The BigBad has succeeded in his goal of stealing the [[MineralMacGuffin Crystal of Unstoppableness]]! [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Soon he will be unstoppable]]! And to make things worse, all the heroes have been wounded and are unable to fight... except for John Q. Protagonist.

->'''MightyGlacier:''' "Take my shield. You know how tough it is. It's not doing me much good right now anyway."
->'''TheRival:''' "Hmmph. I'll let you borrow my [[InfinityPlusOneSword Sword of Eternity]], but you're giving it back right after this is over."
->'''LoveInterest:''' "Please, John, just take my [[HopeSpringsEternal Amulet of Hope]]. Be careful."

The main character then goes on to [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome kick a ton of bad guy ass]] using all of the items he received. This can be done with a single character who lends him a weapon, in which case it is usually TheRival. Usually reserved for the FinalBattle.

Occasionally this will happen in a series with [[EasilyDetachableRobotParts modular robots]], in which case the other heroes (or their [[HumongousMecha vehicles]]) lend their leader ''parts of their bodies'' (not to be confused with the entire robots [[CombiningMecha combining]]).

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* ''{{Medabots}}'' has a scene where Metabee has been badly damaged, so he borrows Sumilidon's super-fast legs, and the {{Arm Cannon}}s of Crosserdog and Rokusho.
* ''Anime/GaikingLegendOfDaikuMaryu'': Gaiking's cockpit [[CombiningMecha combines with]] the arms of [[FragileSpeedster Raiking]] and the legs of [[MightyGlacier Vulking]] to form the ludicrously powerful "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPmRB7njTZE Gaiking the Great]]".
* In ''{{Godannar}}'', [[TheRival Gainer]] lends its TransformingMecha sword to the eponyomous mech, resulting in "Godannar Triple Drive".
* In the finale of ''{{GaoGaiGar}}'', the robot team lend their ''brains'' to [=GaoGaiGar=]'s component machines to ensure that [=GaoGaiGar=] can [[CombiningMecha combine]] and fight at his best.
* Used in ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'': Yusei's in jail and the arrogant warden tells him he can duel his way out - of course, his deck was confiscated when they're arrested. But all of the prisoners have smuggled in a card or two with special meaning to them, so they loan them all to Yusei, giving him enough to make a usable deck to take the warden down a few pegs.
** This happens again before the final battle with Z-ONE, where the other members of Team 5D's lend Yusei their Signer Dragons. [[AllYourPowersCombined He ends up using them all to perform an Over Limit Accel Synchro, summoning Shooting Quasar Dragon.]]
* SaintSeiya has the fight between [[TheHero Seiya]] and [[TheDragon Ikki]]. After his friends are knocked out, Seiya is forced to fight alone and is systematically helped by [[TheLancer Shiryu's]] Dragon Shield and [[TheChick Shun's]] Andromeda Chain. An interesting variation happens at the climax of the battle when Seiya finds out he has received Hyoga's "Diamond Dust" and uses it [[CombinationAttack together]] with his "Ryu Sei Ken" for increased power.
* ''{{Dorohedoro}}''Fujita.
* ''Manga/BeetTheVandelBuster'': Beet ''starts'' the series with the magical soul-born weapons of five veteran warriors who saved his life, and then disappeared. [[HowDoIShotWeb He still has to struggle to master each of them, however]].
* ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'' used this during the climax of the Diamond and Pearl arc. After Platinum discovers that the Sinnoh Gym Leaders had been taken out, the injured [[AnIcePerson Candice]], [[GreenThumb Gardenia]], and [[KungFuKid Maylene]] each offer their one healthy Pokemon to Platinum to help her in the final battle. [[spoiler:Then a wayward attack from Dialga and Palkia damages the mechanism of their Pokeballs, rendering them unusable but she's allowed to keep them afterward for a different mission.]]
** This also happened in an earlier arc, during the FRLG chapter, between Red and Green. [[spoiler:Red's resident GiantFlyer, Aerodactyl, was still wounded from Red's encounter with Deoxys, so Green had to trade his Charizard with Red's Venusaur in order for Red to go after Giovanni.]]

[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* The Marvel/DC IntercontinuityCrossover ''[[{{JLA-Avengers}} JLA/Avengers]]'' ends with one of these. {{Superman}} wields CaptainAmerica's shield, and later [[TheMightyThor Thor]]'s Mjolnir, to fight the BigBad. The way it's illustrated on the cover of the final issue might count as one of the most awesome things ever done in comics.
* ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'': Given a clever twist when the character who receives the main character's equipment and powers [[spoiler: reveals that they've been TheMole all along, and [[InvokedTrope deliberately]] orchestrated the scenario to play out this way]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Film ]]

* The 2009 film ''Film/{{Transformers}}: Revenge of the Fallen'' features [[spoiler:Jetfire]] sacrificing himself after a severe injury so that Optimus Prime can snap on his parts for the final [[CurbStompBattle battle]].
* The scene in LordOfTheRings--[[SupportingLeader "You have my sword"]], "And you have my bow," [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame "And my axe"]]-- comes close, although in that case the wielders of the weapons were pledging to come along with the hero, not just give him their weapons.
* A variation is used in ''Film/FantasticFour'': ''Rise of the Silver Surfer''. Johnny has been power-swapping with the other three members for most of the film, and in the climax, [[spoiler: he takes on all four of their powers to fight the BigBad.]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* In the last book of ''TheElenium'', an injured Bevier passes his [[BladeOnAStick Lochaber Axe]] to Berit when he's about to go with the main group into Azash's lair. [[spoiler: Berit uses said axe in the climax to break Azash's concentration during his battle against Sparhawk and the Bhelliom.]]

[[folder: Live Action Television ]]

* In ''Series/{{Farscape}}'', John is the only one of the crew who isn't too incapacitated by an alien who altered the bioluminescence on Moya ([[DisabilityImmunity due to his comparatively poor eyesight]]). In a LockAndLoadMontage the others give him heat-absorbent paste (pre-digested by Zhaan to increase its potency[[note]]''"IT'S PUKE?!"''[[/note]]), dorky flight goggles, a cap soaked in the same bio-paste, a cape (solar-reflecting flare wrap), a shield (an armored section of Aeryn's Prowler), and D'Argo's Qualta blade. He then decides to StabTheSky while humming "Music/RideOfTheValkyries". Upon seeing this Aeryn simply folds her arms and says: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ltn1s-v-XjE We are going to die.]]"
* Done literally in ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'', with four of the Rangers handing their swords to Gokai Blue. Yes folks, [[DualWielding one guy with]] [[UpToEleven FIVE swords.]]
** Later on, Gokai Green tries to build a new weapon but runs out of spare parts. He eventually works up the nerve to ask the rest of his team for their weapons to disassemble, which they give without hesitation.
* In ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'', Sky idolized his father (who was a Red Ranger years ago); but when he became a Ranger himself he was assigned as a lower-ranked Blue Ranger because of his arrogance. When it came time to face the alien criminal who killed his father, Jack loaned Sky his Red Ranger morpher for the battle.
-->'''Sky:''' This one's for you, dad. ''[[ByThePowerOfGreyskull S.P.D.! Emergency!]]''
* The ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' crossover with ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger'' shows Decade and Shinken Red briefly trading their {{BFS}} weapons (the [[Series/KamenRiderBlade Blade]] Blade and Rekka Daizantou, respectively) in order to finish Chinomanako off.
** In the same show, as well as a novel that retells the series, Kaito finally gives Decade the Diend card so they can win a battle.
* Parodied in ''Series/GoGoSentaiBoukenger'', where Satoru is given a heaping of bad luck. His friends/teammates hand him lucky items that, while making a hilarious costume (and a CrowningMomentOfFunny), serves to [[MagikarpPower be quite effective]] [[LethalJokeCharacter against the]] MonsterOfTheWeek.

[[folder: Video Games ]]

* In ''VideoGame/MegaManX'', if you haven't gotten the arm cannon upgrade, Zero will give X his arm cannon (which has the upgrade) just before he dies in Sigma's castle. In ''X3'', he'll do it again; if you use him to fight a particular midboss in Sigma's fortress, he'll die after defeating it, but not before giving X his Z-Saber.
* A variation in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''. Much of the story is about the characters' finding their purpose or reason for fighting. [[spoiler: At the end of the game,]] a HopelessBossFight sees your entire party defeated. Whichever four party members are inactive share their reason for fighting or the meaning they have found in their journey together, each reviving one of the active party members for the boss fight that immediately follows.
