* One of the ''SectorGeneral'' novels has a [[GeniusLoci living continent]] whose only manipulative tools are silvery symbiotic organisms of organic metal, which [[EmpathicWeapon respond to thought]] to reshape themselves. At close range, other sapient beings can override the vast but diffuse mental control of the landcreature.

** Of course, being Pandora's box the last form, 666, is Dante simply letting it drop open. If the chaos gauge is filled up this does absolutely insane damage, [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm for logical reasons]].

* ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' has a number of these. In the first one, the Sparda weapon (the ultimate form of the humble Force Edge) worked like this, changing from a sword, to a spear, to a sickle, depending on your moves. In the third game, the electric guitar would also morph into a sickle when swung. And in the fourth, of course, is the most ridiculous example of them all: Pandora's Box, which is a rare projectile weapon version of this - turning into a bowgun, missile-launcher, minigun, laser, buzzsaw, or even a ''[[MacrossMissileMassacre flying missile platform]]''!
** In fact, the description of Pandora's Box claims it can take on 666 different forms, although significantly fewer are actually usable in gameplay...

*** Mog from the sequel, ''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.

** When not being used, it's just a relatively harmless whip. But with the push of a button, it extends, hardens, and flattens into a sword.
** The shape of the blade can even be customized mid-battle, changing from a standard sword to a curved sickle in an instant.

** When Cyberknights got the PowerCreepPowerSeep treatment, one of the new abilities allow them to change the appearance of their signature weapon, the Psi-Sword. Changing its shape does not change its abilities, however, and maintaining the altered shape burns up the Cyberknight's attacks per round, so its actual usefulness is questionable.

* ''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,

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.
