* Lampshaded and affectionately parodied in ''WebVideo/YuYuHakushoAbridged'' when Hiei fights Seiryu. [[CombatCommentator Kuwabara asks Kurama]] if Hiei can win the fight, and the GenreSavvy Kurama replies that since Hiei has removed his shirt his powers will be dramatically increased as a result. Sure enough, Hiei wins the fight in a CurbStompBattle. -->'''Kuwabara:''' Do you think the little guy can handle this?\\ '''Kurama:''' Seiryu doesn't even stand a chance.\\ '''Yusuke:''' What do you mean? \\ '''Kurama:''' Don't you see? Hiei's taken off his shirt. It's anime law. Once a male [[ShonenDemographic shonen hero]] removes his shirt, his attributes all increase exponentially. [BattleAura starts glowing around Hiei] Seiryu is doomed.

* Long coats in ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' often serve as armor, making exercising this trope stupid at best and suicidal at worst.

Everyone knows that [[BadassLongcoat wearing a longcoat]][[labelnote:*]]feel free to mentally substitute BadassCape in this description as needed[[/labelnote]] is one of the surest ways to show that you’re a {{Badass}}, because nothing says “don’t fuck with me” more than having a long dark coat billowing out behind you as you walk. So how does one ratchet up the stakes when such a character is ''really'' [[TheGlovesComeOff serious about delivering a beatdown]]? They take that coat ''off''.

* In ''HyakujitsuNoBara'', Klaus throws off his coat when he challenges Taki to fencing in front of the troops. Bonus points for the ShirtlessScene, {{sarashi}}-like bandages, and being blasé about the fact he still was recovering from very serious injuries.

He does it more than once in the anime.
* Yami Yugi of ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' fame repeatedly throws off or switches his jacket to "cape-style" when he's ready to get serious in a duel. Oddly enough, while it's a recurring trait in the manga, in the anime he only ever does it once.

* In ''TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', Ghirahim actually teleports his robe away before fighting Link. [[spoiler:He later powers up and removes everything else as well, including his ''skin'', revealing his true ChromeChampion form underneath]].

Added namespaces.
* In the "UsefulNotes/AlCapone [[TheMafia gang]] vs. Jesse James gang" simulation of ''DeadliestWarrior'', Al Capone sheds his longcoat in preparation for the [[FisticuffsBoss fight]] with Jesse James. [[spoiler: Unfortunately for him, Capone loses the fight when one of James' men [[BoomHeadshot shoots him]] through some jail bars.]] * In the ''{{Smallville}}'' season 9 finale "Salvation", Clark Kent disposes of his coat before proceeding to [[spoiler: kick Zod's ass.]] [[BattleInTheRain In the rain.]]

* Played for laughs in an episode of ''{{Alf}}''. Lynn notes that an angry visitor has taken off his jacket, apparently in preparation for a fight. Alf quips that someone should stop him before he wipes his shoes.

* In ''TheDarkKnightReturns,'' when Batman faces off against the Mutant Leader for the second time, he removes his cape. This is actually for a practical reason; Batman lured him to a giant knee deep mud pit, where a cape would have simply gotten in the way. It's also to represent the fact that Bruce realized that the only way he could win was if he fought smarter than the Mutant Leader, as opposed to the spectacular failure of brute force from their previous battle.
