* Used in a commercial for Netflix (or a similar product) that plays this scene typically, highlighting how they're making movies more awesome again.
* Sprint's Samsung Epic 4G ads included a spoof movie called "Epic [[CowboyCop Renegade Cop]]" featuring a [[TurnInYourBadge Turn In Your Weapon]] moment--is a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WODWSiyaLo perfect example]] of this.

Among the things the CowboyCop sets down are a (ludicrously huge) HandCannon, a pair of nunchucks, a machine gun, and, when DaChief glares at him, a rocket launcher.


* ''LightNovel/KinosJourney'', done completely straight with three guns and five knives. Kino pretty much distracted some slavers by the amount of weapons being removed and then still killed them with a remaining weapon. The remaining weapon being a [[CrazyPrepared fully-functional, small shotgun hidden inside of a fully-functional knife]].

* In ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The Two Towers'', Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, and Gandalf are stopped before being given an audience in the hall of the Rohirrim. Aside from their primary weapons of a sword, an axe, and a bow, they have on them at least half a dozen each of secondary weapons such as small utility axes, daggers, combat knives, and so on. Gandalf only hands over his sword, and in the end ''gets to keep his staff'', quite possibly the most dangerous weapon of them all and the thing Wormtongue wanted taken in the first place -- because he played up the "weak old man" angle to fool the guards. It's implied the guards knew full well that the staff was magical, and they were just hoping he'd use it to free their king. When the company do make their move, the doorward (Háma) keeps the other (good) soldiers out of it (a few of the guards did attempt to stop Gandalf, but Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli were able to hold them off [[GoodOldFisticuffs without weapons]]).

* In Creator/RobertAHeinlein's ''Literature/ThePuppetMasters'' there are several tongue-in-cheek references to the protagonist's LoveInterest being [[ActionGirl excessively armed]].

A couple scenes later, the counter is covered with all various types of guns from pistols to automatic rifles to an actual rocket launcher. Exhausted security guards wave him through, and his first action is to reach down his back collar and pull out his staple AK-47.

* On an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Squidbillies}}'', Early is being disarmed by the sheriff and produces a pile of weapons the size of his house. This from a creature no more than a foot tall.
** Among the arsenal are roughly 30 sawn off shotguns, several hunting knives, a razor brimmed hat, and a slingshot-style grenade launcher ''[[UpToEleven made of shotguns]]'' (yes, you read that right).

* In the 1987 version of the ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'', the turtles have surrendered to Shredder and Krang and are ordered to hand over all of their weapons. After handing over their normal weapons of two katanas, two sais, two nunchuks and a bo staff they are taken outside by foot soldiers and supervised in unloading the turtle van. They proceed to unload enough weapons to form a pile half as big as the van is. And bear in mind that internal shots of the van show that everything is stored in compact compartments with lots of internal space for the turtles and several friends to stand up in.
** Further played with, in that later in the same episode the Turtles get a convenient distraction and they proceed to apparently pull holdout weapons from literally out of their asses.

* ''Series/MythBusters'': During the ''Series/MacGyver'' special, Adam and Jamie are given a series of challenges based on the show. Just before the challenge begins, they're searched thoroughly for tools and other contraband. There were a ''lot'' of items on them. About the only "tool" they got to keep was at least one set of steel-toed boots, which allowed Adam to reshape a light bulb filament to use for picking a lock.

* Inverted/parodied in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}.'' Archer starts a bare-chested LockAndLoadMontage of putting on four guns, three knives, and a grenade--only for the perspective to pull back and show he was doing ''it in front of'' a guy he was trying to intimidate, having apparently taken off all his gear and his ''clothes'' first.

Added DiffLines:

* A [[https://archiveofourown.org/works/16897596 similarly-titled]] ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' fanfic has a variation that shows multiple ''characters'' handing over their weapons (RuleOfFunny lets multiple versions of Lightning and Yeul go through it). Most of them hand them over with just technical details for the poor sap doing the disarming (i.e. ''XIII''!Lightning warning him to keep his [[{{Fingore}} fingers from getting caught]] in her [[TransformingWeapon gunblade]]'s mechanical bits). Some of them try to sneak weapons in discreetly (Serah's bowsword gets through because it's [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Mog]] at the time). The guy has a detector for people who claim to have no weapons, and ends up scanning three different Yeuls; when a fourth Yeul arrives, he just lets her in. Snow [[GoodOldFisticuffs hands over his gloves]] [[BareFistedMonk just to make a point]].
