** In ''{{Literature/UseOfWeapons}}'' the protagonist also wears powered armour/spacesuit at one stage, which he requisitioned from the Culture (though he very pointedly does not want a sentient suit). At one point he turns up his suit's strength in order to lift a large stone object but has to be very careful that he's in the correct stable and braced position.

** ''Literature/LegacyOfTheAldenata'' has the main character design and then command units of ACS against the invading [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Posleen]], powered at one point by actual [[GreenRocks Glowing Green Rocks]] (appropriated alien heavy plant power cells).

*** The predecessors of the Zone Trooper armor and the Wolverine are the Mobius suit and the X-O Powersuit, respectively. The former was built by Dr. Ignatio Mobius during the First Tiberium War mainly to protect the wearer from exposure to [[GreenRocks Tiberium]]. His daughter modified it to be effective in combat. The X-O Powersuit was designed for combat and was armed to the teeth (an 8mm minigun, a 20 MW laser, and a 35mm rocket launcher). Presumably, the less powerful but more cost-effective Wolverine was designed as the mass-produced version.

** Most military and paramilitary forces have a small number of Power Armor units, though cost and power requirements limit them operationally. Even the police departments of some major urban centers (NYC and Los Angeles, in particular) have Power Suit Squads in their SWAT units to handle super-powered threats, though they are mostly effective in stopping low-level Ragers rather than addressing coordinated attacks.

* ''{{Guyver}}: Bio-Boosted Armour'', a manga from the late 80's, along with a one shot OVA from '86, a twelve part mini-series released by studio L.A. Heroes released from 89 to about 92-93 and also a twenty six episode series that expanded more on the manga than the twelve episode one, that was released in 2005 by Creator/FUNimation Studios. This series uses this concept to its fullest extent. It starts out with a high schooler named Sho Fukamachi walking in the woods near the school with his friend Tetsuro Segawa. There they hear and see the aftermath of a huge explosion and see something hurdling through the sky towards them. Sho picks it up to and points out that it's alien looking, when he all of sudden trips and smacks his face against it and it starts to encompass him. Later when Tetsuro is in immediate danger from a secret world government style organization known as Chronos, Sho clad in this "bio" metal armor then destroys the ones troubling Tetsuro. Afterward he seemingly regains consciousness while still in the armor and notes that it is DEFINITELY alien.

* Building your own suit of power armor is apparently a pretty common ambition of [[GadgeteerGenius gadgeteer]] and [[MadScientist devisor]] students at [[WhateleyUniverse Whateley Academy]]. There is even a course on the subject, "Applied Defensive Technologies", where the term project is to build a working suit of powered armor (though at least some students have already done so when they start the class).
