* ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' v4 has Maria Santiago, who still wears her uniform from her old school at Bayview (which, for the record, does not have uniforms).

* In MyChemicalRomance's "I'm Not Okay" video, they wore school uniforms. Literally, the new black, because otherwise, those dudes wear a lot of black.

During a BeachEpisode, the most strait-laced female member of the cast will typically be depicted wearing a [[SchoolSwimsuit school-issue swimsuit]] rather than a more daring bikini. Of course, [[GenreSavvy there are]] [[LuckyStar exceptions]] to the rule.

* [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in ''Anime/KillLaKill'' since Ryuko's literally only outfit is her living weapon/school uniform Senketsu. The outfit she was wearing before she found him got shredded when she put him on. Also justified in that Senketsu is [[Spoiler: One of her only friends.]]

* Maka of ''Manga/SoulEater'' is almost always seen wearing some kind of school uniform - be it at school itself, when out on missions (coupled with her signature [[BadassLongcoat black longcoat]]) or just hanging out. [[spoiler: She also gets a much snazzier new choice of uniform when Spartoi is formed.]] Explained in ''Manga/SoulEaterNot''. There is a very liberal attitude to uniform at Shibusen, and students can wear whatever they want, but it is a fashion of sorts to design your own school-uniform-type outfit and wear that every day.

Given the potentially abrupt and far-ranging nature of school activities, it may also be convenient for students to be able to plausibly argue to random authorities they ''are'' students, which would somewhat justify a policy aimed at encouraging them to "look like they could be with the DWMA" at all times.



** Kotarou, who mentioned that his school uniform is his fighting outfit.

* The cast from ''VideoGame/SenranKagura'' wear their school uniforms wherever they go (unless you change their costumes), even when being on a mission, unless they activate Shinobi Transformation... besides Homura, whose transformation is to just wear wrist guards with her school uniform. [[spoiler:She and the rest of her group change to different set of casual costumes, with Homura gaining a new Shinobi Transformation costume, once they abandon their school.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Later this becomes extremely prevalent in [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable Part 4]], where the large majority of the characters are highschoolers, and almost never take off their [[CustomUniform Custom Uniforms]]. The only real exceptions from under this rule are [[NiceGuy Koichi]] and [[{{Yandere}} Yukako,]] who wear casual street outfits on several occasions, but the rest of the cast are repeat offenders of this trope. In particular, [[TheHero Josuke]] doesn't even take his uniform off at home, which earned him a [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] by his mom.

** Justified (or at least Hand Waved) in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' where the Investigation Team wear their uniforms as a means of concealing their activities. Since the safest entrance[[note]]Technically they could use any TV to enter that world, but it is ''very'' dangerous to do so since there's no way to tell where they might wind up if they did that, and the TV world is not a safe place to wander around in[[/note]] to the TV World lies within the local department store, they can't exactly carry their weapons and armor out in the open (in fact, Youske and the Protagonist got arrested for doing just that). They come up with the solution to use their school gear to smuggle it in, and to avoid unwanted attention. Of course, the uniforms are still very stylish.

* A slight variation in ''Series/{{Glee}}'' is the [[{{All Guys Want Cheerleaders}} cheerleaders]] wearing their uniforms all day every day. At many high schools, cheerleaders wear their uniforms to classes on game days, but not other days, and not outside of school.

* ''{{Outnumbered}}'' zigzags this. It depends on what day of the week it is.

* ''RaidouKuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy'': Raidou always wears his school uniform, even when going out and fighting demons. What's that? In the {{Yakuza}}-run bath house, he's naked and thus does ''not'' wear the uniform? Heh, nope. [[NiceHat He keeps the hat.]] So he's always wearing at least a ''piece'' of the uniform.

* Alyssa in ''ClockTower3'' wears a school uniform through most of the game. She has alternate costumes, but they're a little [[{{Stripperific}} creepy]]. Especially for a 14 year old.
