* In ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', once our heroes decide to collectively start, erm, avenging, we're treated to a montage of Iron Man making repairs to his armor (prepping the new one comes later), Captain America suiting up, Black Widow arming her gauntlets, Thor grabbing Mjolnir, and Hawkeye checking his bow.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' had a very dramatic one before the Day of Black Sun invasion. [[DeadlyDoctor Katara]] loads up on like [[ElementalBaggage four pouches of water]], [[BadassNormal Sokka]] puts on his [[ThunderboltIron sword]] and [[AnimalMotifs cool wolf armor,]], [[LittleMissBadass Toph]] gets Earthbender gear and a [[CoolHelmet helmet]], [[{{Badass}} Appa]] gets [[BlingOfWar some badass armor]] made by Sokka, [[BadassAdorable Aang]] dramatically [[ImportantHaircut shaves his head]] and Zuko takes ''off'' his armor and unfixes his hair in preparation for his HeelFaceTurn.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'' shows the Sherwood gang making themselves into a fighting force. Including casting metal arrowheads, attaching them to shafts, and fletching them. It turns out casting metal is something you can do camped deep in the woods, with just a hot enough fire and simple equipment.

* ''TheWitcher'''s opening sequence features a prolonged montage as Geralt prepares his monster-hunting tools, his swords, a knife, a silver chain, drinks potions etc...
* Happens to Barry in episode 4 of ''AlanWake''. It's off-screen, but we learn about it via a manuscript page, which also {{lampshade|Hanging}}s it.

Added DiffLines:

* Happens in ''Film/SuicideSquad'', when the Squad gears up at the airport before entering Midway City. Probably also counts as a LipstickAndLoadMontage for Harley Quinn.

The ATeamMontage might be seen as a variant. The TransformationSequence is a close cousin, and the ExtendedDisarming the opposite. Sometimes ends up as TechnologyPorn, and in military or law enforcement-themed media it frequently happens during RedAlert.

RedAlert. The ActivationSequence could be considered a technological equivalent.

* Some games instead have an entire army gearing up, like the opening introduction for ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''.

Added DiffLines:

* The opening scene of ''Film/JackReacher'', with emphasis on the load part. Scenes of the killer using a reloading press to handload his ammunition are intercut with the sniper carrying out the murders that set forth the plot.
