* ''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. Oe 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]]

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

* In the ''Anime/RoninWarriors'' [=OVA=] ''Gaiden'' the Armor of Halo is seen running around the streets of New York without its owner. Turns out it is being controlled by [[EvilSorcerer Shikaisen]] the BigBad of the story. The Armor of Torrent is seen walking on its own in the last episode of the [=OVA=] ''Legend of the Inferno Armor'' in order to join the other Ronin armors that were captured by [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Mukala]]. It has been confirmed by the main characters that the armors can be used for good or evil. But the more fights the armors are used in, especially without the human spirit, [[TheHeartless the more corrupt the armors become]]. That is why by the end of the second [=OVA=] [[spoiler: the armors are destroyed for good]].

* ConanTheBarbarian once fought one of these guys, realising he was screwed as even though he could chop the arm and the head of the armor off, the thing could still attack. Thankfully the Wench of the Week shone some light into the priest controlling it, following which it collapsed like a sack of potatoes.

* The Guard Armor/Opposite Armor, the second boss of ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts''. Hard to say whether it's exactly empty, but it certainly doesn't have a person in it. The same creature shows up again in ''358/2 Days''; from the looks of it, it seems more like it actually ''is'' the armour, rather than something controlling it. Considering that it has RaymanianLimbs, and the ability to fire energy shots when it turns into the Opposite Armor, that should have been a no-brainer.

* In ''{{TheGuyver}} manga/animation. If the host is killed while in use of the armor, it goes into a murderous autopilot until it's host is resurrected. Technically not empty of a occupant aside from a temporary corpse, still qualifies for this trope regardless.
