** ''Old World Blues'' features the Y-37 Trauma Harness, powered suit prototypes designed to be placed on an injured soldier in combat so that he could be 'walked' back to a friendly area in relative safety. Unfortunately, there were a couple of minor flaws in the Trauma Harness, namely an overly sensitive and agressive self-defense system and a lack of recognition on whether or not the inhabitant of the suit was, in fact, alive. Thus, the Big Empty is packed with autonomous harnesses ferrying around skeletons.
** Not quite as chilling, Brotherhood of Steel soldiers do indeed sleep in power armor.

* In ''Machinima/SteveAndCarlos'', this trope definitely seems in effect as the title characters are wearing their armor when they have absolutely no reason to while stranded alone together on an island without even any evidence of fauna to worry about.

* Used deliberately in ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'', in which the steward Denethor surprises onlookers by revealing that, despite being mostly confined within the kingdom's walls, he always wears chainmail under his clothes lest he become a pushover. It's one of the strongest hints that Denethor is becoming quite unhinged.)

* During Cortez' conquest of the Aztec, the natives attempted to launch a desperation night attack on the Conquistadors. It failed spectacularly, one of the reasons being that the Castilians had slept both armored and with weapons on hand.

* In ''DragonHalf'', little Pia's parents told her never to take off her armor. She never does, [[YouFailLogicForever not even when diving into a lake]]. Needless to say, she didn't float.
* [[{{Yaiba}} Onimaru Takeshi]] is always seen with his ScaryImpracticalArmor on.

* IronMan's suits of armor sometimes employed this trope. Originally, due to his heart condition, he had to wear a chest piece under his shirt which doubled as his chest plate. Other versions were skintight, allowing him to wear full suits under his clothes. Now that he's equipped with Extremis, the armor is expressly a part of his body. Most armors also come equipped with a music playlist for long flights, or even noise cancellation equipment if he wants to take a nap. ComicBook/WarMachine also had this type of armor during his "cyborg" period.
* For a time in ''CaptainAmerica'', Cap had to wear twenty four hour armor to be able to move. [[DorkAge Most people don't want to think about it.]]

* In ''TopTen: The Forty Niners'', Steelgauntlet claims he never, ever removes his armor because he's hideously disfigured underneath. In reality, [[spoiler:he's actually a robot, possibly the very first to possess full sentience, masquerading as a human to avoid the common anti-robot prejudice of the time.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/KingsQuest2015'' takes this to ridiculous levels. All the [[TheRival Knight Hopefuls]] are clad from head to toe in shiny plate armor that they never take off. No, not even the helmets. Or when they're crawling through damp caves. Or when racing on a track. Or ''playing board games''. Said armor doesn't restrict their movements, seems to weigh nothing, and must be very thin indeed considering [[NoodlePeople some of the knights' outer extremities]]. Contrast with Graham, whose sole "knightly" equipment is his BadassCape [[BagOfHolding of Holding]].

* Although he doesn't wear it in bed, Uhtred of Literature/TheSaxonStories has mentioned putting his mail on first thing in the morning and wearing it all day despite there being no risk of combat. The reason being that mail is bloody heavy, and he needs to be fully accustomed to moving around in it.

* In ''Videogame/PlanetExplorers'', players can wear armour permanently, even while sleeping out in the cold on a hard wooden bed, and seem to suffer no ill effects whatsoever.

* DoctorDoom apparently never removes his armor. It includes various high-tech systems allowing him to feed and survive despite the inconvenience this should have.
