* The namesakes of ''MercenariesPlaygroundOfDestruction'' do seem to be using a type of harness for the weapons they carry, but on the other hand not only will it accept anything from a light submachinegun to an anti-tank missile launcher, they also appear to attach them with Velcro. The player models generally have visible clips and straps to hold the guns; at least they tried.

* In the first three ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'' games, none of the rifles and shotguns Nate picks up have slings on them. But it doesn't matter because they just stick to his back until he needs to use them. The fourth game in the series, "A Thief's End", is the exception, as the long guns do have slings in that game.

When you're an ActionAdventure Hero, lacking a HyperspaceArsenal can be somewhat problematic: carrying that {{BFS}} around is not only tiresome, it also takes away a free hand that would see much better use in [[LeParkour the complex acrobatics]] that are so common in your line of work. Luckily, TropeCo has the next best thing to offer: a form of {{Hand Wav|e}}ing that lets the BadAss just [[DoubleEntendre slide his pointy tool]] along his dorsum and have it held in place by some invisible force.

** Continued in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', except with most of the BadassLongcoat armors, where the guns [[TheyJustDidntCare clip into the back instead.]]

* Earlier ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' promotional animations showed Toa with obvious weapons as doing this, though it wasn't until 2004 that the actual sets regularly were designed to really do this (and that functionality was promptly discarded the next year anyway). The films instead opted to give everyone {{Hammerspace}}... which still involves reaching behind to their backs.

* Alexander Carter's sword from ''Webcomic/TheDreamlandChronicles'': no sheath, it really does just stick to the back of his armor. [[JustifyingEdit Justified]]: "Cool! A magnet!"

* A talking dog in ''WebAnimation/{{asdfmovie}}''''6'' carries a knife sticking on his side. [[ImplausibleDeniability And he still has the gall to say he doesn't have a knife]].

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Averted by Guts, who wears his sword across his back but has an actual suspension mechanism to hold it there. His early {{BFS}} has a flexible leather sheath that only holds the blade at the point, middle, and base, and which flaps behind him like a pointed devil's tail while his sword is drawn. His even larger {{BFS}} the Dragon Slayer has no scabbard, but instead is held up by a ring on the hilt that engages a hook on Guts' baldric. It is kept from swaying by a leather strap on a chain that wraps around the opposite side. When he draws his sword, all he needs to do is release the security chain and lift the sword clear of the hook.
