* An episode of ''Series/LoisAndClark'' has Dr Klein explain to Superman that he has an aura that makes skintight clothing like a second skin for him. It's not merely about resistance: Superman was asking why, after being [[IncredibleShrinkingMan poisoned with a shrinking potion]], his costume was still fit. [[FridgeLogic But why would the cape be affected too?]]

* The ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse'', much like the source material, gives ComicBook/BlackPanther a vibranium-lined suit that lets him shrug off ''machine-gun fire'' with pretty much no reaction.

** Considering that Sephiroth's sword apparently was summoned out of sheer will ([[FridgeLogic despite turning "back" into the other guys dual blade katana which was dropped before the transformation]]) he might be able to will it not to break. Both the Buster Sword and Masamune were of course made with superhumanly strong soldier candidates as the intended users, presumably they are both steel-handwaveium alloys. Not to mention that WordOfGod says that RuleOfCool counts for all the fight scenes. And it should be noted that in the Director's Cut "Advent Children Complete" that Cloud suffers a good deal of ClothingDamage during his extended fight with Sephiroth.

** Averted in VideoGame/{{Doom}} (and just about any FPS which includes armour as an item) which has armour shards (basically a piece of bullet resistant material which can be slid into "pockets" on a protective jacket and replaced when damaged) and full suits of body armour as a pickups. Implying that at least the PlayerCharacter is suffering ClothingDamage to some equipment.

* In [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10894754/1/Trump-Card Trump Card]], Taylor builds a "Manton Field Generator" into her PowerArmor. This extends the benefit of whatever power she's currently copying to the armor and has the convenient side-effect of making both her and the armor count as organic to powers that only affect the inorganic and vice-versa.

** Note that this is mentioned explicitly in contrast to some other bricks, most notably Tennyo, who had ended up entirely naked more than once due to ClothingDamage. Eventually, a wealthy teammate ought Tennyo a ChainmailBikini made from Adamantium, which was the only thing that comes close to surviving what she can.
** The Costume Shop courses teach how to work with high-strength fabrics such as Kevlar. And Kevra, an improved form of Kevlar developed by a student. And diamond carbon-carbon nanotubules. And Adamantium. There is also a clothier in the nearby town who specializes in this, using her power over cloth and several high-tech devises to make both student uniforms and custom supersuits. Despite this, most of these are ''not'' subject to the mutants' own powers, as more than one student had found out the hard way.

* Franchise/{{Superman}} has no problem diving into the center of the sun without even leaving scorch marks on his spandex booties, so having bullets bounce off without ripping the material isn't exactly attention-getting. Pre-Crisis, this was explained by his wearing a "super suit" made from Kryptonian materials. Comicbook/PostCrisis, it was explained that the same force that made his skin nigh-impregnable transferred the quality to skintight costumes (thus allowing for dramatic rips of the cape, as well). Similarly, his glasses are fashioned from pieces of the windshield of the rocket that brought him to Earth, so as to allow his heat vision to be used without melting his glasses. Although whether his EyeBeams generate heat throughout their length or only where they converge varies according to artist and writer. He's been shown to be able to generate points of heat within objects ([[http://politedissent.com/archives/2065 heat vision heart massage]], anyone?) while others show parallel holes where his heat vision burned its way in. The pre-ComicBook/{{New 52}} canonical explanation is that Superman has a bioaura that protects his suit. He's even extended it a few times to save people. In the ComicBook/{{New 52}}, Superman wears skintight Kryptonian armor that is as nigh-invulnerable as he is. Prior to finding the armor, he wore CivvieSpandex that would [[ClothingDamage tear apart]] when he was damaged.

* Discussed and explained in the Naruto fanfiction ''Fanfic/SugarPlums''. It goes into detail about a special plant called kakri that is woven into clothing at various percentages which makes them chakra reactive and thus much more durable than normal clothing. It's explained that normal civilian clothing has at most ten percent in the weave, standard shinobi clothing has something like thirty percent with high quality clothing like chunin vests being something like sixty percent. Any shinobi who uses techniques like a full transformation (like Suigetsu, Kisame or Konan) has to have one hundred percent kakri clothing for it to transform with them otherwise it'll tear or restrict them.

* Pegasi in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' are said to have a form of tactile telekinesis as one of their innate forms of magic (while unicorns are the most obvious, all three tribes have their own) according to WordOfGod. This allows them to pull chariots and other such things through the air as if it was on the ground. It's also likely the reason they're able to pull off [[NotTheFallThatKillsYou catching things falling at high speeds without harming them.]]
