* ''WebComic/SchlockMercenary'' has fullerene-cloth powersuits that are literally indistinguishable from normal clothes, and are in fact the Toughs' normal outfits. With these, characters can {{fl|ight}}y, [[NighInvulnerability shrug off artillery fire]], and [[SuperStrength punch through walls]]...although most of the Toughs have "soldier boosts", [[{{Nanomachines nano-tech enhancements]] that push their physical abilities past whats normally possibly for their given species, so some of them [[SuperSoldier can punch through walls anyway]].

** An episode of WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog did, however, give his sneakers some importance. Without them, [[RequiredSecondaryPowers he'd burn his feet running at those speeds]].

* In ''VideoGame/CostumeQuest'', kids transform into whatever their Halloween costume represents, and gain appropriate powers, in order to fight monsters. No explanation whatsoever is given for this, and everyone takes it for granted.

* In ''Literature/VillainsCode'', a number of heroes and villains use PoweredArmor suits. The main character is herself a super, but her primary ManOnFire ability doesn't lend itself to combat very well in this setting. Luckily, she's also a genius and builds herself a suit, using her own ability as a power source.

* In the Franchise/Arrowverse, Ray Palmer builds himself a PoweredArmor suit using dwarf star alloy and starts calling himself "the Atom". The suit can fly, shoot blasters, and change size. In an episode of ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'', he's forced to destroy the Atom suit, when an evil Shogun takes hold of it. He ends up being without a suit for a while, although [[spoiler:Mick gives him Snart's cold gun as a replacement]]. Later on, Ray obtains a supply of dwarf star alloy and rebuilds his suit. Apparently, the suit is so powerful that even a piece of it left behind in the past can result in an army of Atoms taking over the world.

* In ''Literature/SuperPowereds'', Jill is a {{Technopath}}, so her ability doesn't really translate well into combat. Luckily, her twin brother Will is a GadgeteerGenius, so he built her a suit that she can control with her power, which puts her on par with the other students.

** In ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'', Vulture builds himself a flying suit powered by [[ImportedAlienPhlebotinum salvaged Chitauri technology]], left over after ''Film/{{TheAvengers|2012}}''. Peter himself has a suit built by Tony Stark that enhances his abilities. At the end, Stark even offers him a better suit that appears to be a cross between Iron Man and Spider-Man, along with full Avengers membership, but Peter refuses.

At the end, Stark even offers him a better suit that appears to be a cross between Iron Man and Spider-Man, along with full Avengers membership, but Peter refuses. This trope is lampshaded in the movie, when Stark demands the suit back:
---> '''Peter Parker:''' (''pleading'') I'm nothing without this suit.
---> '''Tony Stark:''' If you're nothing without this suit, then you shouldn't have it.
