* JustifiedTrope in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles''. Edna Mode, the ''fabulous'' fashion designer for supers, made the costumes for each superhero bulletproof, rocketproof, fireproof, and adapt to each user's superpower (for example, Violet's costume became invisible when she did). Plus, they're machine-washable.

* This is actually one of Franchise/{{Superman}}'s many powers; any clothing that touches his skin is as impervious as he is (and in an episode of ''Series/LoisAndClark'', shrinks with him). Only the part that actually ''touches'', though, which is why his cape always gets shredded. In the comics this is a result of a nearly skin tight forcefield. During UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}} it was because ''everything'' from Krypton was as invulnerable as Superman.
* [[TheComicallySerious Samuel Steele]] from ''[[Comicbook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck Hearts of the Yukon]]'' by Creator/DonRosa. [[TheAce A superintendent of the North-Western Mounted Police]] does not get... [[DirtForcefield 'Muddy']]. Nor, for that matter, 'blown-up'. Sam Steele was a real person, incidentally, and would probably have given his right arm for this ability.

* Most old westerns did this. Franchise/TheLoneRanger never got mussed, despite the fact that his shirt was light blue and his pants were tan. Neither did Gene Autrey or Creator/RoyRogers. Creator/JohnWayne never got mussed, either. In fact, it was so pervasive in westerns that it was parodied in ''Film/TheVillain''--Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger is dressed all in white and he still never gets dirty.

* In ''Film/ResidentEvil'', Spence spends most of the film wearing a tight t-shirt that doesn't get torn despite fighting against hordes of zombies, nor do his exposed arms ever get scratched. For comparison, Matt and Kaplan get plenty messed up.

* Space Marines in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' almost always have immaculately clean armor. Justified, as they regularly have legions of chapter serfs polish it so that their heraldry is easily visible.

to:

* One minor benefit of the Creature of Fable arc from ''TabletopGame/ChuubosMarvelousWishGrantingEngine'' is that [[RealityWarper the world will tend to bend]] so that your preferred look is dominant at all times. This means that someone whose signature style is "completely immaculate" will not only tend to emerge from crises and disasters with their suit perfect, but if someone deliberately messes it up it'll tend to repair itself, and even if they are stripped naked and thrown into the middle of the Walking Fields it'll probably be only a matter of time before they find a conveniently abandoned suitcase containing a suit in their size.
