** At first, she wears other outfits when travelling to the past, but after the first two or three volumes, Takahashi apparently decided, "Nope, it's gotta be the uniform." Kagome continues to occasionally wear other outfits in the present, but after the early episodes, it's always the uniform when she's time-travelling.



* Himari from ''Manga/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.

It's implied that it's actually a fake; Himari does not appear to have ever gone to school before and Rinko doesn't recognize it despite having seen a broad range of uniforms at atheletic meets.

* Noriaki Kakyoin in ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders'' introduces himself as a recent transfer student - made apparent by his dark green uniform in contrast to the school's black uniform. Whether or not he was actually a transfer student and wasn't just saying that to [[spoiler: avert Jotaro's suspicion until he was prepared to attack him later in the day]] is unknown.

* In ''Anime/DigimonAdventureTri'', Mimi and Meiko transfer to Tsukishima High School where Taichi, Yamato, Sora and Koushirou are already in. While Mimi already has the school's school uniform (and given that she never wore a school uniform before thanks to spending her entire middle school life in the US, it was necessary for her to get it early), Meiko doesn't get hers yet and she has to wear her old uniform during ''Reunion''. It symbolizes how Mimi is already part of the group, while Meiko is still and outsider at that point. When she joins the group at the end of the movie, she gets her new uniform between ''Reunion'' and ''Determination'', symbolizing her integration.

* Averted in the various ''PrettyCure'' series - none of the human transfer student girls are seen wearing (or even ''having'') their previous school's uniforms. [[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Setsuna]], [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Ellen]], [[Anime/DokiDokiPrettyCure Makoto]] and [[Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure Hime]] get a pass as they were from other worlds.

* There was an argument behind the scenes of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' as to whether the Maquis crew members should wear Starfleet uniforms or keep their outlaw garb. Ron Moore was pushing for the latter, but the former made more sense plotwise (why foster division when the crews are going to have to cooperate?), so they went with it. However, the Maquis crew did have special rank insignia since they weren't really officers.

* Makoto Kino in ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' wears an old school uniform throughout her entire middle school 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 middle 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.

* In ''LightNovel/DuRaRaRa'', [[http://dinosbacsi.tumblr.com/post/108365622936/best-introduction-1010 Mairu]] [[spoiler: Orihara]] goes to a school with blazer uniforms... but she wears her old SailorFuku.
* In a {{filler}} two-part episode of ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', Tamanosuke Itou arrives to Ran and Sonoko's class wearing his old ''gakuran'' rather than the school's blazer uniform.

* ''Film/TheKarateKid2010'' has a variation with Dre wearing the proper school uniform to his first day at school in Beijing. However, he and his mom didn't realize that Chinese public schools only use the uniform on designated "uniform days" (this was not one of those days) or on field trips, so he ends up looking like a stupid foreigner, further cementing the racist bullying he suffers from some of his classmates.

* Before coming to Australia following his parents' divorce, Michael Hutchence of INXS attended a private school in Hong Kong, and wore that uniform after relocating to Australia with his mother. He got beaten up his first day of school for being an "outsider", but a couple of other students came to his rescue. One of them was his future bandmate, Andrew Farriss.
