-->"It's alright Italia-kun. I always bring spare cosplays with me." He reached into some sort of secret compartment behind his back, pulling out an identical outfit to the one the brunet was currently wearing. Seriously, how do anime characters have such an ability?

--> Japan disappeared into a bathroom for a short amount of time before reappearing, now clad in a sharp black suit and tie with a white dress shirt and black pants, taking hexagonal glasses from his pocketóor wherever anime characters store all their stuffóbefore putting them on.

-->"Humph." The larger scoffed back. He then reached into the magical space all anime characters have, whipping out a book conveniently titled 'How to Catch a Runaway Italian'.

-->Both reached into the magical space all anime characters have, extracting black notebooksóJapan's having unidentifiable symbols on its cover as Italy's had 'Death Note' clearly printed on it in gothic lettersóbefore taking out pens and colored pencils as well, opening the pages before scrawling in them.

-->Giggling, the auburn reached into the magical space all anime characters have, an exquisite bouquet of utmost grandeur popping out from behind his back. "Tada!"

** ''ARMA III'' has its own application of this with regards to wetsuits. They're practically a requirement for operations that require going underwater for any length of time, but they're also not armored in any meaningful fashion. To compensate for this, and purely as a gameplay mechanic, they're given a much higher carrying capacity than they rightly should have, enough for the player to hold both a dedicated underwater firearm for the actual swimming ''and'' a regular weapon to switch to once they get on land.



* In ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' the character uses "Storage Deck", a literal Hyperspace Arsenal, to lug all your stuff around. Storage Decks have limited carrying capacity to start with: 12 inventory items, a rather low amount of each type of ammo, and two "active" guns to start with. As you progress through the game these limits increase, via the use of "Storage Deck Upgrades", or [=SDUs=], to 42 inventory items (obtained by rescuing Claptraps), 4 active weapons (obtained by default in the main quest), and a ton of ammo for each weapon (obtained by buying Ammo [=SDUs=] at Ammo Vendors).

** In addition, there is the Bank in Sanctuary in ''[[VideoGame/{{Borderlands2}} Borderlands 2]]'' and in Concordia in ''BorderlandsThePreSequel'' (upgradable with [=SDUs=] from Crazy Earl, natch) where you can store guns that you can have use for at a later time. This is now Awesome AND Practical for DLC, since you can Fast Travel between all the known DLC locations.

The "context sensitive" buttons take it even further, making him pull whatever item he needs at the moment, sometimes in unlimited quatities, such as throwing knives and rolls of toilet paper (ItMakesSenseInContext).

The Series/MythBusters tested whether the arsenal would significantly slow down an actual person who attempted to use this trope in Real Life. The answer was that an ordinary person would be significantly slowed by the extra gear, but a particularly athletic person (such as a professional MMA fighter) might be able to pull it off. [[TropesExaminedByTheMythBusters Verdict: Plausible]].

* ''VideoGame/RoadRedemption'': By the end of the campaign, you can have a pipe wrench, a shovel, a taser, a pistol, a machine gun, a shotgun, a grappling hook, a grenade launcher with three grenades, three plastic explosives, and ten pipe bombs, all coexisting happily in hidden compartments on your bike. You also have a sword, but that SticksToTheBack.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven'' had a tendency to this due to characters' tendency to [[HellBentForLeather wear very tight leather costumes]] or [[KickingAssInAllTheirFinery evening gowns]], but Dayna became particularly notorious for her ability to produce [[GunNut large guns]] and [[MadBomber bombs]] between shots without having had anywhere to stash them.

** Justified in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV''. Noctis, the PlayerCharacter, is of the BloodRoyal and is the only member of the party who can use magic. In addition to a FlashStep, this also gives him the ability to carry his weapons around this way, materializing them if and when needed. This is taken to its logical conclusion with a CollectionSidequest where Noct finds {{Ancestral Weapon}}s belonging to his forebears, which are then deployed in both of his {{Limit Break}}s (one allowing him to use one, the other all of them together).
