* [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Holy Champions]] in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' can transform into solid steel, granting them SuperStrength and NighInvulnerability. In one version of the game they were so strong that they could wield telephone poles and throw cars, though their powers have been channeled into GoodOldFisticuffs more recently.

* The [[https://morethanadodo.com/2015/04/28/the-iron-snail/ Scaly-foot snail]] is a snail that lives in deep-sea geothermal vents. What makes this snail so special is that it has scales on its foot that are made of iron sulfide. It is the only known animal that uses actual iron as armor.

* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' features at least two: Weld, a boy literally made of metal, and Scion, who appears golden, but is [[NighInvulnerability sufficiently durable]] that his exact composition is unknown. [[spoiler: Scion is actually composed of a close approximation of human flesh, and his durability is the result of him replacing damaged tissue with undamaged tissue he gets from a landmass-sized reservoir. He just makes himself ''look'' golden because [[GoldAndWhiteAreDivine it looks godly]].]]

* Creator/{{DC}}'s ''ComicBook/MetalMen'' are, well, ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin - humanoid robots each made of a specific metal and properties to match: Lead is slow, tough and blocks radiation, Mercury can flow through cracks, etc. Most of them aren't actually ''shiny'', though... Tina/Platinum, and Copper in the newer versions, are usually drawn to appear so, but the others, even Gold, generally aren't (and Mercury is ''red'', probably for the same reasons the Marvel character of the same name has red hair). Lead is a dull grey, Tin (and Nameless, who's also made of tin) is a dull white, and Iron is a kind of blue (presumably he's supposed to be the color of a rifle barrel).

** Averted by Power Rangers' first [[Series/PowerRangersZeo Gold Ranger]]. Despite his name, he is primarily clad in a black suit and his source counterpart, [[Series/ChourikiSentaiOhranger King Ranger]], is designated as a Black Ranger. However, because of the fact that unlike most Black Rangers, whose energies were usually shown as [[PurpleIsTheNewBlack purple]], [[BlingBlingBang his energies were gold in color, not to mention his Zord hardly being black in color at all, as well as his Sentai-exclusive morpher being primarily gold]]. [[Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger A later Black Ranger]] who just had as much gold on him and his gear remained a Black Ranger [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder when adapted]], however

* ''ComicBook/{{Wildstorm}}'': Void and [[ComicBook/TheAuthority The Engineer]]. Void is a mysterious alien entity that bonded with a human woman, granting her teleportation and strange intuition. The Engineer is much like ComicBook/IronMan, but has replaced her blood with {{Nanomachines}} which act as a GreenLanternRing - and [[InstantArmor extrudes some of it through the pores of her skin]] as [[LatexSpaceSuit skin-tight armor]]. Yes, she is essentially running around naked. She's [[FetishFuelStationAttendant an exhibitionist]].

* Mirror of the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'', who has a PK skintight field about his body so he's super-strong. But it reflects all light, so he looks like he's a T-1000.



* In the WhateleyUniverse, Mirror is a telekinetic brick, but his skintight energy field reflects light, giving him a chromed appearance. Pearlescent is similar, but she can turn her field on or off.

Pearlescent is also similar, but her PK field appears nacreous (like a pearl), hence her code name. Like Silver Ghost, she can turn her field on or off.control it.
