* Another very early example was Pook (from the slavic (or was it Celtic?) word Pooka, a type of animal spirit) from ''Manga/{{Astroboy}}'', a robot kid who could turn into a variety of animals before his transformation system was destroyed by trying to change into too many things too fast. In the GBA game he also becomes a CombiningMecha, gaining the ability to change into the "heart" of the planet destroying alien robot Garon. Transformers show up a few other times in Astroboy, including Odette, a robot ballet dancer who turns into a swan who was created for a fairytale theme park attraction based on SwanLake.

* The three main Agency vehicles in ''{{Crackdown}}'' all transform into bigger and badder forms as the player's Driving Skill rises. The Supercar turns into a machinegun-packing batmobile, the SUV turns into a monster-truck that can jump and drive up walls, and the Truck turns into... an even bigger and badder truck with a nitro-booster for maximum ramming power. No attempts are made to justify the blatantly impossible transformations. It happens because it's ''[[RuleOfCool cool]]''.
* In ''GunstarHeroes'' (both the original and the GBA remake), Green uses an ancient vehicle known as Seven Force. It has seven different variations. And you have to fight them all.
* ''ViewtifulJoe'' has the Six Machine, a transforming vehicle with six forms: A humongous mecha, a car, a jet, a submarine, a subterrine, and a cannon.

* Beethes, aka Beethoven (yes, that [[Creator/LudwigVanBeethoven Beethoven]]) from ''Anime/{{Classicaloid}}'' creates these from large, mostly mechanical objects with MagicMusic. This goes from RuleOfCool to RuleOfFunny when [[BalefulPolymorph he gets turned into a fish temporarily]] and makes a crab mecha out of an oven and kitchen equipment.

*** The Flags and Enacts are odd examples because rather than transforming mid-battle like pretty much every other example on this page, they have to be "converted" between forms while at an airbase. Graham Akre is the first pilot to attempt a mid-air transformation, and by the time of TheMovie, the Braves (successors to the Flags) are all capable of doing so.
