* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'': The three pilots wear skintight plugsuits. In a scene, Shinji comments that they keep his body perfectly dry, but he always gets his face and hair filthy since his plugsuit lacks a helmet.
-->At last able to get up and out as the plug split open, Shinji gratefully accepted a thick towel from an orange suited technician waiting on the catwalk, vigorously working to clean his hair of the coppery tasting amber fluid. The skin and airtight plug suit kept most of his body perfectly dry while piloting Eva, but he always had to work to get the last little trace of the LCL out of his face and hair every time he left the unit, accepting it but not liking the necessity of ‘breathing’ it in.

* [[ParentService Misha/Mika]] and [[TheScrappy Kicker]] both wear these in ''[[TransformersArmada Transformers: Energon]]''. Misha's helmet even has a massive gap in the back to let her hair fall through.

** ''Anime/MazingerZ'': Unsurprisingly, one of the earliest examples (but not the first one, for once). Kouji began to wear a LatexSpaceSuit in the third episode, and Sayaka always wore one while piloting [[FemBot Aphrodite A]]. Sayaka's was one-piece and tighter than Kouji's though.

* ''Anime/KotetsuJeeg'': Miwa always wore a tight LatexSpaceSuit when she piloted her support unit. However Hiroshi never wore a suit, since he transformed into the HumongousMecha.

** The various combat suits in ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', also known as hardsuits, are relatively form-fitting but can function in a vacuum. That being said, they do not provide significant protection against extreme temperatures, extreme pressure, or highly corrosive environments, unless you use models specifically designed for that purpose. Otherwise, the suits actually do look functional and realistic, being covered in plates of ceramic armor, compared with other examples of {{Latex Space Suit}}s.

** An actual spacesuit is used in the Mothership Zeta add-on as a plot-critical item. It's not quite a LatexSpaceSuit, but it's less clunky than modern suits and can be worn in combat without penalty.

* ''Fanfic/LastChildOfKrypton'': The pilots wear skintight piloting suits. There’s an especial partial model, prepared for when a pilot has a member bandaged or in a cast. It has to be cinched into place manually. Rei wears it in the first chapter.
** After [[spoiler:finding out she was an Amazon]] Asuka modifies her plug-suit so that it resembles [[spoiler:Franchise/WonderWoman's]] outfit.

* In ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'', the Evangelion pilots wear skintight pilot suits. Asuka once considered her suit a symbol of her special status, but now she regards it as a bitter reminder of her failure.
-->Asuka, clad in her form-fitting plugsuit, sighed heavily and stepped onto the deck.\\
The garment had once been as much a symbol of her status as the neural connectors in her hair, and she had loved the way the flimsy red material wrapped tightly around her slim body and enhanced her young, supple curves—she had once even gone as far as padding the hard cups over her modest breasts to make herself appear more voluptuous.\\
It was like wearing a second skin, and for some reason it always felt warm and smelled like the inside of her Eva, and when she wore it there was no ignoring her presence.\\
But now, as she walked towards the slick, armored shape of Unit-02, she felt naked. She stood out as the girl who failed miserably, and she had never felt such disgust at being the center of attention.

Added DiffLines:

* In the exploitation film ''Nude on the Moon'' (1961) the spacesuits of the Moon women are made of a skintight fabric that's so thin you'd swear they don't exist. Not that the astronauts are any better, with noticeable gaps around their gloves and space helmets that should cause instant ExplosiveDecompression.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/DestinationMoon''. The 'Michelin Man' look is a [[TechnologyMarchesOn carry-over from the long obsolete 1943 Goodrich pressure suit]]. The producers wanted to have a pneumatic suit that would both look realistic and cool the actors, but the wire work needed for the low gravity scenes made that impossible. To HandWave the issue in scenes where the actors change into the suits, this was justified by making it a two-piece version like a car tire -- the outside padding takes the wear and tear, while the pressure suit is inside.

* In the chapter "Repeat" of ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'', Shinji and Asuka wear their plugsuits for first time in years. Asuka noted that she used to wear her skintight pilot suit with pride, but it feels like a prison, now.
-->It was even worse than when she had first put her old school uniform on again. This pressurized red outfit that tightly encased her skin; she used to wear it proudly as a symbol of her rank and status as pilot, but now it just reminded her of a life she had been glad to have left behind when she had finally been able to. When she had pushed the button that caused the suit to contract around her until there was no interfering air between her body and the conductive material, she had almost felt imprisoned by it.

* ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'':
** The SMS pilots wear form-fitting suits that are little more than longjohns with bulky shoulderpads, and a helmet. Although these are designed to interface with the exoskeleton control units in the cockpit,[[note]]The ejection seat & controls turn into a PoweredArmor exoskeleton when the pilot ejects, though the ''passenger'' doesn't get this.[[/note]] it's extremely jarring when they're forced to eject and float around in space during a nuclear exchange.
** It shows an evolution of spacesuits seen in previous installments. Zero (2007) -- normal modern piloting g-suits. SDF (2009) -- not exactly bulky, but still somewhat baggy suits. Plus (2040) -- leaner and slimmer version of the previous version. 7 (2045) -- essentially, the same as in Plus. Frontier (2059) -- glorified bodygloves. They are quite consistent there.

* The [[VideoGame/KerbalSpaceProgram Kerbals]] have these in ''FanWorks/TheNextFrontier'', complete with skintight hoods that can be pulled up in less than ten seconds. They're normally worn as duty uniforms, similar to[[note]]and [[WordOfGod directly inspired by]][[/note]] skinsuits from the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' series, and like that series they're designed as emergency protective gear in the event of pressure loss. Planned EVAs are normally carried out with bulkier suits with a greater internal air supply and proper radiation shielding.

* In ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'', the HumongousMecha pilots wear skintight pilot suits called plug suits. According Shinji, they look nice and are actually comfortable.
-->The plugsuit wasn't bad. It looked fairly snazzy and it was remarkably comfortable for something so form-fitting.
