* Although not used for said purposes during the story, the Seventh Scripture in {{Tsukihime}} has numerous abilities. The basic redesigned form made it from an antireincarnation weapon into something that can also fire holy harpoons like bullets. That's instory still, though. Some mentioned other uses note that the weight can be doubled if you add all the various optional pieces to it. Also comes with the spirit of a teenage girl with hooves and strange ears. Order now and we'll include the customized industrial model with four random dots on it!

** The fourth installment in the series introduces the Charge Axe, a weapon that starts off as a sword and shield, but can be joined together into a massive blade that makes even the greatswords look rather modest by comparison.

*** To a much lesser extent in the Insect Glaive, Introduced in the same game. It looks like a simple BladeOnAStick coupled with a large friendly bug, but the glaive also incorporates a pneumatic gun that can be used to fire pheromone pellets to guide the Kinsect's attack, or to catapult the hunter into the air.

The only team members who don't use this weapon are the team's [[SixthRanger sixth rangers]].

* Ellen Ripley from ''Film/{{Aliens}}'' builds herself one in her LockAndLoadMontage, jury-rigging together a [[FireBreathingWeapon flamethrower]] with an [[MoreDakka assault rifle]], the latter of which already comes with a grenade launcher. Plus a tracking device on top.
* In ''Film/ArthurAndTheInvisibles'', Betameche has a swiss-army-knife-type-implement that is everything from a knife to a grappling hook to a bubble blower.
* In ''Film/BeverlyHillsCopIII'', Serge's "Survival Boutique" sells a combination [[{{BFG}} minigun]], microwave oven, rocket launcher, portable TV, flamethrower, beverage cooler...
* The Roy Orbison movie ''The Fastest Guitar Alive'' included a guitar that played perfectly... and shot bullets. While that is only two functions in comparison to the dozens that other devices in this list show, the sheer impossibility of a single device that both fires bullets accurately (without a trigger mechanism) AND does not need any more tuning that a normal guitar qualifies.



* The Shaw Brothers feature ''Jade Tiger'' was arguably the king of this trope. The villainous Four had a sword that had two smaller swords inside of it, and the last one was also a bomb. The movie's hero had a staff that could be turned into a spear or gigantic nunchucks. At the beginning of the film a blind monk takes out his glass eyes and throws them as grenades.

In the weapons department, he can tie it to a stick (there are holes in the hilt to thread the cord through) and make a spear. It also has a compass, thread and needle for stitches, fishing hooks for fishing, waterproof matches and two screwdrivers (which form the hilt).
* In ''Film/HotShotsPartDeux'', the main character has an impressive looking knife which has built-in chainsaw, wire-cutter, and drinking straw.

* ''Film/SpyKids 2'' had a watch that could do anything ''except'' tell time.

* While more of a weapon ''system'' than a weapon, the Mobile Infantry's powered armor from Robert Heinlein's ''Literature/StarshipTroopers'' probably applies. The narrator describes his suit as coming with a flamethrower with multiple settings, a rocket launcher with multiple forms of warhead (including peewee nukes), a wide variety of high-explosive bombs/grenades, and presumably some sort of standard bullet-firing weapon, though he never explicitly uses one at all during the same mission. Not to mention that little experimental toy. "I'm a thirty-second bomb! I'm a thirty-second bomb! Twenty-nine!... Twenty-eight!..."
