26 cubic feet. It has been calculated that the writers grossly misrepresented the size and weight of that much gold given how much is visible in the movie and the means they use to carry it away.

* ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseofCobra'' features an underwater ice-fall in the finale, though the ice was filled with metal, so possibly more likely. Ice floats because it is less dense than liquid water.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/TomoChanWaOnnanoko'', Carol gives Tomo three gold bars as a birthday present. They're smaller than the usual house brick-sized bars you see in fiction (small enough that she can carry all three bundled in a handkerchief like a ''bento'' box), but she's still a fairly ordinary high schooler and she still carries the bundle in one hand. Amusingly, the weight issue is brought up when Carol mistakes Tomo's shock for disappointment and explains that she went with smaller bars because bigger ones would weigh too much.

* Partially averted in ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan''. The Enforcers try to escape a crime scene with as much gold as they can, but only the [[SuperStrength super-strong]] Ox can carry more than one bar. Earlier in the episode, however, an ''enormous'' stack of gold bars comes down on Spider-Man, and he's only briefly hindered. Even as tough as Spidey is, that much weight would have flattened nearly anything.

*** ''VideoGame/BetrayalAtKrondor'', the predecessor to ''Return'', used weightless money. Then again, inventories were so small that requiring an inventory slot for money would've been outright painful.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/StreetPassMiiPlaza'''s Market Crashers game--not only are all transactions digital (though you do get a money hoard), it's directly brought up in the description for the Golden Model Castle Set:
--> "It's only one foot tall, but it weighs over 60 pounds! What better way to show off your wealth?"
