[-[[caption-width-right:300:8 weapon types: [[CoolSword sword]], [[AnAxeToGrind axe]], [[BladeOnAStick spear]], [[ArcherArchetype bow]], [[KnifeNut daggers]], [[MagicWand staff]], [[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe shield]], and [[GoodOldFisticuffs his own two hands]].]]-]

In a lifetime, most are only skilled enough to properly use [[WeaponOfChoice one weapon]], let alone [[DualWielding two]].

And there's ''this'' guy.

He strolls into danger at a leisurely pace... and strapped to his back are enough weapons to make the U.S. military jealous. He doesn't even seem to have some [[BagOfHolding magical satchel that he can just dump his weapons into for storage.]] [[RealityEnsues Surely the weight must be doing a number on his back, right?]]

But no worries. The character is bona-fide {{badass}}, [[ImprobableUseOfAWeapon so they manage to pull it off]]. [[OneManArmy They]] ''[[OneManArmy are]]'' [[VagrantStory the reinforcements]], and they've taken the necessary precautions for the upcoming fight; hauling as many weapons as they possibly can. You can bet your sorry behind that they're gonna use 'em all too. They are often {{Multi Melee Master}}s or {{Multi Ranged Master}}s ([[TakeAThirdOption or both]]).

Compare MoreDakka, which is most likely the result when the character is packing heat. If so, expect them to be wearing quite a few {{Badass Bandolier}}s if their ammo supply isn't [[BottomlessMagazines unlimited]].

Generally goes hand-in-hand with a WallOfWeapons.

Compare {{Hammerspace}}, HyperspaceArsenal, ExtendedDisarming, ChoiceOfTwoWeapons.

* Callahan from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwEkQ0gAk_g Sprint's "Epic Renegade Cop"]] commercial [[ExtendedDisarming was apparently armed]] with three handguns, an assault rifle, several grenades, and a rocket launcher.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:{{Anime and Manga]]
* A {{mecha|Show}} example comes from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'' in the form of the [[http://www.gundamofficial.com/worlds/ce/seed/mechanics/ms_calamity.html GAT-X131 Calamity Gundam.]]
** The Freedom, Justice, and Providence Gundams are no better. In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'', the Destiny and the Legend are equally heavily armed, and the Freedom and Justice upgrade into the even better equipped Strike Freedom and Infinite Justice.
* [[OlderThanYouThink And before that]], ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing's'' '''[[MeaningfulName Heavyarms]]'''. [[http://www.gundamofficial.com/www_ac/gw/mecha/mecha_gundam_heavy.html Its original configuration]] and its MidSeasonUpgrade (the Heavyarms Kai) weren't ''too'' {{egregious}}, with only a [[GatlingGood gatling gun]]-[[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe shield]] combo on its left arm and [[KnifeNut an army knife]] [[BladeBelowTheShoulder on its right]] (the rest of the missiles, vulcans, and cannons were stored inside Heavyarms; during Heero's duel with [[TheRival Zechs]], Trowa also outfitted the left arm with a [[LaserBlade beam saber]]), ''[[TheMovie Endless Waltz]]''[='s=] redesign gives the Gundam ''[[DualWielding two]]'' Double Barrel Beam Gatlings and adds several more missile packs on its legs. Couple this with Trowa's acrobatic prowess as a circus performer transferring over to his Gundam and most of Trowa's defeats can be attributed to [[ThePlotDemandedThisIndex the plot alone]].
** And if you think that's ridiculous, [[AllThereInTheManual a guidebook for the series]] called ''[[http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/New_Mobile_Report_Gundam_Wing_Perfect_Album_Bom-Bom_Comic New Mobile Report Gundam Wing Perfect Album]]'' features what-if designs based off of the original five Gundams. [[http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/XXXG-01DB_Gundam_Crazy_Beast Gundam Crazy Beast]] (Deathscythe) and [[http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/Gundam_Sky-High_Arms Gundam Sky-High Arms]] (Heavyarms) are pretty decked out, but [[http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/Gundam_Super-Armed_Tank Gundam Super-Armed Tank]] (another Heavyarms variant) is what happens when you put Heavyarms and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Guntank]] in a blender and set it to "'''[[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill OVERKILL]]'''".
* To a much smaller extent, ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00''. When fully equipped, the Exia has two {{BFG}}s, a third BFG attached to it's forearm, a one-handed beam rifle attached to the same forearm, as well as half a dozen [[LaserBlade beam sabers]] it uses as ''throwing knives''. It is called the Seven Sword Gundam for a reason. And that's not counting the various weapons of the [[MetaMecha GN Arms]].
* And from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn'' we have the Full Armor Unicorn that has weapons stuffed on practically every available surface, it even have some weapons stacked on the other weapons.
* In ''{{Trigun}}'', Nicholas Wolfwood carries around an arsenal of weapons in [[CreepyCoolCrosses a giant metal cross]].
** Then there's Meryl Stryfe, who normally walks around with a cape that conceals [[MoreDakka 50 single-shot derringers]].
* ''Manga/BlackLagoon'''s Roberta carries a gatling gun briefcase, shotgun disguised as an umbrella, at least one knife, and a crapload of grenades.
** Similarly, Fabiola has a pair of automatic pistols which fire buckshot hidden in her sleeves, knives in the soles of her shoes, and a collapsible grenade launcher hidden in her dress.
* Don Krieg from ''Manga/OnePiece'' has a lot of hidden weaponry, including pistols, guns hidden in the armor, a diamond knuckleduster, a morningstar, a flamethrower, a spike-shooting shield, a giant exploding spear, several minibombs and a bombshells full of shurikens and poisonous gas.
* The assassin Tongpu in the ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' episode "Pierrot le Fou". When he first faces off against Spike he spreads his coat to reveal a huge number of weapons hanging inside it.
* This is Mousse's whole shtick in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', along with being an improbable weapons user. In fact, during a fight with another walking armory, he notes that the other guy is sticking to using his 49th sword, meaning he ran out of weapons. Mouse then proceeds to use a barrage of even more weapons to win.
* In the second half of Episode 1 of ''Anime/FullMetalPanicFumoffu''. Sousuke Sagara was told to disarm during a hostage situation. It started off normally, a couple of pistols, a knife, some frag grenades. Scene cuts to the whole mess of bad guys smirking and grinning at his bad luck and upcoming beating. As things clunked and clanked to the floor though, their expressions shifted first to puzzlement, then surprise, finally settling on horror. When the scene cut back to Sousuke, he's standing beside a literal truckload of various rifles and rocket launchers. Might have even been an artillery piece in there, it was hard to tell.
%%* In {{Digimon}}, we have [[http://wikimon.net/images/c/ca/Gundramon_collectors_card.jpg Gundramon]]. Please add context before un-commenting.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Franchise/{{Batman}} is an obvious example. They're often more utilities than weapons in the comics, but the movies and video games in particular show off an impressive number of traps and gadgets to supplement badguy nabbing.
** This applies to the entire Bat Family.
* ComicBook/{{Cable}} [[SuperHeroPackingHeat tends to]] like this trope. The bulk of his telepathic and telekinetic powers are used to keep his [[BodyHorror techno-organic virus]] at bay. His ''[[BlessedWithSuck real]]'' superpower might as well be "[[BadassNormal carrying lots of firearms]] and [[RequiredSecondaryPowers somehow being able to keep his spine intact]]". Oh, and [[RobLiefeld pouches]]. [[AuthorAppeal Sweet]], [[OverlyLongGag delicious]] [[NeverLiveItDown pouches]].
** Fellow Rob Liefeld creation and long-term partner {{Deadpool}} is similarly festooned. He's got swords, guns, grenades, shurikens, and so on in pouches.
** In one 90s CrisisCrossover, Cable is depicted carrying half a dozen guns at once. They're each bigger than he is. And Cable is a very large man.
** It could be explained as being lifted by his [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]].
* Comicbook/WarMachine from the ''IronMan'' comics is a PoweredArmor version of this trope (as especially seen in the [[Film/IronMan film version]]). Note that the regular Iron Man armor is already stuffed with miniaturized weapons; the War Machine suit is overflowing with them...and some of them are not so miniaturized; the iconic feature of War Machine is [[GatlingGood a shoulder-mounted Gatling gun]]. Many versions of the War Machine armor also have a second turret on the other shoulder with a multiple missile launcher on it.
** The same is also true of his incarnation from ''IronManArmoredAdventures'', if not moreso.
* Marvel's Comicbook/{{Ares}} was one of these when starting out. Once he heard [[PapaWolf his son got kidnapped]] he opened a wardrobe in his house and pulled out everything from [[StuffBlowingUp bazookas]] to [[KingArthur Excalibur itself]]. Though nowadays he's gone back to his [[AnAxeToGrind big axe]].
* At one point, {{Hawkman}} carries a bunch of weapons on him.
* ThePunisher is often described as having more guns than some small nations.
* 2 DC Comics characters called "The Arsenal", The DarkerAndEdgier former GreenArrow sidekick and the giant, weapon filled robot that fought the DoomPatrol.
* DC AntVillain / AntiHero ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}} tends to never have less than two weapons on him at any time. Most commonly he's only shown using either his CoolSword [[SwordAndGun pistol]], but it's not unusual for Deathstroke to be carrying pistols, assault rifles, submachine guns, sniper rifles, etc... all at the same time.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* Anyone else remember the infamous scene from ''Film/TheMatrix''? [[WallOfWeapons "Guns. Lots of guns."]]
-->'''Security guard:''' ''...holy shit.''
* Characters in Creator/JohnWoo movies are known for bringing duffel bags or other transportables full of guns to major gunfights, such as Ah Jong and Inspector Li Ying from ''Film/TheKiller''[='s=] church shootout, and the bad guys from ''Film/HardBoiled''[='s=] tea house shootout. This is mainly because characters in John Woo movies tend to [[ThrowAwayGuns throw their guns away]] instead of reloading.
* Film/{{Machete}} is this, [[Administrivia/TropesAreFlexible but with]] [[MacheteMayhem machetes]] and [[KnifeNut knives]] instead of guns.
* In the film ''Film/ImGonnaGitYouSucka'', one character has a LockAndLoadMontage where he puts nearly a dozen different guns and pistols on his person. "You can never have enough guns!" he says. Shortly afterwards, he trips, [[PlayedForLaughs setting off all the guns and putting him out of commission]].
* In ''[[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles TMNT]]'' (the 2007 movie), Leonardo ends up tangling with one of Max Winter's Stone General siblings and is sent flying into a stand of various ancient weapons. When he re-emerges, Leo's seen with multiple swords (including a {{BFS}}) strapped to his back in addition to his trademark [[DualWielding twin]] [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana]] and tells his foe, "[[LetsGetDangerous Come to daddy.]]" He loses the extra weapons as the fight goes on, though.
* In ''Film/MadMaxBeyondThunderdome'', Max is ordered to disarm upon entering a secure area and it [[ExtendedDisarming takes a full minute for him to drop all his weapons]]. It turns out the one thing he brought in with him, a flyswatter, was itself a concealed weapon (an iron rod inside the handle).
* Nicholas Angel from ''HotFuzz'' during the street shootout. [[PreAssKickingOneLiner "Morning."]]
* ''TheBoondockSaints'' has Il Duce, one guy with six guns, who battles the [=McManus=] brothers and Rocco.
* In the [[Film/{{Transformers}} films]], [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Optimus Prime]] takes this to extremes. He already has 2 rifles, 2 swords, and 2 hooks built-in in the first two films, but in the 3rd movie, he has all of that ''plus'' a trailer filled with gattling guns for each arm, missle packs, an axe, a shield, more swords (handheld this time), a flight pack, and more stuff we don't even get a close look at. This is possibly the most armed Transformer ever.
** He also has brass knuckles build-in.
** Hound from the fourth movie has a large triple-barreled minigun as his primary weapon (and by "triple-barreled", we mean ''three separate six barreled miniguns stacked together''), an assault rifle, two shotguns, two large handguns, two smaller pistols, at least three grenades, and a combat knife. [[spoiler: Plus his bullet cigar, which he can and does fire.]]
* By the end of ''Truth or Dare?: A Critical Madness'', the killer is packing a handgun, a machine gun, knives, a machete, a chainsaw, a spiked club, and a pair of nuchuks.
* Parodied in ''LoadedWeapon1'' where Colt arms up with as many guns as he can. The full amount of equipment overloads him and he falls down.
* ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'': the Winter Soldier typically has a gun in his hands, a gun strapped to his back, maybe two, at least one gun at the belt, 3 pistols strapped to his thighs, a worrying number of knives, and a bionic arm that can bend steel. [[spoiler:Given his enhancements, in a way, even his body is a weapon.]]
* The ''Franchise/StarWars'' films feature father and son/clone, Jango and Boba Fett with their iconic battle armour designs. Over the course of the films they appear in, each of them is armed with more than one firearm or rifle at a time, an equipment belt, a pair of wrist gauntlets loaded with missiles, blasters, flamethrowers, grapples/whips, dart launchers, and retractible blades, hidden sashes on their legs containing more weapons, a pair of dart launchers located in their ''kneepads'' and of course, a jetpack equipped with projectile rockets. And they're among the few who are able to use their weapons and skills to give Jedi a hard time in a fight. Of course, customisation aside, most of this tends to be ''basic'' equipment for [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Mandalorians]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* In ''[[Literature/{{Redwall}} Rakkety Tam]]'', one of the squirrels and a vole raid the vermin's encampment, coming back with more weapons than they can wield correctly, making about how to defeat the enemy just by falling over.
* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}''
** In ''Discworld/{{Pyramids}}'', Teppic's LockAndLoadMontage ends with him falling over from the weight.
** In another book, Nobby raids an armory, trying to come out with, among others, [[ImpossiblyCoolWeapon a flamethrower on wheels]]. But Carrot makes him put it back.
* In the ''Literature/{{Dragaera}}'' novels, Vlad Taltos and other Jhereg assassins carry a wide variety of weapons hidden about their persons. Vlad carries a sword, a magical chain, a garrote and selection of knives.
* Butler from ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'' provided the former page quote (see the Quotes section).
* War in ''Literature/TheHeritageOfShannara'' and Risca in ''Literature/FirstKingOfShannara''. Its justified in both cases, as the former is a [[TheFourHorsemenOfTheApocalypse Horseman of the Apocalypse]] and comes armed accordingly, while the latter is a [[MagicKnight Warrior Druid]] and channels his magic through his weaponry.
* [[BadassNormal Chase]] in ''TheSwordOfTruth'' has been described to carry enough weapons for a small army. When asked if he'll really need all of them, he answers "I know that if I leave any behind, I will". That being said he's willing to lend a long knife to an unarmed woman traveling with him.
* In {{Cryptonomicon}} Bobby Shaftoe is on a plane musing that the pilots are "fucking armed to the teeth. Like they were expecting to have to kill twenty or thirty people on their way from the airplane to the latrine and back". This is followed by a detailed description of the various weapons he has to remove from his own person to get comfortable enough to get some sleep.
* In one of {{Peter David}}'s ''StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' novels, a diplomatic contingent from the Klingons come aboard, and ''every one'' of them is carrying at least a dozen weapons. Not really shocking, we're dealing with the ProudWarriorRace where AsskickingEqualsAuthority. Then someone gets the idea to ask Worf how many weapons he has on him - thirteen. This on a Starfleet uniform with no pockets and few hiding spots. A later scene (where he gets "acquainted" with one of the Klingon female diplomats) reveals that he only left twelve on the floor during sex.
* The Howlers in ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' are heavily armed (Even described by Jake as "walking arsenals") beings created by [[EldritchAbomination Crayak]] for the purpose of destroying sentient life.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* A few incarnations of the [[http://powerrangers.wikia.com/wiki/Battlizer Battlizer]] (a MidSeasonUpgrade SuperMode exclusively for the Red Ranger) from ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' could qualify. [[note]]The Battlizer is [[MerchandiseDriven an American concept]], and thus did not originally exist in ''Franchise/SuperSentai''. The only exception is [[Series/PowerRangersSPD Jack Landor's]] Battlizer being adapted into ''Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger'' for Banban "Ban" Akaza/[=DekaRed=] (Jack's Japanese equivalent), but the only common element was appearance.[[/note]]
* Series/KamenRiderGaim's [[SuperMode ultimate form]], Kiwami Arms, has this as its gimmick; while it lacks a unique weapon of its own, it can summon practically every other weapon seen in the show. [[note]]The execptions are [[MiniMecha Suika Arms]]' giant blades and anything exclusive to the movies.[[/note]] On top of that, it also lets Gaim engage in DualWielding to a ludicrous extent: [[JoustingLance Lance]] and [[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe shield]]? Sure! Dual-wield [[BladeOnAStick spears]]? Why not? [[SerialEscalation Dual-wield]] [[TheStraightAndArrowPath bows]]? Go for it!
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* The TropeNamer is a perk from ''{{GURPS}}'' that lets a character avoid the issue of where and how he carries all of his guns, no matter how many he has or how big they are.
* In the ''{{Champions}}'' setting ''Dark Champions'', the vigilante superhero Harbinger of Justice uses a HyperspaceArsenal to store his many weapons.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' has a claim to this trope via cyberware and drones. A character can install numerous holsters or integral weapons into their person, allowing a character to, at any moment, pull a heavy caliber pistol out of their arse.
** That last gets used as an example because one character completely derailed a GM's story by pulling a gun out of his ass to shoot the guy holding him hostage. GM was a good sport about it, though.
* Most melee fighters in ''DungeonsAndDragons'' 3rd and 3.5 edition. Most mid-level fighters are liable to carry around the following: A) A [[GameBreaker spiked chain]]. You gotta have a spiked chain. Alternatively, some other big two-handed sword/axe for a main weapon. B) A secondary two-handed or one-handed weapon in case the first is disarmed/sundered, commonly of a special material (see G). Shield may be included. C) A mace to deal with skeletal undead. D) A dagger/short sword/handaxe for grappling (or both). E) If not covered under D, a handaxe for chopping wood and hacking down doors. F) A bow for those rare moments when an enemy is beyond sword range. G) Any number of weapons/arrows with obscure special materials/enchantments to get around some of the more exotic damage reductions, as long as these do not overlap with weapons A-F. These include but are not limited to: [[{{Unobtanium}} Adamantium]], cold iron, silvered, [[CharacterAligment aligned]], and/or dealing blunt, slashing or piercing damage (in any given combinations).
* The ''[[TabletopGame/YuGiOh Yu-Gi-Oh!]]'' TCG: [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Sword_Hunter Sword Hunter]], for starters.
* The CortexSystem game DemonHunters has an advantage with this name. It allows a character to draw an extra weapon or item that they didn't previously have from somewhere about their person.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', as if the image for the MoreDakka page wasn't a good [[MemeticMutation enuff]] illustration.
* Battle-hydra Dawn Castes in ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' who ''do'' have the Charms for using multiple weapons but ''don't'' have [[HyperspaceArsenal Elsewhere storage Charms]] tend to fall into this. When a big burly Dawn turns up with a [[PrecisionGuidedBoomerang sky-cutter]], [[TheArcher powerbow]], [[{{BFS}} daiklave]] and [[PowerFist smashfists]] strapped to various locations on his body, you know you're not going to have a fun time.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* A DeadHorseTrope in regards to protagonists of every first- or third person shooter released before ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''. Limiting the total amount of weapons a protagonist can carry has become [[FollowTheLeader somewhat widespread]] since then to the point when having a HyperspaceArsenal is uncommon enough to stand out. This has instead lead to the (equally ridiculous) situation where you can carry around a bazooka and a heavy machine gun, but can't carry three pistols instead.
* Alta´r in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedI'' is a master of several weapons, including a sword, a dagger, throwing knives, and a hidden blade. Ezio in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'' takes it a step further by carrying a second hidden blade (potentially filled with poison) and a gun. He also apparently can use any weapon he can find with equal effectiveness, from a dagger to a giant axe or a spear. In ''Brotherhood'', he also gets a crossbow and can [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks throw heavy weapons]] with deadly accuracy. Finally, ''Revelations'' gives Ezio up to 15 bombs of different types and configurations. And people wonder why guards get suspicious of a guy wearing a hood and carrying an arsenal on his person. He also has no trouble using LeonardoDaVinci's inventions (tank, bomber, boat-mounted artillery, machinegun) without even reading the manual.
** Naturally, Connor of ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII'' is more of the same, with the arsenal expanded to include a bow and a second handgun. Tomahawks can also be carried in place of daggers and bayonet-equipped muskets replace spears and two-handed swords from the Ezio trilogy.
* ''VideoGame/Bloodrayne'' opts for a HyperspaceArsenal by default, though you can switch to Walking Armory by typing in a particular code (''showmemyweapons'') in the cheat code menu. The end result is a scantily clad dhampyr stomping about with eight weapons strapped all around her (ranging from Luger P-08s to full size FG-42s and MP-40s) and a special weapon (which may be the MG-08, the single largest weapon in the game). Hilarity ensues when Rayne starts doing cartwheels with well over a hundred kilograms of metal strapped to her.
* In ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'', as a MythologyGag to ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII''[='s=] [[LoveItOrHateIt unique]] experience-gaining system, Firion (pictured above) wields virtually ''every'' equippable weapon from that game ([[CoolSword a sword]], [[KnifeNut knives]], [[ArcherArchetype a bow & arrow]], [[AnAxeToGrind an axe]], [[BladeOnAStick a lance]], [[MagicWand a spellcasting rod]], and [[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe a shield]]) in honor of his [[LaResistance crew]]. Unlike the other heroes, [[HyperspaceArsenal who summon and disperse their weapons at will]], Firion decides to be a man and wear 'em all at once. [[MightyGlacier He's the slowest of the Warriors of Cosmos]], [[JustifiedTrope and understandably so]].
* Link, especially in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast''. Official art for the game shows him carrying all of his equipment on his back.
* ''VideoGame/MegaMan5'' introduces us to [[http://megaman.wikia.com/wiki/Napalm_Man Napalm Man]], who is essentially a human-sized tank. [[http://megaman.wikia.com/wiki/Mars Mars]] from ''Mega Man V'' (the GameBoy ''Rockman World'' series) would appear to be an {{expy}} of him, albeit not ''quite'' as armed.
** In ''VideoGame/MegaManXCommandMission'', X's [[SuperMode Ultimate]] [[InfinityPlusOneSword Armor]] is--''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGO10ER9Nws by far]]''--the most heavily-equipped Armor in the entire franchise. By the time you obtain it, however, [[BraggingRightsReward you]] [[InfinityPlusOneSword (possibly)]] [[BraggingRightsReward won't even need it]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grBA4clVjDw The intro]] for ''Neo {{Contra}}'' showed one of the protagonists reloading weapon magazines, then panning out to reveal he is surrounded by stacks of ''hundreds'' of magazines.
* Jason in ''VideoGame/RiseOfTheArgonauts''. Even the [[http://img217.imageshack.us/img217/233/argonautsw.jpg box art]] makes no effort to hide that he carts around a sword, spear, mace, and shield ''everywhere''.
* The protagonists in the various MarkOfKri games all carry at least four weapons at any given time, generally in golf-bag-style leather packs on their back.
* [[TheHero Reiji Arisu]], [[TheLancer Xiaomu]], and [[BigBad Saya]] of ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom''. Reiji wields two [[KatanasAreJustBetter katanas]], two guns, ''and'' a [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter shotgun]], while Xiaomu uses a [[SwordCane shikomizue]] and two pistols. Saya, [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill going for the gusto]], carries ''three'' katanas as well as lugging around a [=M203=] GrenadeLauncher. Seeing as their styles involve constantly swapping out their weapons, [[SwordAndGun using the swords in concert with their guns]], and [[ElementalPowers spicing up their attacks]] [[MagicKnight with magic]], expect ''a lot'' of GunKata and GunsAkimbo.
* Geralt of ''TheWitcher'' has no less than ''five'' weapon slots. One for a steel sword (used on mundane creatures), one for a silver sword (used on supernatural creatures), one for a torch, axe, or mace, one for a dagger and smaller hand axes, and one for bombs. Only one weapon for each slot may be carried at a time, and all of them are stowed visibly somewhere on Geralt's body.
** In the sequel, he just uses a steel sword, silver sword, throwing daggers and bombs however.
* [[RobotGirl KOS-MOS]] of ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'' half-subverts this trope. Aside from her ability to [[ShapeshifterWeapon transmute her arms into various weapons]], she can utilize the [[TeleportersAndTransporters U.M.N. Transportation Gate]] to summon {{BFG}}s, all of which she [[DualWielding dual-wields]]. The [[IconicItem most iconic]] (and ''weakest'') special weapons are a set of triple-barreled [[GatlingGood tri-gatling guns]] (that's three sets of barrels each, making for a grand total of ''nine'' barrels per gun; in other words, she's using ''[[MoreDakka eighteen barrels of firepower]]'' in all).
* In the first ''Franchise/MassEffect'', every member of your party would carry a handgun, a shotgun, an assault-rifle and a sniper-rifle on them at all times (regardless of whether they had the actual talents for them). They're all "collapsible", but they still wind up with their backs utterly covered in guns. In [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 the sequel]], this has been dialed down noticeably--each NPC only carries 2 weapons from the list (now with one more weapon type, [=SMGs=]), while most PC's carry 3 or 4 weapons at most. But Soldier!Shepard actually takes it even further than before. Not only does s/he carry each of the above-mentioned weapon, s/he also carries a "Heavy Weapon" of choice, which can range from a [[PlayingWithFire Flamethrower]] or a [[ShockAndAwe Lightning-Bolt Gun]] to a [[NukeEm Portable Nuke Launcher]]. (Infiltrator!Shepard and Vanguard!Shepard can reach a similar level of ridiculousness if he/she picks an additional Weapon Specialization in the Collector Ship, instead of upgrading to a better Sniper Rifle/Shotgun. Soldier!Shepard just gets the choice between the aforementioned Sniper/Shotgun upgrades, and trading in his Assault-Rifle for a Heavy Machinegun.)
** In one of the conversations before the Eden Prime mission, Shepard can describe Nihlus as "carrying enough weapons to kill an entire squad". [[HypocriticalHumor He doesn't have more guns than Shepard]], but he doesn't have ''fewer'', either.
* Parodied in the opening of ''VideoGame/TotalOverdose''. Ram sorts through weapons in the back of a truck, then kicks in the gates of a mobster's compound with ''every one of them'' bundled in his arms, and dynamite clenched in his teeth.
* In ''VideoGame/{{X-COM}}'' you could turn your soldiers into this though it would severely cut down on their mobility. A single soldier could carry four rifles, two pistols and fill out the rest of the slots with assorted ammo, grenades and high explosives. Heavy weapons like auto-guns and missile launchers required the same space as two rifles.
* In ''VideoGame/RyuGaGotoku 4'' (aka ''Yakuza 4''), the hulking brute, Saejima, makes his debut by arming himself with six revolvers: two in his pants, two in his hands, one stuck in his coat pocket and one clenched in his teeth. He winds up using every last one of these bullets (since he was planning on going on a rampage to kill off nearly the entire heads of a rival yakuza family, he wouldn't have any time to reload).
* ''{{Mousehunt}}'' has the [[MultiMeleeMaster Master]] [[http://pics.livejournal.com/camomiletea/pic/000re159 of the Cheese Fang]].
* Each PlayerCharacter in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' games can be armed with a two-handed or one-handed sword, along with an axe and a bow, to say nothing about numerous daggers, especially if these are glass weapons. The amount of weapons carried around is limited only by the PC´┐Żs strength and players´┐Ż imagination
* Lord Francisca from ''VideoGame/HalfMinuteHero'', who appears in the appropriately-named quest Infinite Weapon Lord. She's seated on a chest with a mass of various weapons at her back, and will actually steal that quest's weapons if you aren't quick enough.

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* ''Jailhouse Blues'', a [[SeriesHiatus defunct]] fancomic [[http://bobandgeorge.com/downloads/ formerly]] hosted on the ''BobAndGeorge'' website. In it, [[VideoGame/MegaMan the Blue Bomber]] encounters [[InsistentTerminology Artillery Man]] ([[PaletteSwap based off of]] the aforementioned Napalm Man), whose weaponry includes an ArmCannon, [[MacrossMissileMassacre missiles]], [[GatlingGood a chain gun]], a LaserBlade, and ([[BraggartBoss apparently]]) ''[[BlasphemousBoast more ammunition than God]]''. As such, Mega Man dubs him Obviously CompensatingForSomething Man. The weapon Mega Man [[PowerCopying obtains from him]] ''[[TheWorfBarrage does nothing]]'' in the few times he's whipped it out. This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] when [[strike:Heat Man]] Nasty Toilet Man notes that it resembles a widely-used tactic from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' and points out that [[GenreSavvy such attacks never work]].
* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', robotic bunny Liv Tyler shows up with ''four'' [[InfinityPlusOneSword ultimate weapons]] strapped to its back -- [[DropTheHammer Warhammer of Zillyhoo]], [[MagicWand Quills of Echidna]], [[CoolSword Royal Deringer]], and [[WaveMotionGun Ahab's Crosshairs]].

* The [[Machinima/RedVsBlue Rooster Teeth]] show ''WebVideo/{{Immersion}}'' tested this in an episode, basing the arsenal that their subjects would carry on their respective persons (total weight about 200 pounds or slightly below) off of ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' and using two test subjects walking through a course. One managed to walk through the course, albeit slowly, and the second subject fell over where he stood before taking even a single step. The one who made it was previously in the military and likened the experience to being in the military.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanUnderTheRedHood'' as indicated by the page quote.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' villain [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Armory]], a vengeful weapons developer who took some samples home from work.
* More than a few of the {{Transformers}} in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars''. Optimus Primal's original body had two swords, a double-barelled gun fixed to his wrist, and a pair of missile launchers on his back. Predacon Terrorsaur took it even further, carrying a short-barelled pistol, a longer pistol, a medium-sized gun, a rifle, laser EyeBeams, and a pair of short-barelled guns on his neck/shoulders.
** And on one occasion, a gigantic fucking missile on his arm.
** Originally, the Transformers tended to have weapons that they used like humans would guns. (The Decepticons tended to have a weapon or two built-in.) More recent series have taken advantage of the fact that the characters are ''robots'' and tend to include their "classic" weapons as sort of their special power, integrated directly into their systems, while they carry (or mount) more standard-issue weapons tech.

* A few decades before TheRomanRepublic became TheRomanEmpire, a consul named Gaius Marius demanded that armies stop using beasts of burden to carry weapons and armor: If it's your weapon, it's your responsibility to carry it. Initially, this rule was ridiculed, and the soldiers who were now forced to carry a whole bunch of weapons and armor rather than rely on pack animals were called "Marius' Mules"... Then people realized how much it improved the army's mobility and overall effectiveness...
** Not that the standard-issue weaponry of a Roman infantryman was ever terribly excessive by the standards of this page: it consisted of a sword and shield, a dagger and a couple of javelins. While the shields were quite large, the Roman gladius was an arming sword. The "Mule" comes from all the other gear he's expected to carry: entrenching tool, basket for moving earth, stakes for the camp palisade, a few days' rations, etc.
* One would-be bank robber attempted to pull this off in real life, and demonstrated exactly why more people don't do this: he fell over on his way out of the bank and couldn't get back up because his weapons were too heavy. He remained there until the police arrived and arrested him.
* In the wake of the Columbine shootings, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ge8aZqgxV7Q Garett Metal Detectors]] did an ad showing a high school student in regular clothes (if a bit baggy, which was in style at the time) who proceeds to pull out 8 pistols, an Uzi submachine gun, and a full length pump action shotgun concealed in his pants. One wonders how a person is supposed to walk with a shotgun down one's pantleg.
** Actually, depending on the bagginess of the pants, it could be quite easy. Tripps, for example.
* During the Classical/Renaissance periods, it was not unusual for combatants to carry at least six pistols, as well as assorted melee weapons. This was bred out of necessity, as reloading times were long and misfires were notoriously common.
** Even in the later era of percussion firearms, when misfires were greatly reduced, it was common to carry multiple pistols, because reloading was still slow. During TheAmericanCivilWar, Confederate guerrillas like Jesse James tended to carry multiple revolvers. The cap-and-ball revolver had six shots compared to the one shot of most weapons of the day, but once it was empty it was still slow to reload. Thus, a few men on horseback carrying 6 revolvers each could take out a platoon of regular infantry, as long as the fighting was at close range.
