* Though not primarily intended as a weapon, the Po Peil Fishing Artifact (a parody of the Popeil Pocket Fisherman) is an ancient artifact made by a Precursor race that contains everything an interstellar fishing enthusiast might desire, in one compact device. This includes complex scanning equipment to determine food safety, a vast recipe database, essentially unbreakable hooks and lines, harpoon-shaped force beams and tractor beams for subduing and retrieving particularly stubborn quarry, and even a full suite of functions to terraform a world into an ocean planet and stock it with fish-like beings, should no such planet be handy . . . which is a bit inconvenient if you happen to live on the target planet. Unfortunately, its recipes (and its operating instructions) are all in a language no one has spoken or read for at least a billion years.

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': On two separate occasions, both when fighting [[MadeOfIron Lash]], Mack expresses his desire to own and use "a shotgun-axe combination of some sort". In the episode "Watchdogs", Mack jury-rigs a shotgun-axe combo weapon by duct-taping a meat cleaver to the end of it, and by the time of the season finale he's finally crafted a proper shotgun-axe.

* In ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', Kamatari has a giant SinisterScythe, already an AwesomeButImpractical weapon, which has a very heavy iron ball at the end of a very long chain. It's intended to act as a counterbalance to allow use of the absurdly large scythe, but of course it ends up being a weapon in its own right.
** Interestingly, this is a scaled-up version of [[TruthInTelevision a real weapon]] called the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kusarigama kusarigama]].

* In ''ComicBook/TarotWitchOfTheBlackRose'' #63, guest star [[HunterOfMonsters Vera Vanguard]] uses a pair of katanas with full-size pistols for handles. These look totally ridiculous and impractical, just like her {{Stripperiffic}} outfit.
** If you can believe it, [[RealityIsUnrealistic during World War II Japan really made a handful of officers' katanas with 7mm pistols for hilts.]] Check out the "Real Life" section for how well ''that'' turned out.

** Many magical weapons in ''TabletopGames/{{Rifts}}'', such as rune or [[MagiTek techno-wizard]] weapons, can also be used as both ranged weapons and melee, with both also having other features such as deflector shields or poison, and the ability to use spells (rune weapons having a varying amount to cast, while techno-wizard creations usually end up with a specific set which requires the creator's or another techno-wizards' work to upgrade). One example is a sword introduced in ''Federation of Magic'', with massive damage, and the ability to increase it ''a lot'', protection for the user, and the ability to fire charged particle beams.

* ''VideoGame/RuneScape'' has the [[EpicFlail Ivandis Flail,]] a silver sickle on a chain attached to a long rod. It IS unwieldy and is meant to be - it was devised as a weapon against mind-reading [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampyres]], and, unlike all other silver weapons, works PRECISELY BECAUSE neither side knows where exactly the sickle will end up, thus not letting the vampyre perfectly dodge the strike every single time.
** It also is a Mix-and-Match Weapon in a different, more straight sense. Silver sickles by themselves are used as a focus for casting a certain spell, one that causes select scenery objects to produce items. The rods themselves are used for a different spell, used to hold juvenile vampyres in place. The Ivandis Flail can do both.
