** Ashley Williams in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', who can carry a Revenant light machine gun and a Widow sniper rifle at the same time. Or a [[DownloadableContent N7 Typhoon machine gun]], which is even bigger, heavier and more powerful than the Revenant.

* [=Art3mis=] from ''Film/ReadyPlayerOne'' wields [[ShoutOut the very same M41A pulse rifle]] as Private Vasquez mentioned above despite being a petite and not particularly tall girl. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] though, given that [=Art3mis=] is an avatar in an enormous VirtualReality game where fun-infringing stuff like weapon weight is a non-issue.

* It's often suggested that female shooters use the heaviest gun they can comfortably wield, since females tend to have less upper-body strength for resisting recoil, and heavier guns recoil less.

-->'''Rooster Cogburn''': Why, by God, girl, that's a Colt's Dragoon! You're no bigger than a corn nubbin, what're you doing with all this pistol?
-->'''Mattie''': It belonged to my father, he carried it bravely in the war, and I intend to kill Tom Chaney with it if the law fails to do so.
-->'''Rooster''': Well, this'll sure get the job done if you can find a fence post to rest it on while you take aim.

* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' fanfic of Creator/AAPessimal, there is[[BadassIsraeli Rivka ben-Divorah]] (who on our world might get a job offer from Mossad) a girl barely five feet tall but who, a trained Assassin, is ''good'' with weaponry of all shapes and sizes. Quite often, the bigger and trhe more potent, the ''better''. Among other things, she shares half the credit for sinking a warship with what amounts to a makeshift torpedo.[[note]]Rivka, according to WordOfGod, is explicitly based on Nathalie Portman's character Mathilde[[/note]]

* Jennifer Grey of ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' strives for a little more realism than other examples on this list. Only a little, though, becauseAt one point she's still [[GunsAkimbo dual-wielding]] {{Hand Cannon}}s, with a {{BFG}} left over in reserve.

* Small female figures wielding absurdly large weapons are disturbingly common in miniature gaming, especially from freelance ranges which are not officially attached to a ruleset. Often there is no thought given to holsters or extra ammo. One case in particular was [[BadassGrandma Abuela Ortega]] from ''TabletopGame/{{Malifaux}}'', whose first edition appearance was of a little old lady with an immense shotgun or blunderbuss, which she just wouldn't swap for a more practical weapon. Firing it caused the miniature to [[LawOfInverseRecoil move backwards across the tabletop]].
