* The Ur-example of this trope (in comics) is the Clock, the first original costumed hero to appear in comics. He wore a blue suit and a black "curtain mask" that covered his entire face.
* Early Golden Age two-fisted magician hero Mister Midnite combined white tie and tails of unknown color with a tophat, DominoMask and red cape.



* Midnight, a CaptainErsatz of the Spirit, originally published by Creator/QualityComics and now part of Franchise/TheDCU. Ed Gorman created a new version of Midnight as a back-up strip in '' ComicBook/MsTree Quarterly''.

* Midnight, a CaptainErsatz of the Spirit, originally published by Creator/QualityComics and now part of Franchise/TheDCU. Slight variations, though, was that Dave Clark had his civvies made reversible for changing into his alter ego's signature black outfit and had his hat lined with spongey material in case foes would try the old blunt trauma from behind.

* [[PhantomThief Phantom Renegade]] of ''VideoGame/{{Medabots}}'' is a parody of the flamboyant cape-wearing GentlemanThief character type, sporting a ridiculous [[ExpressiveMask expressive smiley mask]], [[{{Dojikko}} having a tendency to trip, fall out of trees, and generally be an accident magnet]] (fumbling with a rare medal in the first episode puts the entire series' plot in motion), and frequently gloats to himself about how good he is. This fact is lamp-shaded in ''Medabots'' ''TheAbridgedSeries'', where he denies being "a ripoff of the main character from ''ComicBook/VForVendetta'' or [[Franchise/SailorMoon Tuxedo Mask]]".

* While no hat is involved, Hei's "costume" in ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' is a creepy-looking mask along with modified black ops style clothing. The pants he wears are typical of a tuxedo, whereas the coat conceals a military style harness which holds his daggers.
** Note that, in episode 2, he is almost identified due to him going out wearing just the overcoat over his civilian style jeans and shirt.

* In the 1940s, the original "mystery man" costume of the original [[ComicBook/SandmanMysteryTheatre Sandman]] (Wesley Dodd) was a suit, [[BadassLongcoat long-coat]], fedora and gloves -- with a gas mask. This uniform was subconsciously [[RetCon inspired]] by the look of (''[[ComicBook/TheSandman Dream of the Endless]]'') who wore a robe and mask into battle and who granted Dodds his prophetic dreams. Dodd's costume later became more colorful to match the other superheroes of the ComicBook/JusticeSocietyofAmerica. No relation to the spandex-wearing Garrett Sanford or Hector Hall, save being derived from Dream of the Endless somehow.

** Finnish newspaper comic ''Fingerpori'' poked a fun at this, showing him with heavy tan-lines in parts where the mask covers his face. Holding a secret identity in a tropic environment is a tough job.

* Benjamin J. Grimm, The Thing from Marvel's Fantastic Four, usually gads about NYC wearing a fedora and longcoat while wrapping a scarf about his chin. A pair of sunglasses completes the ensemble. While not altogether concealing, the outfit tends to attract less attention than him walking about in his shorts.

* While it's not always apparent, a close look at the Zero costume of ''CodeGeass'' reveals that, along with a mask and cape, the main outfit is essentially a flamboyant business suit of the type the Chairman from ''IronChef'' might wear and as it happens the same kind of flamboyant, vaguely 18th century styled nobleman's outfit that the Britannian nobility wear in the series.
