* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' has a few varieties. The simplest are the exo-suits worn by Spike and Daniel in ''[[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 Generation 1]]''--these are modified space suits that confer protection and limited transformation ability. Headmasters and Targetmasters in the American continuity are more advanced forms, which grant improved protection and firepower as well as full transformation abilities, effectively making them one with their partners. In addition, the Autobot Pretenders in ''[[TransformersSuperGodMasterforce Masterforce]]'' can summon powered armour as an intermediate form between their Human and Transformers forms.

* [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Master Chief John-117's]] MJOLNIR armor is one of the most well-known video game examples. A fusion-powered, [[DeflectorShield energy-shielded]] suit of death that makes the operator so powerful that he can ''[[SuperStrength flip tanks over]]'' with little effort. It is literally ''too much'' for a normal human to take, which is why only SPARTAN II soldiers, who are biologically and cybernetically enhanced to post-human levels, can don the suits.

** HYDRA invent a remote controlled version based on the Destroyer. It's flight capable, extremely powerful and capable of shapeshifting weapons - however, what makes it dangerous is the fact that it's being controlled by major league {{Badass}} Baron Zemo and that its first set of opponents are kids in (mostly) their first life or death fight who have just been (temporarily bootstrapped to god-like levels of power and are only scratching the surface of their capabilities - as [[Creator/Nimbusllewelyn the author]] remarks, they ''should'' have ripped it apart in a matter of minutes and more skilled and experienced combatants do just that (plus, they're hinted to lose a little something once they go into mass production and under mass mental control.)

* Lampshaded in the blog-novel ''Literature/FlyoverCity!'' – crime fighting archer Sureshot is something of a joke until he dons his 90s-style cyber armor… transforming him into an even ''bigger'' joke.

** In ''VideoGame/XCOM2'' the research project for the third tier of armor is explicitly referred to as powered armor. It comes in three variants: medium armor (Warden Armor), which provides light armor, moderate hp, and an extra item slot; light armor (Wraith Suit), which provides moderate hp, mobility, and dodge, and gives the user the ability to grapple and walk through walls; and heavy armor (W.A.R. Suit), which provides heavy armor, moderate hp, a heavy weapon slot, and allows the user to act as temporary cover for teammates.
