Say you've got a globetrotting heroine who's a MasterOfDisguise with an UnlimitedWardrobe in a PeriodPiece who loves dressing in the local couture. All she may need is ten seconds behind an object (or a [[SexySilhouette backlit screen]] for [[{{Fanservice}} extra points]]) to change clothes. Or perhaps a crew of adventurers who [[OutrunTheFireball run through]] lots of StuffBlowingUp and get tons of ClothingDamage, all amid breakneck action scenes and location changes. Yet in the midst of all that, the heroes will ''somehow'' find the time to change into something else that's equally [[ImpossiblyCoolClothes impossibly cool]].

* In ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters'', there is a scene where Cortez switches into an odd, futuristic lab coat-type thing just by walking into a closet. One might think that this was just a convenient time skip so the player doesn't have to wait, but the entire wardrobe swap happens while another character is talking and takes no more than a sentence.

** In ''Film/AntMan'', Scott Lang manages to put on the Antman suit--unitard, boots, belt, gloves, helmet, the whole shebang--in exactly 10 seconds (closer to 6 seconds, he wastes 4 seconds fiddling with the helmet), a flock of ants were counting down the seconds until guards arrive for him.

* Similarly, in ''Our House'', the Music/{{Madness}} musical, the main character switches costume near-instantly in the middle of a song, hidden for a couple of seconds at most by backing dancers with umbrellas. Particularly neat because the show tells two AlternateReality storylines simultaneously, Film/SlidingDoors style, and the costume change signifies a jump from one story to the other.

* In ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'', at one point, Scott goes into the bathroom to change, and walks out half a second later, before the {{Seinfeld}} laugh track has finished. Given that he appears to live in a video game, this may be justified. He also empties his bladder in a second at one point.

This is played literally in videogames where [[AndYourRewardIsClothes Your Reward Is Clothes]]. Usually you can change your character's clothes, armor, weapons and accessories in the blink of an eye. Though for balance issues the game probably won't let you switch outfits -- or '''armor''' -- mid battle.

* It is fully possible to change your armor (and the rest of your equipment) ''in the middle of battle'' in ''VideoGame/MassEffect1''. (This is actually pretty useful if you're outside on a Level 1 Hazard planet. You can wear your normal armor until the meter is ''almost'' full, change to hazard-proof armor just long enough to let the hazard meter go down, then change back into your normal armor with no consequences.) The second game averts this by only allowing you to change your armor in the captain's quarters on the ''Normandy'' between missions.
