* 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 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.

* ''Literature/QuantumGravity'': When Lila gets these, it is explicitly noted as odd. On the other hand, she's magic-stained and has elementals floating around in there, so what do you expect?

Added DiffLines:

* In ''TabletopGame/HcSvntDracones'' the half-mechanical, half-synthetic biological Cogsune have modular arms, legs, and tails that they can swap out on the fly. And the "standard" limbs can transform into the more specialized ones, many of which have reality warping abilities. i.e. the "basic" tail acts as a BagOfHolding.

* In Robert Rodriguez' ''Film/PlanetTerror'', RoseMcGowan's character, a go-go dancer named Cherry Darling, loses a leg early in the movie and has it replaced by a peg, and later, a [[SwissArmyWeapon machine gun/grenade launcher]]. That's right, it's a gun leg. RuleOfCool keeps it from exploding from all the dirt that would get packed into the barrel.
