* Recurring DCComics supervillain Gentleman Ghost always appears in the clothes of his time period; as that's the nineteenth century, he's depicted with a top hat, full suit, gloves, monocle, and ruffled jabot.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Theatre/Heathers'', all the "ghosts" appear wearing whatever they happened to be wearing at the time of death. In the case of Heather Chandler, this is her pajamas. Unfortunately for Kurt and Ram, it's their underpants.

* JacobMarleyApparel: Several saints from the Art/SistineChapel's ''The Last Judgement'' surrounding the risen Christ are holding objects that were used to execute them for their faith.
** Saint Andrew is seen holding an X-shaped cross, which Christian tradition says the Romans used to kill him.
** Saint Bartholomew pops out because he's seen holding a man's skin while holding a knife in the other hand. This may look like Bartholomew skinned someone, but closer inspection of the skin makes it obvious he's holding ''his own flayed skin''.
** Saint Blaise is holding the iron combs used to rip his flesh apart.
** Saint Catherine is sitting next to a broken wheel of spikes, which legends says the Roman Emperor tried to use to slowly torture and kill her, only for it to miraculously fall apart as soon as she touched it. Unable to elaborately torture her, the Emperor had her swiftly beheaded.
** Saint Lawrence holds a ladder, referencing the legend that he died while being burnt over hot coils, only to snark that "It's cooked enough now," before his death.
** Saint Sebastian holds the arrows he was pierced with before being beaten to death.

* This is played straight in the ''OddThomas'' series for most ghosts. ElvisPresley is the exception to the rule, capable of appearing in whatever he feels like wearing. The main character speculates that because Elvis ignored the rules when he was alive, he continues to do so in death. (The ghost of FrankSinatra is later shown to have the same ability.)

* Ghosts in ''Webcomic/ChampionsOfFaraus'', have this, although it isn't clear if it doesn't apply to all the clothes a ghost had on when they died, or if it's a choice on the ghosts part.

* ''Series/SlingsAndArrows'' has a bit of a variation: the ghost of Oliver almost always appears wearing the same suit he was cremated in. In the second half of Season 2, we find out that he can change his outfit at will. [[spoiler: In the Season 2 finale, he uses this ability to play the role of [[MacBeth Banquo's ghost]] on stage.]]

to:

* Most of the ghosts in the ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostBusters'' that are the souls of dead people (and no, not all of them are, at least in the show) retain most of their clothing, including the zombie farmers in Ray's Farm (keep their farm attire), the ghosts of old Scotish soldiers in Ray's castle (including traditional Scotish cloth), the skeleton pirates (with pirate attire of course) and the ghost uncle in "Cry Uncle".

* Used in ''DeadLikeMe'', often for comedic effect. If the reaper doesn't remove the soon-to-be-killed person's soul before they die, the ghost ends up looking like their corpse. Considering the main cast dealt exclusively in [[HowToKillACharacter accidental deaths]], the results could be pretty extreme.
