* The superhero RPG ''MutantsAndMasterminds'' has a feat called Quick Change, which allows a character to change between his street clothes and hero uniform [[ChangingClothesIsAFreeAction as a free action]].
* Earlier editions of ''{{Champions}}'' had the Instant Change power, which did just what you'd expect. Recent editions have replaced that power with a limited form of Transformation (defined as Transforming one's clothing).

** Pre-Crisis Supergirl often took advantage of her SuperSpeed to do this. In ''Supergirl vol 1 #1'' she changes clothes in a split-second when someone opens her dorm's door. In ''Supergirl vol 2 #20'' she again instantly strips off her costume and puts her civilians clothes on when her friend Joan knocks on her door.

This was lampshaded in one comic with Thunderstrike where he asks ComicBook/{{Spider Man}} to talk over lunch, but has to switch to get money. He says he has no idea where his clothes go, "but at least my wallet's safe."

* In ''Literature/TsarGorokhsDetectiveAgency'', Nikita ends up doing this by accident when he gets too close to [[CoolHorse Sivka-Burka]]'s ear. Somehow, the horse sucks him into the ear and out the other, with him dressed as a typical prince from Russian fairly tales. His police uniform and bag are nowhere to be found. Those are later somehow retrieved by Baba Yaga. The horse later ends up defeating the BigBad this way, whose frail body can't support itself without his massive armor.

* 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]].
