* Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar wrote in his ''Commentaries'' that his soldiers would immediately recognize him by the red cloak he habitually wore. Many more modern renditions have him wear a laurel wreath at all times as well, as both Caesar and laurel wreaths are strongly associated with Rome.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'': InUniverse, [[GodOfGood The Unconquered Sun]] is known for his four relic: a spear, a shield, a horn, and a branch of laurel. These items can be loaned to anyone he sees fit to wield, and each of them is by design a GameBreaker.

to:

** Yarrick (again)'s most distinctive feature is his artificial arm. While this is nothing new in 40K, the fact that it's an ''ork''-made arm and power claw (which he ripped off the ork that cut off his arm) is highly unusual.

** Incidentally, in his video [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PN4Umsjp6Cs "Ubiconic"]], Jim himself [[DeconstructedTrope extensively ripped apart]] Creator/{{Ubisoft}}'s obsession with marketing items belonging to their characters as "iconic" even though the franchise was brand new, [[ActionGenreHeroGuy the character was as generic as they come]], and the items were in no way truly "iconic", just so they can offer reproductions of them as [[PreOrderBonus preorder bribes]]. He scathingly advised that Ubisoft read a dictionary before they [[YouKeepUsingThatWord throw the word "iconic" around so much]], suggesting the most "iconic" things about Ubisoft were their predilection for [[ObviousBeta releasing games in a horribly bug-ridden state]], releasing games packed with intrusive and inconvenient {{DRM}}, absurdly overloading every release with {{Pre Order Bonus}}es to try and gouge as much money as possible from their players, homogenising all their games into the same open world QuicksandBox, just [[BlatantLies repeatedly lying to everyone about everything]], or most of all, [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment their own misuse of the word "iconic"]]. The [[RageBreakingPoint last straw that triggered this rant]] was Ubisoft's attempt to market the boring brown leather jacket worn by one of the characters in ''VideoGame/TheDivision'' as "iconic".

* Creator/{{Ubisoft}} deliberately tried to invoke this trope with "[[https://www.xboxachievements.com/news/news-17688-Watch-Dogs-Gets-a-New-GAME-Exclusive-Premium--Vigilante-Edition-.html Aiden Pearce's iconic cap]]" in ''VideoGame/WatchDogs''. It didn't work; not only were they frequently [[http://www.somethingawful.com/news/watch-dogs-bonuses/ mocked]] for trying to make the hat iconic before the game even came out, but when it finally was released, ''Watch_Dogs'' was met with a lukewarm reception and Aiden was widely regarded as an unremarkable VanillaProtagonist. It didn't help that the item in question was just an ordinary-looking baseball cap with the game's innocuous logo stitched on.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Mixels}}'' has Cubits. They're the base to [[FusionDance Mixing]] for the Mixels, and each episode contains at least one. Each tribe has their own color scheme of two different colors or shades of a color, which signifies which tribes can use the Cubit. However, the most iconic one are the Rainbow Cubits, a six-colored Cubit that any amount of Mixels from any tribe can use.
