* Similarly, in ''Film/TheInvisibleMan'' while the character is implicitly stated to be nude, he leaves shoe prints in the snow. This is an interesting SpecialEffectsFailure.[[note]]The footprints were done by pulling footprint-shaped cutouts out of the floor of the set, letting the fake snow collapse into them; either through miscommunication or the need to get the job done quickly, simple shoe prints were done instead of more complex bare footprints.[[/note]]

* The plot of [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12737056/1/Beware-Of-What-You-Can-t-See this]] ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' fanfic revolves around Dib discovering a spell that turns the user invisible, but excludes their clothing. [[GenreSavvy He's too aware about the potential downfalls to use it]], but Gaz is more willing to take the risk. As thus, HilarityEnsues.

* [[AvertedTrope averted]] in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'': Violet powers don't normally affect clothing, but she gets [[MySuitIsAlsoSuper a super-suit]] rather than having to take this option.

* The TropeMaker would be Creator/HGWells' ''Literature/TheInvisibleMan'', who hides from the rioting peasants by stripping naked. In winter. [[UnbuiltTrope One of the few examples to take into account the elements, as well as other things such as being unable to walk amongst a crowd (people would step on him and hit him with waving arms/purses/packages/etc.), having to avoid mud (it sticks to the feet), etc., etc.]] FridgeLogic suggests that Griffin was holding the IdiotBall when his actions created this trope, as the original novel's invisibility-induction process also worked on ''white fabrics''. Griffin was always a bit of a nutcase, so his failure to create a suit of invisible clothes may have been a simple oversight. (Later adaptations avert this problem by making the source of his invisibility a drug, effective only on living things.)

* The residents of Raincliff in the ''Mystery Trackers'' installment ''Raincliff's Phantoms'' are all afflicted in this way, and cover themselves from head to toe in order to conceal their invisibility.
** This carries over into ''VideoGame/DetectivesUnited'', a CrisisCrossover spinoff, in which one of the eponymous detectives is Agent Brown. He's a native of Raincliff and has been invisible since childhood. The series doesn't call much attention to the streaking aspect, but it's there.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'': Toru "Invisible Girl" Hagakure can usually be "seen" as either a floating school uniform, or in her superhero outfit, which is just a pair of shoes and gloves. To be truly effective with her powers, these come off when she needs to get completely stealthy. She [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl usually doesn't mind having to go naked]], but [[OurNudityIsDifferent feels embarrassed if people watch her undress]]. Also, on one occasion, a character [[AccidentalPervert accidentally bumps into her]] when she's naked as she freaks out as if he did it on purpose. Later chapters of the story hint that Toru has some sort of [[LightEmUp light-manipulation ability]], with one side effect of that being constant invisibility.

Like him, they were ''permanently'' invisible.

Added DiffLines:

* Similar to most other devil fruits in ''Franchise/OnePiece'', Absalom's invisibility powers affect his clothing for simplicity's sake. However, they go even further than that, allowing him to grab people to make them vanish while kidnapping them, or strapping bazookas to his arms to give the illusion of being able to emit [[HandBlast hand blasts]].

Added DiffLines:

* Averted in ''Series/GilligansIsland'', when Gilligan, trying to be cured of another condition, gets struck by [[LightningCanDoAnything Magic Lightning]] and turns invisible along with his usual outfit. Later, just as he insults the Skipper, he starts to slowly turn visible again. Since he doesn't know it, when the Skipper lunges for him, he jumps to the side. The Skipper then stops and moves back in front of him. Cue the OhCrap expression on Gilligan.

* Classically averted in ''ComicBook/FantasticFour''. Sue's always been able to extend her field to whatever mundane outfit she has on (and much further if she so chooses). However, it's played straight a few times in the movies for {{Fanservice}}.

* In the 1992 ''WesternAnimation/TheAddamsFamily'' episode "Hide and Go Lurch", one of the ways Gomez and Fester attempted to prevent Lurch from finding them was by turning themselves invisible. The invisibility formula didn't affect their clothes, so they had to disrobe, only for Lurch to again succeed in finding them.
