* 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, which was fixed, and doesn't glitch anymore.

** Kyoryuger's successor [[Series/ResshaSentaiTokkyuger [=ToQger=]]] returns to the wrist devices for the main five. However, they're two-piece: a model of each Ranger's personal train car mecha is inserted into the ToQ Changer. Yes, they are interchangeable. Each train comes with a model to be used in the Changer to summon it, or in some cases use its power at small size. They're similar to the Beast Batteries of Kyoryuger.

** ''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 ''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.

** A bit of EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: We actually don't see change devices until [[Series/DenshiSentaiDenziman the fourth series]]. In ''Series/HimitsuSentaiGoranger,'' the unmorphed Ranger jumps and yells "Go!" and a RepeatCut has them fly through the air again, but now suited (meaning we also don't get the first TransformationSequence in season one, either.) In ''Series/JAKQDengekitai,'' the heroes must enter "strengthening capsules", little booths that suit them up. There's a set on the base and a set on their plane. In ''Series/BattleFeverJ'' the heroes say "Fever!" and [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning turn around once]], though the first time, they actually had to physically put on the suits. (This was most likely [[TheArtifact an artifact]] of the show's [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original intentions]] of being a Japanese adaptation of CaptainAmerica.)

* ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'' has a unique spin on the trope- two kids utilize a magical dragon scale (in conjunction with a [[ByThePowerOfGreyskull chant]]) to travel to and from Dragon Land. So it's a ''[[IncrediblyLamePun Transportation]]'' Trinket.

* ''Anime/PrettyCure'': The first few continuities use cell phone-like items (which weren't actually operatable as cellphones) called Communes, in which their {{Weasel Mascot}}s lived. ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5'' uses the wrist-mounted Pinky Catch, then goes back to the cell phone (but without mascots inside), this time called Cure-Mo. On the other hand, ''Anime/FreshPrettyCure'' had a handheld kind of cellphone that resembled an electronic notebook, ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'' has perfume bottles (pictured above), ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure'' has brooches, ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure'' has make-up compacts (complete with powder puffs which appear during the TransformationSequence), ''Anime/DokiDokiPrettyCure'' goes back to cellphones (which are the mascots), ''Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure'' has compact mirrors, and ''Anime/GoPrincessPrettyCure'' goes back to perfume bottles.
