* In ''Anime/HanaNoKoLunlun'', Lunlun's MagicalGirl power is practically this: by pointing her Flower Pin towards a flower and reciting a spell, she can be given an outfit... and magically adquires the physical/mental/etc. abilities of a person that would wear it. i.e., if Lunlun "puts on" a mountain climbing outfit, she becomes an amazing mountain climber herself for as long as she wears it.

* While the Spartan-[=IIs=] from ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' are already superhuman without their MJOLNIR armour, their suits add tremendously to their combat effectiveness by giving them even greater speed, strength, and durability, along with other features such as energy shields.
** Without their armour, SPARTAN-[=IIs=] could dent titanium armour plating, pulverise bones, and send heavy exoskeleton-wearing marines flying through the air with a single punch. With MJOLNIR, they could flip all sorts of armored vehicles, survive falls from low orbit, dodge bullets, and deflect missiles.
** All that said, they're still just about physically-on par with the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Sangheili]] (Elites) and [[KillerSpaceMonkey Jiralhanae]] (Brutes), who outnumber them by far. However, Spartans generally get the better of them with regards to skill; even expendable 12-year-old Spartan-[=IIIs=] without MJOLNIR are capable of single-handedly taking down Elite swordsmen in close quarters combat.
*** Spartan-[=IVs=] are supposed to be even better. Unlike [=IIs=] and [=IIIs=], they aren't made up of children but of veteran soldiers who get upgraded to SuperSoldier levels. This was the original intent of Project ORION (unofficially known as SPARTAN-I), which mostly failed due to the infancy of the technology.

Unlike a more traditional version of this trope; their augmentations aren't powerful as the [=IIs=] and [=IIIs=], they aren't made up [=IIIs=] (due to being modified as adults instead of children children), but their version of veteran soldiers who MJOLNIR is markedly superior to their predecessors'. In ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'', when [[spoiler:Spartan-IV Jameson Locke and Spartan-II Master Chief]] get upgraded into a fight, [[spoiler:Locke]]'s superior armor allows him to SuperSoldier levels.

* The protagonist of ''Chaos in the Tropics'' finds a magic piece of cloth granting her super strength, speed and durability. She can make equipment and other people temporarily super with it by wrapping it around them, and the cloth can change size so that she can use it as different items of clothing as she needs or wants them.

** During a period when her powers were stripped from her, she used the Sandals of Hermes and Bracers of Atlas to recreate her strength and speed. These were then "borrowed" by Cassie Sandsmark, to become the second ComicBook/WonderGirl. Cassie was later given innate powers by Zeus.

* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney'' has the Demonica armor. Combines combat armor, terrain reconnaissance visor technology, enemy identifier, survival gear comparable to a suit of PoweredArmor, field-altering technology (opens locked doors and makes doors whenever it finds a suitable place), serves as the home for all your demons, contains maps and an absolutely absurd amount of programs and powers. In addition, the equipment that goes with it (accessories) can inflate its power to unimaginable degrees. God Ring / Solomon Ring + Demonica Armor = TheJuggernaut.

This goes as far as having the ''armor'' gain levels instead of you!

** She avoids this in ''Iron Man2'', ''The Avengers'', and ''Captain America: The Winter Soldier'', but in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', Comicbook/BlackWidow wears a new suit that enhances each of her physical attacks with [[ShockAndAwe bursts of electricity]]. This is a bit of a subversion, as in the prior films, she still kicks a metric ton of ass [[BadassNormal without any powers]].

* In the Literature/WhateleyUniverse, Loophole is stronger than average, but she is far more powerful when she wears her power armor. Jericho has a power armor suit too, but he's designing it for medics and rescue workers. Phase has a superhero costume that provides protection against bullets, knife attacks, acid, and several other kinds of assaults, but she paid a huge amount for it.
