* The ''VideoGame/{{Ar tonelico|MelodyOfElemia}}'' series: Most Reyvateils literally cosplay as a [[AndYourRewardIsClothes game mechanic.]] Their custom clothes are created from their mental images, therefore invokes different stats, biorhythms, and passive abilities. Interestingly in the first game, the [[GameBreaker best outfit]] for Aurica is [[FanService the one that she's only wearing towels.]]

* ''ComicBook/{{Superlopez}}'': This is how Superlópez's powers worked at the very beginning, when it was a weekly comic strip. Eventually this was rebooted, but still appeared in the storyline ''Los Alienígenas'', where he was powerless without his supersuit.

** And also in ''El caserón fantasma'' (The Ghostly Mansion), when a sleepy Juan López in pajamas jumps through a window and almost falls to his death. He even lampshades he had forgotten to change into his superclothes.

'''Mermaid Man:''' Sure! Power's all in the costume. Why else would we run around in colored undies?\\
'''Squidward:''' [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar I can think of three good reasons.]]

* ''ComicBook/TheFlash'': Professor Zoom, a.k.a. the Reverse-Flash, was a villainous variant in the issue where he was first introduced. In his native twenty-fifth century, he found a copy of the Flash's costume inside a time-capsule which had been recently unearthed after having been buried five centuries before, and he used technology to amplify the suit's residual speed-energy (from the many times Flash wore it), giving him super-speed whenever he wore it; that he then dyed the suit in reversed colors was a personal choice to signify his own criminal nature. This was later retconned to him replicating Barry's FreakLabAccident to give himself super-speed.

** During a period when her powers were stripped from her, she used the Sandals of Hermes and Bracers of Atlas to recreate her strength and speed. These were then "borrowed" by Cassie Sandsmark, to become the second ComicBook/WonderGirl. Cassie was later given innate powers by Zeus. In the {{New 52}}, Cassie is a mortal teenager who is able to summon an enchanted suit of armor by using a stolen pair of ancient Greek bracelets (though it's later revealed she also has some divine heritage as well).

* ''WebComic/SchlockMercenary'' has fullerene-cloth powersuits that are literally indistinguishable from normal clothes, and are in fact the Toughs' normal outfits. With these, characters can {{fl|ight}}y, [[NighInvulnerability shrug off artillery fire]], and [[SuperStrength punch through walls]]...although most of the Toughs have "soldier boosts", [[{{Nanomachines nano-tech enhancements]] that push their physical abilities past whats normally possibly for their given species, so some of them [[SuperSoldier can punch through walls anyway]].

** An episode of WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog did, however, give his sneakers some importance. Without them, [[RequiredSecondaryPowers he'd burn his feet running at those speeds]].

* In ''VideoGame/CostumeQuest'', kids transform into whatever their Halloween costume represents, and gain appropriate powers, in order to fight monsters. No explanation whatsoever is given for this, and everyone takes it for granted.
