** In ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', Star-Lord relies on a Ravager uniform with built-in jet boots and a helmet that allows him to survive in the void of space. Downplayed at the end by the revelation that [[spoiler: he's [[HalfHumanHybrid half human, half something "ancient"]]]], and by the [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2 second film]], this trope is pretty much completely averted when [[spoiler: Peter discovers that his other half is [[PhysicalGod Celestial]] and how to use his powers]].

As of ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'' Peter is [[spoiler: [[StatusQuoIsGod back to playing it straight]] since he [[BroughtDownToBadass lost his powers]] after destroying [[BigBadDad Ego]] in the [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2 previous film]]]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'', with the enchanted armor. For instance, the Depth Strider enchantment which allows you walk through water at top speed. Take your boots off, and you're waterlogged as normal.

* In some early localized manuals for Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog games, they make the apocryphal claim that Sonic's speed comes from his sneakers, but this info has ''never'' been taken as canon--not even early continuities such as the [[Comicbook/SonicTheHedgehogPromoComic Promo Comic]], the cartoons and Archie and Fleetway comics support this theory. In-game he does have [[SprintShoes Power Sneakers]] which can temporarily triple his existing speed, though with the introduction of the [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogCD Super Peel Out]], Sonic can run at the same speed naturally anyway.

The presence of numerous characters who can run at high speeds in the series make it clear that its just a natural ability for Sonic and has nothing to do with his footwear.

* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney'' has the Demonica armor. Combines survival gear comparable to a suit of PoweredArmor and a on-board CPU, which contains numerous forms of scanning, like terrain reconnaissance, mapping enemy identifier, field-altering technology (opens locked doors and/or reveals concealed ones), serves as the home for all your demons, and an absolutely absurd amount of programs to bolster its natural capabilites.

* ''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!

** Played completely straight for her mother Queen Hippolyta, whose strength (in line with ClassicalMythology) stems directly from her golden girdle. This was ported over to Diana herself in the Creator/LyndaCarter TV series (see Live-Action TV below).

* The ''VideoGame/{{Ar tonelico|MelodyOfElemia}}'' series: Most Reyvateils literally cosplay as a [[AndYourRewardIsClothes game mechanic.]] Their custom clothes are created from their mental images, therefore invokes different stats, biorhythms, and passive abilities. Interestingly in the first game, the [[GameBreaker best outfit]] for Aurica is [[FanService the one that she's only wearing towels.]]

* ''ComicBook/{{Superlopez}}'': This is how Superlópez's powers worked at the very beginning, when it was a weekly comic strip. Eventually this was rebooted, but still appeared in the storyline ''Los Alienígenas'', where he was powerless without his supersuit.

** And also in ''El caserón fantasma'' (The Ghostly Mansion), when a sleepy Juan López in pajamas jumps through a window and almost falls to his death. He even lampshades he had forgotten to change into his superclothes.
