* Lest you believe Japan's obsession with belts is a modern invention ([[OlderThanTheyThink it isn't]]), take a look at the ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obi_(sash) obi]]'' which dates back centuries. The highly visible GiantWaistRibbon that is the ''obi'' proper doesn't do a whole lot for actually keeping your kimono closed; it's just very pretty. The job of actually keeping you covered belongs to the ''datejime'', one or more belts worn under the obi (since they're not seen, even a Western-style belt can be used for this). Since ''kimono'' are worn in layers, and you need at least one ''datejime'' per layer, you're probably wearing multiple unseen belts. Then there's the ''obiage'', a little belt which peeks out the top of the ''obi'' and holds its bow up. Then there's the ''obijime'', an even smaller belt (sometimes nothing more than a thin cord) that helps hold the knot in place and is decorative. The ''obi'' system is basically a belt with belts that hides other belts.

* Hiei of ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' has four thin white belts underneath his cloak on his standard outfit. Not as many as some others, but just enough to let you know he's a NobleDemon {{Badass}}. He later stopped doing this, probably because it took an hour to go to the bathroom.

* In the mid 70s a reader of Magazine/TVGuide noticed that a cover illustration of Buddy Ebsen as ''Series/BarnabyJones'' had the detective (one would think mistakenly) drawn with both a belt and suspenders. As they wrote in a letter to the editor pointing out the error - 'How can I trust this man to catch a crook if he can't even trust his suspenders to keep his pants up?'

* Wrestling/SarahStock has set of ring gear that has five superfluous belts. Sometimes TagTeam partner Shantelle Taylor has a set that ''requires'' five belts to keep up and has two more around her boots just for show. Taylor also has variations that use buttons and such instead of belts.

* Every season of ''Super Sentai'' and Franchise/PowerRangers have belts on their spandex suits (which obviously aren't going anywhere). While the single waist belt is justified as holding a sidearm holster, sometimes they keep going with it, like in Engine Sentai Go-Onger/Power Rangers RPM, where the costumes (fitting into a racing theme) have [[http://www.freewebs.com/rpm-pr/go-onger-ranger-11.jpg seatbelts]] on them.
* KamenRider's TransformationTrinkets are almost always belts, which are worn ''over top'' of the ones they use to keep their pants up (and anything else that may hang down there, including jackets, vests, and ties - can't have anything obscuring those [[MerchandiseDriven expensive new toys they're selling!]])
