* Overlaps somewhat with DisposableVehicleSection in ''VideoGame/SpyHunter''. Once the Interceptor is reduced to 25% of its maximum health (or on player command in the sequels), it turns into a motorcycle. The two-wheeled Interceptor is lighter and faster, with better handling and acceleration, but loses a significant portion of its protective body panels, its [[MagneticWeapons Rail Gun]], [[NitroBoost Turbo Boost]], and all of its defensive weapons.

** In ''Series/KamenRiderKabuto'', all Kamen Riders initially transform into a bulky Masked Form, which can shed its armor with the command "Cast Off" to become the sleek and [[SuperSpeed super-fast]] Rider Form.

to:

** Subverted in ''Series/KamenRiderAgito''. The manmade G3 system has a function which allows the user to shed his armor to allow for more speed. However, it's more or less an emergency switch that allows the user drop the cumbersome armor to make a quick getaway from a dangerous situation, not a form of MultiformBalance. It's only used once in the series by DirtyCoward Toru Hojo.
** An organic version happens in ''Series/KamenRiderFaiz'', where the Dragon Orphenoch sheds most of his skin and muscle mass to turn into a sleeker skeletal looking form, which is fast enough to keep up with the Faiz Accel form that's reputed to be as fast as the speed of sound.
** In ''Series/KamenRiderKabuto'', all Kamen Riders initially transform into a bulky Masked Form, which can shed its armor with the command "Cast Off" to become the sleek and [[SuperSpeed super-fast]] Rider Form. The Worm, the enemy race of the series, can do a similar thing, where a bulky Salisworm is able to shed its skin to molt into a stronger but sleeker form, able to move at the same SuperSpeed as the Rider Forms can.



** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' has something similar to Kabuto above where the Riders start out in a bulky, SuperDeformed "Level 1" form and then have a "Level 2" form where they shed their bulky armor, becoming less physically powerful but much quicker and more agile.

to:

** The third form of the title character in ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' resembles a heavily armored samurai. His transformation to his final form involves him throwing off his armor to reveal a sleeker form. While his final form is not explicitly shown to be faster than the previous, [[AllThereInTheManual the official website]] does state there is an increase in speed and agility.
** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' has something similar to Kabuto above where the Riders start out in a bulky, SuperDeformed "Level 1" form and then have a "Level 2" form where they shed their bulky armor, becoming less physically powerful but much quicker and more agile. Later on, Ex-Aid himself gains his Level 99 form, which is basically a suit of very bulky armor. Ex-Aid can eject himself from this suit of armor, allowing for greater mobility without apparent loss of power.

* In ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies 2: It's About Time'', the Pharaoh Zombie is initially the slowest zombie in the game since it's wearing its sarcophagus, but that makes him one of the toughest with an insane amount of health, immunity to being paralyzed, and the fact it can survive an explosive plant, which are usually a OHKO. Once it takes enough damage, the sarcophagus breaks and while he still has a ZombieGait, he's one of the fastest zombies in the game.

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Part 3'', Jean-Pierre Polnareff's stand, the knight-like Silver Chariot can shed its armor for a more skeletal, much faster form. When the armor is off, Silver Chariot can move so fast that it seems [[DoppelgangerSpin that there are five of them]]. Avdol only manages to defeat Polnareff by setting up a trap with his Crossfire Hurricane attack. [[ForgotAboutHisPowers Unfortunately], the only ''other'' time Polnareff uses this ability is when he becomes BrainwashedAndCrazy and tries to kill the Joestar crew again.

** The move Autotomize causes the user to shed part of its body armor in order to gain speed. This raises speed by two levels and also lightens the user.

Added DiffLines:

* Jil's armor in ''Anime/TheTowerOfDruaga'' is extremely heavy, surprising anyone who tries to pick up a piece of it when he's not wearing it. The advantages of this are not made apparent until his final confrontation against [[spoiler: his older brother Neeba who holds the power of a reincarnated Druaga]] in the finale of the 2nd half. His armor is lost piece by piece until he's left totally unarmored. Even he is stunned by how fast he can suddenly move and how high he can jump when unencumbered by its weight.

*** Type: Null also shows this when it evolves into Silvally -- Type: Null's heavy helmet breaks apart, giving Silvally the boost in base speed to match the rest of its stats.
