* A highly overpowered disposable assault weapon forms a key part of the climax of WilliamGibson 's ''All Tomorrow's Parties''. It's hidden inside a wall, which has been plastered over.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', especially in the ''Tribunal'' expansion pack, a fun thing to do is get a large empty house make your own WallOfWeapons (more like floor and table of weapons) with all the unique weapons and armor that can be found in the dungeons. Might as well do something with all that junk.
** People do this in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]],'' and ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', too. There are even mods for all three games that make doing this easier.
*** It's needed in those last two games thanks to them using the Havoc physics engine. No I don't want my swords to drop realistically, I want them to line up in a row.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' lets you assemble your own wall of pointy, stabby, slashy, burny, shooty, and bludgeony in every house you own, thanks to plentiful weapon and shield racks, weapon cases, and armor stands. The Windhelm house takes the cake, though, as you have an entire large room dedicated to weapons and cases and stands you can use to show off all those artifacts you've acquired.
** The ''Hearthfire DLC'' allows you to construct your own custom homes. One potential wing is the armory, a moderately-sized room with five different armor statues, an array of weapon cases, and enough storage space to store every category of weapon in the game with room to spare.

** Following
the ''Tribunal'' expansion pack, a fun thing to do is get a large empty house make your own WallOfWeapons (more like floor and table of weapons) with all the unique weapons series' [[VideoGame3DLeap 3D Leap]], nearly every weapon and armor that can be found shop will arrange their items on walls and shelves in the dungeons.

** People do
this fashion. Justified, as they are on display to appeal to potential buyers. Whatever you do though, [[ShopliftAndDie don't try to pick one up]]...
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' allows players to create one of these
in wherever they choose to call home. Made even easier by {{Game Mod}}s which allow the placement of weapons ''directly'' on walls.
**
''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]],'' and ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', too. There are even Oblivion]]'' also allows for it. However, it is extremely difficult to do without the help of mods for all three games that make doing this easier.

Nudging an already placed item may send it flying across the room. Thankfully, mods which add dedicated weapon racks, armor mannequins, display cases, etc. are readily available online.

*** ''Skyrim'' outright incorporates some of ''Oblivion'''s mods, and in fact, some of the creators of those mods were ''hired'' by {{Creator/Bethesda}} to re-create them officially in ''Skyrim'' You can easily
assemble your own wall of pointy, stabby, slashy, burny, shooty, and bludgeony things in every house you own, thanks to plentiful weapon and shield racks, weapon cases, and armor stands.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', and ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', like their Bethesda ''Elder Scrolls'' sister series, also allow for this both in the vanilla games and with the help of {{Game Mod}}s.

* Most Assassins in the ''{{Discworld}}'' tend to this way of thinking. Well. as they point out, a working professional needs ''somewhere'' to keep their working tools. Johanna Smith-Rhodes, now in her marital home, [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11536013/5/Hyperemesis-gravidarum perhaps takes it further than most]]. And as of current writing, a member of her BadassFamily is [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12321109/4/Gap-Year-Adventures adding to the collection]] and perhaps necessitating opening a new room, as Johanna appears to be running out of walls.

* ''Film/GIJoeRetaliation''. Our heroes go to RetiredBadass Joe Coulton for help. He proceeds to open the cabinets of his kitchen to reveal an arsenal of weaponry (including grenades in the fruit bowl). Though that doesn't explain why we don't hear the cutlery crashing to the floor when the drawers are lifted up.

How do you show that someone is a GunNut, CrazyPrepared or just plain [[BadAss needs to be taken seriously?]] One simple and easy method is to show him with an ''enormous'' collection of weapons. This can range from a literal wall covered with weapons, to a pile of various weapons laid out on a table or floor, to a shot displaying an arsenal of guns and other weaponry on his person. Generally, any shot or scene displaying an enormous range of firepower, intended to show how well-armed or crazy a person or group is, fits under this trope. Note that there will rarely be any sign of sufficient quantities of ammo to load all of these marvelous toys.

** ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' has Sarah Connor with an underground cache of weapons hidden in the desert. Not that we need convincing she's a BadAss by this point in the film. John Connor mentions this as well--"One thing about my mom... she always plans ahead."
