** Buccaneer at Fort Briggs is short one arm. Being from Fort Briggs, the prime center of [[BadAss badassery]] in Amestris, he naturally has several automail weapon/arms, including one which is more or less a pair of {{chainsaw|Good}}s attached to his shoulder.

* Japeth the mountain goat from the film ''{{Hoodwinked}}'' has an incredible number of detatchable antlers that can be used for every practical purpose: including holding his car keys (which is strange since he doesn't own a car), a set can be used as a bottle opener, a set used like a coat rack, and even a set with helicopter blades that ''allow him to fly''.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', Peridot's limb enhancers can do a whole load of things, as long as the fingers are positioned right. They can form screens (which in turn contain her data and logs, and can operate other gem tech), helicopter rotor blades which she can use to fly and hover, an ArmCannon, a tractor beam, and they can emit bursts of electricity. She also occasionally uses them to emote what she wants (ie: turning them into arrows while pointing at something she wants Steven to fix). When not in use, they act as regular hands.

* Phantom, the BigBad from ''{{MAR}}'', has all of his most powerful [[MagiTek ÄRMs]] ''grafted onto his left arm'', which is wrapped up with cloth straps to keep it hidden. It's not exactly surprising when he reveals it, but it is ''awesome''.

** And Lan Fan loses her arm and has it replaced by automail, but because she's a ninja, it has a retractable blade.

* [[ScaryBlackMan Gray]] from ''GunsmithCats'' got his hand blown off the first time he ran into the heroine Rally Vincent. When next we see him he uses a hook when he want to be relatively inconspicuous, but swaps in out for a [[BladeBelowTheShoulder two-foot long spring-loaded steel machete]] he can launch at will with enough force to punch through a car door.

* Dag in LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/TheSharingKnife Sharing Knife]]'' series. Unlike most fictional Swiss Army Appendage users, the book is not shy about the problems it causes, from straps going loose in battle, to the time it takes to switch arms, to the additional strain it puts on his body to have to support the unnatural stresses.

* Barrett in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' replaces his amputated right arm with an ArmCannon. There are also several weapons for him that aren't guns, but scissors or blades. And a [[NerfArm boxing glove]]. In ''[[Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren Advent Children]],'' after he has become a rich oil magnate, he gets an arm that can be changed from normal prosthetic hand to machinegun to laser cannon, etc., at will, without the necessity of detaching it.

* The main character in ''The Potter and the Mould'' possessed limited shapeshifting abilities which allowed him to turn his hand into all sorts of useful doohickies, from a crowbar to a screwdriver to an indestructable container for some pretty powerful acid.

* The old Megadrive/Genesis game ''CyborgJustice'' gave you (and level bosses) the ability to rip arms off enemies and swap them with yours. The options included a [[ChainsawGood circular saw]], RocketPunch and [[FrickinLaserBeams Lasers]]. Or you could just throw it back at them.
