to:

* ''Videogame/{{Vigilante 8}}'' and the second game feature {{Power Up}}s that change the wheels of the vehicles into propellers (for driving on the waters) and, in the Alaska stage, skis for front wheels and bulkier wheels for the back ones.
* ''Videogame/CrashNitroKart'': [[BigBad Emperor Velo]] tells the kidnapped racers (either Team Bandicoot or Team Evil) that he has their vehicles modified so they can race in the tracks he has set on 4 planets. The modification seems to be the wheels, which can now turn 90 degrees and emit anti-gravity/magnetic waves so they can ride on the heavily-tilted tracks or giant tube tracks.

necessary. Dick Dastardly's Mean Machine was especially versatile--in "Real Gone Ape" it's used as a submarine.

Cars in fiction tend to be [[CoolCar pretty awesome]]. Some just look cool and go fast. Others have [[WeaponizedCar weapons systems]] and [[InvisibilityCloak active camouflage]] built into them. And then there are these cars, which can transform in order to traverse terrain meant for other vehicles. Like boats. Or ''planes''. There are practical reasons for this to be the case, of course; after all, you wouldn't want to have to give up chasing the villains because they planned a water escape that you didn't account for. The primary reason, though, is the RuleOfCool. Because being able to drive off a pier in a sports car, transform on the way down, and hit the water in a speedboat is just plain {{badass}}.

* The Gadgetmobile in ''GadgetAndTheGadgetinis'' and ''InspectorGadget2015''. The earliest model had a plane mode in "Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas," but only to set up a "Go-Go Gadget Plane" joke.

* ''{{Champions}}''. Vehicles can have any form of movement super characters can, including flight, swimming, tunneling and even teleportation. They can also have the power of ShapeShifting so they have an appropriate form for the movement mode they're in.

* The ''SpyHunter'' games are probably one of the best examples of this. In addition to being able to transform into a CoolBoat, if the armor takes too much damage, it will be shed to reveal a motorcycle (or a jetski) underneath). In the sequel, it can optionally convert into an off-road mode, where the ground clearance is raised, wheels widened and the tyres have spikes come out of then, which reduces speed but significantly improves handling when offroad.
* One of the more expensive mods you can add to your car in ''StreetsOfSimCity'' is a flight modification which, well, [[CaptainObvious allows you to fly]]. Why is this useful, you ask? Dude, you can make your car [[Franchise/BattlestarGalactica frakking]] fly. Who needs a reason?
