** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', players were able to enchant rings with permanent Daedric armor summoning spells. Depending on the value of the ring and the soul captured, you could have full instant armor, without the need for repairs since all you needed to do was remove the ring and put it back on to have a new set. Spells and other enchantments provided temporary versions of the same thing, which were subject to [[{{Mana}} magicka]] costs and the recharging of the enchanted item.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' the cultists that are responsible for killing the Emperor are able to conjure their custom weapons and armor from thin air by way of magic. The equipment immediately fades upon their death. (A clever setup, since it allows for {{Mooks}} who provide a real challenge, while leaving nothing worth looting behind.) The player can learn similar spells (which work the same way but conjure a different type of armor), and with the spell customization system, even design a spell that summons a full set of plate armor, sword, and shield with the press of a single button.

** The "Bound Armor" spell is available throughout most of the series and has this effect. It is a [[SummonMagic Conjuration]] spell which temporarily summons a set of Daedric armor for the caster. Flavor text various implies that the armor is either made out of pure [[{{Mana}} Magicka]] or is summoned from Oblivion itself (much like summoning actual [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]]). It can quickly de-squishify your SquishyWizard.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', players were able it is possible to enchant rings items with "constant effect" Bound Armor spells. With a high value item (meaning it can hold more powerful enchantments) and a powerful [[YourSoulIsMine Soul Gem]], it is possible to enchant the item to summon a permanent Daedric full set of Bound Armor (equivalent to full Daedric) as soon as you equip it. And the armor summoning spells. Depending on the value of the ring and the soul captured, you could have full instant armor, without the need for never needs repairs since all either, as if it gets damaged, you needed to do was can simply remove the ring item and put reequip it back on to have for a new set.

** SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}} of the Marvel Universe has been known to do this, from time to time, using his metal-control. Ranging from reconstructing his own broken armor from nearby junk, to forging himself into a gigantic steel titan! At one point, he disassembled his suit, sitting on a chair nearby, into sand-sized grains and re-formed it around himself, in seconds.

* In ''Videogame/{{Warframe}}'', the Rhino [[PoweredArmor warframe]] can use his Void powers to give himself additional armor, in the form of a coating of silver (or [[BlingBlingBang gold for Rhino Prime]]) metal. The Chroma warframe can cast aside his outer pelt to act as a turret, [[ShedArmorGainSpeed losing armor in exchange for gaining speed in the process]], and the pelt can be recalled almost instantly. The Grineer councilor Vay Hek gets in on the fun with the ability to call in a HumongousMecha orbital insertion within seconds, which he [[MetaMecha plugs his augmented body]] into.

* Referred to as Ex-Quipping in ''Manga/FairyTail.'' Instant Armor is Erza's particular specialty, and she sure has [[UnlimitedWardrobe a hell of a lot of armors]]. 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.

* 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.
