* A variation on this is what happens to Jun Manjyome in ''Anime/YuGiOhGX''. He's demoted to Ra Yellow, and decides to leave Duel Academy. After a rather long journey he comes back, but since he went to another school he counts as a transfer student and has to start in Osiris Red dorm. Rather than wearing the red outfit, Manjyome wears his own black coat.

* Kino Makoto in ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' wears an old school uniform throughout her entire junior high career and only switches over in high school. This is technically not so much due to lack of integration in the cast as the school not having one in [[HugeSchoolgirl her size]], but it does mirror the fact that, outside of the senshi, Makoto was an outcast in junior high due to her height. Her school uniform had elements (long skirt, type of shoes) that were typically associated with a kind of young female delinquents, sukeban, that were prominent in during 70s-80s Japan. Indeed in early designs, Makoto was supposed to lead a gang of girls, and though she didn't she was still stereotyped this way by others. This lengthened skirt does not appear in the [[Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon live-action series]] as the sukeban wasn't as prominent anymore.

* A variation in the ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' sound novels. The school doesn't have set uniforms but Shion's uniform is noticeably different from everyone else's, since she sports a uniform that looks more like other schools. It's changed in the remakes and most adaptations though.


Added DiffLines:

* Nitori from ''Manga/WanderingSon'' is mistaken for a transfer student when she decides to wear a SailorFuku to school.

* The school in ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' doesn't have set uniforms however Shion's uniform is noticeably different from everyone elses when she transfers. It's changed in the remakes and most adaptations though.

* Haruhi Fujioka is too poor to buy a new school uniform when she first goes to [[OuranHighSchoolHostClub Ouran High]], even wearing a boy's uniform because her self-consciousness of her gender isn't as much as that of other people's and because the general format (shirt and pants) was easier to mimic with the clothing she had already.

* Utena's "boy uniform" in the ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' TV anime, which includes bright red bicycle shorts, is not worn by any of the boys at her school, but is, according to the plot, an approved style (she helpfully points it out at the very beginning - there's nothing at the school dress code that bars her from wearing the male uniform). One wonders [[{{Stripperiffic}} who approved it]] and if it has ever been worn by any boy in the history of the school.

** Note that [[RanmaOneHalf Ranma]] is ''the only character in the series'' to never, ''ever'', wear a school uniform, unless it's the female kind in order to pull a prank on Ryoga or fool Kuno for some obscure purpose --in which case, it's always treated as a WigDressAccent PaperThinDisguise. Ironically, the first thing that the majority of {{FanFic}}s that deal with a split or locked female Ranma do is shove her into a school uniform, ignoring the entire manga.

* Mendou from ''UruseiYatsura'' wears a different (all-white) school uniform not because he transferred in, but because he's a [[ShelteredAristocrat rich, arrogant bastard]] and he thinks it makes him look important.

Added DiffLines:

* Tsugumi in ''Manga/{{Nisekoi}}'' wears a completely different outfit. As Tsugumi was privately tutored beforehand, it isn't known if it's meant to be a uniform or just personal clothes. Later, when Marika transfers in, she retains her old uniform from her previous school.

* Joan from ''ComicBook/AmeliaRules'' has attended a Catholic school all her life, before being transferred to public school. She wears her uniform without even thinking about it, and doesn't really notice until Amelia and Rhonda point it out to her. Joan is highly embarrassed, and hopes that she can just wear normal clothes and everyone will forget about it, but as Amelia and Rhonda tell her, it's middle school -- everyone remembers whatever embarrassing thing you did. Joan just rolls with it and wears her uniform every day. "I'm thinking of making it a trademark."

* A-Ko and C-Ko wore their old uniforms pretty much all through the first ''ProjectAKo'', but finally changed to the school uniforms in the epilogue.
* Kaere/Kaede from ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'', along with being the only character with a different hair color, is also the only girl in class (excluding Matoi) whose uniform is different than anyone else's -- she sports a plaid miniskirt, blazer and tie in lieu of the SailorFuku every other girl wears.
* In ''MahouSenseiNegima,'' Student #1: Sayo Aisaka, wears a rather different uniform from the other students. When this is initially noticed in the class register, it leads to the assumption that she's a transfer student who never actually got there... but of course, the truth is that she's a ghost, and the uniform she wears was the standard at the time of her death - 60 years earlier.
* Itsuki in ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya]]'' [[LampshadeHanging hangs a lampshade]] on this trope: the fact that he appears in North High's uniform from the beginning is a subtle hint at his transfer being deliberately pre-planned so he could better observe Haruhi.

* Himari from ''OmamoriHimari'' keeps her "old" school uniform (or at least a different one) to warn demons who plan to attack Yuuto that she is there to defend him.

** The trailer of ''Rebuild 3.0'' shows her in the same uniform while confronting Mari (do note, though, that [[TrailersAlwaysLie none of that actually happens]] in ''3.0''; everything shown in the trailer was [[AbortedArc unceremoniously scrapped]] when the movie was rewritten during development).

** In the recent spin-of manga ''NeonGenesisEvangelionGakuenDatenroku'', Kaoru is presented as a transfer student who has his own uniform. Much like Rei, he wears it at all times.

* Done by This Trope when his daughter left a religious school to go to public school. The uniforms are expensive, decent quality, and they're adorable on the kindergartners.
