* 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.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'', 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.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'', 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.

* 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!"

* ''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.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'''s Guts avoids this by having a {{BFS}} with a visible scabbard. Later on he gets an even ''bigger'' {{BFS}} that almost seems to just hang on his back... were it not for a single link near the hilt, [[HandWave implying that it hangs off a hook]]. The hook is attached to a chain that hangs off his back, which is used to holster the sword. It's rarely visible, however, because of the cape he usually wears. Interestingly, in the Golden Age, he uses a strap that resembles a devil's tail.
