* [[SplitPersonality Moka]] from ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' wears a [[CreepyCoolCrosses rosary]] around her neck that [[OnlyTheChosenMayWield only Tsukune can remove]]. When it's on, she's [[NiceGirl Outer Moka]]. When it's off, she's [[{{Badass}} Inner Moka]]. It's somewhat an inversion though, as the amulet acutally serves as more of a [[SealedEvilInACan suppressor]] as [[spoiler:Inner Moka is the real Moka and Outer Moka is not.]]

** ''Series/KamenRiderWizard'' has the [=WizarDriver=] belt, which unlike most belts is actually worn full-time: most of the time it's in a scaled-back form, having maybe a little larger belt buckle than can be found in real life but it's not too outrageous. Even in this form it can activate most of Wizard's [[RingOfPower Rings of Power]], as all he has to do is hold his ringed hand in front of it. When it's time to fight, ''then'' he can turn the thing to the full version that can activate his transformation rings as well. Which of them is the source of his power? [[spoiler: Actually, it's the Phantom monster inside him, whose powers he can draw because he was {{Badass}} enough to resist the "drive you to despair and burst out of you" process.]]

** ''VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker'' introduces three new transformation items exclusive to the ''Super Mario Bros.'' game style. The Weird Mushroom turns Mario tall and thin, enabling him to jump slightly higher. Meanhwile, the Big Mushroom increases Mario's mass in addition to his size, enabling him to break more kinds of destructable blocks. Finally, the Mystery Mushroom changes his appearance to a random character or object, but otherwise functions similarly to the Super Mushroom (minus the size increase).



** In addition to the usual MegaManning, some games have Copy Essences lying around that grant an ability when touched. In ''[[VideoGame/KirbySuperStar Milky Way Wishes]],'' this is the only way to use special abilities (they're permanent and can be switched at will though).

* ''Creator/StudioPierrot'':
** ''Anime/MagicalAngelCreamyMami'' has a magic wand in the early shows; and then a star-shaped ring when the wand is lost.
** ''Anime/MagicalStarMagicalEmi'' uses a magic bracelet.
** ''Anime/PersiaTheMagicFairy'' uses a magic baton.
** ''Anime/MagicalStageFancyLala'': Lala uses a magic pen which she wears as a necklace. The pen is decorated with a small clock whose hands [[OlderAlterEgo spin forward]] whenever she transforms.
* Karin Kokubu from ''Manga/AiToYuukiNoPigGirlTondeBuurin'' (better known as Super Pig for some) uses a pink compact with to transform into the pig [[AnimalSuperheroes Justice Buurin]]. The compact stores a pig's snout which is called by the phrase [[ByThePowerOfGreyskull "BA BI BU BE BOorin!"]], the compact then opens and the snout comes out and attaches to her face in one of the oddest [[TransformationSequence transformation sequences]] in anime. It also apparently is a form of communication of a king of a planet of [[AlienAnimals alien pigs]]. This is definitely one of the [[WidgetSeries more interesting trinkets]].



* ''Anime/AnimalDetectivesKiruminzoo'' has the eponymous kirumin compacts for the main characters, while the animilians can transform at will.
* ''Anime/AoNoExorcist'' has the Kurikara, a demon-slaying sword. When drawn, [[AntiAntiChrist Rin]] becomes [[WreathedInFlames covered in blue fire]] and becomes more demonic looking, with bigger fangs, ears, and FireballEyeballs. Unusually, he's actually extremely powerful even when it's sheathed. Then again, Kurikara is more PowerLimiter that contains his Demon Heart and Rin is a HalfHumanHybrid who already had SuperStrength even ''before'' the seals on him were undone.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** After the Soul Society Arc, Ichigo is given a pendant that ejects his {{shinigami}} soul from his body so he can fight monsters. It beats the hell out of his earlier TransformationTrinket, which is a glove Rukia wears while she ''punches him in the face''; and Kon, a modified soul inside a candy that displaces his own. Although Kon is still somewhat useful, because Ichigo's body is essentially dead when Ichigo leaves it.
** When Rukia is in the real world she uses her own mod soul called "Chappy", which has an irritatingly cute personality (this was what she apparently tried to obtain when Ichigo ended up with Kon).
* ''Manga/ButsuZone'' - Sannju's armring.
* In ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' it's the trinket ''itself'' that transforms, not the magic user. (Her own personal fangirl provides the costumes.) It is a key-like pendant that transforms into a wand, by the way.
* The pocket watch in ''Manga/ChronoCrusade'' could be considered to be a very untraditional TransformationTrinket. When Chrono opens the watch, it allows him to turn into his true form--but the watch is what ''keeps'' him looking like a young normally. It doesn't make him transform so much as it removes the seal on his powers.
* ''Anime/CorrectorYui'' had a wrist-mounted device.



* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'': Usagi and Chibiusa used jeweled brooches, while the other Solar-System Senshi used wands. Usagi also had a Disguise Pen (which was used in the first two seasons of the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]], but dropped after that). The Sailor Starlights used head-mounted microphones, and in [[Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon the live action series]], as well as their transformation items (now bracelets), the girls had cellphones which they could use to disguise themselves. Heck, at one point Sailor Moon even used ''the Holy Grail'' to become Super Sailor Moon... or at least something ''called'' that for a while, then officially named the Cálice.
* ''Anime/DevilHunterYohko'':Finger rings.
* ''Anime/TekkamanBlade'' used small crystal "sculptures." After Blade's crystal is shattered, it's installed into a HumongousMecha.
* ''Anime/PrettySammy'': a baton.
* ''Anime/RoninWarriors'' used crystal marbles. This element wasn't added until around episode 20.
* ''[[Franchise/LyricalNanoha Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha]]'':
** The weapon ''itself'' transforms into a pendant, keychain, badge, card, or other item when not in use, and is activated to transform both itself and its user.
** Vivio's is a more traditional MagicalGirl Transformation Trinket, since it retains its form while changing Vivio to her [[OlderAlterEgo teenage Magical Girl form]]. Oh, and it's a [[BunniesForCuteness bunny plushie]].
