** Romana ([[TheNthDoctor both of her]]) changed outfits every episode, it stood out more than for most companions since her outfits were highly memorable, ranging from white furs, a pink and white version of the Fourth Doctor's costume, fox hunting gear, an Edwardian bathing suit and what Nev Fountain described as his grandfather's gamekeepers outfit to name just a few.

* The {{Sliders}} seemed to have new wardrobe (and always plenty of money) every week, despite only ever taking one change of clothes through the wormholes between worlds. There were occasional attempts to [[HandWave explain this]] (alternate versions of the sliders have the same ATM PIN), but it still strained [[WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief credibility]] to have every cast member show up with a whole new ensemble each week, especially since this would happen even with episodes that were set immediately after each other, leading one online fan to ask the question "what really goes on in that wormhole??"
* While all of the other castaways in ''GilligansIsland'' had to make do with a LimitedWardrobe or a few token outfits, the Howells dressed as though they had a bottomless clothes chest. One has to wonder just what they were ''doing'' taking all that clothing on what was ostensibly a three hour tour. (Not only did they have several outfits each, but they had costumes, wigs, enough fabric to make long door curtains, and large bundles of cash in varying denominations.) Additionally, the castaways as a whole even had enough spare clothing amongst them to sew together to make a ''theater curtain''.

* The cast and crew of ''NewsRadio'' viewed Kathy Griffin's character on ''SuddenlySusan'' as a knock-off of their character Beth. Thus Beth would always wear lots of wacky one-of-a-kind clothes in an effort to make her inimitable.

* The characters in ''Manga/WanderingSon'' don't wear the same clothes too often. The manga takes place over several years which only increases the amount of clothing.



* [[Franchise/ArchieComics Betty and Veronica]] are classic examples of this trope. It's also one of the rare instances when the Unlimited Wardrobe is {{justified|Trope}} for both girls. Veronica obviously has the money to buy whatever clothes she wants...and as for Betty, in some stories she's developed an impressive wardrobe of her own because Veronica just hands off any clothes she gets tired of to Betty. Not that Betty necessarily minds, since Veronica's generosity allows her to keep up with Ronnie in fashion despite her much more limited finances.
** ''ComicBook/KatyKeene'' has had so many outfits, that Veronica once celebrated finally owning more outfits (although Katy still modeled far more).

* The mysterious, heroic senator who first appears in ''Comicbook/TheTransformersIDW''. He changes his color scheme every time he appears. This highlights his rather eccentric personality in contrast to the other senators and conceals his true identity from the reader.
** In general, the titular robots tend to change bodies every few years. Megatron is especially guilty of this.

* As with the cartoon, ''ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms'' fits [[http://www.rockjem.com/comicfashions.html heavily]]. The series is based on a cartoon made to promote fashion dolls after all. The characters are always changing outfits and, unlike the source, change hairstyles and makeup. Pizzazz, for example, starts the series with a giant mohawk but wears her hair down when dressed casually. Between the start of issue 6 and the end she buzzed the remainder of her hair off. In the next issue her mohawk is back.

* ''ComicBook/JosieAndThePussycats'' started out as a DistaffCounterpart to ''Franchise/ArchieComics'', so obviously this trope was in action. Prior to the {{retool}} the characters had an ever-revolving closet door.

* ''Franchise/StarWars''. Two words: Padme Amidala. Wookieepedia even has a [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Padme_Amidala%27s_wardrobe separate article]] for that. Justified because she's the queen of Naboo, later a senator representing at least a system, if not a sector. Between the hair and the outfits, she's a wonderful challenge for female ([[DragQueen or male]]) cosplayers.

* ''Franchise/StarWars''. Many of Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon female leads will inevitably have a huge number of outfits for them to wear, but only some of them end up in their debut films. The ''Franchise/DisneyPrincess'' franchise only increased the amount of outfits the characters wear in extended media.
* Anya in ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}'' doesn't have a different dress for every scene she's in, but she does go through far more costume changes than the average animated heroine (in order, she has a tattered peasant dress, a yellow ball gown in a dream sequence, a plain blue dress, a pair of blue pajamas, a purple flapper-esque dress, a blue dress similar to the purple flapper getup, yet another 20s-style dress [these last three all show up within the ''same musical number''], a tight-fitting purple evening gown with [[PrettyInMink fur coat]], a pair of midriff-baring pink pajamas, and finally a cream-yellow court dress). Most animated films give their female leads two, maybe three outfits at most!

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': In contrast to the decidedly limited wardrobe of the Doctor, most of his companions wore different outfits in each serial. In the 2000s series, Rose Tyler is often seen coming home from time-travelling with a basket full of laundry for her mother to do.

* Maybe the ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' girls had a magic wardrobe-replenishing spell- they wore different clothes every. single. freaking. episode. Most of them, other than Holly Marie Comb's, were also of the extremely {{Fanservic|e}}y variety.
** This was also lampshaded in one episode, which had Alyssa Milano exclaim, "I'm going to go change--I've been wearing this outfit for almost an ''hour!''" You'd really have to be insane to raid Phoebe's closet, especially in the later seasons.

** Disney Channel loves doing this in their live-action shows.
*** Of note is the limitless supply of eccentric and fanciful outfits worn by Alex Russo's best friend Harper Finkle in ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace''.
* On ''UglyBetty'', the title character seems to have an unlimited supply of bizarrely dorky outfits, despite her lower-middle class background.

** Hanna has once been seen reusing a jacket, but other than that there is very little of people wearing the same outfit.

* Joan from ''Series/{{Elementary}}'' apparently has a pretty large wardrobe. She wears different outfits constantly, to the point where at least one fan-blog documents her fashion.

* Mabel of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' seems to have an infinite amount of custom sweaters, and wears a different one every episode, and sometimes more than one in the same episode.
** Justified since Mabel knits the sweaters herself. Apparently she just owns a lot of yarn.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' was created to sell fashion dolls so this is extremely apparent. It's right there in the theme song: "''Glammer and glitter, fashion and fame''". There are even [[http://www.rockjem.com/cartoonfashions.html fansites]] dedicated to cataloging everyones attire. The only thing that really stays consistent is their make-up. We only see a Misfit without it once; Roxy briefly during a makeover montage in "Roxy Rumbles". The hairstyles are usually stationary but do occasionally change, like when Kimber had her hair in pigtails during the song "Bad Influence".
** It's unintentional however several characters did change hairstyles due to EarlyInstallmentWeirdness. Video had straight hair but later has wavy hair and Clash had red-and-blue hair until they {{retcon}}ned her into having purple hair like her doll.

* Although it seems impossible, ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' combined this trope with LimitedWardrobe. Even though he was stranded in the future, a future where nobody remembered his home time, Jack managed to keep finding new kimonos to replace the ones subject to ClothingDamage in previous episodes... He must have found a ''very'' cheap clothing store on his first day there.
** There was an episode dedicated to Jack losing his trademark sandals, and trying out new shoes given to him by the owner of a post-apocalyptic "Foot Locker" until he finds a kindly old Japanese man who makes him a new pair. The episode began with Jack making a new hat for himself out of straw. Given Jack's variety of skills, he probably knows how to make a new set of his simple robes with whatever materials he can find.

* As is the norm with Barbie, she has this in ''BarbieLifeInTheDreamhouse''. In fact it's exaggerated to the extremes. She owns thousands of articles of clothing in her absurdly huge closet. One episode has her finally running out of room and having trouble getting rid of her clothes because she has such good memories of everything. The person she tries to sell her clothes to is a ShoutOut to collectors, down to them wanting everything in the original boxes.
