* No such luck with ''VideoGame/{{Torchlight}}''. Because equipment is randomized and stats can vary wildly even within the same class of equipment, picking the pieces that are most suited to your build can end up with a bewildering and mismatched collection of clothes and gear, as you have no less than 10 item slots and 4 weapon slots to juggle. You can gain set bonuses if you manage to put together a full outfit, but good luck accomplishing that, with drop rates and the lack of enemy respawns being what they are.

*** Also one of the more useful schools for permanent enchantments is transmutation, so have fun glowing purple at people

* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' and ''VideoGame/DarkSouls2'' allow you to mix-and-match armor parts to maximize your stats. Some of the armor combinations can look pretty goofy. Designing a mixed armor set that is actually meant to look {{Badass}}, [[RuleOfCool cool]], or [[RuleOfFunny intentionally hilarious]] is termed "Fashion Souls" by the community, and is a popular pastime among some players.

As time has gone on, Fashion Souls has evolved among some players from a practice to a playstyle, on the logic that if you're truly skilled at Souls games you can forgo stat optimization entirely and focus only on style.

* While none of it's seen in-game, ''VideoGame/SuperheroLeagueofHoboken'' decks out your party members in a bizarre and mismatched set of pieces of armor almost by default, like the Concrete Mortarboard, Deflector Undies, Teflon Jockstrap and Beat Up Tennis Shoes. Given the parodical nature of the game, this is obviously deliberate.

** The armor's a punchline on Ashley, too, since [[NoCutsceneInventoryInertia she's always wearing it]] whenever she's holding the DistressBall, and its in-game stats are so awful that the first thing most players do when they recruit her is give her something better.
** Players in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'''s multiplayer are allowed to color their armor as they see fit. Some players invoke this trope and paint themselves in clown colors because it's funny, but Geth players are ''very likely'' to do it -- they look like enemy units, and in a pitched firefight they don't want their allies wasting bullets or special abilities against them. So they paint themselves, say, hot pink, just to stand out.

** ''GuildWars'', however, is far more restrictive, as armor pieces typically have a dye attached to them already. Dye does not unlock a palette to be applied at will, and must be purchased and applied to each and every piece. For typical colors this is no problem, as those dye colors tend to be cheap, running a little higher if you need to buy several to mix and match for a certain hue- but be prepared to pay through the ''nose'' if you intend to add black or white dye to your ensemble, as during the height of the game's popularity such dyes were rarely sold for under 9 platinum pieces.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Tekken 6]]'' can end up like this in its Scenario Campaign, due to various clothes you can [[AndYourRewardIsClothes find]] giving you special boosts. Though, this does vary character to character, as one characters clothing sets can end up mixing a lot better than anothers.

** ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' is a bit better about this two ways. First, armor is nor split into Head, Torso, Left Arm, Right Arm, and Bottoms, along with being more consistently designed in general, leading to less jarring combinations when mixed and matched. Secondly, every now has "Fashion Armor" equipment slots, which take priority over anything else visually but don't affect stats at all.

** ''[[KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep Birth by Sleep]]'' arguably has the worst case of this: one of the most powerful Keyblades you can obtain is the [[http://www.khwiki.com/Sweetstack Sweetstack]], which is basically a LethalJokeItem made entirely out of ''[[EdibleBludgeon ice cream.]]''
