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 [[PermanentlyMissableContent expense of that item]].

* In ''Anime/AICOIncarnation'', Divers wear artificial organism suits to protect themselves from the Matter. Since Aiko's body is made almost entirely of artificial organisms, the suit clings to her when she puts it on.



* 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.

* The Creator/ChuckJones ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' cartoon "The Brothers Carry-Mouse-Off" combines this with GoneHorriblyRight, in which Tom [[FullBodyDisguise disguises himself full-body]] as a [[AttractiveBentGender white female mouse]] to try and attract Jerry to his doom, but ends up attracting the unwanted attention of many other male mice. Then Tom tries to get out of the female mouse suit, only to find the zipper is stuck, and then [[FromBadToWorse a bunch of other hungry cats show up]], thinking Tom really is a mouse...

** 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]] (and the fact that loyalist dreadnoughts are usually kept in hibernation between battles, so they don't experience the everyday problems of having weapons for arms).

Is it any wonder they have a special rule that makes them fire on their own side sometimes?

A costumed character cannot remove their costume, or an ordinary character cannot remove their clothes. Maybe a FreakLabAccident has fused it to his body, maybe it's [[LivingOnBorrowedTime the only thing keeping her alive]], or the only thing [[PowerLimiter keeping those]] [[ContainmentCostume around her alive]], or maybe it's a cursed ArtifactOfDoom. Whatever the reason, they ''have'' to wear it (or a substantial part of it) all the time; removing it is either very debilitating, very dangerous, or simply impossible.
