* The members of Organization XIII, as well as Mickey Mouse, in ''[[KingdomHearts Kingdom Hearts II]]'' were technically wearing robes, making them this rather than {{Badass Longcoat}}s.

** Arguably, the formal garb for a Kage counts. Bonus points for the NiceHat. Minato Namikaze and (briefly) Naruto both sport particularly badass long robes with flame designs on them.

* In the first ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' game, Jedi robes are only the rather forgettable sort of tunic-ish things, without the gigantic over-robes. In the second game, all Jedi robes come with over-robes.

* The [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters many]] characters in ''MahouSenseiNegima'' tend to fall between this and RobeAndWizardHat - since the series' slight GenreShift towards {{Wuxia}} and martial arts, most of the wizardly characters qualify for both. In particular, [[strike:Albireo Imma]] Ku:nel Sanders during the TournamentArc, the protagonist Negi and his father Nagi. [[spoiler:Later, we meet the FinalBoss whose outfit runs the gamut between this and BlackCloak]]. Interestingly, the RedShirt wizards tend more towards AllEncompassingMantle. In a non-wizard example, Tatsumiya donned one once as a part of her ColdSniper persona.
* The Miroku brothers of ''GetBackers''.
* Subverted in ''RanmaOneHalf''. Mousse routinely wears long Chinese robes as his signature outfit, and his first appearance makes him out as strong and capable. Then something goofy happens (in the manga, the concrete roller he sliced in half falls on his head and knocks him out, in the anime, he starts wolfing down the bowl of ramen he just did an acrobatic routine with without spilling) and his "BadAss Cred" is gone in an instant, firmly establishing him as something of the ButtMonkey. Shinnosuke seems to be a BadAss marital artist in a janitor's uniform who is a master of fighting with a [[ImprobableWeaponUser pushbroom]]... but he has such a horrible memory he just keeps making an idiot of himself by, say, stumbling headfirst into his own boobytraps.

* [[http://www.wowwiki.com/Judgement_Armor The Judgement Armor]] in VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft. Though it is now widely outdated, it's still considered one of the best looking armors in the game, but you see a lot of it thanks to transmogrification and ease of getting it, however. Death Knights also start with one, and many transmog their armor to a purple recolor of the Judgment set.
