** And the original [[TheWasp Wasp]] was, for many years, changing costumes almost as frequently. Originally this was said to be just because she was TheChick, and "women like lots of clothes." Later she was given a less offensively stereotypical HandWave as an offshoot of her fashion-designer background, and she has even designed costumes for other Avengers over the years.

** Averted by ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', where Link gets all sorts of clothing options, and all the promotional material features Link in a ''blue'' tunic and no hat, though the green gear is still supposed to be present somewhere. WordOfGod from the creators is that they held the iconic outfit back because they were afraid that if it was available too early, players would wear it exclusively for the entire game and ignore all the other equipment available.

** Expect for those in ''MegaManZX'' series, where only the bearer of a pure Model X has that scheme, with protagonists bearing a mix of ''[[VideoGame/MegaManZero Zero]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/MegaManX X]]'' outfits.

** It is much less ubiquitous in comic books than you think. Ever since FloydGottfredson, the ''first'' guy to seriously write [[ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse Mickey Mouse strips]], Mickey has been shown wearing just regular clothes in comics. (Gottfredson started a trend where Mickey is just a regular action comic hero who happens to be a FunnyAnimal). The original outfit is generally acknowledged by making his standard outfit red trousers and a white shirt, with whatever other clothes fitting the occasion (he generally wears a green baseball cap outdoors when casual, a BadassLongcoat and fedora outdoors when formal, etc.). When he started wearing the original shorts in recent European-sold Disney comics, fans cried DorkAge.

* WonderWoman started to wear pants and even armor instead/in addition to her tradition 'one piece bathing suit' look. The traditional, core Wonder Woman has stuck more to the classic outfit with only a few notable exceptions. She has always kept her iconic bracers, hairstyle, and tiara though, to tie them together.

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} has traditionally kept her traditional costume: long-sleeved blue shirt, blue or red skirt, yellow belt and red cape and boots. Every so often Dc decides to change it -usually ditching the skirt-, but such changes are seldom well-received and Dc always returns to the classic look. ''[[Comicbook/{{Supergirl 20011}} New 52 Kara's costume]], which replaced her traditional outfit with an armor-looking blue leotard with a red crotch patch drew some ire from fans.

* Superman's traditional red, blue, and yellow costume remained basically unchanged for almost 60 years. Then in 1997, DC got it in its head that Supes needed to be "updated". They traded his traditional powers for some vaguely defined electromagnetism/[[EnergyBeings energy being]]-type powers and his iconic suit for a cape-less blue and white ensemble. The change resulted in a backlash. While the powers and the costume were pretty cool in concept, their origin was far too mediocre to justify such a radical change to such a beloved and iconic character. The new costume and powers lasted all of 13 months before DC returned to the classic version.

*** Even the relatively minor alterations made to Franchise/{{Superman}}'s outfit in the film ''SupermanReturns'' drew flak from fans. The S shield being smaller and raised and and the darker-than-previous colors being the biggest areas of contention.

* The entire concept of the LegacyCharacter owes a lot to this trope. It's easy for any random guy off the street to claim he's [[MemeticMutation Chuck Norris]], but even if he ''is'' a total {{Badass}}, no one will be taking him seriously. Even if Chuck designated him as his official successor. Put him in Batman's suit and have him be the new Batman, and [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond that's another story...]]
