* ''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]].

The forums decided Opera Gloves should be made into something other than a trope. See this thread.
* A bright red leotard with boots and [[OperaGloves gloves]] of the same color is the standard costume of superheroin Webcomic/{{Dasien}}. Commented upon in ''Webcomic/TheCrossoverlord'':

* In ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'', players are able to play as a purple leotard-wearing Samus if they complete the game in under three hours. You can also play as Samus in the purple leotard without beating the game by entering certain passwords, the most famous of which is JUSTIN BAILEY. Subsequently, Samus's leotard is sometimes referred to by fans as the Justin Bailey outfit. The leotard is also seen in the second best ending for the game.

** WonderWoman is the classic example, which is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in ''Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}}'', where Gordon Godfrey snarkingly compares her to a showgirl. Also played with in the movie, when Steve Trevor says "Let's get you into an outfit that doesn't get me arrested for solicitation."

*** Wonder Woman's ''{{New 52}}'' outfit was set to be another aversion, until her creative team opted for something closer to her traditional look. Certain covers and promotional images were even released with "pants" and "no pants" versions. ** PhantomLady is the trope founder

** The uniform of most of the [=N2R=] Nakajima Sisters formed after ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha [=StrikerS=]'', which is a leotard with a jacket and chaps worn over it. The only exception is Cinque, who wears a miniskirt with leggings instead. * Major Motoko Kusanagi from ''GhostInTheShell'' wears a leotard with a jacket over it, and really long stockings. She later gets pants. For some odd reason, the fan consensus is that getting the pants improves her character. * Kodachi Kunō of ''RanmaOneHalf'' will readily [[FlungClothing fling her clothes]] to reveal the leotard she wears underneath with little provocation. Somewhat "justified" by her [[MartialArtsAndCrafts martial art]] being based on rhythmic gymnastics... but mainly because she's a shameless loon.

* Not during the fighting part of the manga, but ''MahouSenseiNegima'' has plenty of gratuitous scenes of Makie performing her rhythmic gymnastics. And it's a flashy routine -- every time we see her practicing in anything ''other'' than her leotard, she gives a ''lot'' of {{Panty Shot}}s. * The [[spoiler:seven surviving]] title {{Claymore}}s wear an outfit like this after the time skip, often with a variant of a short skirt or ZettaiRyouiki.

* Lala's default costume in ToLoveRU is this, as it's basically a parody of Magical Girl outfits. And is a [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifting]] [[RobotGirl robot]] named Peke. It's also called "Dress Form", despite having more in they way of large frills on the sides than a full skirt.

** Starfire (When her costume isn't a ChainmailBikini, anyway.) In ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'' she's mistaken for a stripper after showing up on someone's doorstep.

Thigh High Boots is a disambiguation now.
** ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'s outfit was always leotard-ish, but she typically covered her hips with a skirt of at least mid-thigh length until the ComicBook/{{New 52}} reboot, which made it a straight up leotard with ThighHighBoots.
