* The [[http://world.guns.ru/assault/oicw2.jpg XM-29 SABR]], more commonly known as the OICW, was designed to complement the M16 family; originally, it was supposed to replace the M16 entirely. It features a laser telemeter, a fire control computer, an IR/NV camera scope with adjustable zoom, a 5.56 mm carbine, a magazine-fed 20mm grenade launcher [later 25mm] with user-set fusing, and an optional bayonet. Which must have been like trying to stab someone to death with a television set.

* The Devices of ''Franchise/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' have different forms to suit the needs of the mage or knight. The Devices of the two leads have the most. Nanoha [[SimpleStaff has a staff]] that [[{{BFG}} reconfigures into a blaster]] that [[BladeOnAStick turns into a spear]] that [[AttackDrone releases four attack drones]]. Fate has an [[AnAxeToGrind axe]] (technically a [[BladeOnAStick bardiche]]) that [[SinisterScythe flips open to reveal a scythe]] that grows into a {{BFS}} that [[BifurcatedWeapon splits into two sabres]] which she combine into an even bigger {{BFS}}.
* The puppets used by Sand ninja in ''{{Naruto}}'' are gigantic Swiss Army Weapons, being, well, a huge collection and weapons and tricks gathered up into the shape of a human or animal puppet. Sometimes, the puppets even have combo attacks.

* In ''BusouRenkin'', this is standard practice - unlike in most {{shonen}}, becoming stronger isn't about reaching [[TimeToUnlockMoreTruePotential new]] [[MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours power]] [[SoLastSeason levels]], but about finding different and creative uses for the weapon you have. A later character, for example, has tiny homing [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning chakrams]] for weapons. In addition to controlling them, he can use them to enhance his punches, ride on them like wheels, or even propel himself through the water by spinning them.

* The Byakuen from ''Manga/CodeGeassOzTheReflection'' is a near-literal example: its right arm is a multi-weapon complex shaped like a giant Swiss army knife, which contains holds two {{Hot Blade}}s (which can combine into [[ShearMenace giant scissors]] or a single large blade), [[ThisIsADrill a drill]], and a [[MagneticWeapons railcannon]] in addition to a standard right hand.

** A slightly more subtle version is the Shot Selector weapon upgrade in ''Inquisitor'' and ''DarkHeresy''- it allows a weapon to hold multiple magazines of different types of ammunition, allowing the user to switch between them quickly.

* In the ''{{Daria}}'' ExpandedUniverse, each member of the [[TheChosenMany Corps of Ringbearers]] has a ''Defender Ring'' - a solar-powered device that can disinfect anything, create substances that can heal and feed tens or even hundreds of thousands of beings if needed, terraform large areas of land, manipulate the elements, create and transfigure materials, control time to a limited extent, impart [[PsychicPowers psychic]] or [[ElementalPowers elemental abilities]] to others... you get the picture. Powerful weapons and multipurpose tool all in one, but necessary for their mission of defending planetary populations against any manner of supernatural threats anywhere in the various realities and universes, [[ApocalypseHow helping those populations rebuild after massive disasters or even relocate to new worlds]] and [[WeHelpTheHelpless provide them with the basic essentials for survival]]... more often than not, [[OneManArmy all by themselves]].
