Hero and sidekick are surrounded by enemy forces. The sidekick looks scared.
Sidekick: How are we going to get out of this?
Hero holds up a large weapon that was obviously not on their person previously.
Hero: Worry not, this army is no match for my deus ex machiner!
Sidekick looks outraged.
Sidekick: Where did that weapon come from?!
Hero: Oh, this little thing? Always had it.
Sidekick: Then why didn’t you use it on that T-Rex?
Hero: We had to build character.
Sidekick: The necromancer?
Hero: Needed to break his spirit.
Sidekick: The alien invasion?
Hero: I forgot about it.
Sidekick facepalms in frustration.
Sidekick: Well… what matters is that we can use it going forward.
Hero is still proud and chipper. Sidekick glares.
Hero: Count on it!
Hero: As long there’s no atmospheric interference to keep it from firing and our enemies don’t know the counter charm that negates its effect, of course.
