* ''{{Metroid}}'' - Samus Aran's Power Suit. The giant shoulders appear starting with the Varia Suit which has increased shielding as well as the ability to function perfectly in more extreme temperatures causing many players to suggest that some of the components for these features are housed in the shoulders. So don't worry, [[FanWank the shoulders are actually just the heating and AC units for her suit.]] The giant shoulders came to be because in ''VideoGame/MetroidIIReturnOfSamus'', the Game Boy didn't have color, so the developers drew the Varia Suit with big shoulder pads to show the player that they got a new suit.

** The [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/gundam/images/3/3e/Graze_Ein_Front_View.png/revision/latest?cb=20160321131711 Graze Ein]], being the largest Graze variant, it naturally has the biggest shoulders of all the Grazes. The "doom" part is also literal, they're as big as they are so they can store a pair of gun-wielding sub-arms.

** SpaceMarine PowerArmor is famous for its [[http://1d4chan.org/wiki/File:Pauldronius.png enormous pauldrons]] which cover a Marine's arm from shoulder almost to elbow (the page pic is an extreme exaggeration). This is justified in the background, as their armor was originally designed for close-quarters combat (their precursors, the Thunder Warriors, actually used tackling moves in melee combat, and in some descriptions Assault Marines still do this). The pauldrons are auto-responsive and shift when the wearer wants to look past them, although in most modern depictions looking over them isn't an issue for a Marine. Their most obvious use is to display the Marine's chapter badge (on the left pauldron) and, in many cases, his squad type and number (on the right), although they also protect the actuators that give a PowerArmour-clad Marine his incredible upper body strength.

* Prince Vladimir Tzepesci of the ''IronKingdoms'', a Khadoran warcaster based on [[{{Dracula}} Vlad Tepes]], has very large shoulder pads on his armor; his more experienced Epic version takes this to ridiculous extremes. This has given him the FanNickname of "Captain No-Peripheral Vision".

* Many of Ghaleon's designs in the ''Franchise/{{Lunar}}'' series (and he gets rather a lot of costumes) have big shoulder guards. [[spoiler:The Magic Emperor armor]] is an obvious example, but his [[spoiler:final boss]] design in [[LunartheSilverStar Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete]] takes it to a whole other level -- it almost looks like some sort of architectural model sprouting off of him.
