** Alphonse Elric is one of these. The fact that he has the voice of an eleven-year-old takes a lot of the intimidation factor right out. It ''does'' [[ActuallyThatsMyAssistant get him mistaken]] for the Fullmetal Alchemist [[RunningGag on a regular basis]], which annoys his brother Ed - the ''real'' Fullmetal Alchemist - to no end.

* Ironknuckles, a series-wide enemy ranging from an ordinary {{Mook}} to an uncommon BossInMookClothing, are canonically suits of armor animated with evil magic (barring one in ''Ocarina of Time'' that held a brainwashed captive). There's another recurring enemy known as Darknut which resembles the Ironknuckle, but it's actually a living being wearing armor.

* ''ComicBook/FreaksSqueele'': Xiong Mao is exploring deep in the Hall of Archives with her companions in volume 9 when she encounters a living suit of armor who has been down there for centuries. His master was a knight so excessively fond of wearing plate armor that he [[TwentyFourHourArmor did not take it off to eat, to sleep, or even to have sex]]. He gave it a name: Halifax. And thus, the armor came to life. One day the knight died, and according to his will, he was interred together with Halifax. After several centuries of his master's silence and decomposition, Halifax climbed out of the tomb with his master's corpse still inside him and searched through every library it could find for the secret to reviving his master, eventually finding his way to the archives. Then, when Xiong Mao and her fiends arrived, he remembered how his knight used to seduce women with the words, "If you do not offer me your heart, I will die!" Therefore, he is now convinced that he needs to take the heart of a woman--literally--and politely asks Xiong Mao to hold still while he cuts out her heart. That's just the start of the craziness.[[/folder]]

* Used in a heavily symbolic way in a dream sequence in ''Film/{{Excalibur}}''. The bare armor represents [[spoiler:Lancelot fighting himself]].

* The Witch-King in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' is a spirit that is incorporeal when not clad in something, like the rest of the Nazgûl, but when he rides into battle in ''Return of the King'', he becomes something between this trope and TinTyrant. Cue the clattering armor falling on the ground when Éowyn and Merry kill him.

I tell you there's no one at all there: there's only the metal! The barrel of metal: the bundle of armor. It's empty!" The play ends with the warning "The people invent their oppressors: they wish to believe in them. They wish to be free of their freedom: released from their liberty: The long labor of liberty ended!"
