* '''[[CoolSword Swords]]''': [[HeroesPreferSwords The heroic lead]] usually winds up wielding the iconic broadsword in the west. The katana often takes its place in the east. Meanwhile, the big two-handed blades, if they're not in the hands of the hero, usually go to TheBigGuy. If they're trying ''way'' too hard to be cool, they'll use [[DualWielding two]] swords, or a [[{{BFS}} single really big one]].

Added DiffLines:

** '''[[{{BFS}} Big Freaking Sword]]''': Typically found in the hands of large intimidating characters, like giants or [[SmashMook brutish types]]. A common subversion is to have them appear in the hands of someone who doesn't look like they could even pick it up as a hint that this person is much stronger than they look.
** '''DualWielding''': Almost always appears in the hands of roguish characters.

%%* ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}, who may or may not be [[MarvelComics Marvel's]] expy of [[DCComics DC's]] ComicBook/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.

** '''{{Spell Book}}s''': Wizards who carry spell books tend to look intellectual and scholarly. They can range from dorky apprentices who are still getting used to basic spells to older, wise wizards who probably wrote the books themselves (usually, the larger and thicker the book is, the better). Also, a common BigBad tool.

%%* In the ''BattleCircle'' trilogy by PiersAnthony, the main culture is based on {{Proud Warrior Race Guy}}s; and the society is based around ritual combat in the titular Circle, with warriors typically specializing in one of 7 common weapons (although a few less common ones show up occasionally). All men are known by their signature weapons, which they use as a title, eg. Var the Sword, Kal the Club. A few rare individuals are proficient with more than one, which they add to their title.

** [[TheObiWan Gandalf]]: A wizard, he wields a [[MagicWand Staff]], natch, but pairs it with a broadsword (Glamdring), establishing him as a more down-to-earth wizard-of-the-people than Saruman in his ivory tower.

%%* {{BIONICLE}} has frequently used this trope. It is also important to note that many of the weapons used by Toa characters are often not really used for combat, which is why they are referred to as "tools" rather than weapons. They are used as focuses for their elemental powers to make them easier to control.
