* Everything worn by anyone in LiquidSky.

* Then there's the absurdity sported by the title character of ''WildWorldOfBatwoman'', whose [[http://www.writeups.org/img/fiche/3627c.jpg costume]] resembles neither a bat, nor a woman. The actress actually made her own costume, although what she was taking at the time is a mystery to the ages.

* Some of the ''{{Pokemon}}'' protagonists have unusual combinations of clothing. The most prominent examples include Emerald!Brendan wearing shorts over pants (along with a hat that looks like white hair and a headband,) Lyra wearing a a hybrid of short shorts and overalls with a hoodie underneath it and a puffy hat, and HGSS!Ethan wearing a hoodie and a backwards hat with... early 20th century-style knickerbockers.

* Many male ''{{Pokemon}}'' characters wear very strange clothing combinations, like pieces of clothing designed for wildly different climates/temperatures mixed together (Gold's heavy sweatshirt and shorts, Lucas' winter scarf and skintight T-shirt in his original design) or highly unfashionable or ridiculous items thrown in an otherwise somewhat sensible outfit (Ethan's knickerbockers that would have been appropriate for a boy his age around eighty years ago but worn without stockings or even socks, Lucas' infamous beret, the ''thing'' on Brendan's head). Female characters, on the other hand, tend more towards {{Stripperific}}, [[AgeInappropriateDress on girls]] ''[[AgeInappropriateDress far]]'' [[AgeInappropriateDress too young to be wearing such things.]] Player characters aren't limited to this, however; Brycen wears what looks like half of a kimono, a mask, and slip-on shoes.
** In the case of Gold, his outfit is a real fashion native to the [[TheOtherRainforest Pacific Northwest]] where late spring and fall is warm enough for shorts but too rainy for T-shirts, so people usually go in shorts and sweatshirts. So {{averted}} for Gold and Red (who just wears jeans and a T-shirt with a short-sleeved coat).
** The winner though is Ghetsis in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite''. You simply cannot trust a guy who dresses in what could be a hideously ugly curtain and a ''castle turret''. A ''too-short'' hideous curtain, no less. Something that tacky would have to have been custom-made for him, so why didn't he get it in the right size to fit him and not leave his (equally-garish) bathroom slippers showing?! [[spoiler: His outfit in ''Black 2'' and ''White 2'' isn't much better design-wise... but at least it fits correctly.]]

* In ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan'', Khan and his followers wear outfits made out of whatever they could cannibalize from their spaceship ''Botany Bay'' after nearly 15 years of isolation.

Added DiffLines:

* People with schizotypal personality disorder are often real life examples of this, but how tends to differ. Some wear clothing that simply doesn't fit well together, with a mixture of formal and informal clothing in everyday settings being common. Others tend to wear clothing inappropriate to the time of year, with people wearing wool mittens and hats in the middle of June being an indicator of this. For others, a mixture of carelessness and a genuine inability to gauge how they look leads to them wearing incredibly dirty or ill-fitting clothing. This is also common in people with autism and other personality disorders, but is a hallmark of schizotypal.

** Naruto's safety-orange hued jacket and pants certainly [[HighlyVisibleNinja stands out]]. On the few occasions where Naruto isn't wearing his jacket you can see he has some sort of layer of chainmail under it, which explains having something so loose if not the color. By the time of the second series he abandons the goofy looking orange jumpsuit in favor of a slightly less goofy looking orange jumpsuit.

On the few occasions where Naruto isn't wearing his jacket you can see he has some sort of layer of chainmail under it, which explains having something so loose if not the color. By the time of the second series he abandons the goofy looking orange jumpsuit and blue jacket in favor of a slightly less goofy looking orange jumpsuit.and black jacket. A the most curious part is that it is shown in the manga that many people in the village wear orange just like him.

* Chrono from ''ChronoCrusade'' has an outfit that at first glance seems distinctly anime, but when he takes off his coat it's apparent that he's wearing what would be a normal outfit for a young boy living in New York during the 1920's -- as long as you ignore the [[BringMyRedJacket bright red color]] of his shorts, anyway.

* Raikou Shimizu of ''NabariNoOu'' is a triumphant example, sporting a sleeveless... jean-jacket... thing in combination with black hakama and colorful bracelets (plus pink hair and a huge number of talismans...) And it gets [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/WAAAAT_1901.png worse]] when he's stressed out.

* In contrast to the [[SharpDressedMan well tailored and crisp]] casual clothes he wore in ''{{VideoGame/Persona 3}}'', in ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena,'' Akihiko Sanada promptly ditches them for a dark red, ragged cape, torn pants, and shiny red boots, and [[WalkingShirtlessScene he's otherwise topless the entire time]]. Everyone pointing out the absurdity of his outfit and him failing to see how absurd it looks is a RunningGag that pops up in both ''Arena'' games. Apparently, [[AllInTheManual the cape and half nudity weren't originally going to be the case]]; [[WhatCouldHaveBeen according to the character artist]], Akihiko was originally supposed to retain his sharp looks with a suit (giving him a look similar to his appearance in the non-canon ''Anime/PersonaTrinitySoul'' anime), but was given the outfit he got after Wada, ''Arena's'' designer, wanted a "rugged" looking character in the roster, and no one else could properly fit the role.

* ''WebComic/GirlGenius'' has this pop up regularly. Considering most of the time it happens, people are, in fact, ''scrounging'' for clothing (Tarvek's outfit in the Castle Heterodyne arc makes sense since he started off ''only wearing a bedsheet and boots''; the outfit he ended up with is thus a major improvement) due to the crazy situations they are in.
