** Of course the Riders themselves also apply. Of note is stuntman [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seiji_Takaiwa Seiji Takaiwa]], who's played ''every single main Kamen Rider'' since 2001's [[Series/KamenRiderAgito Agito]].[[note]]Except for [[Series/KamenRiderHibiki Hibiki]] who was played by Makoto Itou.[[/note]] During {{Crossover}}s, other actors have to play some of his roles, making them stunt doubles for a stuntman.

This is the single most important special effect of all time, bar none. The man in rubber suit technique was Hollywood's original go-to method (and still utilized extensively in {{Toku}}) for portraying the [[RubberForeheadAliens extra-terrestrial invader]], the experiment GoneHorriblyWrong, and [[EldritchAbomination the supernatural terror]] before computer generated effects were a twinkle in a programmer's eye. This is not to say that the method is perfect -- many a great riff has been made at the expense of the weaker displays of this technique -- but even at its lowest the man-in-suit still takes notoriety in the form of NarmCharm.

** Interestingly enough, ''The Rescue'' used this trope [[spoiler: to conceal the [[ScoobyDooHoax twist]]. Doctor Who fans were used to rubber suit aliens, so it actually came as a surprise that the villain really was a human wearing a costume, not a real alien.]]

* The ''Franchise/UltraSeries'' thrives entirely on the design of ever more ''Crazyawesome'' rubber suits. This applies to both heroes and villains.

** The VFX supervisor who started playing the Alien in the third movie (including ''Film/AlienVsPredator'') [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0940430/?ref_=sr_2#actor_main made a career out of this.]]

** The Sensorites are people in velour suits, with visible zips.** The Dalek storyline "The Dalek Invasion of Earth" (which capitalised on how un-rubber-suity the Daleks look) still contained a totally gratuitous encounter with one as a WackyWaysideTribe, which, curiously, is considered by fans to be the first true ''Doctor Who'' "monster" (the first non-humanoid, non-robotic adversary).

* The one-panel NewspaperComic ''{{Bizarro}}'' once showed a newscaster announcing, "The city is being attacked by an enormous Japanese actor in a rubber suit!" and sure enough, it's recognizably Godzilla ravaging the background.

* Parodied in ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'', where Jabba's Gamorrean guards are humans in rubber suits ''in-story'', apparently because Jabba has some bizarre tastes (it also conveniently makes them immune to Artie's Lost-Orb-enhanced shock prod).
