* In the Heaven's Feel Route of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', [[spoiler: Dark Sakura ''seems'' to kill Kotomine, leaving only his priestís robes behind. But in the true ending, when Shirou goes to destroy Avenger, he finds Kotomine barring his path. This is the only scene in the entire game where Kotomine ''isn't'' wearing his coat, and it's also his most badass. He manages to give a really long speech ''and'' nearly beat Shirou to death, despite the fact that his heart completely ceased to function ''hours ago''.]]

* WebVideo/{{Lindybeige}} makes a point to generally do this in combat situations, since cloaks tend to wave around wildly while in high motion combat, and generally get in the way. Lloyd recounts one time while [[{{LARP}} LARPing]], someone slipped and fell when Lloyd started running in a direction while his comrade was standing on his cloak. Otherwise, he feels that a thick, woolen cloak is incredibly useful for keeping warm and dry while on long marches through cold or rainy climes.

* {{GURPS}} Martial Arts supplement included an optional rule intended to simulate this very trope called "Bulletproof Nudity". This rule gave characters combat bonuses if they were wearing less clothing. The key was that you couldn't just walk around in a thong, you had to normally wear appropriate clothing and ''take it off'' or have it [[ClothingDamage shredded]] during the fight.

** It should be noted that only three of them ([[spoiler:Sasori, Kisame, and Kakuzu]][[note]]Four if you count Asura Pain.[[/note]]) took off their cloaks intentionally. The rest lost theirs as a result of ClothingDamage, except for [[spoiler:Hidan and Deva Pain]] who just had theirs ripped open. However, when Konan fights [[spoiler:Tobi]], [[spoiler:Konan dies with her cloak still on (although it opens a little after she dies)]], while [[spoiler:Madara survives despite losing his cloak]].

* Necromancers in ComicBook/DeathVigil have this habit of taking their tops off when it's time to get serious, as the Sigils they use are only useable when they are visible.

** After arriving [[BigDamnHeroes in the nick of time]] to [[strike:interfere]] help out with Akane's match against the [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Dojo Destroyer]], Ranma smiles smugly and takes off her Chinese jacket, then pulverizes the foe in a single panel. One wonders why she even bothered taking it off.
