* ''Manga/FlameOfRecca'': Kaoru's madōgu is a "puzzle weapon" and can be assembled five different ways; given how the weapon looks after the changes, how exactly this happens is unknown, as one form is basically a lance and another involve a long chain.
* the chain was shown to be hidden inside the Lance's shaft at one point, so most of the pieces are actually accounted for. The Bow and Arrow, however, is inexplicable on a lot of levels,

** Kanaya's in particular is a callback to ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'', where object/weapon duality was a running gag.

A RuleOfCool weapon that can {{shapeshift|ing}} into different forms for different situations. Generally magical, but can be explained with {{Nanomachines}} or some other scientific flavour of AppliedPhlebotinum instead. It might be guided by magic or ElectronicTelepathy, or even be an EmpathicWeapon with a mind of its own. Whatever the case, it tends to be significantly cooler than any boring old stays-the-same-all-the-time weapon.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', quite famously so. TheHeroine Ruby's Crescent Rose can transform between a {{BFG}} and a SinisterScythe. TheSmartGuy Blake's Gambol Shroud can transform between a ninja sword and a machine pistol. TheAce[=/=][[HeroOfAnotherStory HeroineOfAnotherStory]] Pyrrha Nikos has a weapon that can transforms between a short Greek-style sword, a spear, and a long rifle. And IneffectualSympatheticVillain Junior has a huge missile launcher that can transform into a hefty baseball bat.

It's actually at the point where it's unusual to see a weapon that doesn't transform in some way.

* The magic weapons in ''Anime/DogDays'' have the power to assume whatever form the wielder desires; protagonist Cinque tends to use his as a SimpleStaff because he knows ''Bojutsu'', but he's also shown transforming it into a shield, a surfboard, and even a [[MundaneUtility Frisbee]]. However, for some reason he can't change it into a sword [[spoiler:until the climax of the first season, where a demonic entity goes on a rampage and threatens Princess Millhiore's life]].

* The Great Weapon Godslayer in ''{{Dragaera}}''. However, while she's sentient, there doesn't seem to be much logic behind the forms she uses, much to the annoyance of her wielder.

** Keyblades do this in two different ways - first, swapping keychains around gives it a new "look" based on a certain world or character, with different bonuses in terms of strength / reach / magic. When the ''Birth by Sleep'' characters showed up, things started getting crazier.

** Now in the [[UpdatedRerelease Final Mix version]] of ''Birth by Sleep'', the new bonus boss [[spoiler:No Heart, the data of Master Xehanort in his prime,]] can change his Keyblade into shin guards, a large claw, an arm cannon, a floating shield and even a large pair of wings.
