* '''[[KnifeNut Knives]]''': Ninjas and assassins go for the lightest and smallest tools.

A knife wielder is usually [[CombatPragmatist swift, fierce and pragmatic, going for a quick kill instead of a lengthy battle.]] Many knife-users like [[WolverineClaws attaching them to their hands like animal claws]]. Due to being often light and easy to handle, knives, daggers and such are often the favourite defense weapon for women.

%%* ''Roleplay/RubyQuest''; One of the fanarts featured Ace with some sort of MacGyver'd cane/hook/spear thing, which actually made it into the game. The main characters have weapons of choice themselves: Ruby has a [[IncrediblyLamePun mean left hook]], while Tom prefers a crowbar, which was later swapped for a [[ImprovisedWeapon BLUDGEONY CANESHOVEL]].

** In the PlayStationPortable UpdatedRerelease, the new Heroine wields [[BladeOnAStick naginatas]], presumably due to their historical association with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onna_bugeisha women and famous female samurai]] in Japan. The Hero, though, is now restricted to one-handed swords, and Mitsuru's choice is specifically referred to as "rapiers."

Of course, any ''true'' Troper's Weapon of Choice would have to be a [[{{BFG}} Big Freakin']] [[GatlingGood Gatling]] [[SawedOffShotgun Shotgun]] that can be {{Dual Wield|ing}}ed with a [[BifurcatedWeapon Detachable]] [[ChainsawGood Chain-Bladed]] [[LaserBlade Laser]] {{Katana|sAreJustBetter}}. Anything else just pales in comparison, save for the [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Giga Drill Breaker]]. If there is a FiveManBand, the weapons will probably be HeroesPreferSwords, BladeOnAStick, LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe, SimpleStaff, and/or MagicWand. For non-weapon examples, see TellMeHowYouFight. Contrast ChoiceOfTwoWeapons. See also GoodWeaponEvilWeapon. See WeaponJr for when someone's shown with a weapon of choice before they've chosen it. For an entire culture's Weapon Of Choice, see NationalWeapon.

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.
