* In ''Film/SkyHigh2005'', this is apparently a skill all heroes and sidekicks learn by default. All they have to do is walk [[OffScreenRealityWarp out of sight behind a tree]] a civilian, and walk out the other side a superhero.

All they have to do is walk [[OffScreenRealityWarp out of sight behind a tree]] a civilian, and walk out the other side a superhero. There's one point during the climax where Stitches changes from dress clothes to his villain garb in the time it takes for the camera to cut away from him in back. To top it off, he was surrounded by nearly a dozen people while he was doing it.

* Naturally, Barry can do this by virtue of being extremely fast in ''Series/TheFlash2014''. In one episode, he doesn't even go anywhere, since he has brought his suit in a gym bag, and it looks like he just spins around in place at superspeed. Additionally, [[spoiler:Eobard Thawne is able to put on his yellow suit in the blink of an eye, since it's somehow stored in his ring. Barry asks Cisco to figure out if he can use the ring to the same effect, but nothing has come of that so far]].

** Persephone also runs through a number of barely discernible but clearly elaborate costume changes during her time spent catatonic in the Underground. Admittedly, it's unlikely she was 'literally'' laying on the same spot on the ground for a month, but one does nevertheless wonder where a homeless orphan fugitive gets such a variety of haute couture...other than Creator/JamieMcKelvie's always fashion forward imagination, that is.

* The Morrigan from ''Comicbook/TheWickedAndTheDivine'' is a triple-aspect goddess, who swaps seemingly at will between Macha, Badb, and Gentle Annie, all three of whom are still visibly ''her'', but with radically different hair and clothes, though of course, all versions of aesthetic are [[RunningGag None More Goth]].

* ComicBook/BlackPanther'can do this thanks to having a ''very'' high-tech costume, starting around Christopher Priest's run.

* JeremyIrons does this in ''Film/{{Lolita}}'' (1997). Entering the motel room's bathroom in his suit, a JumpCut has him instantly opening the door dressed in his pyjamas, no doubt to show how eager his character is to [[ThereIsOnlyOneBed get into bed]] with a [[DudeShesLikeInAComa sleeping Dolores]].

* Subverted in a teaser for ''Film/{{Deadpool 2}}''. He spots a mugging while in his civvies, and takes so long to get into costume that when he returns the perpetrator is long gone and the victim is shot dead. [[BlackComedy He just starts talking to the body and helping himself to the victim's groceries.]]
