** The start of the same arc also sees [[VillainProtagonist Midnight]] develop a new suit of armor for herself, made from [[spoiler: [[TheStarscream Ai's]] remains]]. It is also magically warded, specifically to counter Jinx's hex magic (which her old suit was vulnerable to).

** It occured twice in ''[[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Gundam X]]'':
*** The X-Divider was more of a downgrade in a sense that Garrod was unable to use the Sat Cannon. But it did turn him to a formidable pilot.
*** The original Sat Cannon was borderline useless anyway since it could only be used at night when the moon was out, Tiffa had to mentally activate it the first time for Garrod to be able to use it, it had a awkward firing position that rendered the Gundam helpless while firing, and it was pure barely controllable destructive force. The Double X corrected all but the night problem (it had Jamil's brainwave data taken from the first Gundam X so Garrod could arm the weapon on his own, it swung over the shoulders allowing the Gundam to do other things while charging, and it was easier to control the firing angle. Until then the Divider weapon was more effective at it could be fired anytime by anyone with the beams much easier to control. Also the Divider and Double X corrected the original GX's other weapon issues by having both a shield and a rifle (the first was a combination rifle shield thing which was a glaring weakness because both are generally needed to block and exchange fire in a Gundam dogfight), both of which were superior upgrades on their own.

*** The
original Sat X was rebuilt into the X-Divider, as it lost its most powerful weapon, the Satellite Cannon. On the other hand, the Cannon was borderline useless anyway much of the time since it could only be used at night when the moon was out, Tiffa had to mentally activate it the first time for Garrod to be able to use it, it had a awkward firing position that rendered the Gundam helpless while firing, it could only be fired once per battle, and when it was pure barely controllable the result was a gigantic, unwieldy beam of annihilation that caused tremendous collateral damage. The Divider's weapons may have been weaker in terms of destructive force. capability, but they were more effective as they could be fired anytime by anyone with the beams much easier to control. It also had its rifle separate from the shield, which was much easier to use than the combo rifle-shield the original X had.
*** Later, Garrod swaps out the X-Divider for the brand-new Double X Gundam, which brought back the Satellite Cannon.

* Miho's Panzer IV Ausf. D is the only tank from Ōarai to get an actual Mid-Season Upgrade in ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'', the girls swapping out its original cannon for a high velocity gun just before the semifinals (upgrading it to an Ausf. F2 configuration). The Panzer IV is upgraded again just before the FinalBattle, gaining additional armor "skirts" to make it an Ausf. H configuration. The only other tank from Ōarai to get an upgrade is Turtle Team's Panzer 38(t), which is converted into a Jagdpanzer 38(t) "Hetzer" tank destroyer before the final match.
