** The Daedalus Attack used in ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Macross]]'' is basically the HumongousMecha version of a power fist, surrounding an aircraft carrier-sized arm with energy shields to pierce enemy armor, and then [[MacrossMissileMassacre firing countless missile batteries]] while the arm is still inside the target.
** ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' notably uses this a few times, once as a homage to the original Macross, [[spoiler:and in the GrandFinale ''obliterating'' a multi-kilometer mecha with the Power Fist of ''another'' multi-kilometer mecha]].
** By ''Anime/MacrossPlus'', the aforementioned energy shields have been miniaturized to the point where standard Valkyries have them, and a few pilots in this series and ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'' use them to perform a "Pinpoint Barrier Punch".

* ''TransformersCybertron'' joins this with CombiningMecha to give us Savage Claw Mode. Leobreaker transforms into a massive arm that can take the place of one of Optimus Prime's arms (Optimus must be in SuperMode, though). It becomes even more devastating when Leobreaker deploys his [[NitroBoost Cyber]] [[AmplifierArtifact Key]]-activated claws, which extend over the fist. With the claws out, Optimus can perform an attack inspired by Goldymarg's Shining Finger move. After Megatron creates Nemesis Breaker, an EvilKnockoff of Leobreaker, he can combine with N.B. for Dark Claw Mode.

* The cestus, the classical precursor to the boxing glove. It started out in ancient Greece as a hand-guard of woven leather thongs used in pankration. Later the Romans added metal plates, spikes and studs for bloody gladiatorial combat. [[DeadliestWarrior These things statistically triple the wearer's punching force.]]

* {{WebAnimation/RWBY}}: Yang Xiao Long of the titular team RWBY wields a set of [[MixAndMatchWeapon "dual ranged shot gauntlets"]]. Basically, she has two slabs of armour on her fists that she's strapped shotguns too that augment her punches.

* [[CuteBruiser Subaru]] and [[CoolBigSis Ginga]] from ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'' have one gauntlet each from the pair of [[MagicWand Devices]] [[AncestralWeapon that was once owned]] by their [[ActionMom mother]]. They each get their own set of [[RollerBladeGood armored roller-blades]] as well. Much cooler than it may sound. Also, Fate's armored left gauntlet (with the "Thunder Arm" ability) is a defensive variant.
