* ''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.

** Taken UpToEleven by minor character Velvet, whose weapon allows her to create HardLight copies of other peoples' weapons. She demonstrates its versatility quite well when she first busts it out at the end of Season 3, quickly shifting between all four of Team RWBY's weapons to take down a MiniMecha.

* ''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy'' and ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaSteel'' give the main five Rangers a common weapon that can turn into one of five forms, each Ranger having his or her preferred mode instead of a personal Power Weapon, but ''not'' being totally averse to changing it if the situation calls for it. Curiously, in ''Series/PowerRangersJungleFury,'' Yellow and Blue have weapons that ''look'' like they're made of identical moving parts and could be switched to each other's preferred modes, and the toys ''definitely'' can, but it never happens in the show.

* ''Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger'' gives the team the Karakuri Hengen, a shuriken-shaped weapon that can become a blade, bow, or claw. ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaSteel'' gives the weapon an extra function by turning it into the season's TransformationTrinket[[note]]In ''Ninninger'' the Rangers transform with their {{Cool Sword}}s, but Bandai asked Saban to change it [[MerchandiseDriven to sell more toys]][[/note]].
* ''Series/UchuSentaiKyuranger'' operates on the same principle as Den-O above with Kyu The Weapon, the primary weapon for the core team. It consists of three parts (a sword blade, an axe blade, and a grip/beam gun) that can be configured to produce a total of nine different weapons. {{Sixth Ranger}}s Ryu Commander and Hou'ou Soldier each have their own unique weapons, while quasi-Sixth Koguma Skyblue just uses the same weapon as his BigBrotherMentor Sasori Orange.

Added DiffLines:

** Dave also has a morph weapon, his sword Caledscratch. It's a bit different, however, in that instead of morphing between two completely different objects, it morphs to different stages in it's timeline, i.e. newly forged, whole, broken, rusted, etc. He uses it to get around a mistake he made early in the comic where he accidentally limited himself to only using broken swords.

* Later entries of the ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' series have the Switch Axe weapon class, a "high-tech" armament that can transform using a special phial from a [[AnAxeToGrind massive axe]] into a [[{{BFS}} massive sword.]] Also, Monster Hunter 4 introduces another transforming weapon class, the Charge Axe, which adds a separated sword-and-shield form to the mix.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' is filled with this. Lightning's gunblade, which is either a gun or a sword, but not both at the same time like [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Squall's]]. Sazh's matched pair of pistols can be combined together into a sniper rifle of sorts for some attack animations.
** Mog from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'' can change between a bow and his moogle form. Then on top of that, while in weapon form, the bow can be closed to form into a sword, in a mechanical method similar to many of the weapons from Final Fantasy XIII.
*** And on top of that, we have Noel's dual swords. Aside from working as two swords (and having a built in sheath for the smaller sword on the larger flame shaped sword), they can also be combined together to form a spear/glaive, and that then can morph slightly more into a javelin form.

* In ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'' (second book of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''), we find out that a true [[AbsurdlySharpBlade Shardblade]], being wielded by its bonded Radiant, can morph into whatever shape its wielder desires, including non-bladed weapons like hammers and shields. [[spoiler:This is because the Blades are actually [[NatureSpirit spren]]. The ones everyone else is using are dead, but the ones the Radiants use are alive]]. In Literature/{{Edgedancer}}, we find out that they don't have to be weapons per se, though apparently any points will still be AbsurdlySharpBlades which makes a Shardfork [[AwesomeButImpractical impractical]] as an eating utensil.
