* ''{{Pathfinder}}'', the spiritual successor of Dungeons and Dragon's 3.5 edition, lampshades the above while taking it one step further. A gunslinger archetype, the Bolt Ace, of sufficient level gains an ability called Inexplicable Reload - as long as they have [[ManaMeter at least one point of Grit,]] their crossbow is always considered loaded and ready to fire at the beginning of his or her turn thanks to unconscious muscle memory making the action essentially automatic. Additionally, this grants further benefit to the Rapid Reload feat, reducing the reload time for a crossbow, normally a free action, [[UpToEleven to even less than that.]]

* In one episode of ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' Revy reloads one of her pistols by loading a magazine into it using her teeth. While still firing at her opponents with the other one. Now that is badass.

* Sato from ''Manga/{{Ajin}}'': During a battle with the [[SWATTeam Special Assault Team]], [[MagnificentBastard Sato]] makes use of "quickloader" tubes to rapidly reload his pump-action shotgun.




to:

* ''Film/TheDarkTower'': Roland pulls off some very impressive reloads with his revolvers, including rapidly dropping individual bullets into a spinning cylinder, trailing his open cylinders along his belt as he pushes bullets into the chambers with his thumbs, using speedloader rigs on his belt to reload quickly, and even catching two moon clips in mid air with both of his guns cylinders before quickly opening fire.

** The Spy uses both hands to reload his revolver, which is fine... unless he has also activated the Invis Watch on his left wrist (which also appears on-screen), making him appear to have three hands. Additionally, when he reloads some of his unlockable revolvers, it has--say it with us--the same oversight as the Lugermorph; he doesn't put any bullets in the barrel, nor do any bullets eject.
*** And on one revolver, the Enforcer, the Spy's ''left hand'' disappears instead of the bullets, which levitate into and out of the chambers of their own accord.

* Rushuna Tendou from ''Anime/{{Grenadier}}'' stores extra bullets in her [[VictoriasSecretCompartment considerable cleavage]] - when she needs to reload, she [[{{Gainaxing}} somehow manages to eject the exact number of bullets from there]] and then scoops them out of the air with her revolver. While ''[[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning spinning]]''! And she isn't the only character able to do that!
** While spinning ''and'' performing GunKata to dodge bullets. As in forty villains, all firing at her with modern rifles.

** The ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' mod ''Wasteland'', based off of post-apocalypse games (particularly ''Fallout''), allowed mix-and-match pistols. The most memorable reload animation was that of the Colts akimbo: ejecting both magazines, and then sequentially tossing the guns up in the air to have a free hand for the new magazines.

*** The sequel mod ''The Wastes'' toned the akimbo combinations down a bit, but empty dual wielded pistols would reload by tossing two fresh magazines into the air, flipping the guns over and catching the fresh mags in each gun's empty magazine well.

Added DiffLines:

** Mal'Damba's weapon is a [[ImprobableWeaponUser cobra that spits venom and shoots out healing eye-lasers]]. He "reloads" it by throwing it in front of him (which stuns) and then a new one slithers up along his arm.

* Zhin from ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}}'' uses a FlamingSword filled with burning oil, which he flings at his enemies with each sword swing. When his sword runs out of oil, he refuels it by pouring more oil onto it, reigniting the flames.
