* In order for the titular hero of DragonBooster to transform, he needs an Amulet (which holds a "key" of sorts) and Gauntlet. If he loses either one, he is stuck in his civilian form. It also requires that he shout a [[ByThePowerOfGreyskull Catchphrase]], but that's another trope entirely.

A Transformation Trinket is an object which is the source of your shapeshifting powers, or at least a focus for them. It is vitally necessary to have your transformation trinket on your person in order to [[PowerMakeover change into]] your SuperpoweredAlterEgo. They're common among {{Henshin Hero}}es and {{Magical Girl}}s, and are almost always activated ByThePowerOfGrayskull

** ''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.)

** ''Series/KamenRiderGhost'' 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.
** That tradition continues into ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' 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".

The Brothers Grimm.
Amazons are bio-organic weapons and so their transformation is a biologically innate process. What the belt does is enhance their monster body.

* 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.
