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.

It's more hyperbole than anything. The main gist is "person carries a lot of weapons", which is impractical in most cases.

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.
