** Notably, Gohan and Krillin once used sets of these armor, and Gohan noted that the shoulders ''don't'' get in the way because the material is flexible enough.
*** Later on, Gohan get another set of these, alongside a BadassCape, when he request a set of clothes designed just like Piccolo's.

* Most, if not all, of the Zoalords in {{Guyver}} have these as part of their formal robes (with one notable costume having shoulders almost as wide as its wearer was tall). Many Zoanoids (and the Gigantic) have weapons or other functions built into large shoulder-pods.

** Iron Man [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 2020]] Arno Stark's armor is largely based on the classic red-and-gold suit, but most notably with the original red shoulder rings replaced by thicker, saw-toothed gold shoulder rings.

* ''StarCraft'' and its many flavors of CMC armor. The armor's strength and shoulder size are positively correlated.
** And in the sequel, contrary to the page quote Tychus ''does'' actually make two attempts at tackling people. One successful, one not as much.

* Subverted with Darkrai from ''{{Pokemon}}'', who appears to be sinister-looking but only does its job if it is threatened. Played straight in the ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' series games, however.

* ''{{Transformers}}''
** Lockdown of ''TransformersAnimated'' has these built into his body. [[SpikesOfVillainy With spikes]]. Somewhat appropriate, since he's a big, bad bounty hunter who lives for "upgrades". Bonus points might be awarded for his car mode, which has a huge spoiler to go with the look. Megatron and Blitzwing have, basically, towers for shoulders. So do Blurr and Bulkhead ([[CrowningMomentOfAwesome the latter of which can turn his into a chair]]). [[TheStarscream Starscream's]] shoulders are pretty wide as well.\\

** [[PhysicalGod Primus]] also sports massive shoulders in [[http://tfwiki.net/w2/images2/2/27/WarWithinPrimus.jpg one of his designs]]. It's somewhat [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by the fact that his alternate mode is [[GeniusLoci the planet Cybertron]] and his shoulders are just [[KibblesAndBits massive chunks of the planet]].

* Zio from ''PhantasyStarIV'', whose pads could each double as a chest plate. Shoulders are really important: lots of enemies have huge shoulder armor (or just shoulders), as do some of the [=PCs=]. The trope is played straight, though: the more evil someone is, the bigger their shoulders. The final form of the final boss? Two-thirds of its mass is stuff on its shoulders.
