*** ''Series/DoubutsuSentaiZyuohger'' is almost entirely kibble. Since the mecha are formed by cubes stacking on top of each other, the parts for the series' main robots are visible on one of the cube faces. The SixthRanger's robot, a large rhino-truck, turns the rhino's horn into one of its hands - said horn-hand containing the face of its combined form with the core five's robots on the back at all times, not even tucked away behind a panel.

** TransformersEnergon's combiner teams tried to solve the kibble problem by having the individual [=TFs'=] weapons become the hands and feet.

** Hot Shot of TransformersArmada can do it as well. Interestingly, Bumblebee in ''Animated'' was ''intended'' to be a new version of Hot Shot before the live-action film increased Bumblebee's name value. It's been noted even by people who didn't know about this that he ''acts'' more like a Hot Shot than a Bumblebee.

** The main transformation gimmick in ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'', was that the Riders summoned giant pieces of fruit that deployed around them as armor. Needles to say, the toy versions of some of armors had very noticeable kibble. A good example is Mango Arms, which had large pieces of Mango hanging from the Rider's back.

A Two good example is examples are Mango Arms and Lemon Energy Arms, both of which had large pieces of Mango have {{Badass Cape}}s in the show; obviously the toys couldn't magically transform, so instead you have plastic "shells" hanging from off the Rider's back.

* ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'': Den-O's armor consists of two pieces which swap around depending on which form is active: Sword Form's chestplate opens up vertically for Gun Form, and it becomes the backplate for Rod and Ax Form. Meanwhile, Ax Form's chestplate splits horizontally for Rod Form's chest and shoulders, and it is (of course) Sword and Gun's back. Wing Form is a recolored and modified Sword Form, while [[SuperMode Climax and Liner Forms]] are completely original.

* ** One of the powers of the eponymous character in ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' was the Final Form Ride, which could turn other Riders into huge weapons, usually falling in the {{BFS}} and {{BFG}} category. While the show could, logically, portray these transformations cleanly, the toys not so much. When looking at some of the Riders in weapon mode from a certain angle, it just seemed like them taking an uncomfortable pose while having extra bits and pieces attached to their body.

** The ''{{Transformers}}'' ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' (no, they weren't tied into the Transformers universe, but apparently the similarity in transforming, not to mention the [[Series/{{Animorphs}} crappy TV show]] airing at the same time, led to a line of Transformer/Animorphs toys being released) toys had similar problems with animal parts hanging off. The [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Hork-Bajir 'Visser Three to Hork Bajir']] one is an especially huge mess because it was a triple changer. Tobias's body still looks very hawk-like in his human form, with the hawk head visible hanging down in the back.

** Sadly, Kanzen Gokaioh was semi-spoiled in ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' because Machalcon has a very obvious hand sticking out of his back from day one. At the very least, you ''knew'' he had a formation other than "gets ridden like a skateboard."
** ''Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger'' has DX Shinobimaru, which has an arm mode. You would think that they would have the hand come separately, like with [[Series/SeijuuSentaiGingaman Gingaioh]], but nope, the hand can be seen between the legs.

Gokaioh was semi-spoiled in from ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' (known as the Legendary Megazord in ''Series/PowerRangersSuperMegaforce'') has some kibble problems with the vehicles forming its arms. [=GokaiJet=] is basically an arm with wings, as its fist is clearly visible. [=GokaiRacer=] does it a little bit better by having its fist being the motor block. But it is still recognizable as a fist. [=GokaiGalleon=] also has some kibble, in the form of the upper legs sticking out of it's back.

** ''Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger'' has some big offenders in this regard:
*** Some of the separate mecha from the
DX Shinobimaru, which has Shurikenjin. [=DragoMaru=] and [=ShinobiMaru=] both have an arm mode. You would think that they would have the hand come separately, like with [[Series/SeijuuSentaiGingaman Gingaioh]], but nope, the hand can be seen between the legs.legs.
*** [=LionHaoh's=] arms/front legs have hands sticking to their elbows, which are needed for the combination with Shurikenjin and Bison King.
*** The final mecha, [=GekiAtsuDaiOh=], is very bad with this. Especially the center part Genbumaru, which should look like a turtle, but instead looks like a robot with its lower legs and arms chopped off, since the upper legs and face of the combined robot are very clearly visible, as seen [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/powerrangers/images/8/89/Genbumaru.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20151001042101 here]]

** In ''TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' #45, Krok comments that he knows a mech who was so anti-alt-mode, he had all his kibble surgically removed because he couldn't stand to look at himself in the mirror.

** Bulkhead in ''TransformersAnimated'' shows off the single most awesome use of kibble ever, by converting the "leftover" parts of his vehicle mode [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Image:Bulkheadchair.jpg into a chair]]. One of his many toys [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Bulkhead_%28Animated%29 can do the same thing (leader, 2008).]] This shows the impact kibble has on the fandom, as everyone went crazy with that idea.
