* Happens many times in ''WesternAnimation/WorldOfWinx'', most notably when Stella changes into a journalist outfit in the blink of an eye simply standing on an elevated platform as the clothes instantly materialize around her.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' episode "Rollercoaster: [[MusicalEpisode the Musical]]," Phineas manages to change from his normal clothes to a tuxedo and top hat just by dashing behind the tree. He then gently pushes Ferb behind the tree for the same effect.

* In the sidebar example power "Instant Change" in the ''HEROSystem'' Fifth Edition book, it recommends that the power (which allows a hero to instantly go from street clothes to his superhero outfit) function as a Zero Phase Action (essentially a free action) instead of the Half Phase action that it should, according to the rest of the rules, take.

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.
