* In the [[HeroSystem Ninja Hero]] adventure Ninja Mountain, the [=PCs=] at one point must penetrate a "training compound" for ninjas, which is really just a rip-off school and naturally features these. The text notes that the stealth training is remarkably effective: if you can sneak around in a light forest wearing a day-glow "ninja outfit" you can sneak around anywhere.

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': Ork kommandoz are seven-foot-tall green killing machines belonging to a species who's first, last and favorite strategy involves running straight at the enemy while yelling and shooting. And yet, kommandoz actually manage to stay sneaky long enough to plant bombs or jump out of hiding to resume the aforementioned chopping, yelling and shooting. As orks hold colors to hold special properties (black is tougher, blue is lucky, RedOnesGoFaster) fanon holds that they paint themselves lurid colors like purple and orange for maximum sneakiness. Why? Well, have ''you'' ever seen a purple-and-orange-painted ork? Of course not: ''[[InsaneTrollLogic that's how sneaky it makes them.]]''

* Despite his [[HighlyVisibleNinja bright orange outfit and loud personality]], Manga/{{Naruto}} can be pretty darn stealthy when he wants to be. A couple of [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation different takes on Naruto himself]] give his reasons as wearing his "Safety Orange" outfit as either stealth training or it was the only thing he could get to wear.
** Post-TimeSkip, Naruto does incorporate a large amount of black into his outfit, like a ninja should. Based on his recent proclamation to [[spoiler: Kushina]] it seems he chooses orange just because he likes it.

*** Breaking into the Hokage tower and stealing a top-secret document with only one person discovering him by accident.
*** Even more notable in that the one person was the Hokage himself and Naruto took him out of action with a [[DistractedByTheSexy Sexy No Jutsu]]. He took out the leader of his village and its most powerful ninja... why is he considered "dead last" again?

*** Using one of his clones playing unconsciousness and hiding the hole when he hides himself under the ground, and then defeats Neji with a surprise upper cut from the ground.
** It should also be noted that considering how an average person dresses in the Naruto-verse, an orange jumpsuit is infinitely better for blending into a crowd than a black stagehand uniform. It may well be that the standard ninja strategy is to just look like normal civilians once their take their headbands off.

Technically speaking, it is possible for someone not trained as a ninja to be so stealthy they're unnoticeable even in garish colors, but it is rarer.

These ninja don't quite get 'camouflage means colors that blend in'. They wear bright, obvious outfits, and common sense dictates that they shouldn't be stealthy ''at all''. And yet... they are. They rarely use any magical powers, AppliedPhlebotinum, or other fiction-specific cheats. They're just that good, and are skilled enough that sneaking around that however [[HighlyVisibleNinja highly visible]] they might ''appear'' to be, in practice they're extremely hard to spot and harder to catch.

** Franchise/SpiderMan comes close because of NoPeripheralVision and the fact that he's got [[SuperReflexes faster reflexes]] than normal humans. Apparently no one in the Franchise/MarvelUniverse ever looks up (which is an important point made in the superhero comic invincible that heroes have a tendency to move above the populace who never look up but often look up themselves which separates them from the average civilian).

*** Nightcrawler, whose costume is largely red and white, turns invisible (except for his eyes) in shadow, and can Wall Crawl like Spider-Man. As long as he doesn't teleport and give himself away, he's super stealthy. (He does have a "secondary mutation" of camouflaging while wearing a suit of unstable molecules. But this is never mentioned.)

* The Sheikah of ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' are typically portrayed from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' onward as wearing a bright purple outfit, while the [[EvilCounterpart Yiga Clan]] in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'' are shown wearing [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver crimson outfits with black highlights]]. But they both have various magical techniques to keep out of sight, while the purple Stealth Armor from ''Breath of the Wild'' is stated to be specifically designed to reduce the sound one makes rather than one's visibility.
