9 of gaming’s most memorable outfit changes

Gaming’s memorable outfit changes

Roland Barthes once said that “Fashion experiences itself as a right, the natural right of the present over the past,” and there’s no denying that an outfit change can completely usurp a video game, making all previous outfits and vibes null. Major style moments play a huge role in setting a game’s tone and expectations, even though you might not immediately notice a game’s fashion while playing it. Think about Kirby using a Copy Ability to put on a jaunty little hat – not only does he gain impressive powers, but his previous defenseless form is replaced completely. The same can be said for Persona 5’s Joker, who awakens as a Phantom Thief with a bat-winged mask stuck over his bleeding eyes, completely transforming him from an ineffectual high schooler. And let’s not forget that Bayonetta was introduced as a veiled nun, but her catsuit changes are far more memorable.

Without further ado, here are 9 of gaming’s most memorable outfit changes:

  1. Mario’s Tanooki Suit (Super Mario Bros. 3)
  2. Samus’s Varia Suit (Metroid)
  3. Cloud’s Cross-Dressing (Final Fantasy VII
  4. Link’s Bunny Hood (The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask)
  5. Bayonetta’s Costume (Bayonetta)
  6. Dante’s Devil Trigger (Devil May Cry)
  7. Joker’s Phantom Thief outfit (Persona 5)
  8. Aerith’s Dress (Final Fantasy VII)
  9. Ellie’s Winter Gear (The Last of Us Part II)
