* In the first ''Franchise/MassEffect'', every member of your party would carry a handgun, a shotgun, an assault-rifle and a sniper-rifle on them at all times (regardless of whether they had the actual talents for them). They're all "collapsible", but they still wind up with their backs utterly covered in guns. In [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 the sequel]], this has been dialed down noticeably--each NPC only carries 2 weapons from the list (now with one more weapon type, [=SMGs=]), while most [=PCs=] carry 3 or 4 weapons at most. But Soldier!Shepard actually takes it even further than before. Not only does s/he carry each of the above-mentioned weapon, s/he also carries a "Heavy Weapon" of choice, which can range from a [[PlayingWithFire Flamethrower]] or a [[ShockAndAwe Lightning-Bolt Gun]] to a [[NukeEm Portable Nuke Launcher]]. (Infiltrator!Shepard and Vanguard!Shepard can reach a similar level of ridiculousness if he/she picks an additional Weapon Specialization in the Collector Ship, instead of upgrading to a better Sniper Rifle/Shotgun. Soldier!Shepard just gets the choice between the aforementioned Sniper/Shotgun upgrades, and trading in an Assault-Rifle for a Heavy Machinegun.)

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', Pearl, Garnet, and Amethyst's [[FusionDance Fusion]], Alexandrite, has no apparent fusion weapon of her own, but can use ''all'' of her components weapons and any of their Fusion weapons, and use them all with equal amounts of skill.

* Once you've unlocked the maximum number of gun slots in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', you can have four guns hanging on your back and/or hip. These are just the ones in active use; you can swap them for other guns in your inventory basically at will unless you're in Fight For Your Life mode.

* Tested in the Video Game Special episode of ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'', when Adam and Jamie duplicate a level based on ''Videogame/{{Doom}}'' to see if a person could actually carry the amount of weaponry typically seen in a first person shooter. When Adam and Jamie attempted the course, it took them about twice as long when they had to carry each weapon as opposed to just dumping each gun as they found a new one. Then they asked a professional MMA fighter to try the course and he only took an extra three seconds to complete the course carrying all the weapons. The myth was declared "plausible" assuming that the individual is in extremely good physical condition.

But no worries. The character is bona-fide {{badass}}, [[ImprobableUseOfAWeapon so they manage to pull it off]]. [[OneManArmy They]] ''[[OneManArmy are]]'' [[VideoGame/VagrantStory the reinforcements]], and [[CrazyPrepared they've taken the necessary precautions]] for the upcoming fight - hauling as many weapons as they possibly can. You can bet your sorry behind that they're gonna use 'em all, too. They are often [[MultiMeleeMaster Multi-Melee Masters]] or [[MultiRangedMaster Multi-Ranged Masters]] ([[TakeAThirdOption or both]]).

* ''Anime/MacrossPlus'': While all Variable Fighters in the show are well-armed, Isamu Dyson's [[SuperPrototype super prototype]] YF-19 takes the cake with its loads of weapons, which include a robot-scaled assault rifle, hidden missile compartments, two gatling guns, anit-aircraft laser cannon, two more lasers in its wing roots, a physical shield with spare ammo clips for the rifle, and a [[DeflectorShields forcefield]] system that doubles as Falcon Punch when generated around the robot mode's fists. And that's when it's not using its various expansion packs that usually add further micro-missile launchers to the mix. Combined with its built-in stealth tech, it's enough to blow up a decent chunk of a planet's orbital defense system and enter the atmosphere undetected by posing as part of the debris it has just fashioned. Also, don't stand anywhere near its flight path, or the sheer air currents around it will rip you to shreds.

* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'': While Schlock is best-known for his plasma cannon, or for emergencies two plasma cannons, during the Random Access Memorabilia arc he carried something like six or seven weapons contained within his bloblike body, ranging from guns to an axe, and since he can sprout new limbs at will he can wield every last one of them simultaneously.

He technically doesn't ''walk'' however, being a BlobMonster.
