* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' is this entirely by necessity; like the ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' example above, he is the WarriorPrince of Japan, and by default, the Emperor since his father is dead. However, he has no kingdom, and wanders from place to place as a destitute nomad. His only possessions are a plain white robe, his sandals, and his sword.

** It's a particularly old tradition for the Danish royals: Christian IX was a minor noble who only became heir to the Danish throne by agreement between the Great Powers after both the HeirClubForMen ''and'' the backup Heir Club for Women started scraping the bottom of the barrel. As a result, his only income was his /year[[note]]About $160,000 in 2013 US dollars[[/note]] officer's salary from the Danish Army (enough to live comfortably, but hardly the amount usual for a royal), and he lived with his wife and two daughters in a relatively small house in Copenhagen[[note]]Though called a "palace", it was actually just a large townhouse some burgher had built and the Royal Family bought up and called a palace[[/note]]--in other words, he lived more like an upper-middle-class professional than as the heir to the throne. The daughters shared a room and made their own clothes growing up, which proved a stunning contrast to their later lives: the elder, Alexandra, married a fellow named Albert Edward who [[UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfWindsor happened to be the Prince of Wales]], while the younger, Dagmar, married the [[TsaristRussia Russian Tsar]] (her son [[RomanovsAndRevolutions met an]] [[RedOctober unfortunate end]]).

* King Lino En Kuldes of ''SuikodenIV'' prefers a very simple vest and shorts to the usual trappings of royalty. As a result, he's easily mistaken for just a local fisherman by anyone first visiting Obel... something he likes to take advantage of.

** Shakuntala once has to dress like a prostitute as part of her disguise-and right there decides it would probably be more comfortable then normal clothes for a princess.

** Shakuntala once has to dress like a prostitute as part of her disguise-and right there decides it would probably be more comfortable then normal clothes for a princess. It also served some practicality for her: a princess would be expected to wear a fairly tight-fitting dress that restricted leg movement while the prostitutes wore loose silk pants...and the assassin-trained WaifFu expert knows what she'd rather fight in.

* The modern [[UsefulNotes/TheBritishRoyalFamily British royal family]] doesn't get much more dressed up than business formal, except for truly pomp-inducing ceremonies like a royal wedding (or, presumably, coronation, although that hasn't happened in ''quite'' a while--not since 1953). Even Prince Charles' investiture as Prince of Wales in 1969 (when he was 21) was an understated affair with his mother in a white hat and dress/overcoat thing and the Prince himself in military uniform. They'd look damn silly going about in capes and crowns in 2013.

** This extends to the BritishRoyalGuards; their iconic uniforms might be rather elaborate or impractical by the standards of contemporary combat uniforms, but compared to something like [[https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rom,_Vatikan,_Soldat_der_Schweizer_Garde_3.jpg the Pontifical Swiss Guard]] Parade Dress uniform[[note]]the one they wear for ceremonial duties; the Swiss Guard have an alternate, still-anachronistic but much less elaborate working uniform for everyday wear[[/note]], a red tunic, black trousers and boots and a [[NiceHat bearskin]] are positively austere.

** House Stark, compared to other great houses. Ned Stark is definitely one of the most humble noblemen in all of Westeros. Case in point: when the servant who receives Ned in King's Landing asks if he'd like to change into something more appropriate for the King's Council meeting, Ned just takes his riding gloves off and goes as he is. Meanwhile, like Stannis, Robb Stark dresses much like his men. In addition, compare Talisa's manner of dressing with that of Margaery. It says something about their house that for the most part, Sansa was the only one who wears Southern-inspired flashy outfits (in Season 1 due to being an AlphaBitch, Season 2 onwards due to being a hostage in King's Landing), and even she chooses to mute her style further come Season 6, wearing a Brunswick green layered dressówith the Stark insignia embossed in gold. Quite flashy for Northern wear, but definitely muted compared to the South.

Even his book counterpart wears a crown in the same style of those worn by the old Kings of Winter. Additionally, when the Stark troops cheer after their first victory against the Lannisters, the first thing he does is to somberly remind his men that the war has only begun, and that their final victory is far from assured.
