*** The game also justifies Samantha's presence by the fact that she's not actually part of the ship's official duty register, rather being a retrofit technician who got stuck on board during the evacuation of earth. Her role also intersects with EDI's quite heavily, but EDI successfully argues that a specialist on board would increase your effectiveness (and she's right).

* ''Film/GalaxyQuest'' plays this trope snarkily straight. Gwen [=DeMarco=]'s official capacity is inherited from her character in the ShowWithinAShow, Tawny Madison. Her job is to repeat everything the computer says, word-for-word and order it to do everything they need it to do as computer only obeys her. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d into a pile of smoking ash about three-quarters of the way through the movie: "Listen - I have ''one'' job to do on this ship, and it's stupid, but I'm gonna do it!"

* In ''SakuraWars'' each of the three theatre/combat troupes has a set of Bridge bunnies. The original Tokyo Team has the Kaze-gumi, who coridnate the attacks from headquarters with the male general and female major, run the train, airship, and of course serve as bridge crew for the larger airship the Mikasa. The girls also work as [[OfficeLady office ladies]] in the theatre, two of them doing paper work the third working the gift shop. The Paris team has Mel and Ci (a pun on the French word Merci), who dress in maid uniforms have the same theatre duties as their paris counterparts and similar battlefield duties. The New York Team, has the Rainbow Division, who again serve the same roles.

* The PastDoctorAdventures novel ''The Indestructible Man'' by Simon Messingham is a deconstruction of Gerry Anderson's work, including ''{{UFO}}''. The bridge bunnies of SILHOET (an expy of SHADO) are the daughters of the rich and powerful -- women who'd normally be models, actresses or trophy wives, but as much of Earth is a dystopia, SILHOET gives them a secure position in an influential organisation to curry favour with their parents.

* ''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...)

* On ''{{Simoun}}'', the ''Arcus Prima'' had them, but the ''Messis'' didn't. Of course, given the ''Simoun'' universe, it's possible that some or all of the Bridge Bunnies could have been young men who hadn't lost their female secondary sex characteristics yet.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/LegacyOfTheVoid'', where the Spear of Adun's bridge is crewed by (male) Protoss zealots. They actually serve a purpose: when [[spoiler:the leader of the Tal'darim]] warps aboard, they immediately ignite blades and engage him. [[TheWorfEffect It doesn't help, of course,]] but it's the thought that counts.

* ''GoDannar'' had a couple, who apparently got promoted to [[spoiler: mecha pilots]] by the end of the series.

* ''Anime/AgentAika'' has a spaceship filled with (almost) nothing but women in striperific clothes. They also all have the personality of a piece of toast, though they are obviously very capable in fighting and flying a gigantic spaceship.
