I found this looking for a broader trope that there doesn't seem to be a page for. I'm thinking this page should s be slightly expanded. My tentative idea is as fallows:

Flexible Factory Machinery is able to perform it's intended function, regardless of the input. (typically in a cartoon)

First of all, the examples show this also happens to antagonists.

Moreover while I don't have many specific examples, I think I've seen cases such as a cartoon character going into a machine that puts caps on bottles, and coming out in bottle-shape with a matching cap, (which was larget than that of the actual bottles.) and I think a Tom and Jerry cartoon where Tom is thrown down a bowling alley and comes out int he shape of a pin. Arguably there could also be variants like a dog going into a potato peeling machine and coming out perfectly shaved.

Rename to "packed protagonist" for added alliterative appeal?

I'm reasonably certain this happened to some of the Rescue Rangers, but I'm not sure when.
