* Like most anime, almost every character in ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' has an outlandish outfit with not only their own unique emblem and colour scheme, but also modifying their own clothing in various ways to get a unique look, from [[{{Ninja}} Blake]] [[AloofDarkHairedGirl Belladonna]] having one sleeve on one arm and a ribbon wrapped around the other to [[BoisterousBruiser Yang]] [[BikerBabe Xiao]] [[CoolBigSis Long]] having mismatched socks and an asymmetrical skirt. What makes ''RWBY'' a unique example is that it's a JustifiedTrope: eighty years before the events of the story, there was a huge world war where a fascist-style government tried to suppress all art, creativity and free will. They eventually lost to those who opposed such tyranny, and among the victors it became tradition to [[http://rwby.wikia.com/wiki/Color_Naming_Rule name their children after colours]]. Much like how fascism and nationalism were discredited as philosophies after the defeat of the Axis in World War II in real life, because of this shocking war over collectivism vs. individualism the world of Remnant places a societal emphasis on individuality, self-expression and general wackiness to a degree far beyond that of even our own world, which goes come way to explaining why between Jaune (who mostly wears a hoodie and jeans) and Pyrrha (who dresses in full Greco-Roman-styled armour), it's ''Jaune'' who sticks out more.

* ''Series/{{Oz}}'' has Adebisi's hat, which is a tiny knit cap much smaller than his (quite bald) head and is almost always worn at a gravity-defying angle; the mystery of how it stays on his head remains unsolved, and many fans actually considered it a separate character because of its apparent independence.

* {{Lampshaded}} by Lightsong of ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}'', who muses that if one day all his servants disappeared, he'd be totally incapable of getting dressed.

* Stan the Salesman's coat from the ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' games: the patterns [[UnmovingPlaid are always oriented the same way]] no matter how he moves his arms. ** They kept this, at great difficulty and expense, when the game went 3D.

* ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear.'' '''''VideoGame/GuiltyGear.''''' Oh ''God.'' {{Cosplay}}ing characters from ''Guilty Gear'' requires either a lot of time and sewing skill, or [[CrackIsCheaper a lot of money.]] Of course, since its made by the same people as Guilty Gear, VideoGame/BlazBlue is equally frustrating to do.

* ''Franchise/StarTrek'': Almost all of the Star Trek uniforms are the source of constant complaints. The miniskirts in the original would be horribly impractical outside the ship, and the sleeveless version in the reboot were horrifically cold on-set. Several characters in TNG developed back problems from the one-pieces, which were modified over the years to be more comfortable. The movies averted this, including the Starfleet [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080508061702/memoryalpha/en/images/b/b9/James_T._Kirk_and_crew_face_Federation_Council.jpg "Monster Maroons"]] used from ''[[Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan The Wrath of Khan]]'' onwards, and the three-piece grey uniforms used starting in ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'' and the similar design in ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise''. A massive upgrade compared to the [[WTHCostumingDepartment ghastly]] [[SpaceClothes Starfleet pajamas]] in ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'', which was the low point in the series.

* The girls of ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}''. Only a few of the outfits can be considered practical -- And they tend to be part of the occupation (For example, [[{{Miko}} Reimu, Sanae]], and [[NinjaMaid Sakuya]]. And even then they're not the most practical in a series where almost everyone flies.) The most impossibly cool must be Iku's shawl... thing that she can use as a {{whip|ItGood}} or [[ThisIsADrill drill]] and Utsuho's cape, which in ''Hisoutensoku'' has an ''[[UnmovingPlaid individually scrolling]]'' galaxy pattern on it.

There's even a Pixiv meme about drawing what artists think how the clothes work [[http://safebooru.donmai.us/pools/1765 here]]. The amount of thought given into these is really impressive.

* Similarly, Sam Fisher's suits in ''Franchise/SplinterCell'' have embedded light sensors and embedded sound sensors. According to the fluff, they come with heat regulators and an onboard water supply sufficient unto 12 hours, as well as a kevlar weave. This weave only helps deflect bullets at long range, and since enemies in the games are usually in spitting distance, it doesn't do much good.

** Robert Garcia is known for being [[SharpDressedMan dressed to the nines]] in each of his appearances, and even provides the page image for the ActionFashionista trope. ** Likewise, [[{{Bifauxnen}} King]] is rarely seen without [[BadassInANiceSuit her tuxedo]], complete with spats and peral earrings.
