For long-running series, finding a way to remove the costume may constitute a StoryArc, and actually doing so can provide an excuse to update a character's appearance. For some characters, this is a convenient source of {{Angst}}. Some works may address problems with (or make jokes about) [[BottomlessBladder waste]] [[NobodyPoops disposal]] or other [[NoPeriodsPeriod biological]] [[CantHaveSexEver needs]]. This is also FetishFuel for some people, especially those with a [[CantHaveSexEver forced chastity fetish]].

* In ''StarWarsLegacy'', Darth Krayt's armor was, in fact, Yuuzhan Vong symbiotes that could not be removed from his body. And they constantly threatened to take over his body. Hey, are Clingy Costumes a Sith fashion?

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 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]].

* One of the older comics variants is Vance Astro of the ''Comicbook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' (an alternate future self of Marvel Boy or whatever he's calling himself this week). As an astronaut in an experimental sublight journey to Alpha Centauri, he was put inside a copper-lined uniform for the loooooong journey. If it is ever pierced in any way, he will suddenly age a thousand years.

* Franchise/TheDCU villain [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Mr. Freeze]] depends on his cryogenic suit to stay alive, due to a chemical accident that permanently lowered his body temperature. It isn't that he can't take the suit off. He is occasionally seen in a robe or less in well refrigerated places.

** ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'': The animatronic suits are full of sharp metal so if you were to get in one, voluntarily or not, you would be crushed and mutilated before you could escape.

* Emp from ''Comicbook/Empowered'' has an inversion of this. It does fit much like a second skin. She even has to shave her pubic region or she gets what's often referred 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 practically naked quite often.

* [[Comicbook/SpiderMan Spider-Man]] has a number of villains with this trope, such as the Rhino, the Scorpion, Dr. Octopus (only when it came to his mechanical arms), Comicbook/{{Venom}}, Carnage, and the Molten Man.
