* In ''Fanfic/AGoodCompromise'', the USS ''Black Prince'' is a ''Hephaestus''-class advanced escort, a variant of the ''Prometheus''-class, so naturally it has multi-vector assault mode. The fic deals with some of the practicalities of having three independently operated sections: each section requires an independent warp core, and coordinating the three sections is more than a mortal captain can handle, so ''Prince'''s shipboard {{AI}} Edward, is in charge of flying Beta and Gamma. Tyria Sark uses MVAM in part 3 [[spoiler:to even the odds against a squadron of Jem'Hadar attack ships]].

* Franchise/{{BIONICLE}} had an example in the heavy crowd-control [[MechaMooks Vahki]] model, the Kraahu. Intact, it could spray stun gas; when that was impractical, it could detach its [[MultiArmedAndDangerous six limbs]] and send them off to fight. This was a viable tactic for two reasons: a) all Vahki, including the Kraahu's individual parts, could fly, and b) said parts could give off a [[ShockAndAwe powerful electric charge]] on contact.

* The page image depicts M.F. Enterprises' Captain Marvel. Not to be confused with the more famous DC and Marvel heroes that also go by that name, the M.F. Enterprises Captain Marvel was an android with the ability to separate his body parts and make them float.

** In ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' the saucer of the ''Galaxy''-class can separate and fight independently of the stardrive. However the saucer section is only seen participating in combat in "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II". On all other occasions it is used as a large escape pod for the non-combatants like the families of the crew.
** ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' introduces the ''Prometheus''-class escort, a "one-ship task force" capable of separating into three independently warp-capable sections for combat.
