* L. Ron Hubbard managed to take this to levels reached in few fictional examples: While living as a self-styled Commodore on the "Royal Scotsman", the flag ship of his [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_Org fleet]], he had a Commodore's Messenger Organization (or: the Commodore's errant runners) tasked with duties like lighting his cigarettes, [[Squick dressing him]] and repeating his orders to members of the crew. They were mostly young girls dressed in hot pants and halter tops.

* ''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.

She is mainly there to function as NewMeat, as she reacts with panic and/or horror to situations surrendering Evangelion and Angel combat that she never got to know any of them.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has Maya Ibuki, Makoto Hyuga, and Shigeru Aoba. There are a bunch of others as well, but none are given names, distinctive character designs, or personalities.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has Maya Ibuki, Makoto Hyuga, and Shigeru Aoba. There are a bunch of others as well, but none are given names, distinctive character designs, or personalities. Technically a subversion--Maya is the lone female bridge bunny of note, and the remainder are evenly distributed between the sexes.

* ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' surprisingly had this in TheMovie, with Peorth having three subordinates in overseeing the Yggdrasil system: Ere, Ex, and Chrono.

* ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' surprisingly had this in TheMovie, with Peorth having three subordinates in overseeing the Yggdrasil system: Ere, Ex, and Chrono. It's worth noting that, excluding their unseen boss, ''all'' professional employees of Heaven's Headquarters [[ImprobablyFemaleCast are women]], excluding ceremonial (and menial) guards who're posted outdoors.



** There is a line of mass-produced female Bridge Bunny androids. Different organisations use different models, but every bunny-bot in the organisation is identical - Section 9 have brunette androids in pink blazers, and the army seem to use models with short black hair and glasses. Not only can they man the control centre, they also come in handy when in one episode, two are used as [[DistractedByTheSexy sexy twins to distract the guards]].

* The PastDoctorAdventures novel ''The Indestructible Man'' by Simon Messingham is a deconstruction of Gerry Anderson's work, including ''Series/{{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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' has the Teiwaz group being an ''entire'' legion of these led by the only male leader Naze...[[ReallyGetsAround and they're all]] ''[[BalancedHarem his wives]]''. Note that they all wear visible bras under their otherwise normal uniforms and they like to put on makeup or fix their nails while on-duty.

* Belvedere Coco, Celtic Midori, and Amarone Slantheav from ''{{Vandread}}''. Subverted to a certain extent, because the only male on the bridge is the ship's navigator. In a further subversion, most of the female bridge crew are wearing relatively conservative outfits (one is pregnant, one dresses in a full-body bear outfit, and the captain is an old woman), whilst the ''guy'' is obliged to be naked in quite a number of scenes. Finally, [[spoiler:the most scantily-clad woman on the bridge is later revealed to be a man in drag.]]

* Most of Kaiba's monitoring staff during the Battle City tournament and Kaiba Corp Grand Prix arcs (and they All. Looked. The. Same. Except for their HairColors). Hilariously lampshaded in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'':
