* Altaïr in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedI'' is a master of several weapons, including a sword, a dagger, throwing knives, and a hidden blade. Ezio in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'' takes it a step further by carrying a second hidden blade (potentially filled with poison) and a gun. He also apparently can use any weapon he can find with equal effectiveness, from a dagger to a giant axe or a spear. In ''Brotherhood'', he also gets a crossbow and can [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks throw heavy weapons]] with deadly accuracy. Finally, ''Revelations'' gives Ezio up to 15 bombs of different types and configurations. And people wonder why guards get suspicious of a guy wearing a hood and carrying an arsenal on his person. He also has no trouble using Creator/LeonardoDaVinci's inventions (tank, bomber, boat-mounted artillery, machine gun) without even reading the manual.

** The tradition continues in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIV'', where a fully upgraded Edward Kenway carries two swords, the traditional concealed blades of the assassins, four pistols, a dartgun with two different kinds of poisoned darts, rope darts and smoke bombs. This trope could also arguably be added to his ship the Jackdaw which can be upgraded with so many weapons systems that it easily outguns ships that are many times its size.

This trope could also arguably be added to his ship the Jackdaw which can be upgraded with so many weapons systems that it easily outguns ships that are many times its size. ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRogue'' uses a similar loadout, letting Shay Cormac brandish a sword and dagger, two pistols, the rope darts and smoke bombs, and an air rifle with a grenade launcher in addition to the hidden blades.
** The series starts downplaying the trope in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedUnity'', with Arno being limited to a single weapon (sword, spear, or axe) and a single pistol (due to being in an era where guns can carry more than one shot each), or else a single rifle, blunderbuss, or guillotine gun (all of which function for both close combat and gunfire), and a single hidden blade with a retractable crossbow function. The Frye twins of ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedSyndicate'' avert the trope entirely, as wearing weapons has gone from common practice to illegality, and they now fight with easily-concealable knuckles, staves, and kukris.
** When ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedOrigins'' backpedals on the temporal scale, the trope comes back as well; a fully-upgraded Bayek can carry two melee weapons (which, if you opt for paired blades, means ''four'' swords), two bows, a shield, a pouch of smoke bombs, a pouch of poisoned throwing knives, the (chronologically) '''first''' hidden blade, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and a torch]].

* Invoked fro ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' where the developers wanted to recreate how Link appeared in his artwork from the very first game carrying every possible item. In this game, Link can be seen with a sword, a shield, a bow and quiver of arrows, and his Sheikah Slate.

* In ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'', as a MythologyGag to ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII''[='s=] [[LoveItOrHateIt unique]] experience-gaining system, Firion (pictured above) wields virtually ''every'' equippable weapon from that game ([[CoolSword a sword]], [[KnifeNut knives]], [[ArcherArchetype a bow & arrow]], [[AnAxeToGrind an axe]], [[BladeOnAStick a lance]], [[MagicWand a spellcasting rod]], and [[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe a shield]]) in honor of his [[LaResistance crew]]. Unlike the other heroes, [[HyperspaceArsenal who summon and disperse their weapons at will]], Firion decides to be a man and wear 'em all at once. [[MightyGlacier He's the slowest of the Warriors of Cosmos]], [[JustifiedTrope and understandably so]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'', when Kraven first confronts Spider-man he attacks with a bow and arrow. When that doesn't work he pulls out a pair of huge knives. When those doesn't work he pulls out a boomerange, then bolos, a blow dart, a spear, and finally, his bare hands.

* The page quote, from ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', is in reference to a late-game Bounty Hunter PlayerCharacter. To give some perspective, by this point the player has acquired: Their trusty blaster pistol, a secondary pistol/power generator/personal shield generator, a BladeBelowTheShoulder, a flamethrower, a carbonite projector, a dart shooter, rocket boots, a rocket pack, rockets that shoot ''from'' the rocket pack with various payloads and destructive yields, rocket gauntlets (also useful for punching), and various other little, specialist devices. So yes, [[NotHyperbole everything you wear CAN kill someone.]]

** Hound from the fourth movie has an assault rifle, two shotguns, two large handguns, two smaller pistols, at least three grenades, and a combat knife. [[spoiler:Plus his bullet cigar, which he can and does fire.]] To top it all off, he wields a triple-minigun (as in ''three six-barreled miniguns stacked together'')) as his main weapon.
