* In the said film, in the final battle scene, Ares created an armor reminiscent of his comic book appearance from metal and steel scrap lying around. He does this by telekinetically molding an armor around his body and melting eyeholes onto the helmet.

PoweredArmor is nice, but it takes time to put on and take off, and it's also kind of clunky which can make getting through narrow passages quite difficult depending on it's size, plus getting out of it in a hurry 'cuz you need to go to the loo can be a real pain. Wouldn't it be much nicer if you could just create a suit out of thin air -- or, alternately, out of whatever raw-materials happen to be handy -- whenever you need one? Well, if you've got PsychicPowers or FunctionalMagic, or just some really nifty gadgets, you can!

Lucy later develops a similar ability, allowing her to instantly change into clothing based on the Celestial Spirits that she summons and gain powers related to those spirits.

Can range in size from PoweredArmor to HumongousMecha and can also be used as a type of OneWingedAngel or SuperMode for the character in question. Note that we're not talking [[MacGyvering [=MacGyvered=]]] PoweredArmor here - rather, the armor is propelled and assembled by supernatural power of some sort, or {{teleport|ation}}ed in/assembled on the spot by {{Nanomachines}}. As a rule of thumb, if it takes more than a couple of minutes to assemble, it does not belong here.

* Implied in ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'', as the full Knights can apparently manifest [[PowerArmor Shardplate]] from thin air. None of the characters in the story proper have reached that level just yet, but in Dalinar's vision of the past, a Knight can be seen casually summonning and dismissing her helmet without it being seen off her head.

* One of the "Suit" power-ups in the PlatformGame ''{{Vexx}}'' works like this. The Rock Suit causes lava-hot stones to surround Vexx, making him invincible and letting him break throuh certain barriers. However, while covered in rock, he runs kind of awkwardly and he jumps like a chump. After a while, the rocks break off and he returns to normal.

** Samus can put her armor on or off through a mental trigger. WordOfGod states that instead of willing it on or off, Samus must constantly concentrate just to maintain the armor. To take it off, she simply stops concentrating. Note this only started in ''Other M''. Metroid Prime 3 and Fusion show that the armor stays on her when unconscious.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Diablo II}}'', 7 out of the 210 skills in the game are an example of this. Only the Druid, Necromancer, Assassin, and Sorceress can use any of them. All of them, except for the sorceress, who has access to 4 of the skills, can only use 1 of them. In ''VideoGame/DiabloIII''' the Wizard has three different types to choose from: ice, lightning or [[PureEnergy arcane]]. These are at least as offensive as they are defensive, either damaging or in some way weakening attackers.
