* The Omnitrix from ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' is ClingyMacGuffin that lets Ben turn into (initially) ten different aliens. The watch tends to not turn him into the alien he wants hinting that the device ''might'' be sentient. Eventually gets an upgrade in the form of a recalibration, followed by being replaced by the Ultimatrix. This was eventually replaced with the true Omnitrix.

** That tradition continues into ''Series/KamenRiderEx-Aid'' as some of the trinkets will give the Riders their forms, while others will summon extra armor for them to Level Up. This time, however, the trinkets are video-game-cartridge-like devices known as "Gashats," 'gashat' being onomatopoeia for the sound of an old-school game cartridge being inserted. Some Gashats are twice as thick as most of the Gashats as they have extra features, with the exception of Mighty Brothers XX. Also, when unused, the extra armor takes the form of a humanoid machine, known as a "Gamer".

** ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'' has a fancy belt, and it's called... wait for it... [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment the Drive Driver]]. However, it's actually a RobotBuddy type AI that is ''actually'' actually [[spoiler: the inventor of the tech, saved by BrainUploading. We think.]] Shinnosuke calls him "Mr. Belt." (Belt-san.) Its ever changing display is full of {{Mythology Gag}}s, taking on a face like Kivat (the last sentient belt) or a spinning wheel that resembles the turning of the turbines in the Typhoon belts. But for the first time since ''Series/KamenRiderAmazon,'' the belt ''isn't'' the full transformation device. It is a two-parter where the Shift Cars are placed in the arm-worn Shift Brace, for a transformation process that's nigh identical to that seen in ''[[Series/ResshaSentaiTokkyuger [=ToQger=]]],'' which it airs alongside, while it requires the belt to detect and process the powers of the shift car inserted, as seen in episode 3 where he can't transform until Tridoron delivers it JustInTime and he dons it, despite the fact that he'd already been wearing the Shift Brace and had a Shift Car.

** Then there's the ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'' A-Squad. Their ''unmorphed uniforms'' are their morphers, apparently: Ranger-colorcoded energy flows from the colored portions of their uniforms to become the Ranger suits.

**The phone morphers make sense for MerchandiseDriven reasons: the toys can make a variety of sounds or quotes play with different button combinations, whereas there's only so many ways to hold out your belt buckle and yell "It's morphin' time." However, it became pretty nonsensical in-universe because of how poorly they often fit the theme. It's one thing for a high-tech team, but Gaoranger (Wild Force) is a nature-themed series where the Rangers live on a flying island with their hippie-looking mentoress, which are the remnants of an ancient kingdom. No attempt was ever made to explain why the morphers were phones, devices not invented for ''centuries'' after the Animarium left the surface! Magiranger (Mystic Force) wields the powers granted by the powerful magic-users of a magical dimension, so naturally... they get cell phones. (Mystic Force had them start out as Harry Potter-esque wands TheMentor disguised as phones for the whole SecretIdentity thing, though.) The newest descendants of a samurai bloodline? Cellphones, of course! Space pirates? Cellphones, what else? However, sentai would get over its obsession with phones with ''Gokaiger,'' as the last full team with phone morphers was them.

** ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'', being a dinosaur series, decides that the most logical choice for the transformation trinkets is a large gun in which a battery is inserted. The guns, however, are more like the aforementioned belts belonging to Kamen Riders Double, OOO, and Wizard; the batteries, charged up with the user's bravery, are what cause the transformation. The exceptions are the SixthRanger, who was born before the existence of guns and uses a large wrist-worn crossbow-like device, and the first two {{Guest Star Party Member}}s, who are already dead and now manifest as spirits that can channel their bravery directly into their batteries.
