* Averted by ''TabletopGame/{{Ironclaw}}'', since there's not really anything in the way of magical equipment in the setting, and most players can easily start with decent equipment for their class. This is because in the first edition, equipment optimization was determined by weight, and in second edition, classes came with a core set of starting equipment (so a noble class character would always have a good-quality outfit and a rapier, for instance).

** Being based on the first ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' game, the webcomic justifies and parodies this by the king simply being a total {{jerkass}} and maniac who gives the party nothing ''to'' save his daughter and the only thing they get ''for'' saving her [[BrokenBridge is a bridge built]]... that he was making anyway and named after himself. Also, directly referenced in [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2001/08/01/episode-063-fighters-got-a-point-i-think/ this comic]], where it's apparently irrelevant as the weapons in the town [[SortingAlgorithmOfWeaponEffectiveness all sucks for some reason]].

* ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'' - Baam takes the test given by Headon with just a cleaver. Thankfully, Yuri [[DynamicEntry enters onto his face]] and she and Evan give him an A-grade pocket and the [[EmpathicWeapon Black March]], so this trope gets subverted. It's better that way, since the cleaver broke very quickly.

-->*** To clarify, unlike the Imperial Storm Troopers from Star Wars, the Canadian Storm Troopers were known as purveyors of utmost badassery, known for being able to get further into enemy territory and kick so much ass they made their enemies wet themselves.

* This was actually common up until the advent of standing armies. Many medieval or Roman era soldiers were expected to provide their own equipment, especially horses. In most cases it hardly fits the trope as knights were expected to pay all military expenses of themselves and their retainers, but it was the part of feudal contract. Not to mention that Roman equites and medieval knight were usually quite resourceful and more than often THEY were the authority responsible for adequate equipment, responsibility which was later transferred to centralized government.

* At the start of ''Film/EnemyAtTheGates'', the protagonist is one of the unlucky ones handed bullets (and ''only'' bullets) instead of a rifle before facing an enemy onslaught. "The One with the rifle shoots! The one with the bullets follows him! When the one with the rifle gets shot, the one with the bullets picks up the rifle and shoots!" The man in front of him doesn't need his for very long though. Actually a reversal of the real situation in Stalingrad at the time, where there were weapons aplenty[[note]]the weapons, unlike the soldiers, tended to survive the charges[[/note]], but not usually anywhere near enough ammunition for them.

* Justified in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' with John. He wasn't expecting to go on an adventure, so all he has is a mundane [[DropTheHammer claw hammer]], of the kind for typical projects such as fence repair.

* Lampshaded in the second episode (the RPG parody) of ''Anime/AbenobashiMahouShoutengai'' when king-Papan charges Sasshi and Arumi with defeating the dark lord, Aki-nee gives them a bag of gold, then the court turns around and goes back into the castle again.
