In this paper, we generalize a formula for the discrete Choquet integral by replacing the standard product by a suitable fusion function. For the introduced fusion functions based discrete Choquet-like integrals we discuss and prove several properties and also show that our generalization leads to several new interesting functionals. We provide a complete characterization of the introduced functionals as aggregation functions. For n=2, several new aggregation functions are obtained, and if symmetric capacities are considered, our approach yields new generalizations of OWA operators. If n > 2, the introduced functionals are aggregation functions only if they are Choquet integrals with respect to some distorted capacity.
