** The current take on the tank destroyer is an armored car with light armor (rated against small arms only) and a tank gun, similar to ([[FollowTheLeader and often inspired by]]) the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B1_Centauro B1 Centauro]].


* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'': Most of the vehicles and mecha of the setting have armor coated with "Nanolaminate armor". And then there's the Dáinsleif railgun, which tosses a harpoon-like metal rod so hard that it can punch through the armor, most mecha that gets in the way are instantly torn to shreds and heavier vehicles only last a little bit longer, and [[KillSat the result of shooting it from orbit is quite a sight]]. It's a weapon so brutal that the universe's FictionalGenevaConventions outlaw its use, which of course shows [[{{Hipocrite}} how little Gjallarhorn]] [[ObligatoryWarCrimeScene cares about following them]], in the final arc of the anime.

* ''VideoGame/CompanyOfHeroes'': There are a few infantry units which by unit-type are much tougher than other infantry units. Universally, the way to get through that are tank rounds or [[KillItWithFire flamethrowers]].

* ''VideoGame/CompanyOfHeroes'': There are a few infantry units which by unit-type are much tougher than other infantry units. Universally, the way to get through that are tank rounds or [[KillItWithFire flamethrowers]]. Additionally, many anti-tank specialized units are close to useless against infantrymen as their weapons tend to have a very small area of effect that will almost certainly miss infantry just about every time (though rare lucky hits can happen) while still liable to strike a vehicle's much larger hitbox, though plenty of the more well-rounded vehicles have guns firing rounds that are useful against both.


* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** Sanji is typically a ExtremityExtremist and being the TeamChef makes him firmly believe that kitchen knives should not be bloodied in battle, as they are sacred instruments meant solely for the preparation of food. In one fight, he battles an enemy who uses [[ImprovisedArmor food as armor]] [[EdibleBludgeon and weapons]], so he decides to use [[KnifeNut knives]] in this case to remove said armor since it would be no different from using knives to prepare a meal.

* ''VideoGame/MegamanX'': Both Armored Armadillo (''X1'') and Earthrock Trilobyte (''X8'') are built with strong, defensive armor, but using their respective weaknesses against them ([[ShockAndAwe Electric Spark]] and [[GravityMaster Squeeze Bomb]]) will destroy said armor, turning the battle easier. In Trilobyte's case, you can also remove his armor with a fully-charged buster shot (or a strong enough slash/bullet combo in Zero/Axl's case), but doing so will leave the armor intact, allowing Trilobyte the chance to retrieve it later in battle.

* '''Armor Cracker:''' This weapon/attack reduces the defense of the target. It may work by removing the armor off the Mook, removing the shield off a ShieldBearingMook, ClothingDamage, using TheNudifier, or disabling the DeflectorShields (usually by {{EMP}}). In games with a dedicated "ArmorMeterPoints", this weapon/attack may do significant damage to that meter rather than the HP meter; if they have RegeneratingShieldStaticHealth, it may either slow, or [[AntiRegeneration stop the shield from the regenerating]].
