Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/GodOfWarII'', the [[{{Mooks}} Fates Sentries]] and Guardians have curved, multi-jagged blades attached to their upper arms. Not that they help them much...

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheSunAtNight'': [[TheProtagonist Laika]] is an [[IntelligentGerbil alien dog]] who wears a suit with a blaster on her back.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/{{Gamaran}}'', Kotaro's secret weapon, the Mitsuboshi (Orion's Belt) has three long weighted chains connected to an armlet with a sickle blade attached to it. Partially subverted since he mostly uses the chains of the weapon to attack and restrain his opponents.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Genji}}'', [[EvilSorcerer Kuyo]]'s only weapon is a sharp dagger attached to the tip of her RapunzelHair. She notably uses it like a stinger to attack the player during the Kamui phase.


* The film version of ''Film/ReturnOfTheKing'' features [[WarElephants Oliphaunts]] with blades attached to their long tusks. They swath large amounts of enemies in a single swing.

* ''Videogame/SenranKagura'': Mirai summons weapons from under her dress, including an anti-material rifle [[PhallicWeapon which looks exactly like what you'd expect]].

** ''Series/ResshaSentaiTokkyuger'' had the infamous "[[http://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/19hdedg21z2yejpg.jpg train boner]]"; the fact that it was [[WidgetSeries the kind of series to include such things]] is probably the major reason it won't be getting adapted for ''Power Rangers''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'': Brokk Grungsson apparently thought giving his PowerArmor a gigantic [[BadassMustache ornamental mustache]] and ''mounting a gun on each side of it'' was a swell idea.


* In WW2, anti-tank gunners came up with what was thought to be an unusual but remarkably effective[[note]]and cheap[[/note]] expedient. Why bother towing your anti-tank gun and taking valuable time to dismount, unhitch, traverse and load it (in the face of enemy fire). German, British and Russian anti-tank gunners, independently of each other, chose to cut out the middleman and have their guns mounted directly on the back of what had previously been its prime mover (the lorry that towed it). Now all that was necessary was to turn the whole lorry to bring the gun to bear. Additional armour for crew protection could be mounted on the lorry. At first the guns were tied or chained down to the cargo-bed, but later refinements saw the weapon permanently welded into a fixed mounting. In the wide-open spaces of the Western Desert or Russia, the portée gun system became a desirable and effective part of mobile warfare. Britain found it extended the service life of the two-pounder, a weapon whose wheeled carriage was dissappointingly fragile and could break beyond repair in Egypt and Libya. Portée guns went out of favour when the war moved into more settled semi-urban areas such as Italy and France.

* Mouth Cannon: Cannons put inside your mouth. Gives an impression of a BreathWeapon. How they work despite being inside a mouth is usually not addressed, though may be hand-waved with robotic characters.
