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.

->'''StoneWall:''' "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 [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome 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 ]]

* ''VideoGame/{{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 Kantaroth.
* ''Anime/GaikingLegendOfDaikuMaryu'': Gaiking's cockpit [[CombiningMecha combines with]] the arms of [[FragileSpeedster Raiking]] and the legs of [[MightyGlacier Vulking]] to form the ludicrously powerful "[[ Gaiking the Great]]".
* In ''Anime/{{Godannar}}'', [[TheRival Gainer]] lends its TransformingMecha sword to the eponyomous mech, resulting in "Godannar Triple Drive".
* In the finale of ''Anime/{{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 he was arrested. However, 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.
** Before the final battle with Z-ONE, the other members of Team 5Ds lend Yusei their Signer Dragons. [[AllYourPowersCombined He ends up using them all to perform an Over Limit Accel Synchro, summoning Shooting Quasar Dragon.]]
* ''Manga/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.
* In ''Manga/{{Dorohedoro}}'' this happens to [[ButtMonkey Fujita]]. Subverted when it's revealed he was chosen for the mission ''because'' he's weak and cowardly, and that he can't bring anything he was given because it would affect the invisibility magic.
* ''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.]]
* The GrandFinale of ''Anime/GundamBuildFighters'' features Sei abandoning his Build Gundam Mk-II in order to attach its [[MechaExpansionPack booster]] to Reiji's Build Strike. Later, Mao lends the damaged Build Strike his own Gundam's limbs and weapons so that it can participate in one last fight.
** The Exia Dark Matter is an unusual case. Defeated heroes lending [[SpiritedCompetitor Tatsuya]] their signature abilities before his big fight with Reiji would normally be touching... except that both Tatsuya and his donors are [[InvokedTrope forced into it]] by villains who want Reiji to lose, [[spoiler:and one of these upgrades is Aila's [[PsychoSerum EMBODY System]] at full power, which is used to {{Brainwash}} Tatsuya into compliance.]]
** Both {{inverted|Trope}} and played straight in [[Anime/GundamBuildFightersTry the sequel series]], where Fumina's Winning Gundam is designed to break apart into weapons for her teammates to wield.
** And during the decisive match of the championship, Sekai's Try Burning has its damaged parts replaced with those from Yuuma and Fumina's Gunpla. Much to everyone else's surprise, as both Yuuma and Minato redesigned them to have all their parts interchangeble just in case.


[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* The Marvel/DC IntercontinuityCrossover ''ComicBook/JLAAvengers'' ends with one of these. {{Superman}} wields ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's shield, and later [[ComicBook/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: Film ]]

* The 2009 film ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'' 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 ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The Fellowship of the Ring'' -- [[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/FantasticFourRiseOfTheSilverSurfer''. 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 ''Literature/TheSapphireRose'', 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: "[[ 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 [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Crowning Moment of Funny]]), serves to [[MagikarpPower be quite effective]] [[LethalJokeCharacter against the]] MonsterOfTheWeek.
* The final battle of [[Series/ResshaSentaiTokkyuger Ressha Sentai ToQger]] has all the Tokkyugers lending their transformation Ressha for [=ToQ=] 1 to become "[=ToQ=] 1 Rainbow" and defeat Emperor Z.
* [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]] goes into battle against the Master in the Series 1 finale wielding a crossbow given to her by [[TheMentor Giles]], a leather jacket she got from [[TallDarkAndHandsome Angel]], and [[KickingAssInAllHerFinery a prom dress previously worn by her mom]].


[[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.
* {{Inverted|Trope}} in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' in the fight against Kael'thas Sunstrider in Tempest Keep, as he makes the players fight a bunch of his super-powered weapons in order that (from the game's perspective, not his) they can pick them up and use them against him and his minions in the next stages of the battle.
* This is a regular part of playing ''[[VideoGame/StreetPassMiiPlaza Battleground Z/StreetPass Zombies]]'': The survivors you find will all lend you, or at least offer you, items they either have been using to fight off zombies or have some personal value to them, which you then use as weapons anyway. They then flee offscreen, presumably to safety, trusting you to take out the zombie hordes in the area.
* {{Inverted|Trope}} in ''VideoGame/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable'' because it's the ''villains'' that pull this in ''The Gears of Destiny''. [[spoiler:[[BigBadWannabe Lord]] [[LargeHam Dearche]] finds herself on the ropes in her efforts to obtain the powers of [[SealedEvilInACan Unbreakable Darkness]] with her loyal retainers [[CoDragons Stern and Levi]] heavily injured in the process of weakening the system and she herself prepared to expend a lot of energy to [[AFatherToHisMen save them]]. They won't have any of it and instead [[HeroicSacrifice transfer their remaining power to her]] to give her the ability to defeat U-D by herself. [[BreakTheHaughty She doesn't take this very well]]]].
