*** ComicBook/TheFalcon wears a black and gray outfit similar to his [[UltimateMarvel Ultimate]] look, rather than his classic red and white costume (which Creator/AnthonyMackie, who played Sam Wilson in the film, was actually disappointed by. In a rare change, he was looking forward to wearing the red and white spandex). The Winter Soldier himself has a more practical face mask and goggles rather than his DominoMask from the comics.

* None of the characters wear their [[VideoGame/StreetFighter video game]] outfits in ''Film/StreetFighterTheLegendOfChunLi''. BigBad M. Bison even wears a black business suit instead of his red costume and cape from the games.
* The LiveActionAdaptation of ''Film/SpeedRacer'' had Racer X wear a black leather suit in lieu of the white and red one he wore in the anime; in a move highly similar to the X-Men movies.

*** Played straight with Lisa Snart aka Golden Glider. As her supervillain monicker suggests, she is wearing a white outfit with heavily golden accents. In the show, she's a straight-out WomanInBlack in CivvieSpandex.

*** In season two, ComicBook/{{Hourman}} wears a predominantly black suit, with bits of red and gold. While [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/09/17/70/091770c6fbb0f5a34e4cda935de65de7.jpg they retained the original's color scheme]], the show's suit [[http://media.comicbook.com/2016/10/hourman-207784.jpg is still much darker]].

** ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' for the first time has Batman wear the black-and-gray suit; both of which appear to be heavily influenced by the character's appearance in ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightReturns''. Similarly; Comicbook/WonderWoman's suit is still red and blue, and her red and white ThighHighBoots have also been replaced with armored gold boots with red on the sides, but the colors are significantly more muted. Superman's suit was redesigned to be brighter than in MOS, but is still comparatively brighter.

* The ''[[Film/MightyMorphinPowerRangersTheMovie Power Rangers]]'' movie didn't tone down the heroes' colors, but gave them padded, techier-looking suits. Interestingly, later series like ''[[Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm Ninja Storm]]'', ''[[Series/PowerRangersSPD SPD]]'' and ''[[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive Operation Overdrive]]'' would outfit the heroes in black leather when they weren't in full multicolored Ranger form.
* The 2017 ''Film/{{Power Rangers|2017}}'' movie retains the colors, but with darker shades. Also, the suits now look like advanced body armor instead of spandex.

** ''Series/LukeCage2015'' generally uses the NotWearingTights trope for most of the characters, but Diamondback zig-zags this. He's introduced wearing dark combat gear, but in the Season 1 finale, [[spoiler: he dons a green and yellow suit of PoweredArmor that looks extremely similar to his snake-themed costume from the comics]].
* ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGoBusters'' was the first SuperSentai series to feature the heroes in leather outfits instead of the traditional spandex, though the costumes do still contain a lot of color in addition to the black. Allegedly, this was done to appeal to American audiences when the show was inevitably adapted into a ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' installment, though in a twist of {{Irony}}, it turns out that ''Go-Busters'' was passed over, due to low toy sales in Japan.

** In ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'', Chronos wears a black and dark green suit of PoweredArmor instead of the comics' green and gold, thus making him more of a MalevolentMaskedMan.



* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'':
** Mike Peterson, the only vaguely "superhero-ish" character from Season One , wears a black ComicBook/{{SHIELD}}-issued bodysuit before switching it.
** Blackout's "costume" is basically a black shirt with a black duster.
** Most of the superpowered characters in general either tend to wear dark S.H.I.E.L.D. bodysuits like the rest of the cast, or [[NotWearingTights just don't have any costumes whatsoever]].
* ''[[{{Series/Daredevil2015}} Daredevil]]'':
** In the first season, the title character wears various black outfits, usually including civilian clothing and a black hood. This is based a black outfit designed by John Romita Jr during his and Creator/{{Frank Miller}}'s influential Daredevil run. He's frequently referred to as "the man in black." At the end of the season, he gains his trademark suit and name, though his suit has noticeably more black in it than his comic version.
** Wilson Fisk is fond of wearing black suits rather than white like he does in the comics.
** Elektra in the show also wears black and burgundy-with-muted-black outfits instead of red.

** In ''Series/JessicaJones2015'', Jessica turns down a suit that looks like Jewel's from the comic (Jessica being Jewel for a short time) because of its colours. She ultimately chooses no super suit, but a leather jacket. However, Kilgrave wears bright purple, likely as a stand-in for the fact he doesn't have actual purple skin.
