* There is an entire category of dress that serves this purpose known as "entrance attire". It has its roots in warmup gear. Before competition, athletes would be expected to perform cardio drills and stretches to "limber up" and then wear fairly heavy clothing to keep their muscles from "cooling down" while they rested. This was to reduce the risk of injury, but over time warmups gear became increasingly thematic as wrestlers sought to look distinct among their peers and increase their marketability, to the point of robes that cannot even be manually removed in a timely manner(Dalton Castle), headgear that couldn't possibly serve towards staying limber(Wrestling/StanHansen) and potential weaponry that really shouldn't have been allowed at ring side(Wrestling/LegionOfDoom)[[/folder]]

* Used as a form of non-verbal DuckSeasonRabbitSeason in the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short "Big House Bunny": Bugs Bunny finds himself in prison locking horns with guard Yosemite Sam (here called [[MeaningfulName Sam Schultz]]). Bugs bets that Sam wouldn't be so tough without his uniform and dares him to take it off and fight. Sam takes off his guard uniform while Bugs takes off his prisoner garb. Bugs then "decides" that Sam is tough enough and puts on ''Sam's'' uniform, while Sam puts on Bugs' uniform. Bugs then blows the whistle and the other guards beat up Sam and take him to a cell.

* Similar to ([[OlderThanTheyThink and perhaps the inspiration for]]) the ''GurrenLagann'' example below is one from ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam''. [[spoiler: After Domon tells her that he loves her, Rain breaks free from the Devil Gundam. As she's naked, Domon swiftly covers her with his cloak. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome They then destroy the Devil Gundam once and for all in a Crazy Awesome manner.]]]]

* WonderWoman wore an black leather jacket during the J. Michael Straczynski run, which she takes off in one issue before she goes to battle, before she gets rid of it for good in later issues after it receives ClothingDamage, [[SleevesAreForWimps Bonus points for always going with her shoulders bare.]]

** Obi-Wan and Vader also do this right before their duel in ''Episode III''. Probably the main reason this doesn't happen in ''Attack of the Clones'' is the fact that both Obi-Wan and Anakin already lost their outer robes before their fight with Dooku (and Dooku didn't take off his cape because it protects him with its magic).

* In ''AlphaProtocol'', just before the battle with Omen Deng, he dramatically sheds his BadassCape.
* In Squaresoft's ''TheBouncer'', the BigBad, Dauragon C. Mikado, wears a Badass Longcoat for most of the game, including when you first get to fight him. In the Final BossFight, he starts out wearing it, too, but after you knock enough health off of him, he tosses the coat and [[UpToEleven becomes a]] ''[[UpToEleven LOT]]'' [[UpToEleven stronger]]. In the True Final Boss Fight, he removes the suspenders, too, and fights you [[ShirtlessScene full-on shirtless]].
