* [[Comicbook/{{Shazam}} Mary Marvel]] was traditionally treated as the "kid sister" of Franchise/TheDCU, and wore a white tunic-and-skirt combo. When she lost her powers, hijacked ComicBook/BlackAdam's, and went evil, she traded in her traditional costume for a black, body-hugging number with a mini-can-that-even-count-as-a-skirt.
** Note that the trope image is ''not'' this costume. Mary once ran into a kinky evil twin in an alternate universe, which was PlayedForLaughs.

Often overlaps with EvilWearsBlack (as in the new costume will be that color) or GoodColorsEvilColors. Sometimes overlaps with SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains (as in the new costume will be skimpier).

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed'', since the story is meant to be about redemption. As the story progresses, Starkiller gradually changes from a very menacing set of Sith robes to a set of white, yet still badass ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed''-esque robes. Of course, this is the canonical version. The player can choose to change their costume throughout the game. This is paired with a switch from red to blue lightsaber color when you "defect".

* ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem]]'' provides a strange inversion, probably induced by technical limitations - when Emperor Hardin is defeated and freed from [[MoreThanMindControl Gharnef's control]], his facesprite changes from his malevolent red emperor garb to the simpler white turban and cloak he wore as a playable ally earlier in the game before he dies. This can probably be chalked up to a desire to save on space by not making a portrait that'd be seen for all of ten seconds before never being used again; the DS remake, which doesn't feature the part with Hardin as an ally, fixes this by giving released!Hardin a variation on the emperor garb portrait with the GlowingEyesOfDoom removed, instead.

** Probably not entirely by choice in case of Eiji Hino/[[Series/KamenRiderOOO Kamen Rider OOO]]. His normal wardrobe contained bright, garish clothes for most of the story, but as he [[spoiler: continues to turn into [[MonsterOfTheWeek Greeed]]]], he starts wearing more purple, black and white (the colors of [[DeadlyUpgrade Putotyra]] combo).
** [[FromNobodyToNightmare Mitsuzane Kureshima]] of ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' starts out with light blue [[TrueCompanions Team Gaim]] hoodie and formal school uniform as a part of his dual life. His progress through darker shirts and sweeters ending with black bussines suit mirrors both his increasingly awful decisions and scaterring marbles.
** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'''s Hiiro Kagami changes from his white doctor's coat to a black bussines suit after [[spoiler:the BigBad Masamune Dan entices him by suggesting that he has the power to bring Hiiro's dead girlfriend Saki back to life.]].
*** In the same series, [[spoiler:Kiriya Kujo]] wears a black leather jacket when he starts working for the BigBad. He also gains a new Rider form that features far more black on it and starts using Proto Gashats (which equip him with monochromatic armor) as power-ups. [[spoiler:However, [[FakeDefector it's all an act]] to get close enough to Masamune to steal the Proto Gashats, and after doing so he returns to the good guys, wearing his trademark maroon jacket once more.]]

* ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'' reveals one about a third of the way into the game.

The most dramatic way to show that the protagonist has gone to TheDarkSide is to give him or her [[PaintItBlack a new costume]]. This outfit's coolness is sometimes inversely proportional to the coolness of the original, but is just as often [[EvilIsCool much cooler]], more flattering, and (for females) [[EvilIsSexy sexier]] as it [[SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains bares more skin and curves]], with a [[GoodHairEvilHair new hairdo]] and [[GoodColorsEvilColors costume colors]] to complete their EvilMakeover and look. A character who returns to the side of good usually ditches the entire costume.
