* Many ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' giant robots are quite like this, though there are a few which have only a few weapons; then again, many ''Rifts'' robots have multiple crew. Powered armour suits, such as the Glitter Boy Killer, can seriously bristle with weapons; one wonders how they could possibly fit worthwhile weapons and ammo storage onto them, let alone how the pilot manages them all in a fight. Full-conversion [[HollywoodCyborg 'borg]], being nearly as big as a powered armour unit, can also have several weapons installed, each; the standard Manhunter alone is not only most commonly sold with a railgun, but is also armed with min-missiles on the back, has energy weapons concealed in the legs... The cyborg creation options allow for all manner of weapons to be installed on your very body.
* ''1001 Science Fiction Weapons'' for D20 Modern Future has two weapons pods full of weapons, which fit over your forearm; the older model has a laser, shotgun, grenades, tangler, rockets and flamer, albeit with small payloads, and looks more like the one in ''Film/TheFifthElement''. The newer type has only one variable barrel, but can fire several different kinds of energy weapon blasts.

* 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.]]

* In [[TheSpiritThief The Legend of Eli Monpress]], Josef Liechten is literally said to carry enough weapons to outfit a small armoury. This leads to a few [[ExtendedDisarming Extended Disarming]] scenes as well.

* The ''Videogame/SyphonFilter'' series originally combined this with HyperspaceArsenal for the first three games in the series as the player had absolutely no limit on the number of weapons they could carry. In Omega strain they tried scaling it back to be more realistic but your character still carries: one long gun slung across your back, an auxiliary gun slung across your torso, two pistols (after completing a specific mission), grenades, a melee weapon and whatever mission specific gear you get issued.

* ''Anime/GundamBuildFighters'' manages to get in on this with the [[http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/PPMS-18E_K%C3%A4mpfer_Amazing Kampfer Amazing]], which is [[LightningBruiser fast, powerful, tough, and well armed]], especially relative to its [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080WarInThePocket source material]]. The Kampfer Amazing carries a ludicrous number of weapons, especially for what is supposed to be a ''model'' of a giant robot. It boasts dual kukris, superheated striking plates in its arms and legs, dual beam sabers, dual pistols, dual beam rifles, dual ''sniper'' rifles, dual beam machine guns, a gatling gun, and a quad-barrel rocket launcher. Oh, and it carries all these weapons in four huge 'weapon binders' that attach to its body, so HammerSpace is flatly averted--it literally carries all those weapons on itself in its most prominent match. It's almost obscene.

** 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.
