For whatever reason, any female character (or even a male as a joke) could end up in this costume. Most often the pretext is quite flimsy, as it is hard to pretend that this is anything but {{Fanservice}}. Mainly seen in {{Anime}} and {{Manga}}; not absent from Western works but rarer, precisely because Playboy has a trademark on this particular outfit, and American copyright laws are a little stricter than in Japan. Oddly enough, the "anyone could end up in one" part applies ''even more'' in regards to [[TheMerch official merchandise]], with many characters who never wear it in-show still getting an official Playboy Bunny-clad artwork or figurine (or multiple).

* In one of her live shows Music/LaurieAnderson told the story of being recruited by a feminist group to help picket a Playboy Club for its exploitation of women, specifically the Bunny suits. During the protest she was approached by one of the Bunnies who said she was a single mother who was doing an honest job and making more than she could as a waitress in other clubs or restaurants. Then she asked Anderson why, if she was so concerned about the exploitation of women, she wasn't protesting sweat shops where women worked long hours in terrible conditions for piece work wages. Anderson admitted that her reaction was "Hmmmmm."

* In the ''ComicStrip/BloomCounty'' strip seen here, one of them shows up on her lunch break to file a personals ad, saying she's looking for a boyfriend who's "big and dumb". (As in, she's a shallow babe who wants some equally-shallow hunk. Clearly done to make Opus' bad day even worse, showing him that he's a loser because NiceGuysFinishLast.)
