* Requisite pose for many WorldWarTwo or TheVietnamWar action-adventure novels where the cover features the protagonist armed with a belt-fed medium machine gun. If they were [[SightedGunsAreLowTech holding the weapon at the hip]], the novel just looked like a {{Rambo}} rip-off. Having it resting on the shoulder accompanied by {{permastubble}} and a [[ShellShockedVeteran war-weary expression]] made the hero look authentically BadAss.

* Chakaal the warrior-woman in early issues of ''ComicBook/GrooTheWanderer''. Since her neck is drawn quite thin and her sword is very thick it always surprised me that she didn't manage to decapitate herself accidentally.
