** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline Online]]'', Skaafin are an intelligent form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] in service to Clavicus Vile, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[DealWithTheDevil Bargains]] and [[LiteralGenie Wishes]]. While most wear some form of bronze-like armor, Skaafin Tyrants are fully encased head to toe in thick, heavy armor and make for a much tougher opponent.

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ: Buu's Fury'', in Babidi's Spacheship, there are [[EliteMook Majin Warriors]]. By that point, you can kill them with a few hits, though some have breakable shields.

* ''{{VideoGame/Fallout 3}}'': as the PC progresses in levels, the Super Mutants begin to appear decked out in more and more armor. Throughout the series, human adversaries, such as the Enclave troops, tend to have better armor as the player progresses.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'':
** The ultimate antagonists of ''VideoGame/Fallout2'' are the Enclave, whose standard gear is PoweredArmor that the majority of weapons can't do ''any'' damage at all to. If you want to fight them, you'd best get some weapons that do a lot of damage per shot--or a lot of [[AntiArmor pulse grenades]].

* ''{{Exalted}}'': If you hate and/or are hated by [[TheEmpire the Realm]], you start by fighting non-Awakened-Essence Realm enforcers. Survive that, and you'll have to fight the Wyld Hunt ([[PhantasySpelling sic]]), elite Realm squads usually led by a Dragon-blooded [[spoiler:and sometimes Sidereals too]]. Survive ''that'', and you'll eventually fight Dragon-blooded riding Warstriders; though at this point you're usually a OneManArmy and don't have to worry about Realm incursion to your territory.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' has the near-equal distribution of humanoid enemies in heavy and light armour and neither is generally treated as being better than other. Played straighter in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' in that tougher goblins and skeletons would always have a lot more armour than the basic varieties.

** Generally averted for generic NPC
enemies in heavy such as Bandits who come with a wide variety of armor types and light armour and neither is generally offensive skills, none of which are treated as being better than other. Played straighter in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' in that tougher goblins and skeletons would always have a lot more armour any "better" than the basic varieties.others. In fact, an enemy with high-level light armor (or no armor at all, as the case may be for an enemy mage) may be far more dangerous that one decked out in lower-quality heavy armor.
** Played straight for "creature" or undead enemies. Generally, if you see a heavily armored goblin/Falmer/skeleton, you'll have a tougher fight on your hands than you would with its non-armored kin.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'' has squads of EliteMooks with riot shields who show up in certain areas if you're suspected of being nearby. Explosives and shots from behind the shield both work, but there's a special sense of accomplishment reserved for those who [[AttackItsWeakPoint headshot them right through the eye slot.]]

* A few times in ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'' 3, you encounter troops in effectively bulletproof heavy armour who also wield [[MoreDakka LMGs]]. Only headshots will take them down. There are two varieties: The first kind needs multiple headshots to gun down, but are thankfully rare, with a cutscene every time one appears. The second only needs one and can be knocked down with body shots to make the finishing shot easier, but are also more common.
* ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor: Frontline'' had enemies in body armour that had around twice the health of regular enemies. ''Medal of Honor: Airborne'' upped the ante with the Nazi Storm Elites, who wielded machine guns and who could tank more than half a mag of assault rifle fire and could even survive a direct hit from a rocket launcher. ''Warfighter'' had a handful of terrorist Heavy Gunners who were similar to Nazi Storm Elites, but who were less noticeable since they were much rarer and the game didn't emphasize their presence.

** ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare 2'' and ''Modern Warfare 3'' has Juggernauts (although they only appear in Spec Ops missions, not in the main campaign). They can take all kinds of damage without even flinching before they go down, requiring more than 2 full mags of assault rifle fire to bring down. Unfortunately under certain circumstances they prove to be fast-charging {{Lightning Bruiser}}s...

* There were experiments with issuing body armour to soldiers in UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, but was considered too heavy and cumbersome to be worth it. Still, a few special units sometimes used it. For example, snipers and machine gun crews sometimes wore it to protect against enemy snipers (the bullets didn't have so much power at long range), tank crews wore it to protect against shrapnel, and German assault troopers occasionally wore it because it was quite useful against pistol bullets and melee weapons.

* ''{{Franchise/Halo}}'''s Hunters. At first they could [[GlassCannon easily be taken down]] with a single pistol shot to their (conveniently bright orange) weak points, but as the series went on, they became [[LightningBruiser tougher, faster, and harder to hit in their weak points]].
