* 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...]]

* Mages in ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' all have {{Nice Hat}}s, except the white mages, which almost always have nice hoods.
** Specifically, the blue [[RobeAndWizardHat robe, pointy wizard hat]], black or shadowed face and yellow eyes are so iconic that they are almost as identifiable as chocobos and moogles. Still, it only appears in a few installments of the LongRunner series.
