* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': NERV has several bridge technicians. In episode 2, Asuka reflects that she never got to know any of them.
-->There were several technicians working on bulky machines on the catwalk in front of her, doing what she didn't care to know. She had never bothered acknowledging them and other than the so-called Bridge Bunnies she couldn't address any of them by name if she wanted to.

Off duty, they're frequently romantically [[PairTheSpares paired with minor characters]], or can be the GirlOfTheWeek. They're invariably female, although a token male junior bridge officer may be sufficiently intimidated by them to serve as [[PluckyComicRelief Comic Relief]]. Token males in this position will also likely be [[HoYay swinging their bat the other way]], unless someone else on the crew fills that role.

* ''Film/SpaceMutiny'' had Bridge Bunnies who were downright ''Playboy Bunnies.'' They were wearing singlets and everything. (Granted, some other bridge staff wore actual uniforms, but still...)

Someone other than TheCaptain needs to actually ''run'' the CoolStarship, which is where the Bridge Bunnies come in. They're a pair (or trio) of young, attractive twentysomething women (see OfficeLady) who practically live on TheBridge, and deal with [[CommunicationsOfficer opening hailing frequencies]], giving orders to the pilots of the HumongousMecha squadrons, reporting that the ReadingsAreOffTheScale, activating the AppliedPhlebotinum, [[Film/GalaxyQuest repeating whatever the computer is saying]], warning of {{Negative Space Wedgie}}s, and the like. A staple of Japanese {{anime}} shows that feature large capital ships.
