** ''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.

** 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". 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".

** 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.

** ''Series/Kamen Rider Ghost'' goes back to having only one transformation trinket for each of the Riders, but the Eyecons do follow the tradition of the Shift Cars, and Signal Bikes, as some will enable the rider to transform/change from, while others will enable the Rider to switch powers. This time, their powers are based off of famous historical figures from around the world, such as Miyamoto Musashi, Issac Newton, King Tut, Benkei, and The Brothers Grimm.

This time, Mach and Chaser had a non-sentient belt called the "Mach Driver Honou" witht he trinkets being known as "Signal Bikes". Fortunately, Shift Cars can be used in the Mach Driver, and the same goes the other way around.
**** For Kamen Rider Chaser, he used to have a hand held gun as his transformation device, with his power-up trinkets being dark Shift Cars, known as Viral Cores. His former identity was "Mashin Chaser".

** Other items that trigger some specific Pokémon's forme changes include: Kyurem's DNA Splicers (allowing it to [[FusionDance merge]] with either Reshiram or Zekrom to become White Kyurem and Black Kyurem, respectively), the Reveal Glass (Tornadus, Thundurus and Landorus into their Therian Formes) and the Prison Bottle (Hoopa Confined into Hoopa Unbound). The Zygarde Cube, aside from storing Zygarde Cells and Cores, technically functions as another one, since the player can use the Cube to switch a Zygarde (with all 100 of its pieces) between its 10% and 50% Formes.
