* Sam, Clover and Alex from WesternAnimation/TotallySpies really aren't "spies" in the traditional sense--they wear [[HighlyVisibleNinja neon bright jumpsuits]] (even if they don't actually ''need'' to) on their missions; they rarely make any attempt to hide or disguise their identities; actual sneaking, while not uncommon, happens about as often as just barging headfirst into any objective.
** Many episodes have them going undercover at whatever location they're investigating wearing clothes that fit the location and, rarely, fake credentials if they can't get in by simply walking through the front door. They never actually hide their identity and often use their real first names as part of whatever fake identity they're using. It's only later once they break in to snoop around or after their cover is blown do they wear the highly visible suits.
** TheMovie reveals it was Clover who designed the outfits, before actually getting the gist of spying. To her credit, their current uniforms was the ''most stealthy'' she could come up with, as her previous ideas included a superhero-style suit (complete with a cape) and even a [[Franchise/SailorMoon Sailor Senshi]]-style outfit.

** ''Film/Logan'' features no costumes in the present day, but the comic books that Laura carries with her all depict the X-Men wearing tight, colorful outfits, since they're the actual X-Men comic books, which apparently exist in-universe, allege to show the "true" stories of the X-Men, and are dubiously accurate in terms of fashion and story content.

* According to Creator/KevinSmith, when writing ''[[WhatCouldHaveBeen Superman Lives]]'' one of the requests from producer JonPeters was that Superman should not wear his iconic costume, stating that it was "[[HeteronormativeCrusader too faggy]]."

* The SeekersOfTruth follow this convention, partly to avoid ghettoizing the story, and partly . . . well, because it's not easy to find a spandex tailor that won't talk.

* In ''Series/LoisAndClark,'' though Supes wears a shiny suit, he's the only one who does. Almost all the villains wear plain clothes and operate in a ''Series/{{Heroes}}''-ish 'real-world' manner. For example, instead of wearing a giant light bulb on his head and making dramatic crimes, Dr. Light was an ''optometrist'' and blinded Superman by using a ray of concentrated UV radiation to give Superman super-''cataracts.'' (You laugh, but he managed to inconvenience Supes ''way'' more than most villains.) The Prankster, instead of being the poor man's [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker Joker]], is a MagnificentBastard who went to the ''Film/DieHard'' school of villainy, his 'pranks' being the crimes that are a misdirection, his real purpose different (and pragmatic and down to Earth) and carried out efficiently. Mr. Mxyzptlk wears a Victorian England style getup as opposed to his orange and purple outfit from the comic. The Toyman was a toymaker fired from a toy company and put mind-altering gas in toys that spread around the city via... the toy store. Oh, and he's also [[TheJeffersons Sherman Hemsley]].

* Everyone in ''Webcomic/{{Superline}}'' is a broke high school student who doesn’t have the time, money, or skill to put together a fancy superhero costume, so they usually either fight in their marching band uniforms or regular street clothes.

* Perhaps in an attempt to capture the tone of the [[Film/XMen X-Men movies]], the entire second volume of ''ComicBook/NewMutants'' had the kids operating without any costumes. However, once the series was cancelled and relaunched as ''New X-Men: Academy X'', they all started wearing proper superhero uniforms.

* The graphic novel ''Comicbook/TheAvengers: Endless Wartime'', has {{Wolverine}} operating without any sort of costume, in order to make him more closely resemble his counterpart from the ''Film/XMen'' movies. The other Avengers ''do'' wear costumes, since their Comicbook/MarvelNOW outfits were explicitly designed to make them look more like their [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU]] counterparts.
