* In "The Fall of the City", a radio play by Creator/ArchibaldMacLeish broadcast in 1937, Creator/OrsonWelles narratively describes a city that has gotten word that "The Conquerer" is approaching. In the face of uncertainty and recrimination, the people of the city do not mount a defense; instead, they surrender before the Conquerer arrives. With their faces on the ground, only the narrator can see that "There's no one! There's no one at all! No one! . . .The helmet is hollow! The metal is empty! The armor is empty! 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!"

* In Creator/DavidEddings' ''Literature/TheElenium'', the heroes find themselves up against a number of armored baddies. Until they realize that it is just armor with dusty remains that have been programmed to [[ArtificialStupidity defend the stone they stand on]], [[DisasterDominoes which turns out to be a mistake]]. [[spoiler: The armour was enchanted by [[TheDragon Otha]], who had frightening amounts of power, but also a frightening lack of common sense.]]

* PlayedWith in ''Anime/GargantiaOnTheVerdurousPlanet''--[[spoiler:[[WellIntentionedExtremist Kugel]] was [[DeadAllAlong dead]] long before [[AntiHero Ledo]] found his fleet, but his [[HumongousMecha Machine Caliber]], [[AGodAmI Striker]], pretends that he is still alive inside of her so that she can continue his work]].

A similar twist, even though the "animated" part is to be expected.
