* Coincidentally (as it came before the trope was defined[[note]] and no, we're not sure whether it had any influence on the trope name[[/note]]), ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' had the Toa Nuva acquire gear ''called'' Adaptive Armor just before they went to Karda Nui. True to the trope, said armor can adapt to terrain and enemies; it gave them flight capabilities (propellors, wings, jetpacks) for Karda Nui's sky-high setting and light energy weapons for use against the shadowy Makuta.

Added DiffLines:

* During the Superior Iron Man run, Tony had a symbiote based armour. After ''ComicBook/SecretWars2015'', he switched to an armour that can morph but isn't, you know, kind of alive. And it can do pretty much everything all his old armours could do - even [[spoiler: Victor Von Doom]] was impressed.

* The symbiote that plays a large role in SpiderMan3 has this effect, attaching first to Peter Parker's suit and providing him increased abilities, and also accentuating aspects of his personality. It later becomes detached from Parker and connects to his nemesis with similar effect.

* {{Downplayed}} in ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''. Shardplate will change shape to perfectly fit any wearer, but other than that it grants everyone the same powers and advantages [[spoiler: so far, at any rate.]]

* In the TabletopGame/{{Exalted}} supplement ''Shards of the Exalted Dream'' we are introduced to "Modern Alchemicals" which has themodularity and adaptability of the Alchemical Exalted and removes their utter dependence on infrastructure. In a way, all Exaltations qualify for this, save that they are less "armour" and more "omnitool".

* The Allies in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3'' field the [[TanksButNoTanks Multigunner IFV]], an adaptive ''jeep'' that would power up any infantry put inside ([[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything including the other factions']]). There was also a base defense version. Hilariously enough, a Multigunner Turret seen through the fog of war would appear to have ''all'' its possible addons, including several guns, a missile rack, a lightning gun, a freeze ray, a plasma beam, an energy bow, a ninja star launcher, and some kind of automatic repair arm.
