* This is a popular trope in video games, particularly first- and third-person shooters. This is because the player needs to be able to quickly distinguish enemies from allies

* Terry Pratchett averts this trope on multiple occasions, most notably with Lady Margolotta from ''Discworld/TheFifthElephant'' . Fluffy pink cardigans are not standard vampire wear, not even when patterned with a bat motif.

* Some RTS games, such as ''AgeOfEmpiresIII'', will avoid using two of the same nation in randomized skirmishes to avoid confusion when not using the [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience trinary color option]]. For a non-opposing example, upgrading your units gives them significant cosmetic changes that allow skilled players to identify the tech level of opposing units on sight. For example, upgrading ''AgeOfMythology'''s Ulfsarks to the highest rank makes their [[HeadHat bearskin hats]] vividly white, as opposed to the usual brown.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Invoked in "The Laws of Gods and Men", when the defendant is brought in shackled like a beast even though the idea of him overpowering the guards and fleeing is ridiculous. His accusers also appear in their finest and most conservative attire to play up their nobility and innocence.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'': The Master Builders dress in colourful, out-there outfits which represent their free and rebellious attitude and are often related to pop-culture, whilst [[BigBad Lord Business]] dresses accordingly to his name with his minions in dark, enforcement related clothes to symbolise a stricter, more systemised nature. Hell, [[TheDragon Good Cop Bad Cop]] is wearing an imposing black police officer's outfit and the [[SecretPolice Super Secret Police]] are all dressed in black.

* ''Series/BabylonFive'' takes a rather literal [[PlanetOfHats Planets of Hats ]]approach to this. The Centauri dress like the [[{{Prussia}} Prussian military]], the Narn favour leather oddments dyed and visibly stitched together, the Minbari go for priestly robes, and later, we see the warrior caste use somewhat more functional clothing. The humans start in the same outfits, but then splinter and argue over the clothing bin.
