* The hem of Kate Kane's ComicBook/{{Batwoman}} cape is both weighted and sharp, allowing her to use it as a short-range weapon. She's also used it to entangle opponents and throw them around.

to:

* In ''[[ComicBook/RobinSeries Robin]]'' Tim eventually modified his cape so that he could easily detach it and have it wrap itself around anyone holding on to it which he uses to temporarily hold criminals while dealing with their friends before tying them up for the police to pick up.

* In ''MahouSenseiNegima'', Kuu Fei uses a cloth spear in her fight against Mana, made from a sash in her dress.
** [[FridgeBrilliance That may explain why disarming spells]] [[FanService destroys people's clothes.]]
* In ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' the MultiMeleeMaster Shigure is in a hot springs bath, completely naked and helpless. Surely, it's the right moment to attack her, right? Wrong! She can still use her hair ribbon (soaked in hot water) to defend herself, at least temporarily until she retrieves her sword. In a later chapter, when captured by the enemy, they imprison her naked... not to humiliate her, but because they're well aware of her abilities and don't want to give her ''anything'' she could potentially use as a weapon.

* In the ''{{Mechwarrior}}: Dark Age'' novel, ''Service for the Dead'', Anastasia Kerensky takes off her halter type garment and uses it to strangle her opponent in a duel for command of the Steel Wolves. Afterward, nobody bothers to question the crazy topless woman about the legality of using her clothing as a weapon in what was supposed to be an unarmed contest (though her opponent grabbed a knife from an observer after she came at him with the shirt the first time).

* [[{{Badass Grandpa}} Master Asia]] of ''[[Anime/{{Mobile Fighter G Gundam}} G Gundam]]'', [[{{Red Baron}} The Undefeated of the East]], uses the sash he wears around his waist as a weapon. ''To absurdly lethal effect''. He can turn it into a makeshift drill or whip and the thing appears to exhibit the properties of a steel blade... and this is when he ''isn't'' [[{{Ki Attacks}} empowering it with his own ki]]. With this, he can destroy [[HumongousMecha Mobile Suits]] while on foot. Remember, [[{{Old Master}} this is the man who taught]] [[{{Showy Invincible Hero}} Domon]] everything he knew. [[MemeticBadass Yes, he's just that good]].

* ''Literature/ChildrenOfDune'' featured a fight between [[BadAss Gurney Halleck]] and some mook. Halleck's strategy is to wait until the man lunges at him, then to [[CombatPragmatist throw his cloak over the guy's head and stab him through it]].

* In ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}'', LifeEnergy can be transmitted into inanimate objects, causing them to obey a simple command. This can be used to make clothing behave variously as CombatTentacles ("Grab things"), armor ("Protect me"), or PoweredArmor ("Give me strength"), enhancing the strength of the wearer.
** An enterprising Awakener once took this to its logical conclusion by telling a guardsman's tunic and pants to "fight for [him], as if they were [him]."
