After a while, King Kai tells him to put it back on, telling him that the other Saiyans-- who he's here to prepare to fight-- use the same gear while training in even ''higher'' gravity.

* Inverted in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamF91''. The titular Gundam's incredible speed causes high output and use of its armor Biocomputer require tremendous cooling, and one solution turned out to be the Metal Peel-off Effect (MEPE). Basically it transfers heat up and for its outer layers of armor material and dissipates it, with the added effect of playing merry hell on an opponent's visual sensors as [[SpeedEchoes they continue to burn off.register a mobile suit where there are only dissipated armor particles]]. (Later versions of the F91 remove this by limiting its output and using more advanced cooling materials, but it's made clear that it ''can'' be restored.)

* Chirico does this in the [[{{Anime/ArmoredTrooperVOTOMS}} Big Battle OVA]], shedding a full sixth of a standard Scopedog's weight off to create the Light Scopedog custom unit. (This sort of customization is also pretty standard in the setting.)

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080WarInThePocket'', the NT-1 "Alex" is outfitted with a special Chobam Armor which makes it incredible resilient, but kills its mobility. Once it's ejected, the suit is much faster. However, as it was made for Newtype Amuro Ray, the very Oldtype Christina [=McKenzie=] is out of her league with it.

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.
