* In ''Series/AuctionKings'', Jamie always wears the strangest suits. He also beat Paul in a rematch of the AmericanRevolution... IE - an arm-wrestling match.

** Crysoprase the troll godfather wears very nice suits. When he first appears in ''Discworld/SoulMusic'', it's noted that his suit may appear badly-tailored, but it isn't; "even a troll with no clothes on looks fundamentally badly tailored". Since most trolls just wear a loincloth to conceal whatever trolls have that they want to conceal, Crysoprase's dress sense becomes even more notable.

Doctor himself can be quite a snappy dresser (depending on incarnation). Of note: Doctors One and Three, whose suits were old-fashioned but would've looked nice in their eras of origin.origin; the Tenth Doctor sported a pinstripe suit and BadassLongcoat; the Eleventh preferred tweed and [[BowTiesAreCool bow tie]]; the Twelfth Doctor's primary outfit is a stylish callback to both One and Three, although he's just as comfortable in a hoodie.

* [[BattleButler Sebastian]] from ''Manga/BlackButler''. Almost always dressed in a snappy tail coat, and able to end someone's existence in several different ways. And the shinigamis, who wear it as their uniform.
* ''Manga/BlackCat'''s Sven wears a [[Film/{{Moonwalker}} smooth criminal]]-esque suit(with a red tie instead of a matching white tie), fedora included. In the anime it's never damaged and hardly changed, whereas in the manga, he's taken some articles off, to the point of no jacket, tie, or fedora; with his sleeves rolled up which was used to [[UpToEleven badass measures]] in a BackToBackBadAsses moment with Train.
** Train even gets in on the deal when he takes on Lugart Won(also an example).



* ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'' has Shizuo in his bartender's outfit; looking very sharp as he hurls vending machines at [[JerkAss Izaya]] and beats up punks on the streets of Ikebukuro.
** The outfit is associated with him and his badassery so much that he's known as Ikebukuro's "[[RedBaron God of Destruction (in a Bartender Suit)]]."



* Much like Sebastian, Hayate Ayasaki of ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'' is usually found dressed in a sharp butler suit. The same goes for every other butler such as Klaus, Nonahara, Himuro, and several others. All snappy dressers, all able to dish out brutal beatdowns to anything that threatens their masters/mistresses and friends. Hayate in particular even takes on a more cool, detached attitude as he casually dispatches gunmen, giant robots, and the various weirdos trying to cause him trouble.



* ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'': Saiga, the leader of YAMI. Very snazzy suit, easily one of the most powerful fighters in the series even after being involved in only a single battle.
* Rei Hououmaru from ''Anime/KillLaKill'' wears a [[WomanInWhite white]] suit jacket. Unusually she combines this with [[WhoWearsShortShorts hotpants]] and FingerlessGloves, both also in white, and [[CoolShades green-and-rainbow aviators]]. This is to mimic her boss Ragyo, who has white skin and clothes and rainbow patterned hair. [[spoiler:She ditches the outfit in the OVA after Ragyo's death.]]



* ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' has Kai Shiden, who's shown to have become a badass reporter and Jame Bond-esque sleuth, as well as having developed a taste in sharp suits. The ''[[Manga/MobileSuitZetaGundamDayAfterTomorrow Day After Tomorrow]]'' manga further expound on his exploits while donning said sharp suits.



* Tuxedo Mask in ''Manga/SailorMoon'' wears... well, a tuxedo with a hat and a BadassCape.



* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', this is the standard uniform for [[TheHunter Ghoul Investigators]]. They dress like normal officer workers, usually covering up with a white BadassLongCoat when out in the field. Female Investigators tend to favorite modest heels and pencil skirts with their suits. The vast majority are {{Badass Normal}}s that can go up against dangerous Ghouls and win.
** [[TheBrute Yamori]] and his underlings favor white suits, and are known for being brutal killers.

Luke Valentine wears a pristine white one for his assault on the Hellsing manor and gets only a single drop on him through his assault. Until the point he gets to Alucard, that is, and gets stomped.
