** ''Film/{{Thor}}'': [[Characters/MCULoki Loki]]'s green-and-gold armour is magnificent to behold. It's more stylish than Thor's or Odin's, which is not surprising considering that Loki is a master of deception, so appearances are important to him.

* In ''Film/BlackPanther'', one of GadgeteerGenius Shuri's proposed new uniforms comes with a gold trim that isn't as out-there as some of these examples, but is still enough that her brother turns it down because the idea is to stay out of sight. [[spoiler:When the "Killmonger" Erik takes the throne, and carries a distinctly "gangsta" theme with him, the ''last'' thing he wants to do is stay out of sight, and he apparently thought that one was worth wearing into battle.]]

** Except for his hat, which sported, according to Fleet Admiral Bill Halsey (another unpretentious practitioner of the "less is more" school of military dress), "more gold braid than I thought it was possible to put on a hat".

* {{Samurai}} armor and helmets. Some examples can be seen [[http://www.metmuseum.org/collections/galleries/arms-and-armor/377 here]]. The extravagant ones all come from the Edo period -- with its absence of wars -- and are the equivalent of European Parade Armour, such as this example from the [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/mharrsch/809566094/ Metropolitan Museum of Art.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' has very detailed customization options, not only allowing you to dress your mercenaries in fancy clothing but paint them very conspicuous colors or even equip ones with extremely visible particle effects (like a flaming hat). It's a much observed phenomenon that players with better cosmetics are perceived as being of higher skill, which functionally means they're more likely to be pocketed by Medics but are also likely to be prioritized by the enemy.
