* Bushroot of ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' is another villainous example. Bushroot isn't even a supervillain name but his actual last name (Dr. Reginald Bushroot). After the mutation that gives him superpowers, he doesn't pursue some grand evil agenda but simply uses his new abilities to do unethical things to get what he wants.

** In ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', Zemo doesn't wear anything even remotely resembling a costume.


Added DiffLines:

** ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' has Shocker operating in street clothes, despite needing a special suit to protect himself from his gauntlets' kickback in the comics. Strangely, Hasbro's Shocker figure for the movie ''does'' have him wearing an MCU-style costume.

* An episode of ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}'' features a superhero. Actually, it was a regular guy using an artifact ([[CharlesAtlasSuperpower Charles Atlas's underpants]]) to alter density, mimicking superpowers.

* There are no costumes or tights of any sort in ''Series/JessicaJones2015'', which is set in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. However, this is justified since the three main superpowered characters featured in the show (Comicbook/JessicaJones, Comicbook/LukeCage, and the Purple Man) generally don't wear tights in the comics anymore either. There is one episode where Trish tries to get Jessica to wear a costume during a {{Flashback}}, but Jessica just mocks how silly and impractical it is.
* The original Creator/AdamWest ''Series/Batman'' was filled with spandex left and right, but it fell into this trope with the Riddler. Actor Frank Gorshin found the 60s era spandex costumes incredibly uncomfortable and would only agree to keep returning if the Riddler regularly (but not exclusively) wore something else. The production staff custom-made him a green and purple three-piece suit and bowler covered in question marks. This ended up becoming [[IconicOutfit the best known]] look of the character for decades.
* ''Series/IronFist2017'': Danny Rand never dons his green and yellow costume from the comics and wears some street clothes instead. The only thing that identifies him as the Iron Fist is his signature dragon tattoo on his chest. WordOfGod revealed that they couldn't come up with any reason for Danny to wear the costume as he is in the process of becoming the Iron Fist and Danny told several people including a psychiatrist about his role which render the whole SecretIdentity moot. However, his 1948 predecessor did wear the costume which could possibly mean that Danny might wear it in the near future once he embraced his role as the Iron Fist.
* ''Series/JessicaJones2015'': Trish tries to show off a costume Jessica could try for superheroing.

*''Series/LukeCage2016'': Luke doesn't wear costumes of any kind, but the equipment attached to him during the lifesaving experiment that gives him his superpowers looks exactly like the headband and gauntlets of his 1970s comic book costume. He even swipes a yellow shirt that's several sizes too small - tight around his arms and baring his chest - after he breaks out of Seagate. Seeing his reflection in a car window, he mutters, "You look like a damn fool." He later jokes about his outfit when recounting his escape.

-->'''Trish Walker:''' Superheroes wear costumes!
-->'''Jessica Jones:''' The only place anyone is wearing that is trick-or-treating, or as part of some kinky role-playing scenario.
-->'''Trish Walker:''' Well, this is just a mock-up. Ultimately, it's gonna be a lightweight, highly durable fabric, waterproof, flame resistant, and it will hide your identity.

* Late-game ''[[XCOMEnemyUnknown X-COM]]'' operatives can be genetically enhanced super-soldiers, master psychic powers, wear power armor that enables them to fly or move rapidly using a grappling hook, and be converted into walking cybernetic tanks, but generally still look and act like conventional military personnel.

* In ''{{Trigun}}'', Vash the Stampede is a HumanAlien who wears a [[BadassLongcoat futuristic red coat]], carries a [[HandCannon customized revolver]] and has superpowers. [[spoiler: And has a cyborg left arm with a minigun in it.]] Wolfwood is a BadassPreacher who carries a giant cross of massive destruction. TheyFightCrime!

** The 2016 ChristmasEpisode [[Recap/DoctorWho2016CSTheReturnOfDoctorMysterio "The Return of Doctor Mysterio"]] plays with this by having the Doctor team up with a Superman-style hero, The Ghost (an AscendedFanboy who accidentally gained comic book-style superpowers as a child) and comparing and contrasting their personalities and approaches to fighting evil. At one point, the Doctor complains that he'd warned the kid never to use his abilities in public, but his companion Nardole points out that the Doctor's people have a non-intervention policy when it comes to the rest of the universe.
** An ad campaign for Series 10, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=85&v=4YXvBPRgeyg collected in this supercut]], presents the Doctor in this way.
