Moved/merged the following to the Sub-Trope Ammunition Backpack:

  • Batman and the Outsiders #6, "Death Warmed Over!". The team battles the Cryonic Man, a villain with a backpack full of liquid nitrogen attached to wrist-mounted sprayers that he uses to freeze the Outsiders solid.
  • The Green Arrow's most famous arrow quiver is a wide rucksack design that covers his entire back.

  • The proton packs in Ghostbusters; easily the most well-known example of this trope.

  • The PGMP/FGMP (Plasma/Fusion Gun, Man Portable) and laser carbine/rifle in Traveller had backpack power packs.
  • Warhammer 40,000: the ammo supply to a hellgun
  • Paranoia has flamethrowers and plasma generators. On the down side, a malfunction means they're about to explode, and the wielder must spend time unstrapping themselves before trying to outrun the blast radius.
