* The first episode of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory'' [[TropeNamer coined this trope's previous name]] through the title of the first episode: "Gundamjack". Here, AcePilot [[Pantheon/{{War}} Anavel Gato]] does just that with the [[NukeEm Nuke-loaded GP02A Physalis]], thus setting off the plot of the series. Of course, how the said hijacking was pulled off should go down in [[Awesome/{{Gundam}} the annals of badassery]]...

* 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, it ended up became an AceCustom in the hands of Norba.

However, Barbatos, as it is was already in the case possession of the protagonist faction from the get-go (though it was only used as a [[MundaneUtility power generator]] for the base previously.) This does get played very straight with it's sister unit, [[spoiler:[=McGillis'=] jacking of [[SuperPrototype Gundam Gusion.

* While not a balatant case of theft, Russia's first nuclear bomber, the Tupolev Tu-4A, was basically created from this; During the closing stages of WWII, several B-29 bombers damaged from missions over Japan crash-landed in Soviet territory. With the B-29 being the then-cutting edge plane of the war and Russia in need of a decent strategic bomber, Stalin refused to return the planes, and reverse-engineered them to create the Tu-4, which was essentially an exact copy of the B-29 except with [[MoreDakka bigger defensive guns.]]
