See also PhlebotinumRebel, where the heroes hijack ''themselves''. May overlap with HighSpeedHijack if the vehicle is in motion when stolen. This isn't meaning a crossover between ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' and ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'', although that would be awesome.

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', Roman Torchwick steals a prototype Atlesian Paladin mech and uses it to fight Team RWBY. The girls have a hard time, but are able to defeat it, but in Season 3, Winter tells Weiss that the real deal would not fall to a team of teenagers. Sure enough, when the entire Atlas army is taken over, the teams are easily put through the wringer.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has at least two angels that hijack an Eva for their own personal use:
* Bardiel, a fungus-like angel that contaminates Unit-03 as it's transported through a storm (in which it was presumably hiding) and then takes control during its activation test, with it trying to kill the other Eva pilots. In both continuities, Shinji refuses to fight it because he realises that the human pilot is still trapped inside, and [[ManipulativeBastard Gendo]] activates the Dummy Plug system, which takes control of Unit-01 away from Shinji and forces it to destroy Unit-03 (almost an example of this trope in itself). The main difference between
''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion' here is that in NGE, Toji was the pilot, lost a leg to the Dummy Plug's attack, and was left incapacitated for the rest of the series; in ROE, the pilot is [[spoiler: Asuka, who presumably suffered far less severe injuries, as, when we see her after the TimeSkip in 3.33, she has only an eyepatch - which is implied to be hiding [[BodyHorror where Bardiel either mutated her to give her angelic traits, or outright ''merged with her head''.]]

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has at least two angels that hijack an Eva for their own personal use.
** Then, in ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion 2.0'', Mari jacks Unit-02 to fight against Zeruel. [[CurbStompBattle Not that it did ANY good, unfortunately]]. Nevertheless, it is interesting that she intentionally uses a feature of Unit-02 that Asuka never used (and may not even be aware of). The fact that she was able to Evajack it at all - given the nature of the Evangelions in the original series - has spawned a number of EpilepticTrees: [[spoiler: each Eva contains either part of or a fully intact human soul, and can only be piloted by the child of that person, or by someone who essentially [[CloningBlues is that the person]] (in Rei's case). Unit 02 contains the soul of Asuka's mother - Mari would only be able to use it if they have the same mother..or if she's an angel.]]

**The second example in NGE is of Kaworu, who doesn't actually pilot Unit-02 when he hijacks it - he floats nearby in the air while remotely controlling its movements, using it to break into Terminal Dogma in an attempt to cause [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Third Impact]].

* In ''Anime/MacrossPlus'', Isamu Dyson steals away the SuperPrototype YF-19 transforming fighter jet that he's been test-piloting for the U.N. Spacy. He did it in order to interfere with the public demonstration of X-9 Ghost, an advanced drone fighter that was suddenly selected as the next mainline fighter for U.N.S. instead of YF-19 or YF-21 that were previously competing for the position, and whose evaluation program hasn't even ended at that point. The interesting part is that Isamu is directly assisted by YF-19's chief designer who got enraged that the brass wanted to abandon the machine he spent years on building.

* In ''Enemy Mind'' you're an alien entity capable of infiltrating other minds and making them do your bidding. Because the game is a 2D sidescroller in space, this translates to being able to jump from ship to ship more or less to your heart's desire - and you do need to do this often, as the vessels you commandeer are scarce in both ammunition and armor, so it's unfeasible to get a ship you like and stick with it. It's worth noting that once you jump away, if the previous ship still has any ammunition left, the pilot will regain his will and try to shoot you down again. (If no ammo is left, they [[MadeOfExplodium spontaneously combust]].)

* TheHuntForRedOctober is all about this, with a Soviet submarine captain and his command crew intending to defect to the United States aboard a new, undetectable Soviet prototype sub. The story follows both the US and Soviets trying to catch the sub before the other side can, while avoiding a sufficiently large diplomatic incident that would incite World War III.
