* The "Justice Lords", AlternateUniverse KnightTemplar versions of the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', all wore redesigned costumes with much more black and monochrome. Except for Justice Lord Franchise/{{Superman}}, that is, whose costume was mostly ''white'', reflecting his more black-and-white view of morality than "our" Superman. Note that Franchise/WonderWoman's famously {{Stripperiffic}} outfit becomes extraordinarily ''conservative'' for her evil version, either inverting SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains or reflecting the moralizing KnightTemplar philosophy.

Batman's outfit is also slightly brighter and boasts a silvery sheen, as this one no longer operates in the shadows (Gotham under the Justice Lord's reign is a [[CrapSaccharineWorld bright, pristine police state).]]

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' contains a subtle male example. After Yui "dies," Gendo switches from his white lab-coat and '80s-style prescription glasses to a dark blue (almost black) military jacket and orange sunglasses. Even more subtly, Gendo stops shaving and doesn't zip up the front of his military uniform, showing that he more or less stopped caring what he looked like after losing his wife.

Added DiffLines:

** Yet ''again'' from the Rebuild films [[spoiler: Misato's colder, more distant (and Gendo-like) demeanor is accompanied by a commander's hat, sunglasses, shiny black boots, and a more militaristic version of her red coat (which she now actually buttons up).]]

* Wrestling/TheUsos they ditched their colorful facepaint and shorts for monochromatic grey hoodies and [[EvilWearsBlack black pants]].

to:

* Wrestling/SethRollins For the large part, [[AvertedTrope averted]]. Apart from a couple [[Wrestling/TheAuthority Authority]]-esque [[CorruptCorporateExecutive suits]] he has come down to the ring in, Seth continues wearing his Shield uniform (sometimes complete with the Shield patch!) even weeks after defecting. They could just as easily have him wear his old trunks or UnderwearOfPower, raising suspicions that ''someone'' is a {{troll}}. Eventually started to play this straight, wearing leather tights that look like they could fit on an ''Franchise/XMen'' villain.

* In ''VideoGame/Splatoon2'', a heel-turned [[spoiler:(actually BrainwashedAndCrazy)]] Callie switches out her slightly flattering but still tasteful sequined pop-star outfit for a [[BareYourMidriff midriff-baring]] [[HellBentForLeather black leather ensemble]], complete with belly tattoo and shorts.

** 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.

* Franchise/KamenRider loves to color-code aligments with this. Bussines suits are usually a good sign of someone being evil or turning evil, ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'' being an exception.
** Kit Taylor/[[Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight Kamen Rider Dragon Knight]] is an interesting subversion as he had nightmares about turning evil, complete with a dark PaletteSwap of his usual [[RedIsHeroic red armor]], but his aligment did not change after receiving it. Yes, he is slightly less nice then before, but that's because of the things that has been heaped on him over the course of the story and not even a significant change.
** Probably not entirely by choice in case of Eiji Hino/[[Series/KamenRiderOOO Kamen Rider OOO]]. His wardrobe involved hideously bright clothes for most of the story, but as he [[spoiler: continues to turn into [[MonsterOfTheWeek Greeed]] ]], it starts incorporating 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.
** Hiiro Kagami changes from his doctor atire to black bussines suit after [[spoiler: betraying Doctor riders and the CR as whole in a DealWithTheDevil by the name [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Masamune Dan]] ]].
