* 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."

* In ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'', the Fortress of Solitude has a ''hall'' of weapons. Sadly, as WonderWoman discovered, anyone capable of getting past [[SuperMan the owner]] isn't going to worry about a DeathRay or two.
