* ''VideoGame/JakAndDaxter'': Jak's Morph Gun. Really, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the name says it all]].all]]; the base gun morphs with the application of mods. Through the use of mods it can become a shotgun, a rifle, a machine gun or a rocket launcher. Gets even ''more'' abilities in the third game, where it can fire grenades, beams of electricity, attack saucers, or [[NukeEm just plain ol' nukes]], among other options.

* Technically, the Noble Phantasm of [[spoiler:Lu Bu]], Rani's Berserker in ''[[FateExtra Fate/EXTRA]]'' is one of these. The NP can switch between five different forms, however, because Berserker is under Mad Enchantment, he doesn't have enough frame of mind to use it to its full potential. The only forms he can use in the game are a pike and a bow that launches said pike as the arrow. The other three forms are a mystery.

* Every device in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' has at least three forms, sometimes changing its weapon class. As a bonus, one of these forms is always its user's own TransformationTrinket, so there's no need to invest in more items.

** Obliterators use this trope and/or a combination of ShapeshifterWeapon and SwissArmyAppendage: They can sprout/are welded to a wide assortment of weapons to counter any enemy type (such as flamers for infantry, plasma cannons for armor, and lascannons for vehicles) from their arms.

Mutilators are the same deal, only with melee weapons where the Obliterators have ranged ones.

** The Yncarne, the [[GodInHumanForm Avatar]] of the [[SpaceElves Eldar]] God of the Dead from ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'', wields [[NamedWeapon Vilith-zhar, the Sword of Souls]]. This powerful Cronesword is able to transform into any weapon that suits the Yncarne's immediate needs, from a {{BFS}} to [[DualWielding a pair of]] [[BifurcatedWeapon smaller blades]], and anything in between. To reflect this, the Yncarne model can be constructed with either a single large blade or two smaller ones.

* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', Laevateinn is revealed to be this, having previously been a sword, a wand, and for the last millennium and a half [[spoiler: a phoenix feather]]. No one's entirely sure, but it's hinted [[EmpathicWeapon to have a mind of its own]].

* In "The Soft Weapon", a 1967 Literature/KnownSpace short story by Creator/LarryNiven, introduced the TropeMaker; the titular "soft weapon" is a combination SonicStunner, telescope, [[FrickinLaserBeams Frickin Laser Gun]], personal rocket, and [[EnergyAbsorption Energy Absorber]], all accessible via a sliding switch and complete with [[TalkingWeapon onboard AI]]. Hidden functions include a ''horizon-range [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Hiroshima-scale matter-to-energy converter]]'' and a SelfDestructMechanism.

* The ''WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "The Slaver Weapon" involves Spock, Sulu and Uhura held captive by a crew of Kzinti (the episode was written by Larry Niven, adapted from one his own Literature/KnownSpace stories) while carrying a case of artifacts from a long-lost race called the Slavers. One of the artifacts turns out to be a hand-held weapon that can change form with a twist of a dial, from an energy pistol similar to a phaser, to a telescope, to a vocalizing computer, to a long-range weapon that carries the impact of a small nuclear bomb. Fortunately for the rest of the galaxy, it also has a self-destruct (which the vocalizing computer tricked the Kzinti into triggering). Sulu hypothesized that the device was used for espionage instead of combat, since the average grunt wouldn't need all those settings.
