* Ashleigh, in ''Literature/{{Sanctioned}}'', has only two changes of clothes, and they look pretty similar. She prefers not to own a lot of things, as it's easier to move on when you don't.

* Harry Dresden, of ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' is almost never seen in anything other than a [[BadassLongcoat black duster]], black jeans, and a grey T-shirt unless the plot call for a change in wardrobe.
** Considering that someone is usually trying to kill Harry and that the duster is essentially magicproof and weaponproof enchanted leather armor, wearing the duster makes a LOT of sense.
*** {{Handwave}}d in that he's very set in his ways and doesn't like changing what he considers a working formula.
** He attempts to get around this in ''Small Favor'' when running and hiding from Summer's goons. He ditches the black duster, and gives it to Thomas, along with a kind of Clone Form spell, thinking that Summer would hunt for ''Thomas'', and make things easier for Harry. This comes around to bite Harry when [[LightningBruiser Tiny Gruff]] shows up.

* Most of the Hogwarts faculty in ''Film/HarryPotter''. Amusingly, Richard Harris's Dumbledore had a different regular outfit than Michael Gambon's Dumbledore. As in the book Dumbledore wore "half moon" spectacles when the role was originated by Richard Harris in the first movie. When Michael Gambon took over the role of Dumbledore in the third movie he was given light blue silk robe and a smoking cap with a tassel and a string tied around his beard. It became his look for the rest of the series. Averted with [[UnlimitedWardrobe Lockhart]].

* ''Franchise/StarWars'' has always been touch-and-go with limiting wardrobes (usually opting for the "live-action" version mentioned in the article intro, such as Han Solo's outfit). Military factions, such as the Jedi or Naboo security force, get a pass due to their outfits being a uniform. Possibly the most absurd manifestation in the series, though, comes from Episode I. Anakin, originally living on the desert planet Tatooine, wears the same outfit while podracing, on a starship, in various buildings on a planet-wide city, on another starship trip, and finally a temperate/swampy planet over the course of what has to be several days. It's notable that, in the ''same movie'', Queen Amidala goes through [[UnlimitedWardrobe a great many outfits]] over the same span of time.
** Consider that Anakin is a ''slave'' when Episode I begins. He probably doesn't own more than one or two sets of clothes, and Watto doesn't seem like the type to spend lavishly on his chattel. Amidala, on the other hand, is a ''queen'' with all that implies.
** His son's luck isn't much better. In Episode IV Luke's stuck in that doofy FarmBoy tunic and hose for almost the entire movie, from the Jundland Wastes to Mos Eisley to the ''Millennium Falcon'' to the Death Star (except for disguising himself as a stormtrooper, of course). He only gets a new outfit - an X-Wing pilot uniform - when they reach Yavin 4, and then sticks with ''that'' until the movie's final scene.
** [[RuleOfThree Yet again]] in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', where Rey goes to several planets before she changes out of her rags in the finale (well, sort of. It looks almost exactly the same, so she comes across as only having one outfit in the film). Like Anakin this is justified since she's a scavenger and is paid in small rations of food and nothing else, making it hard to get new clothes.

* Most Franchise/{{Disney|AnimatedCanon}} characters have an iconic outfit that they wear for most if not all of the movie. A main character will get a costume change with a change in circumstances, but rarely for any minor reason. A secondary character will never change clothes. Strangely, this applies both to [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} poor characters]] and to [[Franchise/DisneyPrincess royalty]].

* If Voldemort of the ''HarryPotter'' series ever wears anything other than a black robe (aside from in flashbacks), it's certainly not stated.

* The only time Jack Skellington of ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' ever changed out of his tuxedo is, of course, when he [[SubbingForSanta imitates]] SantaClaus (well, besides one scene when he's in bed and wearing off-white pajamas, but that's only for a couple of minutes). Possibly even taken UpToEleven, since in "Poor Jack", when Jack declares that [[LargeHam HE IS THE PUMPKIN KING!!!]], he rips off the tatters of his Santa outfit to reveal that [[FridgeLogic he's been wearing his tux underneath the suit all this time]]. Sally also wears the same dress throughout the film, though considering that either she's locked up by [[MadScientist Dr. Finklestein]] or [[StalkerWithACrush stalking Jack]], this is more justified. Both cases are also justified with the fact that it would be needlessly complicated to have StopMotion characters wear different clothes.

* Justified in ''WesternAnimation/BarbieAndTheDiamondCastle'', as the main characters are likely too poor to afford more than one dress (and one of Alexa's wishes is to have more dresses than she could possibly wear), and no one else is seen for more than a day.
