Often misuses for equipment that is just ugly,: Rainbow Pimp Gear get usage counts

- The blue outfit in The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past. The red one is not that disastrous, but still weird compared to the green tunic.
- The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion
- The strongest armour sets (Daedric and Glass) in both categories (heavy and light respectively) look incredibly ugly. Daedric armour basically looks like a suit welded together from mismatched pieces of metal in various states of rust, with no concern for fitting together, and with added spikes, while Glass has a radioactive green glow. Tragic since the last game, Morrowind had both of these sets look presentable, if not incredibly badass.
- And, while not as garish as most examples, both games have the Bloodworm Helm and the Helm of Oreyn Bearclaw. Both helmets resemble giant dinosaur skulls, which would be rather neat, had the jaws not been open and your character's face peeking out. The fact that they make your head look too big for your body doesn't help.
- The amber and madness armors as well as the golden saint and dark seducer armors from the Shivering Isle expansion are not much of an improvement either. You can avoid this by using the mage guild enchantment laboratory to give your armor a combined chameleon rating of slightly over 100%, so you do not have to look at it (not to mention the rather amusing reactions enemies seem to have when they are hit. Hooray for infinite sneak attacks.)
- Mass Effect
- Played straight with the "Death Mask", unfortunately. Faceless, looks like an elephant head, and somehow makes your paragon/renegade speech scores higher.
- Inverted by Slaaneshi cultists in Warhammer 40,000: their clothing (what little of it there is) tends towards hideous clashing colors which produce a stronger reaction than any sort of protection. The Emperor's Children are a Slaneeshi Legion whose armor is painted pink and black because it's one of the few combinations that still attracts their attention.

- weapons only (Final Fantasy)
- weapons and shields, (Final Fantasy X)
- different item specific ones (Like Dragon Quest VIII or Dragon Quest III where only a few pieces of equipment will change the character model.)
- Weapons (or even gear) that only show the one you have equipped in battle cutscenes only show their default or nothing at all. (Final Fantasy XIII)
- Full on show everything (Dragon Quest IX) when these still let you mix and match its Rainbow Pimp Gear.
