* The liquid-metal T-1000 from ''Terminator2JudgmentDay'' could turn its arms into blades -- handy for killing people when it was imitating someone who wouldn't be carrying a firearm.

** Mystique can do this with some effort, but usually doesn't because she still has organs and needs to remember where they are. Instead, for example, she'll shift most of the muscles of her upper body into her right arm just as she delivers a punch, thereby increasing its power. She's also been known to hide guns ''inside herself''. At one point she even gave herself two heads and four arms to fight on two fronts at once.

* Chachamaru in ''MahouSenseiNegima'' can transform her forearms into blades or even guns. Judging from his ability to mimic other people exactly, Albireo can likely use his pactio item on his larynx. Evangeline also enjoys a good shape-shift here and there (claws are her favorite).

* Gavrill from ''FrankenFran'' can shapeshift her body partly or entirely into, among other things, deadly weapons. She mostly uses it to off people who are much weaker than her. When faced with either a lot of opponents or just one large one, she prefers to transform into a huge wolf-like creature and let out a real bloodbath.
* Most monstrels in ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' experience this, including second-in-command [[ScytheOfDoom Kirya Yoshi]]. Others get to HulkOut.

* ''{{GURPS}}: Magic'' has a whole set of spells called Partial Shapeshifting that allow the caster to transform body parts into enhanced versions of animal ones.
* ''{{Exalted}}'' has several of these, but the two primary examples would be the Lunars and Alchemicals. The former does it spiritually and organically, while the latter does it technologically; the former is more flexible, but the latter can grow actual weapons up to and including magi-tech artillery pieces.

** The official explaination for male-only marauders is that they wanted them all to be bare-chested. Yes, ''all'' of them. But they wanted to avoid an explicit Mature rating; same reason Slaaneshi daemons (notoriously naked) are in short supply and covered up more-than-usual.

* ''TabletopGame/Cybergeneration'' allowed a character class with their bodies so infused with nanomachines they could make their limbs form various tools, and melee weapons; should they advance sufficiently, forming a gun around a handful of ammunition was not really improbable.
