* Averted and played straight in ''VideoGame/Dishonored''. Empress Jessamine was wearing a practical suit when she was murdered, but she was more of an outlier compared to the rest of Dunwall's DeadlyDecadentCourt who prefer to spend their days wearing extravagant outfits and having balls. [[spoiler: It also acts as a clue as to why she was murdered - she was investigating the Plague of Rats in the city and almost exposed the [[BigBad Lord Regent's]] plan to KillThePoor.]]

* ''SuikodenIV'' gets it right with King Lino En Kuldes, who wears a regal outfit in only one scene in the entire game. The rest of the time, he dresses like any other citizen of his kingdom, to the extent that no one who didn't already know who he was could tell that he was the King of Obel. (The main characters actually initially mistake his butler/chamberlain/advisor-type guy for being the king, since he was the only person in the palace who dressed even remotely formally.)
* Averted in ''GaiaOnline''. Johnny K. Gambino (who, while not actual royalty, certainly acts he is) normally dresses in fairly fancy clothes, even when working in the lab. However, recently he's taken a liking to lounging around his mansion in a blue bathrobe and socks, watching old [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed Ron Bruise]] movies.

* An ecclesiastical variation in ''FatherTed'': whenever a bishop is shown they're always "bishoped to the nines" (as described by writer Graham Linehan). In reality, Roman Catholic bishops wear clothing similar to the average priest when not taking part in services.
* On display several times in Uther and Morgana's wardrobe in ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' and Arthur's, to a lesser extent.

When a royal person wears otherwise unassuming clothes but retains a crown or similar garment to mark them as royalty ''for the viewer'' (even when it doesn't make sense in-universe), this crosses into DressCodedForYourConvenience.

is DressCodedForYourConvenience instead. To tell them apart, check if other characters who don't already know the character is royalty notice the regalia.

** Male monarchs usually wore their military uniforms with varying degrees of embellishment (Wilhelm II of Germany and Nicholas II wore uniforms studed with medals despite never being in combat, wheras Franz Josef and Karl of Austria wore considerably less elaborate ones) from the 18th century until after World War One.

* Mentioned and exploited in the Mary Tudor POV novel ''Mary, Bloody Mary''. Mary mentions that she doesn't care for the glittering jewels or finery, and often goes without them at court. At one point she's wearing a rather plain dress with no ornaments and is able to eavesdrop on a group of female courtiers - who assume that the girl kneeling by the fire is just a servant, rather than the princess.

* Unless it's an absolute emergency, [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Peach]] and [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]] always wear their royal dresses, [[KickingAssInAllHerFinery even when]] [[SuperSmashBros in hand to hand combat]]. If they're not, then they're probably playing golf or soccer or something.
