* * In the Franchise/SherlockHolmes-meets-UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper film ''Film/MurderByDecree'', Holmes weaponizes his trademark scarf by weighing it down and swinging it like a cudgel.

** Adorabell Dearhart, AKA "Spike", AKA "Killer", has stiletto heals that can punch through two reinforced layers of cured leather and a human foot and still embed themselves into an oak floor board.

* In ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', aside from the actual arsenal of HiddenWeapons Mousse carries in his robes, his shoes also hide toe-blades, toe-pins, and eagle-like talons, while the frame of his glasses incorporates RazorFloss with a hook at the end. Whether Ryouga's "flying razor" bandannas and sword-belt constitute this or ClothingCombat depends on the reader's interpretation of ''how'' he performs such feats.



to:

* ''ComicBook/DoomPatrol'': Codpiece was told that he wasn't big enough in HighSchool, and though the girl who said it meant his height, he thought she meant his... penis. Due to an inferiority complex about the size of his wiener, he created a suit with a codpiece weapon system and became a supervillain. Yes, you read that right: his primary weapon is a weaponized codpiece.



to:

* ''Manga/BakiTheGrappler'' includes a very grisly example with the villain Hector Doyle, a serial killer escaped from death row. Doyle has several boxcutting razors fixed to the inside of his shirt collar, so when an opponent grabs him by his collar he shreds his fingers.


* The masked bride-killer in the 2018 TV movie ''Film/VowsOfDeceit'' (aka ''Deadly Matrimony'') wears a ''custom-designed outfit'' with extendable cable hooks sewn into the shoulders. These can be fitted with either a harness or wrist restraints, and are used to [[Main/{{Sadist}} trap victims in place while they're killed]].

* ''[[ComicBook/RobinSeries Robin]]'': Tim modified his cape so that when it detached he could push a button and it would wrap around and cling to whatever was touching it, which made it a convenient way to take down and detain mooks while fighting.

Some people just don't carry weapons into their fights - not because they actually [[BarefistedMonk fight with bare hands]], but because their armoury have actually been incorporated into their normal clothing.
The use of such clothing is not limited to the functions of RuleOfCool, but it also gives the wearer a pass in places where weapons are not normally allowed, since the weapons in question are all but invisible to casual observers.
