* In medieval and renaissance Europe, a bewildering variety of polearms was used for different purposes, with combinations of axe blades for chopping, spear heads for stabbing, hooks for dismounting, etc. The tendency of fantasy [=RPGs=] to try to use ''all'' of them was parodied in an issue of The Space Gamer, published by Creator/SteveJacksonGames in 1985. One entry into a "Write a table for generating something useless" contest was a "Random Polearm Generation" table. It starts simply enough, with things like "ox tongue", "bill hook", and "glaive", but it works its way up to such nonsense as "glaive glaive" and "glaive glaive glaive guisarme glaive". Since that last one is seemingly inspired by the [[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus Spam Sketch]], Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick later borrowed it for their [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0136.html parody of the Cheese Shop Sketch]].

* ''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.

* Apparently, in the mid-1800s the Norwegian post office had an issue with robbers attacking their mail carriers and, in 1846, decided that a good solution would be [[https://youtu.be/WyrE3FSU01w an unusually-elegant two-barrel percussion-cap knife/smoothbore pistol.]]

** Considering who created the series, it's unsurprising that only a few weapons don't fit this bill: Jaune's Crocea Mors (a sword and collapsible shield), Melanie's bladed shoes, Miltia's claws, Neo's parasol (which is instead a [[SwordCane different trope]]), Yatsutashi's greatsword, and Coco's minigun (its handbag form merely being its compact form...that's just as viable a weapon).

** 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 NoMoreHeroes that he was the first boss worked into the second.
