** The 3rd Edition of ''TabletopGame/{{Necromunda}}'' introduces a number of new forms of combi-weapon that reflect the nature of the Hoses that use them including the Escher [[PoisonedWeapon needler]]-bolter, that utilises the pharmaceuticals of the [[AmazonBrigade female dominated House]], and the more rugged and brutal [[UnskilledButStrong Goliath]] [[PlasmaCannon plasma]]-stub combi-pistol.

* 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.

* ''Literature/MyVampireOlderSisterAndZombieLittleSister'': Taori wields a combination of an oversized, triple-bladed chainsaw and a crossbow. The chainsaw is powerful enough to cut down large trees easily, while the crossbow shoots bundles of bolts that separate after firing to bombard an area. The whole thing weighs over 70 kg, and she can only use it due to having SuperStrength.



* Hook swords. The hooks let the wielder catch weapons or limbs, the spiked pommel makes up for the loss of the blade tip, and the knuckle guard protects the hand - plus, you may as well sharpen that too.
