Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', the weapon of choice for the Commonwealth Minutemen is, fittingly enough given their historical inspiration, the Laser Musket, a jury-rigged laser assembly from a standard Laser Rifle mounted on a wooden musket frame and "loaded" with a hand-crank. Despite the weapon's appearance eliciting "WhatAPieceOfJunk" remarks, it's deceptively powerful as it can be charged multiple times to produce a single very powerful shot.

* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': Asuka -the blood-thirsty proud warrior- wields an chain-axe and Rei -the mentally unstable anti-hero- uses a giant machete. Subverting the trope, Shinji uses a staff, despite of being TheLeader and an AntiHero.

%%* {{Hawkeye}}, who may or may not be [[MarvelComics Marvel's]] expy of [[DCComics DC's]] GreenArrow, is likewise a hotshot archer whose real weapon isn't the bow so much as the bag of tricks he fires from it. He's shown to have the same accuracy hand-throwing his arsenal of arrowheads or firing them from improvised launchers.

** Revolver Ocelot favours revolvers as he styles himself as a modern cowboy, he even enjoys the dangerous process of reloading a revolver in the middle of a fight. The player knows something is up when he ditches his signature guns in the 4th game.


Added DiffLines:

*** Additionally, The Boss was formerly America's greatest hero and fittingly she carries the Patriot which was a heavily modified M-16.

Added DiffLines:

* In Mark Hodder's ''Burton and Swinburne'' stories, Sir Richard Burton favours a sword cane as befitting a weapon for someone who's a master swordsman and of at least upper middle class status. Burton especially likes using one sword cane in particular. This is a cane with a panther head top, which has a custom-made blade to give it unusually good balance. Besides its high quality, Burton favours it as a trophy from a defeated foe (as an explorer and scholar, he is a devoted CollectorOfTheStrange).

** Qrow, who trained Ruby in how to use Crescent Rose, uses a scythe similar to hers but with the addition of a shotgun form, and a greatword as an example of his possessing much greater expierience and skill than his still-in-training niece.
** Winter Shcnee, Weiss's older sister uses a saber very similar to Myrtenaster, but without the added feature of expensive Dust, something she makes up for with greater skill in close combat and control of her Semblance, a sign that she has learned to survive without the aid of their wealthy father, or his company. This is a milestone Weiss is still working towards.
** General James Ironwood, leader of the Atlas Military is perhaps the only character to use a non-descript [[HandCannon (but very powerful)]] handgun, [[BoringButPractical with no apparent bells or whistles]], reflecting the practical, no-nonsense attitude expected of a highly ranked military officer.
** Crimelord Roman Torchwick wields Melodic Cudgel, a pimp-cane with a hidden gun in the neck. It fits with the stylish and flamboyant image he seems to prefer, but it's use as a hidden weapon goes hand in hand with his underhanded and cheating nature.

** Lie Ren uses a pair of green guns with collapsible curved blades under the barrels called StormFlower. The relatively simple and understated design (for {{RWBY}} at least) reflect his reliable personality.

** Reni, the German wünderkinden, uses a lance.
** The exceptions are European aristocrats Iris and Orihime, neither of whom carry weapons on their person (Iris being far too gentle to, anyways).
