* In ''IronManArmoredAdventures,'' instead of a suitcase-suit, [[HighSchoolAU teen Tony]] has it as a backpack. It only requires that the central button be pushed and it forms around him on its own without him having to do anything else, making for the most {{Toku}}-like version yet. Now all we need is [[ByThePowerOfGreyskull voice activation]].

* Geo and Sonia from ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'', though they got their powers [[TouchedByVorlons from aliens]].
** Also, in the preceding games, VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork, there is a form of this. As said in anime, there is no cross fusion, but the form of this appears comes from the battle system. Put simply: plain megaman is fairly weak at the start of the game, and using chips is the only real way to get through it with your sanity intact. His normal form has only a weak buster that has no special ability. With the right use of customization, a character can have megaman's normal form be his most deadly, but usually that's only late game. All the game's gimmick powerup, form in 2 and 3, souls in 4 5 and 6, are basically this, giving him a more powerful buster and abilities that allow megaman to fight better without chips.
* In the ''VideoGame/MegaManZX'' series, a Mega Man is a person able to use a Biometal to transform in a process called "megamerging".
** And since some villains also have Biometals, the series also have "Henshin Villains".
** The original ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' did it once, in the GameBoy ''V''. No invocation, he just jumps into the air and transforms from Rock to Mega Man. [[spoiler:It doesn't help.]]
** A short mini-comic also implies that his helmet can be used as his henshin device.

Geo and Sonia from ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'', though they got their powers [[TouchedByVorlons from aliens]].
** Also,
who become Mega Man and Harp Note by undergoing a FusionDance with EnergyBeings Omega-Xis and Lyra. In fact, most of the cast undergoes such ''Henshin'', but heroes are in the preceding games, VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork, there is definite minority. The process actually bears a form of this. As said in anime, there is no cross fusion, but the form of this appears comes certain resemblance to ''Cross Fusion'' from the battle system.

In the ''VideoGame/MegaManZX'' series, a Mega Man is a person able to use a Biometal to transform in a process called "megamerging".

"megamerging". Like ''Star Force'', since some villains also have Biometals, the series also have has "Henshin Villains".
** The Even the original ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' did it ''[[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Mega Man]]'' was prone to it, since he had a non-combat form he spent most of his time in; that said, the audience almost never gets to see Rock in his off-hours, so sightings of the change are few and far between. There's that once, in the GameBoy ''V''. No invocation, he just jumps into the air and transforms from Rock to Mega Man. [[spoiler:It doesn't help.]]
