* Justified in ''Literature/{{Genome}}'', since widespread use of genetic engineering allows people to modify their bodies so that "unused" cavities become small pockets to store weapons and important objects.
* In Creator/RobertAHeinlein's ''Literature/{{Friday}}'', this is actually the heroine's special ability. Getting stuff in and out of the pocket is actually pretty complicated, it's very small, and she can't do it herself.

* Justified This might be how the animal villagers in ''Literature/{{Genome}}'', since widespread use of genetic engineering allows people to modify VideoGame/AnimalCrossing carry their bodies so that "unused" cavities become small items. As they are all [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal Half-Dressed Cartoon Animals]] (only wearing shirts) and they allude to having pockets (despite them being pantsless), this trope comes to mind. Now, how exactly do they fit giant isopods in their apparent pockets?

* A one-time accomplice to a murderer in the ''ComicStrip/DickTracy'' comics was "The Pouch," who had been a circus fat-man until the circus folded. "The Pouch" subsequently lost a lot of body weight, which left many folds of excess skin around his neck. By adding snaps to the folds near his larynx, "Pouch" was able to conceal a handgun that a hitman had used to kill a snitch.

* In many video games, the character either has nowhere it to put his gear or can fit [[HyperspaceArsenal an absurdly large amount]] in the pouch.
* Played straight with ammo and grenades in most ''{{Franchise/Halo}}'' games, but averted in ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'' and ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', where the player has visible ammo pouches.
* A DummiedOut plasmid in ''VideoGame/BioShock1'' called "Organic Pockets" would have allowed the player to store additional items in folds of his skin.
