* 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.

* Parodied in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'': Elan hears that taking off heavy armor increases speed. Not understanding that clothing and light armor have no movement penalties, Elan concludes that he'll obtain maximum speed by [[FullFrontalAssault stripping completely naked]].

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. Unfortunately, Polnareff never uses this ability ever again despite it's extreme power, speed, and precision that too him years to achieve.

** In ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'', Accel's Trial SuperMode has sleeker and less bulky armor to go with its SuperSpeed ability.** ''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.

%%** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' has something similar to Kabuto above, where the Riders start out in a bulky, SuperDeformed "Level 1" form in which they have to defeat the MonsterOfTheWeek in its initial form as a giant CGI mass of mobile bacteria. After that's done and the monster evolves into a kaijin, the Rider can advance to Level 2, the sleeker and more distinctive form each one's promoted with. With the introduction of Level 3 in the fifth episode alone, though, Level 1 already looks to be getting phased out.

* The prehistoric marine crocodile ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metriorhynchus Metriorhynchus]]'' achieved this trope through millions of years of evolution--unlike most known crocodilians, ''Metriorhynchus'' lacked osteoderms (armored scales), having most likely lost them in its evolutionary history to make it a faster and more efficient swimmer. However, this left it [[FragileSpeedster more vulnerable to attack]], especially seeing as it shared the oceans with 20+ foot long leviathans like ''Liopleurodon''.

To quote Nigel Marvin in [[Series/WalkingWithDinosaurs one]] of the [[SeldomSeenSpecies very, VERY few media depictions of this creature]], "it has sacrificed defense for speed".
