* Thor's uru hammer Mjolnir is not only a nearly indestructible melee weapon, it can also be thrown to devastating effect, it controls the weather, fires various types of energy, opens interdimensional portals and enables the wielder to fly. Some of its other abilities (which have been used and/or referenced far less frequently) include its capacity to generate anti-matter, magnetism, force fields, intense heat, a magic neutralizing field, a memory-erasing aura, and the ability to freeze time.

** Unfortunately you rarely see most of this cool functionality, as Reyn mainly just whacks things with it. For extra BadAss points, he uses his other hand to punch things.

** Ezra's lightsaber doubles as a blaster.

** Ezra's lightsaber doubles as a blaster. This also has the benefit that it doesn't appear to be a lightsaber, which is useful given the fact that the characters are in hiding.

* The Sonic Screwdriver in ''Series/DoctorWho'', can be used for anything from picking locks to making robots' heads explode.
** Just don't bother trying it on anything wood.
** Or around hair dryers.
** WordOfGod has stated that the writers have fun trying to come up with new uses for the Sonic Screwdriver.

* You have to be superhumanly strong to use most of them, but ''Naruni: Wave 2'' for ''TabletopGames/{{Rifts}}'' contains a series of mercenary multi-rifles, which tend to combine three weapons in one, such as the Silverfire, which contains a gun which fires silver projectiles, a flamethrower, and a laser; and others that combine plasma cartridge, laser, plasma beam, grenade, micromissiles etc. together, usually in combinations of three. Some can even have a vibro-bayonet mounted, for extra cost.
** Many magical weapons in ''TabletopGames/{{Rifts}}'', such as rune or [[MagiTek techno-wizard]] weapons, can also be used as both ranged weapons and melee, with both also having other features such as deflector shields or poison, and the ability to use spells (rune weapons having a varying amount to cast, while techno-wizard creations usually end up with a specific set which requires the creator's or another techno-wizards' work to upgrade). One example is a sword introduced in ''Federation of Magic'', with massive damage, and the ability to increase it ''a lot'', protection for the user, and the ability to fire charged particle beams.
* If you like the idea of using [[Film/TheFifthElement Zorg brand weapon clusters]] in your OGL science fiction games, there is a blatant copy in the OGL supplement ''1001 Science Fiction Weapons''. You will need to be proficient in both energy and slugthrower weapons to use the General Weapon System Mark 183, which contains a shotgun, particle beam, laser, micromissiles, and grenade launcher in one single handy pod. The more advanced Mark 490 contains an X-ray laser, stun ray, plasma gun, armour-piercing force bolt, and an antimatter gun.

** The spinoff RPG ''EndlessFrontier'' features Haken Browning (who despite the name is more like the {{expy}} of Excellen's ''boyfriend'') and his Night Fowl, an assault rifle with an underslung stake driver ''and'' a fold-out blade in the stock, which he wields with a similar amount of gun-twirling flare.

* 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.
