* MickeyMouse just doesn't have that same iconic status without the red shorts and yellow shoes. Same goes for DonaldDuck and {{Goofy}} and their respective wardrobes. Even their outfits in ''KingdomHearts'' are still based on their classic looks. Mickey still has the red shorts and big yellow shoes. Donald's shirt is still blue and has a (modified) sailor collar. Goofy still has a tall hat and a vest over a turtleneck.

** Played with in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTriForceHeroes'', which is set in a kingdom where fashion is SeriousBusiness. Link is given the standard green outfit when he's tasked with saving the day at the beginning of the game, but there's no special meaning to the clothes and they're only to replace the fashion disaster he was wearing before. Players are even discouraged from wearing the default outfit in favor of other costumes that provide various special abilities.

Players are even discouraged from wearing the default outfit in favor of other costumes that provide various special abilities. Because of this, promo art does favor the default outfit, but not exclusively. Even then, it's a game with ColorCodedMultiplayer, so red and blue are seen as often as green.
** 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, with the green gear nowhere to be seen.

* ''Franchise/JamesBond'' has worn a tuxedo or dinner jacket at some point in nearly every movie, with the exception of ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice'' and ''Film/LiveAndLetDie''.

** The Comicbook/{{X-Men}}. They've had a huge variety of outfits over the years. Even Wolverine's yellow spandex doesn't identify him as well as just his hair and his claws.

Added DiffLines:

* ComicBook/{{Diabolik}} and [[SympatheticInspectorAntagonist Ginko]] have a [[PaintedOnPants skintight]] [[McNinja ninja-like]] black full-body suit and a white shirt-black suit-red and black striped suit outfit respectively. In a variant, Ginko actually has multiple red and black striped suits with stripes of different sizes and tends to wear them at random and never two days in a row, so that Diabolik (a formidable MasterOfDisguise) [[GenreSavvy will never know which tie to use when he replaces him unless]] [[MuggedForDisguise he resorts to kidnap the actual Ginko]] (something rather hard to do)..

* The leather jacket and fedora IndianaJones wears. Especially the {{Fedora| Of Asskicking}}. Take away the hat, and you've got Henry Jones Jr.
** The hat at least was specifically chosen to invoke this trope. When seen in silhouette, they wanted Indy to be distinguishable from all the other characters. This is one of the reasons the hat never comes off as well, no matter what happens. Also, it covers Indy's face, so you can't tell when it's Harrison Ford and when it's a stuntman.

* Wrestling/RicFlair just isn't Ric Flair without a gaudy, sequined robe. He kept wearing his long after ring robes had gone out of fashion in wrestling. Additionally, Ric always wore matching trunks, kneepads and boots and the trunks always were embossed with his initials in the same fancy font.

** Ironically, Mickey's outfit, while ubiquitous in comic books and merchandise, was actually not worn for much of his film career. The cartoons made between 1942 and 1953 have him wearing more contemporary clothes, not wearing the red shorts on the big screen until the 1995 short ''WesternAnimation/RunawayBrain''. Furthermore, some of his more iconic roles (the Sorcerer's Apprentice in ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'', ''BraveLittleTailor'', and others) have him wearing some other uniform (although the Apprentice costume is nearly as iconic as the shorts).

Added DiffLines:

* Wrestling/{{Sting}} has worn his post-[=nWo=]-invasion look longer than he wore his "surfer" gear. The Crow gimmick consists of a long black trench coat, black boots, black gloves, black scorpion-themed bodysuit (later replaced with one of his merch t-shirts) and his trademark black and white face paint.
