*** Heck, in ''Film/HeiseiRiderVsShowaRiderKamenRiderWarsFeaturingSuperSentai'', [=ToQ-Oh=] ends up combining with [[Series/KamenRiderDenO the Den-Liner]]... first as its head, then as its ''feet'' when [[Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger Kyoryu Ressha]] butts in.

* Nearly every unique mecha in ''CodeGeass'' eventually gains flight capability thanks to a bulky "Float Unit". The Lancelot later receives a shoulder-mounted "[[{{BFG}} hadron cannon]]" as well - referred to as "Conquista formation".

* ''Anime/TimeBokan24'' has the main TransformingMecha Mechabuton, and a wide array of other bug-themed ones that can be used for two kinds of combinations. Super Docking enhances it in vehicle form, offering things like a PowerFist or turning it into an elephant, while Cosplay Docking offers a more typical expansion-pack type powerup, drawing on everything from pirates to samurai to salarymen.

** In the first season of ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', the Dragonzord could either be combined with the Mammoth, Saber-Toothed Tiger, and Triceratops Zords to make a new humanoid machine, or truer to the trope, combine with the completed Megazord as an extra weapons pack (this wasn't often used because the Zyutei Daizyujin (Mega Dragonzord) costume was extremely cumbersome. The Falconzord from the third season could also combine with the Ninja Megazord as a jetpack, or the Shogun Megazord as a set of chest-mounted guns.

*** The Banshee also gets an upgrade into the Banshee Norn: it ditches the giant beam rifle and claw hand in favor of a multi-purpose rifle and a booster on its back, as well as a greatly improved Psycoframe interface.

* ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'': The [[Anime/{{Macross}} FAST Pack System]][=/=][[{{Anime/Robotech}} Super Veritech]] gives the [[TransformingMecha Valkyrie fighters]] improved maneuverability in space and increased weapon loadouts. There was also the Armored Valkrie/Veritech which added armor and a whole lotta missile launchers, but rendered the mecha unable to transform out of battloid mode until it was jettisoned.
** HilariousInHindsight but the former is actually ''TruthInTelevision'': the real life F-15C was designed to be compatible with the optional "[[FunWithAcronyms Fuel And Sensor Tactical]]" equipment which is actually a fancy name for auxiliary fuel tanks designed to reduce air drag and radar signature when compared to regular external fuel tanks at the expense of being non-removable without a ground crew. They originally wanted to pack navigational and infrared targeting systems into it as well but that was scrapped. What makes it count is that when Macross came out, the F-15 was still brand new so Creator/ShojiKawamori might have used it for inspiration.
** The VF-25 Messiah fixed that problem with Armored Pack in ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', allowing it to transform into fighter and GERWALK modes while still using it. The VF-171's also wind up picking up special anti-Vajra modules late in the series run.
*** The Messiah does have three packs total, the Super Pack as well as the EW/ELINT version of Super Packs used to control several GHOST unmanned fighters, and the aforementioned Armored Packs. These Packs however, cannot be used within atmosphere and must be ejected prior to re-entry. They seem to be equipped with a "Smart" System allowing the Pack parts to coalesce into a single unit in low-orbit to be later retrieved when the [=VFs=] go back to outer space. This unfortunately also shows the limitation of the Pack system, as VF-25's main rival, VF-27 Lucifer has all its armament stored internally, giving it less ammo and total offensive capability overall, but gives it a Jack of All Trades trait, enhanced by its Cyborg-enhanced piloting system. Most importantly, it allows the pilot full range of offensive options even within atmosphere while the Messiah can only retaliate with its gunpod.
** Way back to the first Macross to take place chronologically in ''Anime/MacrossZero'', Roy's VF-1 is fitted with what seems to be the precursor to Armored Valkyrie. Instead of having missile launchers all over the place however, it is also fitted with Reactive Armor, the ballistics-defeating kind of armor used on modern day battle tanks. This allowed Roy to not only ambush the two main villains with Proto-Armored Valkyrie's massive missile arsenal, but also survive their team attack due to the reactive armor.
** In ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'' Fire Bomber eventually picked up booster units for the their custom fighters, enhancing their effect against the Protodeviln.
