When people name their guns, or swords, or other conventional weapons, we have ICallItVera. This trope is when people name their "weapons." Or in plain English, their arms. This also sometimes happens with fists or any other body part that can be used in a fight. Usually occurs in the context of a threat, an actual fight, or just standing in front of a mirror admiring their physique (kissing optional).

Frequently TruthInTelevision. Has '''absolutely nothing to do with''' ADateWithRosiePalms. See ICallHimMrHappy for when people choose to name their more...intimate body parts.
