** Meanwhile, ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' [[EverythingsBetterWithZippers has a disturbing number of zippers]]. And some insane belts. Just as an example, [=DiZ=] wears belts on his ''head''; one as a headband, and one as an eyepatch.

* [[SarcasmMode Famous auteur director]] TommyWiseau, director of TheRoom is known to wear more than one belt (occasionally asking fans to count them at midnight showings). In Greg Sestero's book he says that Wiseau does it because 'it feels good' and 'keeps his ass up.'

* While the characters in ''SpellForce'' generally don't do this, the woman on the loading screen is wearing several belts on her Stripperiffic battle bikini. Including a belt that could only be holding up ''her bikini bottom''.

** And then you get [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Ce1UyWRXIAAcBKJ.jpg this guy]]. Who is that? [=DEXDoruGoramon=], probably the closest thing the franchise has to a zombie. What's [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/digimon/images/0/0b/DexDorugoramon_b.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20150508030510 under the belts]]? Nothing but his soul. Those things are pretty much the only thing keeping him solid and not [[SealedEvilInACan DEXmon]].

** Emil, as the crew's DemolitionsExpert, always carries a bandolier bearing explosive charges on the field.

* 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?'
