* In Sven Hassel's World War II fiction, the lads are often sent on suicide missions or are otherwise caught behind Russian lines and need to get home. This invariably ends up in escapades in Soviet kit they do not know how to use and have to figure out on the spot.

* Some time between ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' and ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', [[TheHero Commander Shepard]] surrenders themself to the Systems Alliance and turns over the ''[[CoolStarship Normandy SR2]]'', which had been placed under their command while they [[EnemyMine were working with Cerberus]]. By the time the third game begins, the ''Normandy'' has nearly completed her refit process to bring her in line with Alliance standards (and to repaint her [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience in Alliance Navy colors]].) A sidequest in ''[=ME3=]'' also results in the capture of a squadron of Cerberus fighters, which are pressed into Alliance service.

* ''VideoGame/TreasurePlanetBattleAtProcyon'' has this as a game mechanic, where successfully [[{{Boarding Party}} boarding]] an enemy ship will transfer the target ship to your fleet. If enemy ships are captured in the campaign, they will stay in the players fleet for the remainder of the campaign, [[{{Final Death}} unless they are sunk]].

This trope is ubiquitous in works of naval fiction that are set in the age of WoodenShipsAndIronMen. This is because sailors were awarded prize money for capturing enemy ships. Captured enemy ships would often be incorporated into the captor's own navy (often under their original names, as it was considered bad luck to change the name. HMS ''Guerriere'' is a good example). See TheOtherWiki [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prize_money for more information]]. Because SpaceIsAnOcean, science fiction works will sometimes use the same concept with spaceships.
