* [[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.

Added DiffLines:

* ComicBook/{{Batwoman}} has tasers installed in her gloves in the ComicBook/New52. Even without these, her gloves also feature knobby protrusions along the top knuckles, making them functionally similar to brass knuckles.

* ''Film/TerminatorGenisys'': To fight T-3000, whose only weakness is magnets, the good T-800 crafts a pair of gauntlets out of magnetic coils scavenged from loudspeakers.

** A pair of WolverineClaws is the weapon of choice for the Imperial Guard general, with the right one mounting a bolter as well. In ''Dark Crusade'', the bolter can be upgraded first into a double-barreled one, then into a plasma gun, while the claws themselves can be upgraded first into [[BlingOfWar master-crafted ones]], then straight-up replaced with a pair of golden power fists that do even more damage despite no longer having the claws.

* General Electric's "Hardiman" system has particularly terrifying hydraulic claws (as may be seen [[http://cyberneticzoo.com/?p=2656 here]]). They'd need the whole exoskeleton to be worn to use in a standalone fashion, and GE [[WhatMightHaveBeen never solved]] [[AwesomeButImpractical potentially lethal positive feedback loops]] in the control system. Man amplifiers are coming back into fashion though...

* The tarch, a combination of a metal glove, a sword, and a shield, all rolled into one. Used by 16th-century Russian soldiers when defending against a siege. Not very useful in open combat. See [[http://www.metal-soldiers.com/i/M15.jpg here]] for an image.

** The Engineer update yielded The Gunslinger, a mechanical glove that boosts the Engie's health and makes mini-sentries. On top of that, every third punch with the mechanical hand that connects has a 100% chance of a critical hit.
