* ''Comicbook/{{Spawn}}'' eventually discovered that he didn't use magic to turn his elaborate cape and chains into weapons and other tools, but the suit did so of its own will, because it was a demon that had been bonded to him as part of the process of making him into a Hellspawn. And it was ''very'' clingy indeed, complete with Spawn having to physically rip the semi-liquid and fighting to stay attached suit off. The suit taunted him when he finally came back that it knew he would, calling their "relationship" deeper than any human idea of love.

* ''Comicbook/{{Spawn}}'' Emp from Empowered has an inversion of this. It does cat much like a second skin. She even has to shave her pubic region or she gets what's often refered to as steel wool. However, the costume tears really easily. The more insecure the more easily it tears. Given her powers come from how intact the costume is shes made more insecure the weaker she gets leading to her being practuccally naked quite often.

*** For Space Marines being encased within a Dreadnought, and to be able to continue to battlefield service, is considered the highest honor for one who is otherwise permanently incapacitated by injury. For [[EvilCounterpart Chaos Space Marines]], qualifications for being ensconced within a Dreadnought are similar, but it's seen as being a punishment for failure and personal defeat. They are forced to keep on living and fighting, though they can't [[AlwaysChaoticEvil enjoy the pleasure of battle and slaughter personally]] and have to do it through [[SenseLossSadness a numbed sensory apparatus]] from having to experience battle secondhand through the Dreadnought's sensors. This difference of perception very much comes from the two factions' [[SoldierVsWarrior different mindsets]].

*** If you immediately asked how they go to the bathroom, the suit canonically includes "recyclers", which can recycle body waste into a nutrient rich form that is fed back into them intravenously or as an edible, bland paste. Yes, their armour turns their [[IAteWhat poop into food.]] Also many Chaos Marines are also directly empowered by the Gods of the Warp. It wouldn't be unheard of for [[WarGod Khorne]] to empower a particularly dedicated murderous psychopath to feed off death, or to drink blood through their mouth grill instead of eating food.

This trope is found in many traditional [[RolePlayingGame RPGs]] in the form of "cursed" equipment and weapons. Typically these items will be noticeably more powerful than equivalent gear found at that point in the game, but will almost always come at the price of having a really nasty side-effect(such as being randomly stunned or damaging yourself while fighting). Trying to unequip the item under normal circumstances WILL invoke this trope, greeting you with an ominous message about you being unable to remove it. Legitimately removing [[ClingyCostume clingy costumes]] would usually require a special spell, item, or a paid service from an [=NPC=] to do so - sometimes at the [[LostForever expense of that item]].

* In ''Film/OneCrazySunner'', this happens to Bobcat when he gets stuck in a full rubber Godzilla suit. Then HilarityEnsues when he ends up wrecking a model condominium setup as if it were the real Godzilla wrecking Tokyo, in his rampage to get out of the costume.
