* An odd inversion of this turned up in recent years, in the form of combat knives with a derringer concealed in the handle. Hopelessly inaccurate beyond a couple of yards but probably quite effective for catching your opponent unaware.

* In ''ComicBook/TarotWitchOfTheBlackRose'' #63, guest star [[TheHunter Vera Vanguard]] uses a pair of katanas with full-size pistols for handles. These look totally ridiculous and impractical, just like her {{Stripperiffic}} outfit.

* The superhero Chevalier from ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' has his signature cannonblade.



* Monty does it again with ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}''. It is used so much, ''Creator/RoosterTeeth'' has decided to create a shirt saying "It's also a gun." This trope applies to most of the cast:

* ''{{Literature/Redwall}}'': Most Badger Lords get a ForgingScene. ''The Long Patrol'' goes into some detail on the many ways Lady Cregga Rose Eyes' brand-new hooked axpike can hurt vermin.

*** Chaos Obliterators were mutated by a Warp-infused technovirus that fused them with their weapons, allowing them to sprout new weapons adapted for whatever it is they're facing.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals'':
** The GLA specializes in this, as their units are hopelessly outmatched by modern US or circa-1970s Chinese units:
*** The [[ActionBomb Bomb Truck]] can be loaded with high-explosives, with anthrax or, (unlike the Scud Launcher, which can switch between both with every missile launched) both at the same time, though the cost of outfitting each truck gets prohibitive.
*** Technicals, Toxin Tractors, Quad Cannons and Marauders can run over the wreckage of enemy vehicles and recycle the parts to improve their own armaments. Most dramatic for the Technicals, who go from machine gun to missile launcher and the Marauders, who eventually get a second main gun.
*** Scorpion tanks can be given a surprisingly high-damage rocket against vehicles, while their shells can contain anthrax to greatly increase their efficiency against infantry.
*** The Angry Mob is armed with scavenged pistols (which can be upgraded to AK47s), MolotovCocktails and ''rocks''. And yet, they are scarily good at tearing down buildings.
** The Chinese Overlord tank can equip a bunker for five soldiers, an Antiair and AntiInfantry gatling turret or a propaganda tower that slowly heals all troops around it in addition to its twin main guns. In the expansion, the Emperor comes with a turret pre-installed, leaving room for another upgrade.
** The US Humvee starts with a machine gun, but can be outfitted with a flying machine-gun-wielding Battle Drone (like all US ground vehicles), a missile launcher, and as loaded infantry fire out the windows, can fire missiles, grenades, sniper rounds...
* ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'': Some units have multiple types of guns mounted to deal with different targets, though only vehicles can use them simultaneously.
** Imperial Guard, SpaceMarine tanks (and their stolen ork equivalent) have a main gun and side-mounted heavy bolters/lascannons.
** Despite being an artillery piece and thus not belonging anywhere near the frontline, the Basilisk has a front-facing heavy bolter in addition to its gigantic Earthshaker cannon.
** The Tau Commander's XV-22 armor turns him into a JackOfAllStats, giving him a flamethrower against infantry that gets too close, missile launchers against structures and vehicles, and a railgun against everything, [[MoreDakka and while able to use all three at once,]] the equipment needs to be rebought if he's killed.
** Obliterators use heavy bolters against infantry, plasma guns against heavy infantry, and lascannons against vehicles and buildings, all from the same multi-barreled ArmCannon that was fused with their body.

** 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, Cardinal's mace, Neo's parasol (which is instead a [[SwordCane different trope]]), Yatsutashi's greatsword, Coco's minigun (its handbag form merely being its compact form...[[HandbagOfHurt that's just as viable a weapon]]), and Ironwood's revolver (admittedly a [[HandCannon very large]] revolver).

* Red-5's [=HEP=] Cannon in Manga/GingaKikoutaiMajesticPrince. It can serve as a [[MoreDakka rapid fire rifle]], a WaveMotionTuningFork with [[ChainsawGood a chainsaw on each prong]], and can even lay SpaceMines!
