* 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]].

** Asajj Ventress in ''StarWarsTheCloneWars'', who is always shown wearing a long skirt when not fighting. Because the animators found it too difficult to animate her skirt during fight scenes, Ventress always removes her skirt before engaging in a lightsaber duel with the heroes (in fact, when she escapes after losing she will always leave her skirt behind). She stops doing this altogether from Season 3 onwards, however, as by then Ventress actually stopped wearing a skirt permanently.

* In ''[[TheTransporter Transporter 2]]'', Frank carefully takes off his jacket, folds it and puts it on the hood of his car (declaring that he'd just had it dry-cleaned), before proceeding to wipe the floor with the teenagers that [[MuggingTheMonster tried to steal his car]].

* In WebVideo/VideoGameChampionshipWrestling, [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Kanji Tatsumi]] wears his school uniform jacket for his entrance but removes it for his matches. This is probably to avoid drawing attention to the game's character creator making it impossible to replicate Kanji's famous CoatCape.

* 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.
