** In "[[Recap/Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS8E4FakeItTilYouMakeIt Fake It 'Til You Make It]]", Fluttershy is inexplicably able to change clothes, add makeup and put on jewelry BehindTheBlack to transform into one of her differing personas at lighting speed. At one point, she walks behind a display in one costume, and comes out in another, all without breaking stride. At the end of the episode, when Rarity [[spoiler:fires all of Fluttershy's personas one by one]], Fluttershy walks off in each costume only to immediately appear on Rarity's opposite side wearing another one, three times in a row.

* Happens in ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', overlapping with TransformationIsAFreeAction, when the girls change from their normal clothes to their [[{{Superhero}} Sailor Senshi]] clothes.
** A straighter example usually happens when the bad guy reveals themselves to the VictimOfTheWeek.

* ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'' has an example of this, during the title character's efforts to hijack a courier van in the first act. He ducks behind a low wall for maybe a half-second, emerging in full costume, without stopping mid-line in the song.
** However, if you pay close attention to the lighting, you will see it really took him the better part of the afternoon.

* Done constantly in WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes shorts, and shows inspired by them like ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''. [[RuleOfFunny Rule of comedic timing is in effect.]]

* ''WebVideo/PlayStationAccess'': Discusses how nice it is that you can change clothes just from having the new set rendered, especially when different clothes have different benefits. You could not try this in real life, which they parodied in a skit.

* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' fic ''Fanfic/TheVampireSteel'', Supergirl is watching over Buffy and goes from her "Linda Danvers" clothes to her Supergirl uniform over the span of seconds when she sees a couple of vampires accosting the Slayer.

* Same deal for ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'', though traditionally he has to at least duck into a phone booth. Spoofed (somewhat) in a ''ComicBook/SupermanBatman'' annual. Lois Lane thinks she's figured out the two heroes's identities, but then Superman uses Super {{Ventriloquism}} to distract her, then changes himself (and Batman) into pajamas via SuperSpeed and claims that they just woke up. Bruce, who isn't accustomed to the speed, gets [[VomitDiscretionShot motion sick]] (and Clark takes advantage of the situation to put him in a pink bathrobe and GoofyPrintUnderwear).

* ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} takes advantage of her superhuman speed to change instantly. One example of her changing clothes between panels is provided in the first issue of her ''[[ComicBook/Supergirl1972 first solo book]]'', where she quickly takes off her Supergirl uniform and puts civilian clothes on as someone is opening her bedroom's door.



* ''Smallville'' Season 11 features this, not just predictably and justifiably with Superman, but also with Nightwing. In the span of one panel that couldn't have taken more than 5 seconds, she goes from her underwear to full costume (including mask and ''lipstick'').
