So I'm seeing a facepalm-worthy problem here. This trope is obstinately almost losing gear from one game to the next, right? There is no mention of the concept of this happening over the COURSE of a game, but several examples listed are of that time. Would it be sensible to update the trope description, branch such examples off into a subtrope, or be stricter in how this trope is applied?

Are examples from fanfiction allowed as examples in the trope if they do it in a notable fashion?

The "notable fashion" bit isn't even needed. In theory, all works that use a trope can be listed on its page, from an obscure Dead Fic of an old fandom through to the Most Triumphant Example from an epic film. Go ahead and add fanfiction examples if you like.

The second Justified example: "The opening cutscene shows a mysterious rival stealing Baron's fire sword and magical armor, underestimating Baron by leaving him with just a knife." Fits in with Castlevania:Symphony of the Night without even going into sequel, after a few screens, Alucard is stripped of the most (Or second most) powerful equipment in the game.

I don't get why no one is playing with the trope. Lampshading: "You look weak. What happened to your weapons?"
