* [[TheEmpire Peacekeeper]] uniforms in ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' varied an awful lot from episode to episode, partly because the production team themselves were never really satisfied with any of the designs. By the end of the show, the rule, especially for officers, seemed to be "any vaguely military-looking ensemble at all as long as it's [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver red and black]] and [[HellBentForLeather mostly leather]]".

* The Dogs of war in CryHavoc all wear customized versions of the same basic uniform. This is explained away by their jobs as mercenaries who chose their own gear.

* Members of the GreenLanternCorps are allowed to customize their uniform pretty much however they choose so long as they keep the green-black-white color scheme and the Lantern badge is clearly visible. This is more or less necessary, since while many Lanterns are at least ''approximately'' humanoid, not all of them are. Mogo is probably the most extreme example; as a sentient planet, his "uniform" is green foliage growing in a "belt" pattern with the Lantern logo around his equatorial region.

** ''VideoGame/{{Persona5}}'' takes it further; Ryuji wears a FunTShirt under his open blazer, Anzu wears a long hoodie under her blazer and red tights, and Makoto and Haru don't wear blazers at all (Makoto wears a black WaistcoatOfStyle, while Haru wears a pink sweater).

* In ''Manga/WanderingSon'', a girl, Chizuru, wears the boys' uniform to her middle school's opening ceremony. She tends to do this kind of thing on a whim, and later wears the boy's necktie instead of the girl's ribbon on her uniform. Yoshino (who is a trans boy) struggles over whether to do this himself and eventually starts wearing the necktie also. For a while he wears [[spoiler:sports the male Summer uniform, before changing back to female gear after his (trans girl) friend goes to school dressed in a SailorFuku]]

* The Guardians of ''ShugoChara'' wear mantles on their shoulders, though this isn't out of rebellion but rather a symbol of their status. Amu, on the other hand, tends to wear her uniform in a slightly more disheveled fashion. Jacket unbuttoned, shirt un-tucked, and belt with a fanny pack on over the shirt. The fanny pack, used to keep Amu's Guardian Character Eggs, was added after she joined the Guardians.

* In ''Manga/GAGeijutsukaArtDesignClass'', [[TheFashionista Nodamiki]] ''always'' wears the school tracksuit instead of the blazer, even there's no P.E.. On the other hand, [[{{Bokukko}} Tomokane]] always unbuttons her collar and often removes the ribbon tie, something that leads to ViewerGenderConfusion. OK, she still wears the skirts...

* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' as a whole deserves a mention. While the Sailor Suits they wear as senshi all share the same base design, at the start they can have different boots, earrings, shoulder pad styles, gloves, choker accessories, brooch and color schemes. As time passes Moon's outfit grows more different while everyone's grows more uniform to the point the only difference is color scheme. Chibi-Moon bounces back and fourth, her first two uniforms are more like Moon's but her final one is the same as everyone but Moon. It should be noted that the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]] doesn't get as uniform as the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] as the 3rd version doesn't appear aside from Moon's version of it.

* Rin Tezuka of ''KatawaShoujo'' doesn't have arms and does everything with her feet. Obviously, she would have [[PantyShot certain problems]] with a skirt, so she wears the boys' uniform. Miki Miura also wears a boys' shirt, because she considers the girls' blouse constricting.

[[WhatCouldHaveBeen Early concept art]] shows she originally wore a skirt but with shorts underneath. Miki Miura also wears a boys' shirt, because she considers the girls' blouse constricting.



* In ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'', many of the members of [[TheSquad Squad 7]] had some variation on their uniform. This ''would'' be avoided by Welkin, who wore his commander's uniform exactly as it was meant to be worn, except he is the ''only'' person who doesn't have a uniform variation and therefore stands out because of it.
** In the game's artbook, the character designer refers to this trope (from his end at least) as a "believable lie": How to give characters distinctive appearances while maintaining some semblance of military decorum.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': when Aang goes to [[spoiler:a fire nation school]] in season 3, he wears a headband to cover his arrow (explained as covering a scar), because they stole the clothes from someone's clothesline, not realizing it was a school uniform. More subtly, he is the only one not wearing a belt--because said "headband" is actually meant to be the uniform's belt. This seems to work against him when he gets into trouble and the teachers look for the headband to find him in a crowd, but then it's revealed that, in a show of support, all the other students are wear their belts as headbands as well, making finding him impossible.

* Yusuke of ''YuYuHakusho'' deliberately chooses to wear a green version of his school's uniform in direct violation of the dress code. He claims it looks better on him than the blue version.

->''"The sight of these troops, this army with a thousand costumes, fulfilled to the hilt our General's oldest idea of war which is that every man should dress as he pleases if he is going into battle, for that is his right, and variety never hurts the zest of the hardiest workers in every batallion."''
