** Matt Helms has a fire axe/flamethrower. As a transforming weapon, Nathan Copeland has mechanical arms / ''boombox rocket launcher''. Suda51 was so disappointed that he had to take Nathan out of the first VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes that he was the first boss worked into the second.

* An odd inversion of this turned up in the form of combat knives with a derringer concealed in the handle. They're hopelessly inaccurate beyond a couple of yards but probably quite effective for catching your opponent unaware.
* The knightly poleaxe. Favoured by [[KnightInShiningArmor knights]] on [[CombatPragmatist foot combat]]. Combines axe blade with spear point, spice for piercing armour, hook for tripping the opponent and butt-spike to special techniques.

* [[EpicFlail A morningstar]] combines the crushing power of the mace with the reach of the flail. They were also horrifically difficult to use and required the wearer to wear armored gauntlets to avoid breaking their arms when the ball bounced off the target.

** Bo-rifles, traditional weapons of the Lasan Honor Guard, are capable of being rifles for distance or electrified staffs with 11,000 volts for melee. They're noted as being insanely heavy for non-lasat to wield, though the human Agent Kallus has been known to not only do so but do it one-handed. The weapon serves as Zeb's WeaponOfChoice as well as Kallus' [[spoiler: until he loses it due to the events of the season 3 finale.]]

* Every weapon in ''{{Painkiller}}'' has a drastically different second firing mode, which makes the seemingly modest five-weapon arsenal much more versatile (it's even possible to combine the primary and secondary firing modes with some weapons). To wit, in ''Painkiller'' you have a weedwhacker that fires laser beams, a machine gun that shoots rockets, a grenade launcher that shoots foot-long wooden poles, and [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation of course]], a gun that shoots shurikens and lightning.

Sometimes, when you combine two weapons, you get something with a completely new set of properties - like combining a gun and a sword into [[AbnormalAmmo a gun that shoots swords]]. Or you might get a more traditional SwissArmyWeapon - for instance, a gun that can ''turn into'' a sword. But the rest of the time, you get a Mix-and-Match Weapon - two weapons combined that retain the uses and elements of both. The classic example is a [[BayonetYa bayonet]], which is nothing more than a knife strapped to a rifle, creating a weapon that can shoot ''or'' stab at will. Contrast MorphWeapon.
