** ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' adds the [[http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Hazmat_suit Hazmat suit]], unfortunately the suit combined with a certain [[http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/The_Cloud chemical cloud]] lead to some [[http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Ghost_people rather unfortunate results]]

* Playmobil, creators of small figures in roles varying from SWAT cop to a fairy and unicorn, once released a [[http://www.collectobil.com/catalogue/items/3180.htm HAZMAT Crew playset]]. You don't get this kind of grim realism from {{Lego}}.

** We see these in use in "Utopia", where the rising Stet Radiation present under the rocket ends up liquefying the poor sod wearing one. This prevents the rocket lifting off and sending someone else in there would be a death sentence. Luckily, the Doctor has ''[[ResurrectiveImmortality Jack]]'' at hand, who doesn't even ''need'' a suit.

** [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries The Original Series]] featured different types of protective suits in the early episodes "The Man Trap" and "The Naked Time". In the latter episode, the protective value was negated when Lt. Tormolen took a glove off to scratch his nose, exposing himself (and, subsequently, the crew of the ''Enterprise'') to the virus that was responsible for the deaths of the crew of the Psi 2000 outpost.
*** "The Tholian Web" introduced a fully-sealed environmental suit, worn by the landing party aboard the ''Defiant''.

** Homer also wore one in "Milhouse of Sand and Fog" when wheeling in Maggie during her "pox party" because he never had chicken pox.

* Due to the extreme {{Metaphorgotten}} of ''Literature/HelpMyStoryHasTheMarySueDisease'' readers are repeatedly advised to wear hazmat suits because of the rotten eggs that have grown tentacles. [[ItMakesSenseInContext The book is actually writing advice]].

* Terminator Armors from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', the most powerful and durable suits of [[PoweredArmor Power Armor]] ever developed by the Imperium of Man, were originally a hazmat suit. For maintenance work inside plasma reactors, while the reactor's running at full capacity.

Then there's the thing to the right, which is a heat resistant suit worn when working around things that are excessively hot, such as oil rig fires, iron smelters, active volcanoes, [[AndZoidberg and]] [[Series/MythBusters replicas of]] [[AncientGreece invading]] [[AncientRome tri]][[UsefulNotes/RomanEmpire remes]]. You're wearing it because otherwise you'd be turned into a crispy critter in minutes. Even with it, though, you feel like you're in a sauna while wrapped in an unusually stiff duvet, oven mitts, and a hockey helmet.[[note]]Except when it is equipped with a cooling system, in which case you fell like you're wrapped in a ''cold'' stiff duvet, oven mitts and a hockey helmet. And have to lug a thick hose/cable or a heavy backpack around.[[/note]]
