Basically it's a device that fuses multiple objects together, kind of like FusionDance. Works by either shooting a beam or placing the objects into a machine. May also work in reverse. Sometimes, the effect is unintentional and probably not the main purpose of the device; TeleportersAndTransporters are particularly prone to becoming Merging Machines when [[TeleporterAccident something goes wrong]], especially in cases such as TeleFrag.

* Mocked in ''VideoGame/NoTimeToExplain'' for the final level. One of the Yous suggests wielding both the beam cannon and the shotgun at the same time to enable a DoubleJump, and this is somehow taken by one of the other Yous to fuse that You and Stunt Man You into one being who wields both. The fused character's profile page is even him ''screaming in agony''.

* 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.

* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'': In the ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S04E24ManosTheHandsOfFate "Manos" The Hands of Fate]]'' episode, Joel's invention exchange is the Cartuner, a device that takes two newspaper comicstrips and combines them into something funnier than the source material. ''"Comicstrip/{{Ziggy}} had Comicstrip/{{Garfield}} neutered?!"''

* 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.
