* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', the babies dress Chuckie up in his own super hero suit to emulate his favorite hero, Captain Blasto. The towel he wears as a cape is told by Tommy that all heroes wears capes and that that's where their powers come from. When trying to get his globe beach ball back from Angelica, he loses the cape, yet still is able to beat Angelica and get his ball back. They, then, treat it as a MagicFeather and that he doesn't need any more, though while they're not looking, Chuckie picks it back up and puts it back on, stating "You never know..."

* The ''WesternAnimation/MightyMouse'' cartoon "Hero For A Day" had a bumpkin mouse finding out his girlfriend has the hots for Mighty Mouse. He buys a Mighty Mouse costume, thinking he can impress his girl by intimidating some cats. It doesn't work, and after the cats knock him out and are about to pounce on him, the real deal shows up, defeats the cats quite handily and lets the little bumpkin take the credit for it.

* 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.

* Erza Scarlet from ''Manga/FairyTail'' has a variety of armors available in her HyperspaceArsenal, which grant her a wide variety of special abilities. Still, she's pretty ''{{badass}}'' even without the armor.

* ''VideoGame/HalfLife'': Gordon Freeman is pretty {{Badass}} for a [[BadassBookworm theoretical physicist]], but it is his Hazardous [=EnVironment=] (HEV) Suit that enables him to survive multiple gunshot wounds, [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong headcrab infestation attempts]] and other nastiness. Note however that when Gordon teleports to Xen, he encounters plenty of dead scientists wearing the exact same type of suit, so Gordon's feats are not entirely due to the suit.

* Akutagawa Ryuunosuke of ''Manga/BungouStrayDogs'' still has powers without clothes, but they're pretty useless without clothes, seeing as his ability is the manipulation of any clothing he's wearing. He puts it to awesome effect, turning his BadassLongcoat into an ExtremeOmnivore and creating anything from spikes to armor out of it.
