* A bunch of female rangers ([[Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman and at least a few male rangers]]) have worn this in the ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' franchise.

to:

* A bunch For the most part subverted in the ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' franchise. The pattern on the suits of several female rangers Rangers ([[Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman and at least a few male rangers]]) have worn this in resembles a leotard, but the ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' franchise.suits themselves cover the entire body. Played straight with Miss America from ''Series/BattleFeverJ'' who, in her transformed form, wears an actual leotard that leaves her legs uncovered.

* ''Fanfic/SOE2AmazingAmazon'': Rei Ayanami, as ''Franchise/WonderWoman'', gets the classical Wondie leotard. The fact that Rei, a ''Japanese'' superwoman, runs around with an outfit [[PrimaryColorChampion with a coloring modeled after]] [[WearingAFlagOnYourHead the flag of the United States]] is explained as Hepaestus having been ''incredibly'' impressed with the United States' work on TheSpaceRace (which is when he made the outfit) and the reason why the uniform is a leotard is explained because... well... [[AllMenArePerverts Hepaestus occasionally felt lonely]].

One of the leotard's advantages is that it is more "modest" or less revealing than a two-piece garment like a bikini, and thus for a long time was used in comics, games, TV shows and media to convey the portrayal of a ''[[RuleOfSexy sexy]]'' female character (or at least, ''"bold"'') without enraging {{Moral Guardians}}. Note that also, back in {{the Eighties}} and {{the Nineties}} the leotard (or one piece swimsuit) was ''"the"'' ultimate in fashion clothing, being much more popular than the two-piece garments and portrayed in aerobics shows, ''Series/{{Baywatch}}'' and such, so it can be used in [[NostalgiaFilter retro references]] too.
