Contrast with CombiningMecha. See also DisposableVehicleSection, LosingYourHead and DroneDeployer. For different kind of detaching, compare OneToMillionToOne; BlobMonster and ElementalShapeshifter may be able to do something similar.

Contrast with CombiningMecha. CombiningMecha and the horrific mutilation tropes: AnArmAndALeg, OffWithHisHead and HalfTheManHeUsedToBe. User of this trope may fool their enemy into thinking that the three aforementioned tropes happen, only to surprise them by making the detached body parts move.

For flesh beings who do this, the fact that the limbs can work despite being, you know, [[AnArmAndALeg detached]] is either not addressed or made into RequiredSecondaryPowers; another secondary power is to levitate all those limbs, and superhuman coordination or OrganAutonomy (for robot characters/mechas, the technology used in building them likely justifies all of the issues above). Don't expect to see exposed organs or blood gushing out of the detached parts; they're either neatly covered or MadeOfBologna.

* Sometimes shows up in the ''Literature/PerryRhodan'' universe. At the more mundane level, some fleet tender designs have a command section that can separate from the attached repair platform and operate on their own, although this is generally less for combat and more for emergency purposes; serious military application tends to be more limited to unique BattleStar-type designs like [=OLD MAN=][[note]](hemisphere with twelve detachable rectangular platforms extending outwards from the base)[[/note]], the [=SOL=][[note]](cylindrical central section connecting two spheres)[[/note]], or the [=GILGAMESH=][[note]](splittable dodecahedron with a central section for thirteen parts total)[[/note]].
