* In the Literature/WhateleyUniverse, Loophole is stronger than average, but she is far more powerful when she wears her power armor. Jericho has a power armor suit too, but he's designing it for medics and rescue workers. Phase has a superhero costume that provides protection against bullets, knife attacks, acid, and several other kinds of assaults, but she paid a huge amount for it.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan,'' three {{Supervillain}}s derive powers from their costumes. The Vulture has {{flight}}-capable PoweredArmor, Shocker has a vibrating suit with gauntlets that shoot concussive blasts and [[BarrierWarrior generate]] [[DeflectorShields a protective shield]] and the Rhino has [[NighInvulnerability titanium-resin]] armor that's [[ClingyCostume permanently fused to his skin]]. Then of course there's Spider-Man's [[NotOfThisEarth unearthly]] [[MySuitIsAlsoSuper black costume]], that increases his strength, jumping distance, balance and webbing integrity. [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong Gee, it's almost too good to be true]]! And later, Shocker's teammates Fancy Dan and Ox get their own powered suits, with Ox's simply making him even stronger and Fancy Dan's allowing him to bounce off walls [[SuperSpeed lightning fast]] like a killer bouncy ball.

** One of the spinoffs for ''ComicBook/SecretWars2015'', ''ComicBook/{{Deadpool}}'s Secret ComicBook/SecretWars'' ultimately revealed why the symbiote went nuts: [[spoiler:Deadpool was the first one it latched on to, but he quickly tossed it off, not realizing it went nuts after it read its mind]].

** In ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'', [[spoiler:TheRival Jetstream Sam is revealed to not be a cyborg (except for one cybernetic arm). Instead, he wore a nanomachine-enhanced suit that increased his already BadassNormal physical abilities to be on par with that of cyborgs.]]

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series, there's the various models of PoweredArmor, from the early T-45 armor to the Enclave X-01 power armor, all of which provide a boost to Strength.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', the completion of certain side quests for the Railroad will unlock Ballistic Weave, a modification for regular clothing items (which are wearable under armor) that can boost their damage resistances to beyond what even fully upgraded Combat Armor can provide.

* ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' has hints of this: The characters' Barrier Jackets, Knight Armors, Knight Clothings and etc. can take surprising amounts of damage before breaking. Not to mention their weapons usually take the form of anything from gloves to necklaces to shoes when not in use.
* The armors worn by various people who are chosen to become a Anime/{{Karas}}...gives you all the basic benefits; strength, speed, endurance, etc. However, it also gives some nice special benefits namely, car/tank mode and jet fighter mode. Mind you, the dead/comatose bodies of the chosen ones, are still ''very'' human and ''very'' open to attack....as Otoha finds out.

* Unusual for an RPG, in [[Franchise/{{.hack}} .Hack Sign]], characters do not learn new powers as they gain levels. Instead, their powers are granted by whatever armor and weapon they have equipped.

* ''ComicBook/MortadeloYFilemon'': Some of Mortadelo's disguises grant him abilities he doesn't have undisguised. For example, his ghost disguise allows him to phase through walls, he can [[WallCrawling climb buildings]] while disguised as a lizard, breathe underwater with a fish disguise or fly disguised as a bird. Also, his iceberg disguise allowed him to cheat a thermal detector.

* ''ComicBook/{{Superlopez}}'': in ''Los Alienígenas'', Superlópez is powerless without his supersuit.

* This is the whole premise of ''Anime/KillLaKill:'' in this setting, clothes made with [[AppliedPhlebotinum Life Fibers]] make people stronger, and, in greater concentrations, give them superpowers. At the beginning of the series, the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Elite Four]] have the strongest outfits with 30% Life Fibers, while a 50% outfit drives someone into TheBerserker. The protagonist, [[TheHero Ryuko]], finds an [[AnimateInanimateObject animate]] outfit named [[EmbarrassingButEmpoweringOutfit Senketsu]] who's 100% Life Fibers, which she can wear because, unknown to her, [[spoiler:she [[HalfHumanHybrid has Life Fibers fused with her body]], meaning that she [[EmpoweredBadassNormal has superpowers even without it]]]]. The initial antagonist, [[TheRival Satsuki]], has a similar uniform, which she can survive through [[BadassNormal sheer force of will]].



* ''Anime/KillLaKill'' is ''Clothes Make The Superman: The Anime''. In the series, there are articles of clothing containing "Life Fibers" that empower the wearer. The protagonist and her rival both have special outfits made entirely out of Life Fibers.
** [[spoiler:Unusually, it turns out that the main character is [[EmpoweredBadassNormal already superpowerful]] even without her outfit. Although the reason for that is that she is [[HalfHumanHybrid partially made of clothing]] in the first place!]]
