* ''Literature/SkulduggeryPleasant'' featured the armour of Lord Vile. Made worse by the fact that after the heroes face him, it is revealed that he isn't in there, but has become part of the suitformed from part of the former wearers' personality which has stayed in the suit. The former wearer is [[spoiler:Skulduggery himself]].

*** Nael van Darnus, BigBad of ''Final Fantasy XIV'' 1.0, deserves special mention because her armor managed to conceal her sex, until it was later revealed in the T10 Binding Coil of Bahamut raid of ''A Realm Reborn''. [[note]]It was at first thought that she was ''originally'' male and Bahamut's unusual resurrection magic caused her to [[CameBackWrong come back wrong]], but WordOfGod later clarified that she was not the true Nael - she disguised herself as her late brother and replaced him in order to exact revenge on the incompetent Garlean officers that were responsible for getting him killed.[[/note]]

Chaos Lords and Sorcerers from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' wear PoweredArmor (or even heavier Terminator armour) decorated with loads of spikes and symbols of Chaos, as well as... er... [[{{Squick}} trophies]].

* ''{{Exalted}}'' gives us the First and Forsaken Lion, an ancient, tyrannical ghost empowered by [[TabletopGame/EldritchAbomination the dead makers of Creation]] to go out and kill everything. He's a master warlord and strategist in a gigantic suit of armor. Not that he has much choice, as he was welded into it as punishment for his first major screw up.

In fantasy settings, this is the standard look for the BlackKnight. However, that doesn't always mean that an overlord of this type is solely a physical fighter. He might also be an EvilSorcerer that made the [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy wise]] choice of donning armor to offset his [[SquishyWizard main weakness]]. Besides, they are almost always LargeAndInCharge so it's normal to see them as evil {{Magic Knight}}s. And sometimes, the wearer might be [[SamusIsAGirl secretly a girl]].

* At the climax of Disney's ''Film/{{Maleficent}}'', King Stefan battles Maleficent in a suit of armor that invokes this trope. Being DangerouslyGenreSavvy, said armor is made of ''[[ColdIron iron]]'', which burns fairies that come into contact with it.

* Xemnas from ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' gets this form during the first and third stages of the final battle with him. He spends both fights [[SlouchOfVillainy slouching]] in the control chair of a spaceship, using his powers to fight. It turns out to be the Keyblade Armour of Master Xehanort, his ''original'' original incarnation.
** The [[AnimatedArmor armor itself]] becomes a [[ThatOneBoss merciless]] BonusBoss in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep [[UpdatedRerelease Final Mix]]''.

* The [[BigBad Big Bad]] in [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=1453 Machine Hayabusa]] spends most of the 21 episodes entirely clad in a full set of medieval-esque armour, mostly busy [[OrcusOnHisThrone sitting on his throne]] inside his lair. He only removes it, thus [[IdentityConcealmentDisposal revealing his true identity]], in the last episode. Particularly conspicuous, considering that the anime has a modern setting and focuses on [[CoolCar car]] [[WeaponizedCar racing]].
