* In ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'', after [[LoveMakesYouEvil love makes Nessarose evil]], she switches from [[http://www.lataco.com/taco/wp-content/uploads/nessarose.jpg her neat blue-and-white school uniform]] to [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/1003/VitaniFyreWolf/wicked/20.jpg a Victorian-style all-black dress]]. Her wheelchair also gets far more decadent as her power corrupts and turns her into the so-called "WickedWitch of the East".

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan,'' ComicBook/DoctorOctopus' first battle against Spider-Man is fought in the civvies he wore during his FreakLabAccident. The fight is soon cut short when his [[CombatTentacles tentacles]] run out of power. He plans to get another, longer-lasting power source, but when he next confronts Spidey, he's also undergone quite the EvilMakeover, having donned a BadassLongcoat and replaced his NerdGlasses with equally {{badass}} CoolShades (eschewing the usual goggles derived from the comics).

** Although she was already pretty unpleasant to start with, to celebrate by far her most vile act of [[spoiler: blowing up the Sept of Baelor along with hundreds, if not thousands, of people to destroy her enemies the Sparrows and the Tyrells]] Cersei Lannister trades in her red and gold flared-sleeved gowns for some [[EvilWearsBlack black leather]] dresses with silver chains and shoulder armour accessories. Interestingly it's also a reversal of the usual costume switch in some ways because her previous outfits leant towards being elaborate with AbsoluteCleavage but her new ones are modestly high collared and minimalist by comparison, probably because they're [[RuleOfSymbolism designed to resemble]] her [[spoiler: late]] father's clothes.

** In ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' Kara flies off the handle and becomes a [[Franchise/GreenLantern Red Lantern]] (Red Lanters are berserk anti-heroes at best, and evil jerkasses at worst). She starts wearing a red-and-black version of her costume, completed with a red domino mask and a different ChestInsignia.

** Subverted by Comicbook/RachelSummers, who switched to the Dark Phoenix costume not because she was turning evil, but because she liked it better than "Mom"'s green Phoenix outfit (which Rachel wore briefly after the defeat of Necron).

** Subverted by [[LegacyCharacter Rachel]], who switched to the Dark Phoenix costume not because she was turning evil, but because she liked it better than "Mom"'s green Phoenix outfit (which Rachel wore briefly after the defeat of Necron).
* The current Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}, Kara Zor-El, did this twice. The first time was in ''Superman/Batman'' #12, when she is [[BrainwashedAndCrazy captured by Darkseid and turned into one of his Furies]]. This was very brief, but during that time she wore, essentially, skintight red-and-black pants and a black bra. The second time was when she was hit with black kryptonite in ''Supergirl'' #3, causing an evil duplicate to suddenly emerge from her body...already wearing a black version of her normal costume. Apparently, evil kryptonite clones have black clothing as part of their very nature. This trope was also lampshaded an issue later, when evil Supergirl switched her costume with the original's at superspeed, in an attempt to fool Batman and Superman as to who was the evil clone. The black costume returned in a later ''JusticeLeagueOfAmerica'' storyline where a battle with the Omega Man accidentally reawakened the Dark Supergirl persona within her.
** This was based on an old [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] story in which ''red'' kryptonite created Satan Girl, who likewise wore a black outfit. Her version had a cowl and no S-symbol, because her identity was originally a mystery.
