Would a Truth In Television section work here? I'm an Infantry team leader, and my rifle looks like something out of MW 2, M4 Grenadier with ACOG, I've got a handgun on my chest, a knife on my vest, and usually there's some extra ammo for the 240 sitting somewhere...

Seeing as we already have a Real Life example about the Roman army, I don't see why not.

Umm... the number of weapons a Walking Armory carries, and the weight of them (A scottish claymore weighs 5 lbs) don't way as much as implied by the description of this trope. Modern high-school students carry more weight.

Link from Legend of Zelda is kind of perfect for this trope, it's a source of amusement for the fans who lampshade this trope in fanart and the such.

I know that fanart (and even some official art from the first game◊) tend to show the ludicrous amounts of items and weapons he comes across from game to game, but in-game, Link operates under Bag of Holding and Hyperspace Arsenal; besides his sword and shield, he's rarely seen carrying anything else. He has to be shown carrying all of them of his being to qualify for this trope.
