** In ''Film/BlackPanther2018'', T'Challa has a new costume that ditches much of the silver detailing...except, as noted above, this makes it look ''more'' like his standard comics outfit.

** While Peter does wear his red-and-blue webs, the colors are a little darker and more muted than in the comics, likewise the film emphasizes thick black webline patterns covering all across the red part of his suit and over his face where in the comics the lines were thinner. Averted with the [[Comicbook/NormanOsborn Green Goblin]], his costume and suit is a full body bright emerald green with a mask with golden yellow lenses, this is far brighter than his comics look which has him dress in moss-green and dark purple with normal eyes. Notably the muted nature of Spider-Man's costume gets offset in the fights with the Goblin since the bright primary colors pops out during the action.

(Creator/AlexRoss designed concept art of a black and red costume that eventually showed up as an alternate skin in video games and was redesigned into the ''ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan'' suit.)

** ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' for the first time has Batman wear the black-and-gray suit; as well as black PoweredArmor, 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 darker.

Whenever a character is well defined by [[ClothesMakeTheLegend wearing bright and colorful clothing]], there is an increasing likelihood of a more modernized redesign that puts them into darker, if not outright black outfit. Also very popular is to give them a [[HellBentForLeather leather jacket]] or similar [[SpandexLatexOrLeather heavily texturized clothing]]. This isn't necessarily to make the characters DarkerAndEdgier, but because colorful costumes don't always translate well into seeming like practical combat outfits. As the name suggests, this is very common with the movie adaptation of a comic book, or live action material in general.

*** Wilson Fisk is fond of wearing black suits rather than white like he does in the comics; however, as the series progresses, his tendency to avert this trope becomes more prominent, with his final shot of the season showing him in all white.
*** Elektra in the show also wears black and burgundy-with-muted-black outfits instead of red.

* The colors on the live-action ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman'' costumes are pretty faithful, if a bit more muted than they were in the anime. However, Jun's costume is changed from white and pink to black and violet, while Joe's goes from burgundy and blue to black and deep blue.

* 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. Contrast this with his costume in [[Film/StreetFighter the previous movie]], which was about as accurate as it could get away with.
