* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'', Edd constructed one of these, known as a 'Thingamajig', which was apparently capable of dispensing anything the user needed at the time, [[Hammerspace including things too big to fit inside of it]]. However, he only built one, and the Eds tried to scam the kids by demonstrating it and then selling boxes full of worthless junk that they claimed contained more of them.

** It's made of solid water. Don't ask how that works, and keep in mind that this is a show with coins that make you leap like an insect, and shirts that weigh two tons and are indestructible.

** One of the crazier examples is [[spoiler:[[MustHaveCaffeine Dr. Oobleck]]'s thermos, which turns into a [[BatterUp baseball bat]] and [[FireBreathingWeapon flamethrower]]...though that does make one wonder how there's any room for coffee in there...]]

** The Comicbook/BlueBeetle's scarab. When it bonded to Jaime Reyes, the [[LegacyCharacter latest Blue Beetle]], it gave him alien armor that can sprout energy weapons out of his forearms, or turn his entire arms from the elbows down into energy weapons if he needs something of a higher caliber. Also saw blades, gripping claws, and smaller extra arms when he needs to grasp more than two things at a time. He can fly with wings, with a rocket mounted on his back, or, in a heavy storm, with a surfboard attached to his feet.

Added DiffLines:

** As ComicBook/RedRobin Tim modified his TelescopingStaff so that pressing on a discrete panel and twisting causes a blade to extend from one end. He only uses it as a last resort however as the entire reason he chose a staff as his weapon of choice was for its non-lethal applications.

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

** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': The Gashacon weapons wielded by the Riders all have multiple modes: Ex-Aid and Genm have hammers with extending sword blades (and Ex-Aid's {{Super Mode}}s uses a sword with axe and gun functions), Snipe's handgun can fold out into ad sniper rifle, Lazer's bow can split into paired sickles, Para-DX's axe can spin around to reveal a gun barrel, and the Gashacon Bugvisor used by multiple characters is a TransformationTrinket that can be mounted on the arm to be wielded as a chainblade or a rapid-fire beam gun. The only Gashacon weapon that doesn't change form completely is Brave's sword, which [[ElementalWeapon swaps between]] [[KillItWithFire fire]] and [[AnIcePerson ice]] modes.
** ''Series/KamenRiderBuild'': The title character's Drill Crusher is a [[ThisIsADrill drill-shaped]] sword that can be swapped into a gun, while the Kaizoku Hassyar is a bow with bladed limbs that lets it function as a melee weapon and the Fullbottle Buster is a large sword that can turn into a cannon. Cross-Z Charge and Grease have the arm-mounted Twin Breaker, which has beam gun and PileBunker modes.



** ''Series/UchuSentaiKyuranger'' takes ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'''s idea and runs with it: the nine core Kyurangers wield the variable Kyu The Weapon, which consists of three parts (a grip with an extending handle and two blades, one dagger-like and one axe-like) which can be configured into a greatsword, a spear, a claw, a crossbow, a handaxe, a scythe, a rapier, a gun and a shortsword. Of note is the fact that while everyone has their own WeaponOfChoice, there's nothing stopping them from using another form other than personal preference[[note]]For example, in his first battle with the team Balance starts off using the Kyu Sword but finds it hard to wield and reconfigures it into the Kyu Crossbow[[/note]]; the {{Sixth Ranger}}s follow that trope by having their own unique weapons.

* Defied in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater''. If you talk to SIGINT about Snake's knife, he'll mention that he turned down the Rambo-style survival knife SIGINT had picked for him because the hollow handle meant the blade/grip junction was more likely to break in combat. Snake instead chose a sturdier full-tang knife, and packed the miscellaneous survival gear into a separate pouch.



* Many modern military knives feature a mini compass in the pommel, which unscrews to reveal a mini survival kit.

As the example from ''Metal Gear Solid 3'' points out, actual military issue and similar knives never have this feature, because the small, short tang is substantially weaker than one that extends through the grip, making them too fragile for serious combat/survival situations. The survival knives that ''are'' made for that kind of duty tend to put the supplies in a pouch on the sheath; [[BoringButPractical less cool-looking, but a lot more useful]].

* Above gunblades aside, ''ShinMegamiTensei: SoulHackers'' gave us the GUMP, or Gun ''[=COMPuter=]''. The computer lets you summon and control demons to do your bidding, and the gun lets you shoot things, as opposed to the other way around.

** Before any of those three, [[Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger [=MammothRanger=] ]] had an axe that turned into a laser cannon (a concept that would be re-used for the U.S. exclusive [[Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue Titanium Ranger's]] weapon, and the entire [[Series/SeijuuSentaiGingaman Gingaman]] team had the Mechanical Blade Kiba (or Transdaggers for PowerRangersLostGalaxy), which has SIX different modes: fang (its default form, which is used both for one of the team's original finishing moves and for activating and controlling their mecha), short sword, claw, laser crossbow, a pair of daggers and a longbow.
