* The classic (fourth edition!) ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' card [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=2073 Tetravus]] functions much like this. It has slightly more modern descendants such as [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=244251 Pentavus]] and [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=247519 Triskelavus]].

** Overlord (AKA Gigatron) is a massive self-combiner - his robot mode is made of two individual vehicles, a tank and a jet. The two combine into a huge robot that stands head and shoulders over Optimus Prime while ''combined with his trailer''. As with Magmatron, Overlord's two vehicle parts typically attack on their own but can strategize due to being shared by a single consciousness.

* In his fight with Sunny, Tommyrod from ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'' loses his hand. Then turns out, he deliberatly let this happen, so his hand (which can live on it's own for few hours, due to insect-like nervous system of Tommyrod) can attack enemy from behind. Surprisingly, Sunny [[spoiler:been doing exact same thing with strains of his hair, that Tommyrod ripped off earlier]]

* Arcee from ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'' does this, but there is a degree of ambiguity as whether she's this or a CombiningMecha. The writers of the film initially conceived her as being one robot made of three bikes which would even combine together into a larger robot mode but the appearance of the combined mode was ultimately dropped and Michael Bay changed her into three separate robots which the toys agree with. HOWEVER, the novelization and comics portray her in the way the authors intended, with the combined mode appearing briefly in each.

Added DiffLines:

* Franchise/{{Transformers}}:
** The original description for Autobot Commander Optimus Prime was that he had three components that he could control - his robot mode, his trailer/command base, and the small vehicle Roller. Later interpretations generally treat the trailer as non-living and Roller as an AI controlled but independent drone.
** Magmatron has what is called a Tripartite Spark, and has three separate beast modes that combine into his robot mode. The beasts can also combine into a vague approximation of a dragon. Either way, the three beasts can act independently when separated and split up to better strategize.
** Overlord (AKA Gigatron) is a massive self-combiner - his robot mode is made of two individual vehicles, a tank and a jet. The two combine into a huge robot that stands head and shoulders over Optimus Prime while ''combined with his trailer''.

* ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'' has two during one boss battle. [[LevelAte Baroness von Bon Bon's]] waffle minion can separate into his individual pockets, which fly outward in straight lines. The Baroness herself can throw her head and regrow it while the previous one flies around and tries to attack you.

A RocketPunch is a form of this. HelpingHands is also a form of this if it's voluntary.

voluntary. Characters with FloatingLimbs have justification for this, although they may not always be able to perform this.

* Parodied in the ''Franchise/UltraSeries'' parody ''Den Ace''. One of the finishing moves of the titular character involves detaching his head and throwing it at his enemy, after which it returns to him in a boomerang like fashion.
