* 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/JeanGrey-Summers of the ''ComicBook/XMen'' is able to change into multiple outfits within a matter of seconds. Due to her Phoenix powers, she can alter the molecules of her costumes at a whim. ** Bobby even says all he has to do is ice up and put on his boots at one point. ** Early on (we're talking [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks really early on]]) that used to be the extent of his costume. If the ice was melted/broken by a bad guy, Bobby was in his boxers and his big yellow boots. ** Both Jean and her KidFromTheFuture Comicbook/RachelSummers have also done this with multiple other people's clothes at the same time, when the X-Men need to become inconspicuous by changing into civilian clothes. In Rachel's case, she almost collapsed from the effort because at the time she didn't have Phoenix powers, just "ordinary" telekinesis.

* Parodied in ''Film/SkyHigh'' when the superhero students's studies include doing this... to get into their gym clothes. One of the teachers has this as a RunningGag: he'll change his clothes in seconds at the drop of a hat, even if he spilled just a drop of punch on his tux. * {{Spiderman}} can do this so fast people that fight him ''think they're fighting a team of four''.

* Played for laughs in ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' where the Janitor switches into his white coat in a matter of seconds, in the episode where he acts as Chief of Medicine while Kelso's gone. The weird and funny thing is how the characters literally see him change through his clothes, with the camera cutting to their bewildered faces while so. ** This is a recurring ability of the Janitor's, also done when he was given a blue uniform to replace his grey one. ** He also shows the ability to change rather quickly (and don a fake mustache) in an attempt to convince JD and Turk that he has a twin brother.

* The largely-ignored Capcom game ''Beatdown: Fists of Vengeance'' for the PS2 actually requires you to change clothes in order to lower the levels of the "enemy detection meters", one for gang members and one for police (they usually run independently of each other). Of course, buying clothes costs money, but changing clothes (either at the clothing store or in the closet of your home-base bar) is free. Ironically, simply changing to a different COLOR of the same outfit will still lower your detection meters despite looking almost exactly the same as the outfit you just changed out of.

* in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'', this is undeniably true for Rarity. All it takes for her is to lean behind a rack of clothes to don a ''Sgt. Pepper'' outfit, and a cut to Applejack talking to change into full Music/DaftPunk gear. * This continues in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames'', as Rarity makes entire racks of potential costumes for Pinkie, RD, AJ and Fluttershy. When she rolls Pinkie's rack to her, Pinkie pops out of it wearing a pirate's bandana and eyepatch-despite there not being a pirate costume on the rack. She also yanks a form fitting spandex outfit onto Rainbow Dash in one head-to-toe pull-and the skirt RD was wearing obligingly disappears.

* Happens in ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' since characters there are trapped in an [[AbsurdlyHighStakesGame online game]]. One scene in particular comes to mind, in which Asuna misunderstands Kirito's intentions before they become a BattleCouple. She scrolls through a menu, selecting items and causing her clothes to [[{{Fanservice}} instantly disappear]]. Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-snVrmICO4
