* Attempted, on the titular mecha, multiple times, by the main team of [[OneManBrigade Karlstein Agents]] from Dorssia in Geass' SpiritualSuccessor, ''Anime/ValvraveTheLiberator''. The first time, they did in the original scientist team, but failed to get the mecha. Even after it was proven that [[spoiler: anyone other than the Academy students will be killed if they attempt to pilot them,]] they kept trying - [[spoiler: because their captain was actually a Magius, the AncientConspiracy alien parasites whose power the Valvraves use.]]

The time after that proved that Valvraves include anti-hijack mechanisms, and that seemingly made them theft-proof. Which was then disproven when the DiscOneFinalBoss stole one of the supposedly-inactive ones right from under everyone's noses.]]

* In ''Anime/GundamReconguistaInG'' the G-Self changes hands several times-- Originally Raraiya's, it quickly gets stolen by the Amerians after she bails out, who let Aida pilot. Then it's captured by the Capital Guard who have Bellri pilot it, but stolen back by Aida in short order (...though Bellri remains the main pilot).
** Much later, the main characters steal a fairly ridiculous number of mobile suits from G-IT Labs, though there's not much done to stop them.

** A Japanese Zero that crashed intact in the Aleutian Islands was extensively examined and tested by the Americans, who developed new tactics exploit every flaw they could find in Japanese design practices. The Axis powers similarly used captured Allied hardware and used it for their own purposes, including both study and operational use. For example, the Nazis greatly improved the reliability of their semi-automatic rifles by studying the gas system of captured Soviet SVT-40s.

* In ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': The same as in canon, Bardiel hijacked Unit-03. Unlike canon, [[spoiler:Hikari was the pilot, and Gendo forced Asuka's Eva to kill her.]]
-->"In transit, another Angel struck, infecting Unit 03. Upon initial activation, it took over and destroyed the testing facility outside Tokyo-3. It disabled the still inactive Unit 04, critically wounding the pilot, before it began to advance on the city."

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'', this is surprisingly not the case with Gundam Barbatos. However, it is the case with it's sister unit, Gundam Gusion. After Tekkadan defeats the [[ShadowArchetype Brewers]], they salvage the Gusion, [[GoodCostumeSwitch remove it's heavy armor]], and give it to Akihiro. Akihiro's previous suit was also jacked, but was a mook suit.
