Added DiffLines:

* In the "Get a Clue" level in ''VideoGame/TheFairlyOddparentsShadowShowdown'', these serve not only as enemies, but a level mechanic. In one section, in order to get a particular wish star, Timmy (as a ghost) must chase down suits to armor to the base that [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience corresponds to their color]], then go "boo", which scares them so much they cower, unmoving.

* 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 FloatingLimbs, and the ability to fire energy shots when it turns into the Opposite Armor, that should have been a no-brainer.
** Another, possibly straighter example in the later games is the [[BonusBoss Lingering Sentiment/Lingering Will]] in ''Kingdom Hearts 2'' ''[[UpdatedRerelease FM+]]'' and ''[[OddlyNamedSequel2ElectricBoogaloo Birth By Sleep]]''. In BBS [[spoiler: you get to briefly play ''as the armor'' after its original owner gets possessed by the BigBad]].
** Any Keyblade wielder with a strong enough will can apparently leave their armor behind as a sentiment, BBS Final Mix has the Armor of the Master and No Heart, [[spoiler: the sentiments of Eraqus and Xehanort, respectively]].

* The suits of haunted armor from ''VideoGame/Brawlhalla'' that fell from the sky and attacked the villagers of the Ikrusk.

** The same game, as well as VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft, also has Revenants. Those are sort of {{elemental|Embodiment}} [[OurGhostsAreDifferent undead]] which manifest as a floating suit of armor controlled by an elemental force. In Warcraft III there were few physical differences between them, all appearing as the same armor (of different sizes depending on the revenant's power) held together by a vague flowing energy (usually blueish for both Ice, Frost and Death revenants, though Fire ones have orange energy.) World of Warcraft gives different types distinct armors, and their elemental affiliation is more clearly defined with mud, water, fire or wind swirling inside the armor.

* ''DesktopDungeons'' has Animated Armor [[spoiler:in the Factory special dungeon]]. They only have one hit point, but they all have a number of Protections From Death (the ability to survive one fatal blow) equal to their level. This makes them ''really'' useful for level-springboarding, since they don't regenerate the "hits" if you run off to heal. Find one you can survive one hit from, attack it, retreat until you heal and repeat until it dies.

Added DiffLines:

* Minor example in ''VideoGame/RealmsOfTheHaunting'': one armor in the mansion is said to stink to high heaven and have flies surrounding it, and it's ''heavily'' implied to be housing a corpse. If you pay attention you'll see that, unlike other suits, [[ParanoiaFuel this one will be facing you no matter the angle you view it from]].

* The Skull Knight of ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' is an empty suit of armor probably inhabited by the spirit of [[spoiler:Emperor Gaiseric, who conquered the world in ancient times]], and he's implied to be leading Guts down the same path. Exactly how they merged is a mystery, though elves might have been involved.

* ''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]]
