* One of the ChooseYourOwnAdventure books based off of ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' called "Monster Mix-Up" used this as its primary gimmick. Bowser has a device called the Monster Mixer, which looks like a [[http://www.mariowiki.com/File:Mix.jpg giant flying egg-beater]], that he uses to fuse his minions together into more dangerous troops. The ending has Princess Peach consider unfusing them with a device based upon a soup strainer.

* One Treehouse of Horror episode from ''TheSimpsons'', where after Homer buys a matter transporter from Professor Frink (and uses it around the house to save him walking from one room to another... though it takes more effort to move the transporter booths), Bart uses it to fuse with a fly, hoping it will give him superpowers. But instead of Brundlefly, he gets the 1958 Fly (Bart with a fly head, the fly with Bart's).

* Played with in ''VideoGame/DayOfTheTentacle'', where, at the end, the three {{Player Character}}s have to use a single Chron-O-John to travel through time, chasing the Purple Tentacle. They come out apparently fused into a single monstrosity with three heads. Later, Dr. Fred uses an X-ray machine to scan them, revealing that they're all separate people stuck in a single shirt. Embarrassed, they separate.

* Wapol of ''Franchise/OnePiece'' had this as one of his sub-powers. While the Munch-Munch Devil Fruit gave him the power to fuse himself with anything he ate, he could also fuse eaten objects with each other, creating an entirely new object. This trope ends up being [[ExploitedTrope exploited]] as he ends up profitting by promoting the fused objects as toys and selling them.

* The ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'' has [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-914 SCP-914]], [[InSeriesNickname "The Clockworks"]]. Putting two items in the input booth and running the machine on "fine" (the setting for turning things UpToEleven) or "very fine" (typically produces something that goes BeyondTheImpossible relative to the input) tends to yield outputs that combine aspects from both inputs; in one of the side-stories, 914 was fed a [[RedShirt D-class]] and a 64-core supercomputer multiple times, with outputs including sixty-four small robot spiders [[{{Squick}} with human faces]] and a human with a supercomputing brain (which was the desired output). In addition, one of its other settings, "coarse," often functions as an {{Inversion}}, separating objects into their component parts.

* ''TheFly'' is arguably based around an accidental version. Many parodies and homages tend to fall into this trope by having multiple "mixings" take place.
