* Like all things ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' the sisters of battle take this up to eleven by being an army of normal women in "7-foot-tall-Space Marine" grade power armor with a preference for "7-foot-tall-Space Marine" weapons. Particularly the ones that Melt and Burn things.

* Notably averted with Lt. Karrin Murphy of ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''. She's a 5-foot, petite, blond, ''where the shit did she pull a gun and a badge from'' looker cop. She carries appropriately fun-sized guns. Dresden ribs her for it repeatedly. Next to her? Human linebacker-mountain Hendricks, as well as supernaturals of all sorts, who enjoy packing absurdly-high-calibre guns. Dresden describes them as anything from "assault rifle" to "ICBM". One of her guns (a highly illegal [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FN_P90 P90]]) fits in a box of chocolates. That she got from Kincaid. To remember [[NoodleIncident Hawaii]].

It should be noted that she's perfectly capable of, and certified to, handle much larger guns (and actually has used weapons like shotguns and assault rifles in-series). She simply tends to use the smaller ones because they're easier to hide on her person.

* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'': Captain Janeway brandishes a large compression phaser rifle whenever it's time to get [[Film/{{Aliens}} Sigourney Weaver]] on the MonsterOfTheWeek's butt. See "Macrocosm", "Dark Frontier" and many more.

** In the "Scary-go-round" myth, Kari fires a .50cal rifle, as well as [[http://blogs.discovery.com/.a/6a00d8341bf67c53ef014e871d52dd970d-800wi posing with it.]]
* Dr. Brennan of ''Series/{{Bones}}'' carries what appears to be a stainless .45 revolver for a few episodes, prompting nervous commentary from Agent Booth. In a moment of unusual realism, it get subverted in a later episode; in the midst of a desperate firefight Bones offers Booth her gun, admitting "mine is too big for me." It's a Smith&Wesson .500, the largest caliber handgun available on the market. It's used for metal silhouette target shooting. And moose hunting. [[spoiler: And shooting bad guys through heavy steel doors.]]
* Despite being a size 0, Fiona from ''Series/BurnNotice'' always has a huge shotgun or assault rifle handy nearby.

* Small female figures weilding 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 be moved backwards across the tabletop.

* ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline'' has the human and CAST female Ranger classes, RAmarl and RAcaseal respectively. ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarUniverse'' also has a Ranger class and its offshoots that are open to females of any race. While not always being the case, they can be made as small as a young girl. And with the same customization systems, one could also make a [[GenderFlip Gender Flipped]] example of this trope. Same in ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarZero'' - and the cannons of that game compensate for every penis on the server.

* ''Videogame/{{Iji}}'' complains at the beginning that she can barely lift her Nanogun. Hardly surprising, as it's designed to be carried by a Tasen Soldier, who are about seven feet tall. Iji herself is [[AllThereInTheManual actually 6'3"]], but the weapon is still pretty big compared to her. The recoil from the [[{{BFG}} MPFB Devastator]] (essentially a triple-nuclear-rocket launcher) knocks her off her feet, unless she maxes out her Strength stat.
